Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Mrs. Heather Gagnier and I’m very excited to be working with our wonderful kindergarteners. Kindergarten is your child's first introduction to formal education, and it is important to make these first impressions positive and lasting. In our kindergarten class we are loved and valued for our unique gifts. We are challenged to try new things and stretch our brains. We are supported in areas where learning is difficult for us. We learn to care for ourselves, our families, our community and our amazing world. If you have any questions please contact me at email@example.com.
Our Kindergarten is a full day program. Here is a Kindergarten daily schedule so that you can understand what we are learning each day!
For more information about our program and to book an appointment to review our application process, please contact Director of Operations, Gaileen Woytko at 604-434-5844 ext. 137 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello! My name is Mrs. Bobie Tremblay and I am the Grade One teacher. I am a huge proponent of play and outdoor learning. My favourite part of our learning is Forest Days, a child-led and play-based day each week that uses nature as a classroom, not just a field trip, allowing children time to explore and learn naturally. I am excited about the new opportunities that this year and your children will bring to my classroom.
The best way to contact me is by email at email@example.com or you can leave a message at 604-434-5844 ext. 106
Welcome to Ms. Nadica Paunovski’s class! I am the Grade 2 teacher and I am so excited to get to know my new students and their families! I am excited to take my class on new learning adventures this year. In my class every child is valued as a unique, special, and talented individual. As Pablo Picasso stated “Every child is an artist…” I believe that every child needs to be recognized and supported to grow. They need opportunities to discover and express themselves. I look forward to all the collaborative learning and fun educational opportunities that await us! I enjoy working with parents to help foster students' academic, emotional, and spiritual growth. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.

French 5-10, Socials Studies 6
Welcome to the world of French! My name is Rachelle Rusk and this year I will be teaching French to Grades 5 through 10, as well as Socials Studies to Grade 6. I am very excited to be using the AIM program (Accelerative Integrated Methodology) to teach French. This program uses gestures, drama, music, dance, and storytelling to help students learn a foreign language rapidly. I look forward to hearing your students express themselves in French from the first lesson using high-frequency vocabulary learned in visual, auditory, and kinesthetic ways. We are going to have so many fun learning adventures ‘‘en francais” this year! Please feel free to contact me by email at email@example.com.
