Edmonton Public Schools’ tagline conveys the message that regardless of a student’s background or ability, they will receive a high quality education that will lay the foundation for success in school and beyond. It is an all encompassing message that says: Everybody’s in. Everybody has the right to a bright future.
We at Gold Bar, together with Edmonton Public Schools as a District, are committed to providing learning experiences that engage and provide opportunities for success for each and every student! We have a vision that all students will one day graduate from high school. This speaks of our commitment in EPS and more specifically at Gold Bar School, to teaching and learning that meets the needs of all learners. Our decisions, all of them, whether it is about staffing, class organizations, purchasing resources etc. all come back to this…what is going to promote success for all the learners at Gold Bar, here and now?
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back all the families that have been part of Gold Bar in previous years and to welcome the new families that are just becoming part of the Gold Bar learning community this year. Gold Bar defines the phrase ‘partners in learning’ through the committed efforts of staff, students, and parents working together to ensure positive learning opportunities for each and every child. Thank you parents and community members for the partnership.
Open communication is very important to a community working together. My door is open. Please come by to say hello, share ideas, or discuss issues as they may arise. Listening and problem solving, I believe, are two strengths I bring to my position of Principal.
Wishing you all a wonderful year of learning.
Your partner in learning,
Seize the day!
