South Hull Elementary School

June Newsletter

Dear parents:

It is hard to believe that another school year has come and gone.  I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on the past year.  I would like to thank all the staff, the many parents and the volunteers who so freely gave of their time and resources.  Their contributions have greatly enriched our school lives at South Hull in so many ways. 

I must first congratulate all of our graduating Cycle 3, Year 2 students.  Their hard work and determination will ensure their success in the future.  Moving on to Junior High School is an exciting and challenging period in their lives.  Our teachers and staff at South Hull join me in wishing them every success in the future.

South Hull School is a very special place.  Our dedicated teachers work tirelessly to create an atmosphere that makes learning fun!  I want to thank my staff, including the secretaries, the custodians and the classroom aides for their dedication throughout the year.  As well, I would like to thank our terrific team in the Daycare; their continuing efforts have made the before school, lunch time, and after school periods a pleasurable time for our students.  Thank you to “Peggy” our cafeteria lady for providing our lunches.  I know you will join me in thanking everyone for a job well done. 

I would like to thank our Home and School Association for their hard work and dedication raising money to benefit our school.   As well, thank you to our Governing Board Committee for their contribution throughout the school year.

I want to extend a sincere thank you to the library volunteers for the enormous number of hours spent keeping the library up and running.

Finally, I would like to congratulate every student for the effort they put into their learning. 
Have a great summer everyone!

Judy Millar, Principal
