To the our STAR parents and Guardians:
We are now well into our second semester at Sullivan Heights. Our students have settled into their classes and we’re all looking forward to many more great learning opportunities this semester.
As we start our second semester, I would like to formally welcome a few new STARS to our teaching staff. Welcome to Mr. Lo who has joined our Science and Planning Departments, to Mr. Maretz to our Math and Science Departments, to Ms. Kim to our English and LST Departments, and to Ms. Quenneville to our Drama Department. On the administrative front, as you have probably already heard, we now have a new vice principal, Ms. Sue Beyer. We are very fortunate to have Ms. Beyer join our Sullivan Family. She comes to us from Maple Ridge where she worked as school counselor. She brings with her a wealth of experience and expertise. She is replacing Mr. Ranu who left us to continue his good work at Kwantlan Park Secondary. We wish Mr. Ranu well and continued success in his new position.
As you should already know, we are well into our course selection process for next year. Our counselors thank you for playing such an active role in helping your children navigate the decision-making process of course selection for graduation and post-secondary entrance. If you should have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s course selection or graduation plan, please contact your child’s counselor.
Interim Reports, Honour Roll certificates and Super “G” awards went home on March 6th. Congratulations to all the students who made the Honor Roll and or earned a Super “G” award. You can access our Honour Roll and Super “G” lists on our website at http://goo.gl/KkPD4 If you didn’t receive an interim or if you have concerns about your child’s progress, please contact your child’s teacher.
In recognition of some of the great work and activities taking place at Sullivan Heights, I have put together a brief summary of events from the past few months that can be viewed at http://goo.gl/ykf7R. As you can see we are a busy place full of many activities and learning experiences. I am proud to say that our enthusiastic and engaging staff maintain a high standard of professionalism and make Sullivan Heights a great place for learning. What goes with this of course is the integrity and character of all our students. Every day I am flooded with smiles, positive enthusiasm and energized students who actively engage in their learning.
On the parent advisory front, our PAC meetings have been well attended and are taking place on the last Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in our Library. I encourage all parents to come get involved. Join our PAC meetings and you’ll get information updates and get a feel for the pulse of the school. Information about our PAC can be found at http://goo.gl/dDPCD.
As we all move into our two-week spring vacation, from all of us at Sullivan Heights, we wish you and yours a very safe and restful Spring Break. To all of our parents and guardians, we thank you for playing such an active role in your child’s education. Your commitment to actively engaging in our school community and ensuring your children get to school on time goes long way in helping all our students be successful.
Have a great two-weeks and we’ll see you on Tuesday April 2nd.
