I am so pleased to welcome all students back to school after a wonderful summer break. I am Melanie MacDonald, your child's principal. This will be my 6th year as an administrator of Bayview Education Centre. I was also heavily involved in the Student Services program in our school.
I am really looking forward to getting to know the new parents/guardians that have joined us this year. There are currently 23 new primary students. Each and every one of them are very special and have had a wonderful start to their school year.
I would also like to invite all parents to come join us any time as a visitor in our building. Please feel free to come join us for assemblies, concerts, plays, and sporting events. My door is always open for some quick chats or if preferred a scheduled meeting. Of course, I am always looking for parent volunteers. Just let me know if you are interested and I can go over the new Volunteer Policy and Procedures.
The most important person in your child's life is YOU. You are his or her first teacher. Reading at home, asking your child about the school day, and checking over papers and folders all help your child succeed. It is also very important that your child arrives at school on time everyday. School begins at 8:40. If your child arrives late (8:40 or after), you will need to come into the office to sign him/her in.
Please feel free to call me at 902-787-5220 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's have a wonderful year!!!
Principal Bayview Education Centre
