As the 2021–22 school year comes to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to express some words of appreciation and a message of hope for the coming year.
Parents/caregivers play a critical role in their child(ren)’s education. This year, in particular, your support was paramount. Thank you for the continued communication between home and school. Much teaching and learning have taken place this year, and we want to express our gratitude for your critical role in supporting education. Thank you.
We also offer a hearty welcome to approximately 100 students and their families who have returned or enrolled in the last three months. The return to school in early April meant a resurgence of many exciting school activities that happened inside and outside the classroom, both during and after school.
As we turn our attention to planning for the next school year, there is much excitement, hope, and opportunity to move the learning forward through relevant, rigorous, and robust teaching and learning. We are conscious of the fact that the pandemic has left an impact in its wake on student learning as well as the mental health and well-being of our students, families, and staff. Our school division continues to collect and analyze student data such as summative assessments, grades, graduation rates, literacy, numeracy, and the recent student well-being survey (Grades 4-12). Data allows us to identify and address gaps in learning and provide appropriate resources through targeted interventions for all as well as student-specific plans. We aim to provide opportunities for growth and success for every child to be and become caring, connected, and contributing members of society. We continue to have incredible pride in our division staff, students, parents and caregivers. I have every confidence in our dedicated and caring staff as we look forward to the learning and opportunities next year will bring us.
On behalf of our educators, support staff, superintendents, and Board of Trustees in the Hanover School Division, we look forward to welcoming you back in September with a renewed sense of hope, positivity, and opportunity for a bright future.
