Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

October has been an excellent month of learning at Stratford. We were fortunate to have enjoyed mild weather during the past month, and it has been a wonderful opportunity for students to engage in outdoor physical education classes as well as recesses outside. As we move further into the season of autumn, and the mornings become cooler, it will become increasingly important for students to come to school dressed for the weather.

As we near completion of our second month of school, our staff and students have continued to be highly engaged in our work of teaching and learning. October was a busy month at Stratford!

  • October 5 - 9 was Read In Week, and this year’s theme was Tell Me Your Story. It was a great opportunity to celebrate a love of reading with our students, and to encourage students to develop a life-long love of reading. We were pleased that a number of our Grade 9 students shared their love of reading with several elementary classes.
  • Provincial Achievement Test results have been released and have been posted on SchoolZone. We are proud of the excellent achievement of all of our students.
  • Our first elementary character education assembly took place on October 28, highlighting the character trait of Respect. We look forward to learning more about our second foundational character trait, Responsibility, over the next couple of months.
  • Junior high interim reports were released on October 23, and parent meetings for    students deemed to be at risk took place on October 29.
  • October 30 was dress-down day. Students were invited to wear orange and black if they chose, and junior high students had the opportunity to participate in a famous character contest. We had our first Fun Lunch on this day as well, and thank our dedicated volunteer parents who provided this opportunity for our students.

We are also looking forward to a number of important events which will take place during the month of November. Of great importance are our progress reports for the first term of the school year. These will be posted on SchoolZone on Friday, November 27. We will be printing progress reports only as needed, for those parents who do not have access to a computer at home. Please be sure to let the office know if you require a printed copy of the report.

Progress reports provide a snapshot of students’ learning and are a starting point for discussion between teachers and parents.  Parent-teacher conferences will be held during the week of November 30 to December 4.  Classroom teachers will be contacting parents to arrange conference times, and we look forward to seeing each and every one of you on the conference days. Conferences are a vital component of home-school communication, and your attending your child’s conference is an excellent way to be involved in their education and to support their learning.

Next month, we will be reminded of the tremendous sacrifices made by many individuals in order to ensure that we live in a free and democratic nation. At Stratford School, we will demonstrate our respect in a solemn ceremony of remembrance, to be held on Tuesday, November 10 at 10:30 a.m. Parents are most welcome to attend.

Thank you for your continued support of and involvement in your children’s education.


Mrs. Renée McLaws
