From the Principal's Desk
School is almost over for the 2013 - 2014 school year.
As the school year draws to a close, as I always say, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the wonderful, special people in the Rickson Ridge community – the students, the parents and the staff.
Students - you have had tremendous growth this year in your academics, behaviour, sports and extra activities. We have enjoyed watching you grow and learn ! Our best wishes for our graduating classes as you go forth to your new schools. Continue to work hard in your new schools and you will have great success. We wish you the very best.
Staff - thank you to the staff for your hard work and dedication to student learning and achievement. We all will miss the staff members that are going on to other things.
Parents and Community - thank you again for your daily, ongoing support of our programs and activities. A special thank you to the hard working parent volunteers who have consistently supported our school. You have all helped make Rickson Ridge a ‘real community’.
Thank you very much parents, guardians and members of the Rickson Ridge community for the wonderful experience of being Principal at Rickson Ridge Public School. As you already know, I am retiring at the end of the current school year. I have so entirely enjoyed my time with the Upper Grand District School Board and will sincerely miss the Rickson Ridge students, parents and staff.
Rickson Ridge is a special community with a warm, caring nature – from the first welcomes on my arrival to all of the terrific farewell telephone and personal messages over the past weeks, the strong sense of caring and community has permeated every aspect of my role here.
On behalf of the parents, volunteers, school council, staff and students, I welcome Sue Guest once again to her position as Principal of Rickson Ridge.
I wish everyone the very best and I know that Rickson Ridge will continue to bring caring and learning together in a quality school environment.
Thank you for all your support. I will miss you all.
