Welcome to the new school year

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at the Waterloo Region District School Board. I want to welcome students, families and staff with sincere enthusiasm and express my excitement for all the developments and successes that the upcoming school year will bring.  

As we work with parents to support each and every student, we have put together a variety of resources to help you become familiar with school programs, communicate with your child’s teachers and school, and actively engage in their learning.

Our families are partners in every student’s learning journey. We encourage you to become active participants in your child’s education. We hope you stay connected through your school’s website, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

School Councils, the Waterloo Region Assembly of Public School Councils (WRAPSC) and the Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) are important parts of our education system. These parent-driven committees advise on issues related to student success and parent engagement. We invite you to become involved and visit the PIC website for resources and supports.

We promise to continue our focus on student achievement and well-being to support each and every student in reaching their full potential and graduating from our schools and programs. While focusing on learning, we also want our students to experience a sense of belonging in a caring learning environment. We strive to build a culture of innovation that grows students confidence and success as they face the future.

It is our privilege to prepare and inspire our learners to be engaged and contributing global citizens. I want to wish you and your child a successful school year.

Sincerely,

John Bryant
Director of Education
