2022-Family Handbook-Rev. August 2022.pdf
My name is Alex Yaychuk and I will once again be your
Acting Principal for the 2022-2023 School year. Having experienced a wonderful
year of learning, growth, and collaboration last year, I am looking forward to
continuing to work with staff, students, and families in the Garden Creek
community. I encourage all to check out the Family Handbook link above for information on our School.
Your Teachers, Educational
Assistants, Administrative Assistants, Custodians, and all support staff are
committed to working together to foster an ideal learning environment that
provides structure and stability to your children’s daily lives. Following an
eventful school year (2021-2022), I have seen firsthand the level of dedication
and awareness that the staff at GC has for their students’ social emotional
wellbeing. When a child feels safe, their ability to take-in, interpret, and
utilize information increases greatly!
We have a number of important
events and dates which will be communicated to you throughout the school year
either by weekly emails or by occasional voicemails. If you are not receiving
these messages, please inform our front office (453-5409). Students will be
bringing home Data Collection Forms along with other pertinent info to be
signed and returned. Our incredible administrative assistants are happy to
assist all families if they have questions on how to complete these.
Lastly, I would like to add that our upcoming ‘Meet the
Teacher Night’ will be conducted in-person at Garden Creek School on Wednesday,
September 21st. This evening will give you a sneak peek into your
child’s new classroom and give you a chance to learn more about the various
learning opportunities that will be taking place. We will begin with a
fundraising BBQ at followed by an opportunity to meet your child’s
teacher in-person. Proceeds from this fundraiser will be
going directly to our Lilypad Legacy Project. I encourage you to check out our
school website for more information, including a video, on this great endeavor.
Stay tuned for more information on specific times as we near the 21st.
Creek is a school that prides itself on providing meaningful experiences that
both inspire and challenge students to discover and appreciate the many joys of
learning. We are excited to showcase this during the course of the 2022-2023
