“Semper ad meliore”
I think that Charles Dickens must have been imagining the high school experience when he wrote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”
As our children grow up and approach adulthood there will be moments of joy and moments of despair. It is important to remember that the entire Massey-Vanier team is here to support you and your children as they navigate adolescence.
The beginning of the year is a time for students to set goals and work on building their futures. It is important to reflect on our successes and failures, to take what has been learned, and to work toward improvement. Each year should be more rewarding than the last.
Remember that each of us is part of the Massey-Vanier community and each has an important role to play in making our community one of which we can all be proud. Our goal at Massey-Vanier is to create a positive learning environment in which every student can learn. In order to help us achieve this goal we need you to work collaboratively with us.
I wish all of you the very best of luck this year and remember we are here to help.
