Dear Bondarians;

This week was Education Week in Ontario.  Within this week we always take time to thank our Teachers and Support Staff. We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the phenomenal staff we have at Roberta Bondar School.

If we were in our school building we would take this opportunity to highlight  all that our staff do for students everyday: the morning greetings, the assemblies and special events, dedication to planning interesting and engaging lessons, the professional learning to help more students fully access the curriculum, the time spent during breaks to provide extra help or to run clubs and activities. In the office, we would be talking about how Ms Dawn, Ms Jennifer, and Ms Linda complete hundreds of callbacks and all the administrative tasks, while always stopping whatever they’re doing to attend to students, parents, and other visitors to the office, making sure that each one of them is treated like the Most Important Visitor that day. And of course, we would be talking about Mr Ott and the rest of the custodial team, and all that they do to keep our school and grounds safe, clean, and ready for students everyday.

With our building being closed and staff at home; the Bondar team continues to be amazing! They are collaborating with each other, learning how to navigate this new environment, providing feedback to students and parents, along with finding ways to reach out to our students and parents to support at-home learning, and advocating for families during this very challenging time.  

Even though our 2020 Education Week may look different, the way the Roberta Bondar staff have reached out to and supported our school community during this time reminds us how fortunate we are to lead and support such an amazing team. We want to thank each of the educators and support staff who serve the Roberta Bondar community!

Be well & stay safe! Have a good weekend.

Deb Woods and Jeff Griesbach
