A Message from our Principal

As The School Year Comes To A Close

It is hard to believe how quickly this year has gone by.  It doesn't seem that long ago when our students started their first day in September.  Yet, here we are in June getting ready for all the exciting year end activities and the start of the summer holidays.

The end of the school year always brings with it mixed emotions.  First and foremost, there is excitement about summer vacation, a time when our students can pursue outdoor activities and personal interests.  There is also the satisfaction that comes from thinking back on the year's accomplishments and hard work.  Students may reflect fondly on the memories created with their friends, classmates and teachers.  And a tinge of sadness may also arise when they realize they may miss seeing their friends and classmates for the next two months.  Many will look forward to sharing stories of their summer adventures when they see each other again in September in the next grade. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful PAC, and all the parents and grandparents who have shown their support in so many ways.  Also, there is a debt of gratitude to our Barrowtown teachers and staff who have worked very hard to make this year memorable and successful for our students.  Finally, I would like to congratulate all of our children for their successes, accomplishments and contributions to the school, because it is they --along with our teachers and parents/grandparents -- who make Barrowtown School a wonderful place to learn and grow.

In closing, I would like to congratulate our grade 5 students who are now moving onto middle school.  They have made us all proud.  I wish you and your family a very relaxing and fun summer holiday.   -Terry Jung (Principal)
