Principal’s Address

Dear SMP families,

I am very excited for the new school year to begin!  I hope that you all had a safe and relaxing summer, and are ready to get the school year started.

As SMP continues to grow, parking is definitely going to be a challenge this year.  I ask you all to be patient and kind, and please follow our parking requests.  Parents should not be parking in the staff parking lot or using it as a drop off area.  This is for safety reasons as we have many students who walk through our parking lots coming to school and our school yard is right next to our parking lot.  Parents are invited to kiss & drop their students in the bus loop, however parents must be quick with this if they are going to drop off in the bus loop.  We have 4 busses who use our bus loop.  Please give them priority as the loop is for them.  Parents are also invited to park in the bus loop in the labelled parking spots, on the road and in the Church parking lot.

This year we start our Leader In Me journey!  We are very excited for SMP to become a LIM School, thanks to the very generous donation by Tzu Chi Canada.

Once again, I am so excited for this school year!  Please stop by and say HI!

God bless…

Lou Ann Demers-Noble
