Welcome back - message from Superintendent Bennett

Welcome back everyone – I hope you enjoyed a great summer and I wish you all a wonderful 2017-2018 school year.

Thank you in advance to parents, families, community members, organizations and businesses for your time and involvement in education. Together we are able to provide students with a wide range of engaging learning opportunities in safe and caring facilities and we are grateful for the collaborative nature of our school communities. Your involvement makes a significant difference in the overall operation and atmosphere of our schools as it also translates to a strong sense of community and support. This is noticed and greatly appreciated by students and staff and we thank you for all you do.

As always, our focus is to ensure that students are provided with engaging learning experiences that cultivate deep learning, inner reflection and of course, find ways to make learning enjoyable for students. Specifically, we will continue to implement the Response to Intervention process in all our schools, flexible learning environments in our high schools, wellness initiatives and technology integration. We are committed to ensure students are provided with opportunities to work as a team, to be mentors, leaders, and get involved in the community.  With the guidance of our dedicated staff, students are provided with the support and conditions that allow them to reach their full potential in all they do.  

Student safety is always our number one concern and on this important note, a copy of a letter we issued in May regarding how families will be contacted in the event of an emergency can be found HERE. Kindly re-read this information and should you have any questions, please contact your school principal.  

Thank you again for your support in education and from all of us at Peace River School Division, we wish you all a fantastic 2017-2018 school year.

Paul Bennett, PRSD Superintendent
