Welcome to Kinnwood Central School!
I am pleased and excited to have the opportunity to work with the students and families of this community. Having started my teaching career in North Lambton and having spent approximately three quarters of my teaching career in the surrounding area, I was proud and excited to come to Kinnwood Central as its principal. I have enjoyed renewing old acquaintances and building new partnerships here at the school and look forward to working closely with students and parents over the next few years.
Providing a safe place for all students, nurturing self-worth and striving for academic growth and development for all students are important goals at Kinnwood Central. We work to instill feelings of pride and mutual respect and seek out opportunities to promote positive actions and caring behaviour whenever possible.
I am proud to be working with a great staff. Our teachers, secretary, custodians, educational assistants, and early childhood educators are all very dedicated to students. Each staff member plays an important part in your child's daily routine.
Many parents are actively involved in life at the school. Our School Council meets approximately every six weeks to participate in and discuss school wide functions and activities. Parents are invited to attend meetings and get even more involved in their child's educational experience. These meetings are advertised in our monthly newsletter and other events and day-to-day activities can be found in our monthly calendar. We also have a very committed group of parents who are members of our Home and School Association. This group meets monthly to support fundraising and other extracurricular activities throughout the school that support and enhance student learning opportunities.
We believe that working together as a team - staff, parents, and students - is critical to students having a successful educational experience. Feel free to contact the school if there is a concern or a question that you might have, and make plans to attend one of the special activities that occur here at the school. You are welcome to become more involved at any time!
