Message from the Principal

Dear Gregory Drive Community,

Welcome to Gregory Drive Public School where we are more than just a school; we are a family!  Gregory Drive Public School has a reputation of excellence and I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to join such an amazing school community. As the principal of GDPS, I am looking forward to working with you and your child to provide an outstanding educational experience for both current and future families that walk through our school doors.  My goal, and the goal of GDPS staff, is to create a safe, supportive, cooperative place of learning for all of our students - an environment where we celebrate diversity and develop a climate of respect, while encouraging our students to continuously strive for their personal best.   


I am a firm believer that the parents and guardians of our students play a vital role in the learning experience.  I encourage parents and guardians to be active participants in the daily learning activities and school experiences of their children.  An open, two-way path of communication is critical and I value strong partnership between parents, guardians and the school.  I am committed to working with you and our community stakeholders to foster a positive educational experience for every student, every day!  Working together we can make a big difference in the lives of our children.


I am so excited to be working with a creative and dynamic staff that is committed to every child's success.  GDPS staff has a strong commitment to student achievement and well-being, and throughout the year your child will be provided with many opportunities to grow intellectually, socially and emotionally within a framework emphasizing a positive self-concept.

I look forward to being part of the Gregory Drive Community.

Let the learning begin! 


Mrs. T. Lessard
