Message from Mrs. Reesor and Ms. Andrews:
This will be my final newsletter with Clarksdale and I wanted to thank you for a wonderful 5 years of learning and growth for students, staff and for me personally. I am proud of the successes we have seen within the school, some of which are visible as we walk through our improved physical facilities, but also those that are felt such as the growth in our culture of communication, support and a focus on supporting our students' success. I am honoured to have worked with such a caring and hardworking staff and committed and engaged parents. And of course, I will miss all of the wonderful students who are the reason we are here each day. I will miss my Clarksdale family and wish you all continued success in the years ahead.
I also wish a sincere welcome to Ms. Shelly Andrews, who will be joining Mr. Johnston and Clarksdale beginning Friday, January 31st. She will be a wonderful addition to our team and will quickly feel a part of this fabulous team. Please see Ms. Andrew's message below.
Hello Clarksdale! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and thank everyone for the warm reception I've already received during my visits to the school. I'm excited to be the new principal of Clarksdale school. Your reputation precedes you as a wonderful school community, full of heart. To help you get to know me a little better, I will share that I was a teacher for 18 years having taught all grades from Kindergarten to Gr. 8. I have been an administrator for 8 years, working throughout the Halton School Board. When I'm not working, I enjoy time with my 2 teenage daughters. I look forward to getting to know all of the students, families and staff in the coming days. Mrs. Reesor and I will continue to be in touch in order to ensure a smooth transition for all. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
Warm regards, Shelly Andrews
