June Message


Can you believe this school year is almost done? We are having a terrific year because of all the support all the members of our learning community have shown the school. I want to say thank you.

Firstly, I want to thank the parents for your support. I would especially like to thank all the
members of School Council and the Parent Fundraising Committee. Without all their hard
work our school would not be the great place it is. Secondly, thank you to the staff for the
countless hours here at the school planning lessons or the many events. Thank you to the
staff for everything, whether it is the many events they organize, the excellent work in
creating positive learning environments, or the simple ways they care for all the students
here at OLA. Last, but not least, thank you to the students. You are truly a great, positive
group of people. Our future is bright in your hands. Every day you are accomplishing our
school motto, “Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow, Living our Faith.”

June traditionally brings some goodbyes to staff and some welcomes to new staff. First the goodbyes, on behalf of the learning community of Our Lady of the Assumption School we say goodbye to Mrs. Motycka, Mrs. Homan, Mrs. Neufeld, Ms. Wallace, and Mrs. Driscoll. Mrs. Motycka and Mrs. Homan have decided to retire and Mrs. Neufeld will be moving away. We hope to see Ms. Wallace continue her teaching career in Holy Spirit Catholic Schools. Mrs. Driscoll will be finishing her temporary contract with us. We thank you Mrs. Motycka, Mrs. Homan, Mrs. Neufeld, Ms. Wallace, and Mrs. Driscoll for sharing your many gifts with our school. Your dedication to Catholic Education is an inspiration to all of us. You will all be missed. Please do not become strangers, the doors of our school are always open to you and we hope you will visit us.

I am pleased to announce the following teachers will be joining us next year.
– Mrs. Annie Greeno – transferring from Ecole St. Mary School
– Mrs. Andrea Nemecek – transferring from Ecole St. Mary School
– Mrs. Christine Baptista – transferring from Father Leonard Van Tighem School
– Ms. Jaclyn Groten – transferring from St. Patrick’s Fine Arts School
We are excited about you joining our community. We wish you a fond welcome everyone,
you will love it here.

sunWe are in the last month of school with year-end field trips, Sports Day, final Mass and
report cards. June is an exciting time for staff and students. On behalf of the staff, we wish
you a healthy and happy sun-filled June.

God Bless,
Greg Kostiuk
