Principal's Message

Greetings, Salaam, Bonjour, Washtay, Blossom Park Community!

On behalf of all of the staff at Blossom Park PS, welcome to school! This is an exciting time of year for families as we prepare to transition your child(ren) to school either for the first time or after a long summer break!

Our custodial team, led by Helena Francisco, has worked very hard over the summer to prepare the school for our students and community. We have freshly painted hallways, a new portable, and clean classrooms to help set us up for a successful year. Teachers and staff have been in the school this past week preparing lessons and classrooms for learning!

We welcome several new staff members to our team: Mr. Ruhland will be one of our support teachers; Mme Amina-Sahraoui joins us in the Middle French Immersion program; Mrs. Parise- Sow joins the primary team; Ms. Myers and Ms. Schankula are the educator team who will open the new Kindergarten class; Ms. Palmer will work with Mrs. Anderson in room 101 Kindergarten; Ms. Kelsey McGuire will replace Ms. Downton during her maternity leave; and Mme Shohdy will fill in for Ms. Storey this year. We also welcome back Mr. Clubine who will be joining our team as an English to French Immersion teacher.

And, of course, I am also a new addition to the school team! I have been an administrator for the past 4 years in the OCDSB, and am very happy to join the team at Blossom Park PS. Two of my guiding beliefs are: that children would if they could and strong family-school partnerships help all children be the best that they can be. If you would like to see me, my door is always open.

Over the summer, the new provincial government made some announcements that will impact our work in education. However, Our District remains committed to supporting and acting in the best interest of our students to ensure their health, safety and inclusion in a manner that reflects the required school board Human Rights and Equity policies. At Blossom Park PS, we will continue to create a safe, warm, welcoming and inclusive learning environment for your child(ren).

I am looking forward to a great year of learning!


Ms. Thériault
