Tremendous News!

Wonderful news! Erin Johnston, Prince Street School's principal, has been honoured as one of Canada's best principals by The Learning Partnership. We already knew we had one of the best principals in Canada, but it's awesome that word is spreading.

Here's the CBC PEI story:

My kids say Erin is also famous today.

Three more updates:

  • We have to change the date of the Family Fun Night! It's not possible to host this event on February 9th as planned. :( Sorry for the inconvenience! Please save the date of April 6th and we'll try again.
  • Staff Appreciation Week is coming up on February 13-17 and Prince Street Home & School want to show how much we appreciate the work that our school staff do! We are looking for small items that could be used for a prize draw for teachers and staff. Things like $5 Tim's cards and other small gifts. If you have something to donate, drop it off at the school by February 9th. We are also looking for parents that can prepare snacks for one of the days that week for staff to be able to enjoy in the staff room (P.S. We think Ms. J likes chocolate). If you can bring snacks one day please sign up at the Facebook page or email princestreethomeandschool at gmail dot com. Let's show our support for Prince Street's wonderful staff!
  • Don't forget the next public meeting for the School Review process is taking place at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 1, at Colonel Gray High School.
