Message from the Principal
Welcome to the Govans Elementary Family! As principal of Govans Elementary School, I am truly looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year! Having the opportunity to interact daily with our students, parents and staff has always been an honor for me. My faculty and I strive daily to create connections for student success here at Govans. I hope that when you visit our school you will feel our strong sense of community and family pride.
Our staff will continue to focus on providing excellent instruction through clearly stated objectives, structured student engagement, and multiple checks for understanding throughout their lessons every day.
Student connectedness is also a priority for us as it is directly linked to improved academic achievement. It is because of this that Govans Elementary will offer a variety of enrichment activities for students. Our students will be able to feel a sense of significance and belonging through their participation in our Restorative Practices program, various clubs as well as through our STEM focused after-school program.
We look forward to the partnerships that we can create with the various members of our Govans community. I encourage parents and guardians to get involved in their child’s education through the various school committees, school events, and parent meetings.
I look forward to getting to know each of you throughout the school year. It’s going to be a GREAT one!
