Dear Plum Tree Families,
As this school year comes to an end, I would like to say what a pleasure it has been to serve as Principal at Plum Tree. Your ongoing support and involvement at Plum Tree is greatly valued and a key component of our student success. It is important to take time to reflect on all the wonderful experiences and accomplishments that your child has had this year and celebrate their learning.
I would like to thank and say a warm farewell to our School Council Chair, Kim Panek for her leadership and contributions to Plum Tree's school community over the past 11 years.
In addition, I want to extend a sincere thank you to our School Council Executive: Krish Karunakaran, Ahmad Waseem, Victoria McCarley, Roni Khangura, Maria Ahmad Mirza, Karen Martin, Vanessa Woodburn and Shalini Rajhans as well as all the parents involved on our School Council and those who volunteered at Plum Tree throughout the year to support student success on a daily basis.
We strongly value the partnership between the school and home, and appreciate all the continued support of our parent community.
At this time, I would also like to acknowledge and say farewell to the following staff members who are leaving Plum Tree and moving on to new school locations, or other opportunities:
On behalf of the Plum Tree staff, we would like to thank the above individuals for their contributions to Plum Tree and wish them well.
