Principal's Message

On behalf of the staff of R.J. Hawkey it is a pleasure to welcome you to an exciting new year of learning!

We have been busy planning and preparing for the arrival of your children.  We are to eager meet them and begin our learning journey together.

Supplies are ready in classrooms but there are some things we’d like your children to bring to school…

  • Love of Learning - including excitement, curiosity, ideas and questions
  • Courage - to be themselves, to try new things, to take risks and to overcome things they are afraid of
  • Honesty - so they can grow confidence and have friendships that flourish
  • Kindness - because happy, caring people learn best

Each member of our school staff will do his or her best to create a culture where your child feels safe, cared for and connected.  We value you as a partner in your child’s education and will strive to communicate with you in ways that are proactive, open and kind.  We know that when we are all committed to working together and doing our best, your children will shine.

Studies show that students are more successful when their parents are actively involved in their schooling and good schools become better when parents are involved.  Please know that you are always welcome in our school.

There is a lot of excitement at the beginning of a new school year, but nothing compares to the fun of seeing your kids run up to the school door.  It is this privilege, the chance to work with your children, which makes our job worthwhile.
