Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!

At Earl Buxton School we believe that educating our students is a collective responsibility, shared by students and their families, school staff and the entire community.  Through a collaborative approach in working together with you as partners, we will maximize the potential of all students. We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support high academic and behavioural expectations, capitalizing on the value of strong relationships.

You will find a copy of our student and parent information guide on this website. We created it as a framework for working together as a school community and continue to revise it based on our needs and experiences. Our handbook contains much information related to our expectations, processes and procedures. We ask that all parents review this document with their child(ren) each year.  

As a school, we use SchoolZone as our primary mode of communication and we encourage our parents to check SchoolZone daily to receive timely information.

I look forward to working with each one of you, and together we will soar to ensure that all of our students learn at high levels as responsible, productive and engaged citizens within the global community.

Yours in Partnership, 

Letitia Carter

 

 

Welcome

Our student population is organized into two morning and one afternoon Kindergarten classes and eighteen classes of students from Grades 1-6, both in-school and online, for the 2021-2022 school year.

The School Council plays a very active role in supporting the school. The rate of volunteerism by parents is extremely high.
