Mr. Anderson and I would like to wish everyone a big Welcome Back to Hanley School this fall. We’ve had a great start to the year with a lot happening around the school for students to get involved in. Welcome to our new teachers, Mr Josh Watson (Grade 6 Homeroom), Mrs Colleen Trach (Senior Spec Ed), Ms Rachel Anderson (Home Ec mornings), and welcome back to Ms Angela Rancourt (Grade 4/5 Homeroom). Hanley School also is pleased to include four interns on our staff this fall. Welcome to Miss Jamie Rugg working with Mrs Sara Prakash, Miss Jessalyn Clark working with Mr Brett Kirk, Mrs Jennifer Kinzel working with Mrs Nicole Bain, and Mr Todd Cavanaugh working with Mr Heath Tyndall. Each of them are having a busy but very good start this fall we’re very happy to have you here. We have a number of extra curricular programs in full swing already this year to make you aware of: Senior and Junior Girls Volleyball, 6- Man Football, Cross Country, Senior 7vs7 Soccer, and Senior Golf. Good luck to all the teams on your efforts this year.
The Welcome Back Breakfast last week was a good chance to meet some parents, and we’re happy to announce that the School Community Council is again organizing the Meet the Staff supper and evening tomorrow, September 22, starting at 5:30pm. I want to invite everyone out to enjoy a burger with us so we can get to know each other better. To start it off here’s some information about me: your new Hanley School principal grew up in a few places around the province, but went to junior and senior high school at Outlook. My wife, Kara, works in Saskatoon at Brickers Shoes, and our son, Gavin, will be two years old in October. I’ve been teaching for 17 years and have spent the last ten working vice principal and principal positions, the last four years in Colonsay. I know already that Hanley School is an awesome school for each of your children to be in and I’m proud to be here. I can say this because the people I work with are genuinely concerned about all the students and their success, and the students clearly enjoy their school atmosphere. So, drop in to see Mr Anderson and me sometime. We’d love to say Hi.
Takecare and I’ll talk to you soon.
Mr. Chris Tucker
