Welcome Back to School

Dear Nesbitt parents, students and community,

I would like to inform you of an important administrative change that will affect the Nesbitt community. Ms. Darlene Kehyayan has accepted the position of Interim Assistant Director of Pedagogical Services at the EMSB. Consequently, I have accepted the position as Interim Principal of Nesbitt School. I assure you that both Ms. Kehyayan and I will be working collaboratively over the next few days to ensure a smooth transition for all.

It is with excitement and anticipation that I extend a warm welcome to the Nesbitt School community for the 2015-2016 academic year. The new school year is an exciting time to reconnect with old friends, establish new friendships and begin the journey towards academic success.

Throughout my many years of experience as a teacher, Vice Principal and Interim Principal, I have had the opportunity to work closely with many diverse school communities. My goal has always been to address the unique needs of every child by implementing educational projects which promote academic success for all. As we enter a new academic school year, I wish to continue this endeavor in partnership with the Nesbitt School community.

As Interim Principal, I look forward to learning and growing together. I believe the success of every child should be at the heart of every school and is contingent on one essential element; the partnership between administration, teachers, staff, parents, and community. The famous quote, "It Takes a Village to Raise a Child", holds true. Only through collaborative efforts of all stakeholders will our school truly succeed. My goal is to lead all school partners on enhancing our students' educational experiences and promoting their academic growth.

It is an honor and a privilege to be a member of this dynamic school. I am committed to providing the students, parents and community the beast service possible. Please take the time to stop by the school as I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you over the course of the upcoming weeks.

Mrs. Antoinette Scrocca
Interim Principal
