September 1, 2016
I would like to welcome back all our students, families, teachers and staff. Once again this year the Nesbitt school community extended a warm welcome to all our returning staff and new staff. I am so proud to be part of this vibrant school and am excited to support the students once again in this learning and growing journey.
The students are off to a great start. They have met their teachers and are eager to make new friends and engage in new learning opportunities.
I would also like to thank the teachers and staff of Nesbitt School for carefully planning and preparing for the arrival of our students. I would also like to extend my appreciation to our caretakers and our secretaries for assisting the Nesbitt School staff and administration in getting the school ready for the start of the new school year. Everyone’s contribution has been invaluable.

All written requests will be processed by the school board as of November. I also thank you for your assistance in returning unused passes which may be forwarded to other students in need.
