Message from the Principal

At Fitch St. Public School, there is a learning environment that is rich with caring students, staff and parents. Success revolves around setting realistic goals and trying hard to achieve them. I believe every child at Fitch St. can accomplish success in many different areas by goal setting and having the support system to reach their goals. That support system would include family, teachers, educational assistants, support staff, volunteers, and myself to encourage, monitor, and celebrate their efforts in achieving their goals.

It is my vision that our school will be a safe, caring, learning environment for students, staff, and our community. All students are expected to be courteous, co-operative, and respectful in their interactions with other students and staff. A safe, positive nurturing environment is essential in order to challenge children to pursue educational excellence. I am looking forward to witnessing all the personal and group achievements throughout my tenure at this wonderful school called Fitch St. It is with great pride to inform you of our status as a "School on the Move" deemed by the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat of Ontario.

Remember to surround yourself with people that can see the sun even on a cloudy day.

Mrs. J. McDowell - Principal
