Principal’s Message 2018-2019 Ryerson Public School

“Building a Culture of Excellence ”

“Together We Are Better”

At Ryerson Public School the staff is committed to working in a spirit of mutual respect and cooperation with students and community partners, to promote a learning environment where students can achieve their full potential. We invite everyone to work together to ensure that all of our students meet success. All programs provided to students at Ryerson are based on the Ontario Curriculum, and on guidelines provided by the Halton District School Board. Assessment and evaluation of students is consistent with both Ministry and HDSB requirements. We are looking forward to a year in which all of our students will experience success. Within a collaborative community partnership, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment, to enable all of our students to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and culturally.

Developing student literacy and numeracy skills is the focus of our programs. However, skills cannot be attained in isolation. We are part of a learning community that provides a safe and secure environment fostering character traits, such as respect and responsibility, while improving student achievement. Each day brings new challenges and opportunities for all of us, and together we become better for these experiences. Welcoming and supporting parents/guardians to take an active role in their child's learning is a key role of a school administrator. Parent involvement is welcomed. Together, we will make your child's years at Ryerson successful.

At Ryerson Public School, we have very high expectations for student behaviour and achievement. Our excellent and dedicated staff works collaboratively with each other, our students, and our parents. We work hard to help students feel comfortable, and show them that we care about them as individuals. Everyone at Ryerson has the responsibility of showing respect for one another as well as oneself through both their words and actions. We believe in the potential and ultimate success of each individual and strive to help all students believe in themselves and achieve their goals.

The 2018-2019 school year will be an exciting one at Ryerson. I would like to welcome all new families to our school and wish all of you a very pleasant school year filled with academic success and enjoyment. I hope that all of our students are looking forward to this school year and that each student will do his or her best to get the most out of each and every school day. Once again, we invite all parents to work closely with us throughout the year. A positive partnership between school and home is so important for the success of our students. Please do not hesitate to contact the school (905-632-1766) should you have any questions or concerns.

Students, have a great school year! Work hard! Be nice! Do your best! Believe in yourself!

Sincere regards,

Mrs. D. Laprade

  • Final words from Principal Laprade

    Final words from Principal Laprade

    "It takes a village to raise a child."  Many thanks for your contributions to our Ryerson Village.  Family support and engagement in a child's education is key.  One last thank you to School Council for being the parent voice of our school community and for all of their initiatives - what a dedicated and hard working group.

    As I retire, I hold all of my Ryerson memories close - not because this was my last school, but because Ryerson is such a special school community . Thank you to all, who have welcomed me and supported my work here.

    Ms. Tracey Pulford, Ryerson's new Principal, has been at the school several times this week making her transition to the school.  She has asked that I share her email, in case you should need to reach her, before school contact information is updated.

    Best regards for a safe and enjoyable summer!

    Mrs. D. Laprade

    New Principal for Ryerson

    As many of you are aware, Mrs. Laprade is retiring at the end of June. At this week’s Board Meeting it was determined that, Ms. J. Paziuk has been recalled to the Ministry and released from the previous appointment to Ryerson, for September.  Ms. Tracey Pullford has been appointed as Ryerson’s next Principal.  She was here at Ryerson today for a tour and met staff and students.  Mrs. Laprade and Ms. Pullford are currently working together on this transition.

    Class assignments for next year: *New This Year* Class assignments will be EMAILED out via our School Messenger system on Friday, August 30th.  

    The Jump Rope results are in - this year Ryerson raised $4535.55 for the Heart and Stroke foundation - amazing!!! Today the staff and students enjoyed the school wide incentive that they earned for raising that amount - 15 minutes of extra recess, with a Dance Party and a Bubble Party!   A good time was had by all! The fundraising 'thank you' gifts from the foundation will be distributed to students who earned them early next week. Thanks again to the Ryerson Community for supporting our Jump Rope for Heart event this year!

    Medication/Epipen pick up/drop off-  Parents of students who have medication, epipens, or inhalers stored in the office should arrange to pick them up during the last day of school (or let us know if you would like them sent home with your child). Epi-pens, inhalers, etc. for NEXT YEAR can be dropped off to the school beginning August 26th.

    Lost & Found:  Stop in to check out the lost & found. Unclaimed items will be donated to charity.

    • Character Trait assembly will celebrate Optimism and Mrs. LaRiviere’s Gr. 2 class will introduce Courage as our new learning focus for June.  Courage: the ability to do something that is challenging or frightening. The ability to find strength in the face of a challenge.

    • As the weather is warming and we are seeing the sun more often, you are reminded to apply sunscreen at home and provide appropriate footwear for active participation at recess and in the gym.  Flip flops, crocs and sandals create safety concerns and restrict participation.

    • Calling all volunteers!  We appreciate everything that you do for Ryerson.  Please join us to be recognized on June 10th.
