Welcome to Little Falls Public School! What a great place to be! On behalf of our entire school staff, we are excited to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year.
At Little Falls, we pride ourselves in creating a positive and inclusive learning environment where all kids have space to grow to their true potential. This year, we will be serving approximately 465 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. We believe that learning is a responsibility shared by the school, students, home and the greater community. Our focus will continue to be student academic achievement and well being, encouraging students to take advantage of the many extra-curricular opportunities offered at the school and the continued development of the ten character attributes espoused by the Avon Maitland District School Board. We will foster skills and create opportunities for our students to learn, practice and value the attributes of respect, empathy, courage compassion, responsibility, perseverance, optimism, honesty, fairness and integrity within themselves and others. We are excited to continue to grow our community connections as each of our classrooms have the opportunity to extend their learning outdoors and use our natural world as an extension of their classroom.
We have a wonderfully active Parent Community. Our School Council has dedicated great time and effort to raise funds so that our students are provided with a wide variety of extended technological and academic opportunities. Our School Council has fundraised to allow our students to participate in the Kiwanis Music Festival, for school performances, student planners, class trips, swimming, skating, technology, outdoor equipment and classroom resources. We are so fortunate to have an amazing group of dedicated families.
We welcome parents and community partners to join our committees and to volunteer in our daily programs and excursions. If you would like to join our Little Falls volunteer community, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or the office staff.
Whether you are new to Little Falls this year or you have shared your children with us for many years, thank you! We are privileged to have the opportunity to learn and grow with your children each day.
We are looking forward to a great year!
Erin Cassone, Principal
