Message from the Principal

Dear Martha Cullimore School Families,

It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to welcome you to our school! We are extremely proud of the programs we offer our students and we encourage Cougars to make the most of their time with us. It is our goal to work together to promote the development of a vibrant community that shares a growth mindset and celebrates success. Martha Cullimore School has a reputation of excellence and values learning within a supportive and collaborative culture.

Our Martha Cullimore staff, parents and volunteers strive to provide experiences that not only encourage students to become better artists, actors, singers, athletes and learners but better people, better team members, better citizens. Special thanks to every staff member and volunteer for their many contributions throughout the year and for nurturing students toward a successful future. You make such a positive difference and make it possible for our students to shine brightly! It has been a privilege to get to know every student and invest in Martha Cullimore School thus far.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am an experienced educator who has served as a classroom teacher in all three primary, junior and intermediate panels, Learning Resource Teacher and I am currently beginning my tenth year as an administrator. I am energized to continue my learning journey with the students, staff and families in the Martha Cullimore community.

I truly believe that genuine collaboration influences rich learning experiences. Supporting our children to do well at school, and in their lives, is the centre of our work. I value a strong partnership between parents and the school, and I am committed to working with you and the School Advisory Council to foster a positive educational experience for all students. There are many ways in which you can support your child’s learning and I encourage you to keep in tune with upcoming opportunities through this website.

I am excited to be working with a creative and dynamic staff that is committed to provide optimal learning opportunities for every child’s success. Our dedication to student success is what makes Martha Cullimore a special place!

Yours in service to our most valued treasure and most limitless resource, our children.
