Principal's Update

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

The month of June is one of celebrations, reflection, and looking to the future. This week on Wednesday we will celebrate our award winners for their outstanding performance at Fraser Middle School. It has been an exciting and unprecedented year! I want to say thank you to our families, teachers, support staff, students and our custodians, in making our term three an eventful conclusion to the year. We have all been on this journey together and worked hard to guide our students through a challenging time. I extend tremendous gratitude to the entire Fraser team for making Fraser a terrific place to come and learn. Thank you

At this time, I am always reminded of the importance of the caring adults in the life of a child. In this regard, our PAC has been wonderfully supportive of our children and of our teachers.  On behalf of the entire staff, I wish to acknowledge and extend my sincere thanks to for their dedication and hard work on the Fraser PAC Executive Council.

Finally, I’d like to thank all parents and caregivers for their patience and for the support of their children and our teachers this year.  They have shown us much understanding, compassion, and empathy during these times of rapid and unexpected change.  For that, I, and my staff are most grateful.

Wishing everyone a safe and well-deserved summer break,
