SEB Staffing Updates:

Our school closure has been difficult on many levels. One of these complications is the transitioning of staff during this time. We have a few farewells and welcomes to announce for our school community.

Mdme Piotrowski celebrated the birth of her second child. Both mom and baby are healthy and are now doing well at home. With Mdme Piotrowski on maternity leave, Mr. DeLaurier has become a part of the awesome SEB team. He is now responsible for the distance learning portion of French Immersion for both our grade ones and twos. Welcome Mr. DeLaurier!

Also leaving us this week is Ms. Orsini. She has been our amazing teacher of our grade 6/7 class since September. As Ms. Orsini’s temporary leave has now ended, Ms. Jennifer Lee will be covering this class for the remainder of the school year. We are grateful to Ms. Orsini for her incredible contributions and the sharing of her many gifts and talents. She will be greatly missed.

Ms. Lee comes to us as a permanent teacher with WCDSB. She has varied teaching experience and is excited to join our community, even in these very unique times. Welcome Ms. Lee!

Madame Kocher is also preparing for her maternity leave to begin at the end of this month. We will announce her replacement as soon as it is known. We wish Mdme Kocher all the best in this exciting and anticipatory time.

Alison Messmer is the social worker from our board who has been supporting SEB along with other schools this year. We congratulate her as she also begins her maternity leave next week. We wish her the best and hope to see her again soon. We also welcome Jodie Allen who will be covering for Mrs. Messmer for the remainder of the school year. If looking to connect with us please email Ms. Allen or Mrs. Mooney directly.

Nutrition for Learning:

Even though our schools are currently closed, this volunteered based organization continues to support our community. NFL regularly comes to Sir Edgar Bauer to distribute nutritious snacks in a safe and physically distanced manner. We are extremely grateful for this service during this time. Please visit their site to check on weekly schedules. Any community members can access their support at any school site.
