Principal's Message


We are now just past the half way mark of the 2017-2018 school year! Our Book Fair was a huge success and we would like to thank all our students and families for supporting our school and continuing to focus on literacy as a priority in student learning. We are excited to host our first annual Fine Arts and Literacy Evening on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. More details about this exciting evening will be shared in the weeks ahead.

As we look ahead, our school community will open up our classrooms for students to lead their parents through their learning at our Student Led Conference Night on Wednesday, February 28 between 5-7 pm. A reminder to parents, the purpose of this evening is to focus on your child and allow them some time to shine and share their learning.  If you would like to meet with your child's teacher, please make alternate arrangements!  We thank you for keeping the focus where it needs to be.... on our students!

Finally, a word about pre-enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year.  ALL current Svend Hansen students will need to participate in the pre-enrollment process.  This opens to parents via your School Zone account on Monday, March 12.  Please login to your parent account and let us know if your child will be returning to Svend Hansen School next year.  For students not currently attending Svend Hansen School, if you wish to register at our school for the 2018-2019 school year, we will require a minimum of 3 pieces of identification to confirm your address.  Svend Hansen School will have closed boundaries for next year, you must reside within our Primary Attendance Area to gain admission to our school.  If you are unsure, please feel free to contact our school office at any time.

The year is flying by, and we continue to be very proud of all our students and staff for their hard work and dedication.
