Welcome to the 2016/17 school year at South Huron District High School! We hope your summer has been fulfilling and that you are excited to come back to school. Each new school year offers the opportunity for a fresh start and we encourage you to see this as an opportunity to try something new and to challenge yourself.
This year you will notice some changes in staff, most notably in the office Mrs. Bayer-Smith is replacing Mr. Smith, Mr. Allen has been added to the administrative team, and we are lucky enough to have Mr. Simmons here to help us navigate this great school. We also welcome Mr. Oliver and Mrs. Fritzley who are teaching grade 7/8 and have much to offer our school. Finally, we have a new face in our EA staff, Ms. Love, who brings with her some Panther Pride as a former graduate from this building.
South Huron District High School is an exciting place to be and we can’t wait to see what this year will bring. Throughout the year Mr. Allen, Mr. Simmons, and Mrs. Bayer-Smith will be working hard to showcase all of you and your successes. We encourage you to have a voice in our school, to be involved, and to play an active role in your education. Come and visit us, share your thoughts, your experiences, and your learning with us so we can learn from you. Remember, this is your school and this is your future.
It is our hope that at the end of this year you will feel prepared to move forward in your chosen pathway. We hope to provide you with the skills you need to achieve excellence. Our staff will work hard to support you in reaching your full potential and to help you feel like you belong to a welcoming school community. We encourage you to ask questions, to be curious, and to seek out help whenever you need it. There are lots of people in this great school who are ready to help you reach your goals, so don’t forget to ask.
Wishing you the very best for the 2016/17 school year.
Mr. Allen, Mrs. Bayer-Smith, and Mr. Simmons
