 Signing Off - Thanks DSS!

July 2014

We have reached the end … and a beginning. My assignment as principal at DSS ends this week, as I begin a new assignment as principal at South Delta Secondary. The past five and half years have been the most rewarding in my professional life. I consider myself very fortunate to have had the chance to work at such an excellent school in a really wonderful community. I have had the opportunity to work alongside some amazing professionals (teachers and support staff) in a diverse and caring school. It has been my honour and I thank you for your support, questions, and feedback. I’ve learned much from each of you.

It’s no secret that I’ll miss the students at DSS the most. There is an honesty and an authenticity about the young people in our community which we can all appreciate. You made it fun to come to school. Keep your commitment to doing your best and making a difference in the lives of others. Please continue to say hello and smile when our paths cross in Ladner … and if you offer up a high five, I’d be thrilled!

We also say farewell and thanks to retiring teachers, Teri York, Wayne McKinnon, Sheila Guichon, Heather Pierce and to Youth Support Worker, Charles Foster, all dedicated and talented staff that have made a positive impact on many lives. Best wishes in your next challenge, you will be dearly missed.

Finally, I wish to welcome incoming Principal, Ms. Jeanette Beaulieu, who is returning to DSS after being principal at Sands Secondary since 2007. I wish Ms. Beaulieu every success in her new post.

Have a great summer,

Terry Ainge
