Parkview 2017/2018

 As the school year draws to a close we wish to inform you about some administrative personnel changes that will be in place for next year at Parkview.

Starting in September we will be very fortunate to have Ms. Dalia Osman coming to be our new half time vice principal. Ms. Osman is currently the Vice Principal at Wm. Berczy PS. We are very excited to have her joining the Parkview team.

However, this means that we will be saying goodbye to our Vice Principal Mr. Walters. He has been at Parkview for this year and has been an important member of our administrative team. I know that you join me in thanking Mr. Walters for his hard work and congratulating him on his new position as Regional Itinerant Vice Principal.

On June 30th we will be saying good bye to our Head Secretary Ms. Cheung.  Ms. Cheung will be retiring after many years of dedicated service to both the Parkview community and the YRDSB. The students, families and staff will all miss her greatly however, we wish her well in this new exciting stage of her life.

In her place, will be our new head secretary, Ms. Mcallister who comes to us from Langstaff Secondary School. We are very happy to welcome her to Parkview.

Starting in September you will have a new principal. Ms. Shelley Anand is an experienced educator who has worked at a number of York Region schools and is who is currently cross appointed to both Buttonville and Coledale Public Schools. We wish her congratulations on her appointment to Parkview!

After 20 years with the YRDSB and 17 years at Parkview PS and 3 at Walter Scott PS, our beloved Ms. Jewett will be retiring as of June 30th.  She has been responsible for shaping the minds and ideas of generations of students who have come through Parkview. We will miss her and we wish her well on this new stage of her life with her family and grandchildren.

I (Lisa) want to take this opportunity to thank the Parkview community for an amazing four years as I will be moving on to a position with the Ontario Ministry of Education as a Student Achievement Officer.  I will be forever grateful to the students, staff, and parents with whom I have worked at Parkview for an exceptional learning experience.  I will miss you all!

I know that you will welcome our new staff with the same warm acceptance and kindness that Parkview is known for throughout York Region!
