Principal's Message


Ms. Shirley Kapitsky



June 2020

Dear Edgewater community,

We did it ! I know the past 4 months have been challenging to say the least. Whether it has been working from home, trying to support your children while they were doing school work or going to work and looking for help to watch your children. I think we have learned that we are capable of handling more than we could have ever imagined. I know I have learned patience, flexibility, and working with what you know and not trying to predict or fall into the what if mindset.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support throughout the last few months. Everything that you have done for your children and their learning has taken patience and dedication. Saying thank you does not fully express my gratitude but I want you to know that you are truly appreciated.

We still have some uncertainties and challenges ahead and we will be following the directives from Quebec Health and Safety as we continue to plan for the start of the next school year.

You will be able to find your school supply list and calendar on the Edgewater website as of June 30th. You will again have the option to order your school supplies through Hamster also available on the website as of June 30th. Report cards will be available on Fusion July 3 at 1:00 pm. You will also receive information in mid-August about the first day of school and all the safety measures that we have put in place.

I hope you enjoy your summer in our new normal. I am very much looking forward to seeing your children in August. The school has been very quiet over the past few months without the hustle and bustle and sweet sounds of their voices.

Stay safe,
Mrs. Kapitsky
