Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at S. Bruce Smith School! Well, as is so often the case, that  summer seemed to simultaneously last forever and be over in the blink of an eye.  I still feel pretty much in summer-mode as I write this, and while I may not be looking forward to those looming early mornings, I am really looking forward to getting back to school and connecting with all of our staff and students.

Last year was my first year at SBS and, as you can imagine, it was a bit challenging to be the guy who is supposed to have the answers while continually asking questions. I found it to be , ultimately, an inspiring process of learning, that allowed me to embrace the storied past of this fine school, while also working with staff and students to continually reimagine what our school can be. I’m hoping that you will all join me in continuing in this process of building our school ethos together. As we announced at the end of the year, we are honored to be one of the four Edmonton-area schools selected to take part in Hockey Helps Kids and we are counting on this to be one of the many  events and activities that help unify us as a school and a larger SBS community.

If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to contact our office 780-444-4946.
