Principal Move at St. James Elementary

Dear Parents, If you have a child attending St. James Elementary and you have any questions regarding the recent Principal move at St. James, please email me at or call me at 519-567-8719. Personnel decisions regarding principals are conducted and implemented by administration at the Board. This week, the Board of Trustees were notified of several principals being moved across the Board, including one at St. James. I have been speaking with many parents over the past 24 hours and I will certainly bring your questions and concerns to the Board Administration in the next week or so. Let's continue to make education better...together. Fabio

West-End Resident Interested in Learning About His Neighbourhood's History

Friends, Please read the email I received below from a west-end resident interested in learning more about his community. I strongly encourage you to get involved and discover the unique and rich history of our neighbourhood. "Hello Fabio, I am embarking on a new venture. I want to learn as much as possible about the neighbourhood I live in. Specifically the 900 block of Bridge Ave. I want to know who lived where and when. I was hoping some of your readers can help me out. Ive been  on the block for 30 years and it is constantly changing. I just recently learned my house is 100 years this year, this prompted me to wonder about the past. I am going to the land survet office to look up prior owners of my house. Hope someone can help me out. They can reach me at  Thanks, Joe"
