Principal's Message

September 2021
 
Hello Students and Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. This year we have approximately 494 students attending in-person learning and we are very excited to welcome them back to school after 3 months of remote learning last spring and the 2 month summer holiday. We are ready to welcome students back after being away from school for 5 months. Our focus is on a safe and sustainable return to in-person learning. We are taking things slowly and focused on the wellbeing and mental health of both students and staff. 
 
About me:
This will be my 18th year as Principal /Vice-Principal. I have been a Principal for 10.5 years and was a Vice-Principal 6.5 years. During the past 17 years I have been a school administrator at Katimavik ES (Gr 4-8), Bayshore P.S. (K-5), Fisher Park/Summit Alternative (Gr. 7/8), Bridlewood C.E.S. (K-8 – at the time), and now at South March P.S. (K-6)

My wife is also a teacher with the OCDSB, and we have two boys who are 7 and 9 year old who both attend one of our great OCDSB schools. 
 
Feel free to contact me if you have questions/concerns. You can visit the school, call me, or email me – jeff.gervais@ocdsb.ca
 
Take care,
Jeff Gervais
