Principal's Message

Greetings,

Welcome to Metcalfe Public School - Home of the Mustangs!

When I was informed of my placement at Metcalfe I was extremely excited and this excitement remains today.  Staff, students and parents working together towards common goals – academic excellence, social and emotional development, and positive attitudes. Our students are encouraged to become life-long learners and responsible citizens. 

My family and I have always loved coming to Metcalfe. Curling, hockey bring us in this direction. My daughter, aged 13 and my son aged 10 keep me active and busy. My partner Jessica keeps us organized and sain.They too are excited to have me here in this community and it is a privilege to be apart of your community!

At Metcalfe we strive to create an innovative and positive learning environment by being responsive to individual student needs and interests.  Our vibrant school is a special place to learn and grow.  With a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, teachers pursue professional development opportunities to deliver the best programs possible for our students. We value our exemplary School Council and involved parent community. We also welcome volunteers! Students are encouraged and engaged in their learning and are excited to participate in the variety of extra-curricular experiences that are offered at Metcalfe. I applaud the leadership of our staff to volunteer their time and provide these golden opportunities. This unwavering commitment is awesome to watch each and every day!

As a principal I see that we all have an opportunity to contribute to the well-being of our children. They have a voice and we have are here to listen. I believe that when children feel safe and have a sense of belonging at school they will achieve more. We are guiding the humans of tomorrow. We need them to be good people. 

We will continue to Strive for Excellence and work collaboratively with our families for all of our students’ learning needs. As we move forward this school year, we will work together to continue to provide our students with rich and creative learning opportunities that align with the OCDSB exit outcomes and character traits.  Your support is greatly appreciated.  Thank you for entrusting your children to us.   

Sincerely,  

Todd Thompson
