Principal's Message

Principal’s Message

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Russell Public School- where we Work Together to Achieve Success for All!  My name is Ewen McIntosh, and I am elated to be joining you in the learning journey at Russell Public School. As a newcomer, I already see the strong sense of pride held for our school, it's service to students and families through both staff and parent contributions, and it's positive reflection on the student experience. It is through this work that we support our wider district mission of Preparing all Students for a Successful Life

I believe Public Education. I've served as Principal in both K-6 and 7-12 school programs, supported district-wide professional development as a System Vice Principal, and worked desk-side with students across many schools as a Special Education and Classroom Teacher. As a parent, my children attend a UCDSB public school, and I am so thankful for the role their community school- the students, staff and families- play in their growth and learning. Public education is critical work to ensuring successful destinations for students, and to supporting a prosperous, caring and civil society: public education is a core value for me, and I am thankful to be supporting you and your children in this work.

Our deeply caring and collaborative staff bring quite literally hundreds of years of combined professional experience to the work, and are excited for the year ahead. Our shared commitment towards student-centred learning means that we will work with student voice, learning data and best practices to keep the school day engaging, challenging and rewarding for our students. 
Our parent community is closely tied to our school and partners in the work of supporting students through a variety of means; if you have never participated in School Council or any other parent/community-based committees, I strongly encourage you to do so: this is the yearSo many parent-based program exist here at Russell PS, and they are all of tremendous benefit to our students.

I am excited to be working with a dynamic student community. My message to students is this: do your best, ask lots of questions, and remember that learning is a journey, not a destination. My commitment to you is to support your learning by helping teachers and staff, helping your family work with the school, and helping you directly in your journey. 

The key learning relationship in schools rests between the student and the classroom teacher and, as such, we will all commit to fostering a productive relationship based on good communication. Through working together and through staying connected, we will provide a fantastic year for our students- your children. I wish each and every Russell PS Lynx a great year of learning!

Yours in Education,

Ewen McIntosh
