Office update – March 9

Dear families,

What a great week! Spotlight on Steckle was an incredible talent show. The performers and stage crew were incredible. Jean Steckle students are talented and kept the audience engaged the entire time. I would like to thank the entire team for an excellent show and the parents for their support.

I would like to wish the students a safe and happy March break. We look forward to seeing all of our students on Monday, March 19.


Andrea Michelutti, Principal

Spotlight on Bill Vu – one of our Steckle Sting!

We would like to highlight our Grade 5 student Bill Vu for his hard work and dedication in playing the piano. Bill entered a contest to perform with the Canadian Sinfonietta and was selected after a long, multi-step audition process. He will be performing on March 25 at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto. He has also been asked to perform with another national orchestra in the spring. Bill feels supported by his teachers, friends and the Jean Steckle community. Congratulations to Bill on this accomplishment!

Kindergarten promotes the social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development of all children.
