Garibaldi Newsletter June 2017

Volume 10 June 6, 2017 Issue 3
Message from the Vice-Principal 

Dear Parents and Guardians of the Garibaldi Community,

My name is Bridget Browning. I am a retired Vancouver School Board principal and am delighted to be returning to Garibaldi until the end of the school year to replace Mike Bolianaz during his leave. I was actually Vice Principal at Garibaldi from 2008 to 2010. It’s great to be back at this wonderful school. I can see from the few days I have been here that the parent commitment is still strong and so is the spirit throughout the school. I’ve really enjoyed meeting your children. They have been very welcoming.

Though I have met many of the parents and guardians already I look forward to connecting with those of you I have yet to meet.

Thank you,
Bridgette Browning
