Principal's Message

Welcome to Calder Elementary School. It is my absolute pleasure to be the principal of such a wonderful school. Calder School is steeped in rich history, and we as a staff, strive to continue the tradition of providing an exceptionally high level of education. We endeavor to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students on a daily basis. We believe that every child has a right to quality teaching and the supports we provide will enable them to reach their fullest potential.

Calder is a vibrant building where staff, students, community members, and volunteers work together. We believe that student success is a shared responsibility and requires the support of home, school, and the community. We welcome and encourage our parents to play an active role in their child’s education and the school. Our goal is to nurture positive relationships with our students and their families.

Calder School is a wonderful learning environment where everyone is valued. Diversity is key to our success and we celebrate the uniqueness of all our students. We will continue to develop literacy and numeracy skills in all our students by providing strong teaching.
