Welcome to ecole st. vincent-euphrasia elementary school

Message From the Principal:

Dear SVE Families,

      It is hard to start a final farewell!  First, I want to thank everyone of you for the opportunity to get to know you and your families. It has been wonderful to reconnect with the Meaford Community and I truly enjoyed the experience! As many of you know in the fall I will be heading off to Holland-Chatsworth as Principal. The New Georgian Bay Community School Administration Team will be Kevin Wilson - Principal, Danielle Carson – Vice Principal and Julie Phillips – Vice Principal, you will be in very good hands as your children transition to the Brand New K- 12 school.  The school phone number will be 519-538-1680 and the Office Manager will be Sherri Page.

  The school will run similar to SVE where the start time is 8:55 and end of day is 3:15, there are still two nutrition breaks which include eating time and outdoor play. We will continue to be a Nut Free school so please be sure to check lunch products carefully. All buses will drop off in the bus loop at the front of the school and parent drop off can be accommodated in the parking lot or the drop off zone. We encourage parents to call the office or send a note to let staff know your pick-up arrangements for the first week or two of school, we are anticipating a busy start up! A public Open House will be held later in the Fall if Ministry of Health Guidelines permit public events of that nature.

  I would encourage you to sign up for School Messenger if you haven’t already as it is the main form of communication by Bluewater District School Board and any important changes or messages will be distributed through School Messenger.

In closing thank you for all your support, kind words and dedication to your child’s education! I treasure my time at SVE, I will still be around the area and hope we get the chance to smile and say hello again!

Dear SVE Community, 

  As May & June are traditionally busy times of the school year we have preplanned an early closing celebration to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy and participate in the ceremony. Although we were really hoping to have an in person ceremony we are very pleased to offer a LIVE virtual event!

Please click on the link below to see your invitation to the Official Closing Ceremony of St Vincent Euphrasia Elementary School.

We will be sad to leave the SVE building (at the end of the school year) however we are incredibly excited to move into the new Georgian Bay Community School Building that is almost complete on the SVE site. We are confident that all of the fantastic learning, exciting school events and daily happy memory making opportunities will continue in the new building once we start the 2021-2022 school year in September!

Please join us May 14 at 7 pm to experience our live celebration of 51 years of SVE!

take good care,

Tracy Dinsmore, Principal and SVE Staff
