Today is Secretaries' and Administrative Professionals’ Day, a time for us to recognize and celebrate our secretaries, administrative assistants, and receptionists.
Over my years working as a school principal, I was fortunate to work with some extremely talented school secretaries that were truly the face of our school. These individuals added tremendous value to the organization, multi-tasking everything that was needed to keep the school moving forward.
These key staff members were vitally important in our school community. These exceptional individuals kept our administrators organized, answered calls from parents, and always took the time to help out the students, demonstrating how much they deeply cared for the children we taught. They were always ready to give out band-aids when students were hurt, or containers for teeth lost at school so they could be taken home safely in anticipation of the tooth fairy visiting that night.
Today, on behalf of all students, parents, teachers, and staff, I send out a heartfelt thank you to all of the school secretaries I feel honoured to have worked with during my career. Thank you for all of the hard work you do to support your colleagues, and for making the educational experience of each student in our schools better.
I always look forward to hearing from you with any comments, questions, or concerns. Please reach out to my team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, through our website https://www.hereforsudbury.ca, or call us at 705-805-0200.
