  Greenwood 2018 Transfer Letter signed

Monday, May 28, 2018

Dear Students, Families and the Greenwood Community,

I write to inform you of some changes to the Greenwood Administration team.

Our wonderful Vice-Principal, Ms. Davidson, will be transferring to a new school, effective September, 2018.

VP Davidson has played a critical role on the leadership team of Greenwood Secondary School over the past two years.  In her role, Ms. Davidson has consistently worked to find ways to better support our students and teachers.  She has been a powerful instructional leader and has worked to explore how to engage students and make them feel more connected to their new home in Canada.

VP Davidson also played an essential role in the transition of Greenwood from the old building at 24 Mountjoy to our new home at 800 Greenwood Avenue.  Her careful attention to detail and thoughtful planning made the move as smooth as it could possibly be for both students and staff.  She has continued throughout this year to follow up on deficiencies and to push for unforeseen needs as they were identified.

We all appreciate Ms. Davidson’s fine work at Greenwood SS and I know that you will join me in wishing her great success at her new school, Northview Heights SS.  We will all miss her, but feel very fortunate to have been able to work with her here at Greenwood.

Ms. Davidson’s leaving requires the appointment of a new Vice Principal.  I am happy to inform you that VP Bylykbashi, who is now one of the VPs at Danforth CTI, will become the new VP at Greenwood.  Mr. Bylykbashi is a strong advocate for students and teachers and has already begun to reach out to his new colleagues and students at our school.  Please join me in welcoming Mr. Bylykbashi to his new position at Greenwood.
