Leadership Recognition

“Leadership in the OCDSB is the demonstration of personal initiative to achieve a positive outcome.”

Students

We are proud of our students who demonstrate citizenship by helping in many ways including being Lunch monitors, attendance monitors, Milk monitors, and part of the recycling committee. Students have shown leadership in extracurricular activities including sports, choir, and drama. In addition to informal recognition, we also acknowledge their contributions in our classrooms, school announcements, newsletters, and year-end awards ceremonies. Students who demonstrate positive character traits are recognized through the ‘gotcha’ program. Spirit assemblies are held regularly and individual's contributions to the school community are celebrated.

Staff

Our teachers have a wealth of professional qualifications including Bachelors, Masters Degrees and college diplomas. Staff have expertise in curriculum and administrative areas including Arts, Curriculum and Instruction, Phys. Education and Sciences as well as qualifications in Special Education, English as a Second Language, Music, Reading, Phys. Education, and Computers. They participate in Board-wide professional development in literacy and numeracy. We have 8 Early Childhood Educators who joined the staff to help support the full day kindergarten program and Extended Day program. Our support staff bring a peruse background of expertise that ensures our school is a safe and caring place for students to learn. Our office team welcomes new students and their families to Bayshore P.S., shares important information and maintains home and school communication in a friendly, supportive manner throughout the school year. Our custodial team ensures a safe, clean learning environment. Our Library and Educational assistants support student learning. Bayshore P.S. staff work effectively both as individuals and as a whole school team.

Parents/Guardians/Volunteers

We have many parents who have taken on important roles as lunch program coordinator, and lunch time supervision monitors. We also have parents who work as early learning assistants in the Extended Day Program. Our volunteers contribute countless hours of support for the benefit of students in our school by helping us with our hot lunch program, field trips and as classroom teacher helpers. OCDSB high schools students are welcomed to Bayshore P.S. as Co-op students who work in our classrooms and in the office. As invaluable partners, we thank our parents, guardians and volunteers and look for opportunities to acknowledge them such as in school announcements, newsletters, and our annual volunteer appreciation social.
