PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Welcome to Dr. Donald Massey School.

At Dr. Donald Massey School we believe that every student has the right to an excellent education and the responsibility to develop their talents and abilities while learning to live peacefully, protect the environment, and respect others.  Our school supports almost 1000 students from Grades K-9.  Our learning environment is positive and caring and thus supports individual differences, allowing all students to take risks in pursuit of excellence.  We strive to build strong relationships between our staff, students, families, and community.

This school year will be like no other.  Classrooms, hallways and non-instructional times will look different.  Learning in cohorts will include restrictions never before experienced by staff and students while an “unwell” student will warrant a heightened response.  However, as we strive to continue providing the top quality education program our students deserve in these uncertain times, we must remember that:  

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

Albert Einstein

Therefore we, the dedicated, highly functioning and collaborative team at Dr. Donald Massey, will continue to use our collective wisdom to challenge students to be the best that they can be.   We will strive to create a safe and welcoming learning environment through this year’s theme  “Empower the Spirit” that is based on the Seven Sacred Teachings on human conduct towards others:  Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Humility and Truth.  We will endeavor to help students see mistakes not as failures, but as essential parts of the learning process whether they are learning in-class or on-line.  We will help students be accountable for their conduct and assume their rightful responsibilities as learners while developing positive relationships with others.  

We cannot do this incredibly important work without you.  It takes a village to support a child in their journey through life, through education.  We look forward to walking that journey with you and together making sure your child’s educational experience at Dr. Donald Massey is one they will forever be proud of.  

Sincerely,

Cheryl Belyea

Principal

Dr. Donald Massey School
