Dear Wilshire Families,
Last night the York Region District School Board confirmed that, effective January 4, 2021, the new Principal of Wilshire Elementary will be Ms. Janine Franklin. Ms. Franklin is currently the Vice Principal of Kettle Lakes Public School and has a wide range of experience that she will be bringing to her new role. I will be moving on to the position of Principal at Glenn Gould Public School.
Although this change is quick, Ms. Franklin and I will be working together to ensure her transition to Wilshire goes smoothly. I know our staff will support in this transition and that the Wilshire community will make her feel welcome.
I am sad to be leaving Wilshire as I have truly grown to care about your children, their well-being and their academic success. I appreciate the cooperative relationship I have had with our parent community to ensure that we are providing the best possible learning environment for your children. Thank you for your support over the last two and a half years. I know I am leaving the school in great hands with our fantastic teachers and support staff.
Mr. Cory Barlow
