Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, and Staff,

I am honored and delighted to serve as the Principal of this wonderful learning community. At Wheeler Avenue, we strive to provide an engaging and nurturing environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Our dedicated team of educators is committed to creating an inclusive and safe school culture where each child feels valued, supported, and encouraged to reach their full potential.

At Wheeler Avenue, we understand the importance of building strong partnerships between the school, families, and the community. We value and encourage open communication and collaboration, recognizing that together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of our students.

In addition to a strong academic foundation, we are also dedicated to promoting character development and fostering a love for lifelong learning. Through various programs and activities, we encourage our students to be responsible citizens, show respect for others, and demonstrate empathy and kindness.

We are proud of our diverse and vibrant school community and celebrate the rich cultural backgrounds and experiences that each student brings. We believe that embracing diversity strengthens our school family and prepares our students for success in an ever-changing global society.

I look forward to working with you all as we embark on an exciting and rewarding academic year. Let us partner together to create an exceptional educational experience for our students!

Welcome to Wheeler Avenue School!

Yours in Service,

Dr. Ruth Peets-Butcher,
Principal
