Congratulations to Principal Gage, and welcome to Vice-Principal Jones!

Please congratulate Lesley Gage on her promotion to Principal of York Mills CI, effective immediately.  Her appointment was approved by Trustees at the TDSB board meeting last night.

For the last 2 years, Lesley has been an integral part of our leadership team.  She has contributed enormously to our school’s equity and inclusion efforts.   Her passion in promoting student leadership and student voice is much appreciated by our students and parents community.    In spite of learning of her promotion last week, Lesley continues to support our school by tediously recreating the master timetable to align all courses with the quadmester model.   Her dedication to support staff and students is exceedingly laudable.  It is with mixed feelings that we bid farewell to such a valuable member of our admin team.   Her promotion is definitely our loss and their gain at York Mills CI.   Together, we wish Principal Gage a successful and rewarding leadership role at her new school.

We would also like to welcome newly appointed Vice-Principal Jonathan Jones to our admin team.  Jonathan has extensive experience in Special Education and Alternative schools.  In addition, he is relentless in promoting equity, student engagement and student leadership.  We look forward to working collaboratively with Jonathan to continue to serve our school community.

Here’s a letter from our Superintendent and our Trustee, confirming her appointment.
