Principal's Message


Updated August 2022

Dear Davidson Road families,

My name is Rob Aviani, and I am proud to be the new principal of Davidson Elementary School. During my short time as principal, I have learned that DRE is an amazing school community. We have wonderful students, a dedicated staff, and very supportive families. I am grateful to be able to serve as principal of this school.

I am lucky to work with our tremendous vice principal, Jennifer Adamson. Together, we welcome all our new and returning students and families. It will be so exciting to see everyone's faces again and make some new friends. We are so glad that you all are joining us for a great year of connection and learning.

This year, students and families will notice some new faces among our staff. Our team is tremendous. We thank all staff for their tremendous efforts in providing a connected, caring, and safe learning environment for all students.

Our district theme for the 2022-23 school year is β€œCaring Communities." I have heard from students, staff, and families that everyone is eagerly anticipating continued opportunities to come together as a community. Please know that parents and families always are welcome at Davidson Road Elementary School. We look forward to more assemblies as well as sporting and community events in 2022-23. We also are excited to be featuring our students in music performances. In addition, we look forward to continuing our commitment to recognize and celebrate the cultures and contributions of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada.

We welcome back our wonderful Parent Advisory Council (PAC) to the new school year. The PAC's work is instrumental in making a wide variety of learning opportunities available to our students. We thank PAC president Jensine Mehlsen and the rest of our PAC executive for their help in funding field trips, cultural activities, and the construction of our upcoming Outdoor Learning Space. We encourage all parents to learn more about the PAC by visiting the PAC section of our school's website.

Our school updates families through our weekly email newsletter. We encourage families to stay informed. If you would ever like to connect with me, please do not hesitate to reach out by email or phone.

All the best,


Rob Aviani
