Governing Board

 

What do we do?

We are a decision-making body within the school that assists in defining policy and procedures to meet the educational needs of all students and acts in the best interest of the students.

The Governing Board:

  • analyzes the school’s situation in terms of the school board’s strategic plan
  • adopts the educational project and oversees its implementation and periodic evaluation
  • approves the school’s success plan, rules of conduct and the safety measures
  • responds to LBPSB consultations (ex: Enrolment Criteria, Budget, Major School Change)
  • review and approve proposed field trips by staff as well as fundraisers by Home & School
  • review and allocates funds as proposed by staff and Home & School.

 

Governing Board meetings are public and we invite you to attend. If you have an issue, concern or question, please email us at clearpoint_gb@lbpearson.ca.

Gabrielle Forestell (Staff) 

My name is Gabrielle Forestell and I am a grade 4 French teacher here at Clearpoint. It is my first year as a teacher. I had the opportunity to complete an internship at Clearpoint in January 2020 and fell in love with the school and the community. I am so excited to be back and teaching at Clearpoint this year. I look forward to a great year on Governing Board.

 


 

Stuart Kemp (Parent)

I’m serving my second term on Clearpoint’s Governing Board and happy to contribute to the school’s growth and its positive role in the lives of our children in any way that I can. My daughter is in Grade 4 and my son will be graduating from Grade 6 this year. Clearpoint is a special school with great community engagement and a tremendous teaching and administrative staff. I’ve always appreciated Clearpoint but never more than this crazy year when it has become more important than ever!



 

Rebecca-Ann Belmonte (Parent)

Ciao! Hello! Bonjour! As a TESL teacher and second-generation Italian, I love languages and that is one of the reasons I chose Clearpoint Elementary for my son. I love how the French and English languages live in harmony and that comes from the cooperation of everyone present. This is my second year participating in Governing Board and I feel blessed to be working with such an amazing group of people. Although my son, who should be in Grade 2, is home with a medical note, I still want to contribute in making the life of the students at school the best one possible. Everyone working at Clearpoint is so supportive that this is my way to give back to to the school. This year we are all superheroes behind our masks…Power of positivity to all!



 

Tass Fyon (Daycare)

I started working at Clearpoint in 2011. I feel so lucky to work with great people and witness all these wonderful children grow so quickly.

This is my eighth year on the Governing Board, and I look forward to being part of making this year a great year for the children.  



 

Dahlia Singh (Staff)

Hello! I am entering my 18th year as a teacher. Feels like I started just the other day! This year I am teaching grade 2 as an English Generalist. I have a passion for math and English. Grade 2 is one of my favourite grades to teach. Some of my personal interests include cooking (and eating!) travel, reading and spending quality time with family. As an educator, I strive to make every student reach their full potential. My aim is to create a safe learning environment where students feel free to express themselves and take risks...all this, with a little fun and humour thrown into the mix!



 

Daniel Trotto (Parent & Secretary)

I am a believer that educating our youth is the key in allowing them to bring positive change in the world we all live in. As a proud parent of two children at Clearpoint Elementary, I have been involved with the Governing Board since 2016 as member of the public. Now I am honored to have been elected as the Clearpoint Governing Board secretary, and I look forward in being able to continue my contributions in this role. Please feel free to contact me with your questions and comments, and I encourage you to participate in our meetings.



 

Suzanne Larkin (Staff) 

I have been a teacher at Clearpoint Elementary IB world school since 1994. It is my home away from home and I am so very happy to be part of this amazing team. I have been a Governing Board member for about 18 of the 26 years and enjoy the discussions and interactions with parents and teachers.

Fun facts about me: I don’t like winter, I love to cut the grass (yes I do cut my own grass) and enjoy gardening.



 

Kimberley Villarroel (Staff)

My name is Kimberley Villarroel and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Clearpoint elementary. I been teaching for 10 years and I am happy to be joining governing board this year. I enjoy making the children learn, laugh and play. I am known for singing songs, reading funny stories (Robert Munsch books are my favorite ) and making a sparkly mess in the classroom. My classroom is filled with love, kindness, friendship and laughter. The little children that I teach always hold a place in my heart.



 

Katherine Wiebe (Parent & Chair)

Hello! My name is Katherine and this will be my fifth year on the Governing Board. Time flies when you’re having fun! I have two kids, one who is a proud graduate from Clearpoint, and the other in Grade 5. I enjoy being a part of the GB because it gives me an opportunity to hear about all the amazing things happening in our school and truly appreciate the hard work and dedication from our teachers, staff, administration, parents and students. We are a unique community! I invite you all to come and participate in our meetings or hit up your GB reps if you have any questions or concerns that you would like to be discussed.



 

Karina Leonard (Parent & Alternate Parent Rep)

Although this is my first time on Governing Board, my family has been a part of the Clearpoint community since 2017 and I have volunteered at the school in other capacities since then. I have just started my 19th year in education, as both a teacher and pedagogical counsellor, and strongly believe that education is the vehicle for a more just and sustainable world. I am excited to join Governing Board and hope to represent parents' wishes for the school. You can always approach me at morning drop-offs and after-school pickups for informal chats. Please feel free to introduce yourself.


 

Sandra Fisher (Staff)

Hi everyone! My name is Sandra Fisher and I teach grade 3 English Language Arts and Math. I got my start at Clearpoint teaching a unique class called Explorations. I am in my 23rd year of teaching. I have taught K through 4; worked as resource teacher and I have taught in French as well. I love the IB program and philosophy as there are so many opportunities to think outside the box within our units! I’ve also had the good fortune to work for the Ministry of Education on their quebecreadingconnection.ca site and for The National Film Board of Canada, creating academic activities for a few children’s films. I love Clearpoint and am so happy to be a part of this amazing community! I look forward to the day we can all meet and chat in person!
