Message from the Principal

Welcome to the website for Page Primary School!  I am honored to serve as the leader for our wonderful school.  The mission of Page Primary is to educate the whole child in a safe and nurturing environment.  Our school serves as the foundation for many of the children in Belmont as they grow and develop into life-long learners.  We create learning experiences that educate children academically, socially and emotionally.  Teachers educate our students at the highest levels in reading, writing, phonics, mathematics, social studies and science. STEAM practices are integrated into many activities.  The community is supportive of Page through volunteering in a variety of capacities.  I whole heartedly believe that early childhood education is at the heart of the educational system.  I encourage everyone in our school community to be a part of the work of Page.  Be a part of the team that is laying the foundation for tomorrow.
