    Principal's Message

    Welcome Parents and Students to another school year. My Name is Mr. Lakusta and I am the principal of this incredible learning community, Michael A. Kostek.  Our current enrolment is 590 students and in the initial weeks of school,  the energy and excitement levels have been amazing.  

    As a staff we have spent the days leading up to our opening, planning for the arrival of all of our students. As with every year, we welcome new students and families to our school and strive to make them feel welcome and expose them to everything that makes MAK great. As this is my first year with all of you, I already feel an overwhelming connection and have found myself pausing and smiling at the strong community roots that are here. 

    For our families and students that already have a deep history with us, it was so moving for me as the school principal, to hear the depth of understanding that our entire staff have for the children and how well thought out classroom placements and establishment of learning plans has been to set all students up for success. 

    Lastly, I would like to share a purpose statement that the entire staff wrote, as I feel it gives a small sense of the commitment and dedication of this team.  

    "We are on an inclusive , collaborative journey. Together we will empower each other to be risk-takers and critical thinkers.  We will build resiliency and empathy in a safe and calm community. "

    Let's have a fantastic year together!

    Anton Lakusta
