Welcome to a new school year at Abbott. The beginning of a new year is full of possibilities! There are new friends, new teachers and new things to learn! I am delighted to continue my journey as part of the Abbott team as your new school principal. My name is Bobbi Whitrow and I have been an educator for 20+ years. This is my 10th year serving the Abbott community. I see my role as supporting staff and families to ensure each student is able to reach their full potential.

I am grateful to continue to be part of a school that has such a strong reputation for being a welcoming, inclusive community. I believe every student will feel happy and safe while being challenged to do their best. I believe in building upon the strengths of our students, our families and our community. I believe in meeting every child where they are at and believing they can do great things. I believe that as a staff, we will work collaboratively to ensure that Abbott is a place where this will happen!

Abbott School is a place where diversity is celebrated and each child is is celebrated for their uniqueness. Our students are part of a school community where imagination, and striving for our personal best is valued. Parents and caregivers place tremendous trust and confidence in our school, and your children will always be at the heart of every decision we make as a staff. You are the best advocate for your child and their success depends on all of us working together! I am always open to conversations about the school or your children. Please feel free to contact me by calling the school office or come find me before or after school!
