Thank you and congratulations to all of our 2020 retirees

Retirement from the district normally comes with a big celebration in November, but as 2020 has been anything but normal, Surrey Schools is recognizing our 2020 retirees remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year there are 166 district employees who retired during the 2019-20 school year, ranging from principals, teachers and secretaries, to education assistants, custodians and facilities staff – and every role in between. Under the provincial health officer’s guidelines and in the interest of health and safety, the district is honouring these retirees at a distance in place of the typical retirement dinner.

“Although we are unable to celebrate in-person and personally thank each retiree for their years of service with the Surrey School District, we hope they know how much the Board of Education appreciates their dedication and commitment to student learning. We are grateful for your contributions in helping the district provide quality education for our community," said Surrey Board of Education Chair Laurie Larsen.

“To each of our retirees, thank you for your hard work in and out of the classroom, preparing our students for the future,” said Superintendent Dr. Jordan Tinney. “Your tireless efforts have set generations of students on paths to do great things, thanks to your guidance and commitment to learning.”

In lieu of the dinner, all 2020 retirees will be sent a gift in the mail. Retirees were also invited to share their favourite memories or stories about their time with the district. Submissions are below.

While we still wish we could thank you all in person, the district would like to take this opportunity to recognize your important contributions to our district. 

Congratulations on your retirement and thank you once again for everything you’ve done for Surrey Schools!
