Passing of Mr. Kois
It is with profound sadness that I write to you with news regarding the passing of our former EYP/ Elementary Principal and teacher, Mr Costas Kois.
Mr. Kois was a highly respected member of our Pinewood family for 32 years, where he was beloved by students, colleagues and parents alike. He retired from Pinewood in June, 2018. His heart was so big and his warm and welcoming personality was larger than life. He truly loved every student he taught and his students created an incredibly personal bond with him.
Students of all grades have been informed and support is being offered as needed. A memorial service took place this morning for Secondary students and support is being given to all students and staff. Because Mr. Kois touched the lives of almost every student, teacher and staff member in our school, his passing is an incredibly devastating loss for us.
If you wish to pick up your child early today, please inform the school and come as you wish.
Mr. Kois will be terribly missed by the Pinewood family.
