Update on Principal Search &
Announcement of Interim Principal
Our next Principal will be a Visionary Leader, Passionate Educator and Effective Communicator
Over the past few months, the board, staff and principal search committee have been engaged in the search for our new principal. As the principal organizes and leads the daily activities of the school, we know that they are a big factor in setting the tone for our community including students, parents and staff. To guide our principal search, we have developed a principal profile that focuses on three key areas of strength that we will be looking for in our principal;
- Visionary Leader
- Passionate Educator
- Effective Communicator
An interim principal will provide guidance and leadership as we continue our principal search
As we want to ensure we find the right leader for our school, we will be taking the next year to search for our new principal. For the 2018/2019 school year, a part-time interim principal is coming on board to lead an administrative team that will provide oversight of the day to day operation of the school.
Donna Veenstra will join us as our part-time Interim Principal for the 2018/2019 School Year
