Administrative changes ahead for 2015-16 at School District 52
The first item of some note, the announcement of the retirement of long time teacher and administrator Sheila Wells, most recently the Principal of Ecole Roosevelt Park Community School.
Ms. Wells who has taught in the School District system for 37 years was previously the long time principal of Prince Rupert Secondary School and was part of the transition during the merger with Charles Hays Secondary.
She has been a fixture on the academic, athletic and administrative side of education in the city over the years, having made many contributions to education in the community through her almost four decades of service.
Her retirement is effective August 31st.
Shifting into the position of Principal at Roosevelt Park will be Ms. Andrée Michaud, who will add those duties at the school to her current position as District Principal of the French Immersion program.
Returning to the School District and taking up the duties of Vice-Principal at Roosevelt will be Ms. Stephanie Coates, she started with School District 52 in 2011 as a Learning Services teacher.
Roosevelt is not the only school that will see some change when September comes around.
Over at Prince Rupert Middle School, Ms. Pamela Groves will be shifting her passions towards the counselling department at the school, leaving her post as vice-principal. Moving into that position at PRMS will be Ms. Sheryl Sadorski who crosses over from her duties at Pineridge.
The School District also announced that Ms. Michelle Cross-Pomponio will become the Associate Principal at Prince Rupert Middle School effective August 1st, filling the principal role as required, with Mr. Ken Minette continuing with his dual roles of Director of Instruction and Principal at the School.
Conrad Elementary also made the highlights page from yesterday's information release, with the announcement that Mr. Paramjit Khaira who stepped into the temporary position of vice-principal at the school will continue on with that position in the fall, working alongside Principal Keri Levelton.
