Principal's Message


Friday, October 20, 2017


Congratulations to Nicole Buchanan, our newly elected School Council chair who has now ALSO been elected as a Red Deer Public School Board Trustee! Nicole is a parent of a student at Mountview who will now be stepping down from her position as School Council Chair and Chair of Parents For Mountview to assume her new role as School Board Trustee. This means that we now have a vacancy for the position of chair of both our School Council and Parents For Mountview. Any parent interested in running for these positions is welcome to do so by attending our next meeting on Tuesday, November 7 at 6:30 p.m. We will be holding an election at the meeting in order to have someone in place in these roles. Any parents who think they might be interested but would like more information are encouraged to call me at the school or to check out the roles and responsibilities of school council executive on our website. We would love to have you working with us!


This year, with 15 new staff out of a total of 38, there are some whom you may not know. I would like to introduce you to our wonderful secretarial staff!

Kim Cadman is our Financial Secretary and organizer extraordinaire! Kim comes to us having worked at Eastview Middle School, Hunting Hills High School and in Calgary Public before that. She is a whiz with budgets, numbers and tech and is very happy to be working at the elementary level.


Brenda Halford is our Student Records and front desk secretary and is also assigned to the library for part of each day, proving that she is a multi-tasker beyond measure. Brenda comes to us from Westpark Middle School and Ecole Oriole Park before that. Brenda has experience as an EA and is amazing with children.


Both of these ladies are super kind and welcoming to students and parents and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Vice-Principal Amanda Wilson and I are grateful to have such wonderful support from these ladies in the office.


Have a lovely weekend!
