Hello! Bonjour! Hadih! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I would like to welcome all returning and new ÉCHES students, families, and staff. I hope that you all had a relaxing, fun filled summer and that everyone is returning to school feeling re-energized and ready for the year.
It is with great pleasure to introduce myself as the new Principal at École College Heights. I am born and raised in Prince George and have been an educator with SD 57 for 24 years. I have been in a school leadership role for the past 16 years first as a Vice Principal and then as the Principal at Peden Hill, École Heather Park, and Springwood Elementary schools. I look forward to getting to know the students and families of ÉCHES and am hopeful that this will be a year of reconnection with one another.
A special welcome goes out to a number of new ÉCHES staff. Welcome to Dave Holmes (Vice Principal), Mrs. Coles Mohns (primary), Mme Knechtel (primary FI), Mme Cleaveley (primary FI), Ms. Auras (counselor/LA), and Mr. Bhullar (custodian). I am very happy to have you all join our ÉCHES team.
Our student enrollment has seen some changes this September, and as such, we have to re-organize some of our classes. Students will find out the class they are in as the week continues. Much thought and conversation goes into the placement of students. Please be advised that some of our classes are full and as a result, there is no flexibility for movement between classes once students are placed.
For your information, newsletters will be sent home at the beginning of each month and they always contain important information of what is happening in the school, so please take the time to read them. In addition, important information (including newsletters) can be found on our ÉCHES website.
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year, I look forward to the fun, growth, and learning that it will bring.
