Principal's Message


École Dr. Brosseau School Principal’s Message                                                Summer 2018

This is probably the hardest principal’s message I have ever had to write. Why, you might ask? Well, it is the last one as principal of École Dr. Bernard Brosseau Middle School. When the new school year arrives, I will be taking over the role of Principal at École Notre Dame High School in Bonnyville.

I am very proud of the school that we have become. From having developed our iBrosseau Vision, being nominated and awarded the Inclusive Education Award for Alberta, to being recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for the second two-year term in a row (1 – 1 iPad technology), this school, staff and community have proven that a small rural school, with a caring heart, can make a difference in the lives of many people. This year, as we celebrated our 30th Anniversary as an educational institution, we also installed our new fully accessible barrier free playground, which is the first in our community. It is simply amazing what we can do, when we put our minds and our hearts to it.

At this time, I wanted to take a moment and say “Thank You” to the staff that will be leaving us this year.  It is always with mixed emotions at this time of the year, we have staff and students leaving us, but as well, they begin a new chapter in their lives, as do we, with new staff and students entering into our school.

Mrs. Joan Winchester, student assistant, joined us in the new year and has been a wonderful addition to our school. Mrs. Winchester, the staff and students will miss you, thank you and best of luck in your future endeavors! God Bless!

Mrs. Sarah McArthur, grade 7 humanities and Art teacher, will be leaving us and joining the staff of Assumption Jr. Sr. High School in Cold Lake. Mrs. McArthur, you have made a difference in the lives of our students, and our staff, especially in the Art world. Good luck, God Bless, and come back and visit!

Mme. Melanie Leclair, grade 5 immersion teacher, will be leaving us and joining the staff of Light of Christ in LacLaBiche. Mme. Leclair, thank you for being a big part of our students lives, good luck and God Bless!

Miss Robyn McRae, Youth Minister and grade 6 teacher, will be leaving us to head back East, home to P.E.I. Miss McRae, you have been an incredible addition and a staple on our staff, you have left an imprint on all our hearts, and will truly be missed by all of us, staff, students and parents. Good luck in your future endeavors, safe travels, and God Bless.

Wow, this is a tough one, not just because these people have been a huge part of our Brosseau Family, but because I also must say good-bye. I will truly miss this school, the students, the parents, and especially the staff. They are all a huge part of my extended family, and even though I may have said this before, I will miss them immensely.

If there is ever anything you would like more information on, please don’t hesitate to call, or drop by for a visit.  The staff always welcome your involvement in your child’s education and should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, or  my door is always open and I look forward to meeting with you any time.
