Principal's Message

Principal's Message

A new year has begun at ECKS and there are many changes students, parents and community members will notice.

ECKS has a new principal. Over the last 24 years, I have taught at Forestburg, Heisler, Killam, Daysland and Central High Sedgewick Public school. Over the last 11 years, I have been the Assistant Principal and Principal at Central High. During this time I have taught Grades 3 to 12. My focus for most of my teaching career has been Social Studies and French. I am very excited to take on this new role and be a part of your school and community.  

Additionally, ECKS welcomes Mr. Colton Warwa, who will be teaching Grade 7 Mathematics and some Gr. 8 Health. Mr. Warwa is sharing his teaching position between our school and École Camrose Composite High School. Ms. Kristie Bruce has also joined our ECKS team and will be teaching Grade 7 Social Studies, Grade 8 English Language Arts and some option classes. Ms. Bruce is also a teacher at Battle River Online. Mr. Justin McCarroll joins École Charlie Killam School from Cornerstone Christian Academy. Mr. McCarroll is one of our Grade 6 homeroom teachers who brings many years of experience and leadership to our  school and he will also teach some Gr. 8 Phys. Ed.

Mrs. Lisa Repchuk and Mrs. Erin Allen have previously been  Educational Assistants in our school. This year, we welcome them back as they work with many of our students.

Our school is growing! Currently, we are projecting at least 500 students at ECKS. Our final, official number will be known at the end of September. We will endeavor to keep you aware of class sizes throughout  the month.

On behalf of all staff, we look forward to  working with all students, parents and our community as we continue to build an amazing school where we all learn and grow together. Si vous avez des questions, je suis toujours disponible, je suis ici pour vous et vos enfants. Ensemble, nous réussirons.

I look forward to meeting you as the year progresses.

Yours respectfully,

Stephen Hoyland
