Changes coming to Prince Rupert school leadership

There will be some changes in leadership at three Prince Rupert schools in the fall.

There will be some changes in leadership at three Prince Rupert schools in the fall.

The changes begin at École Roosevelt Park Community School, as current principal Sheila Wells has announced she will retire at the end of August. Wells has been part of the Prince Rupert School District for 37 years, being a teacher for many years before becoming principal of Prince Rupert Secondary School. Wells became principal of Roosevelt last year

“The district will miss Sheila Wells and her contributions,” said superintendent Sandra Jones.

Andrée Michaud will be taking over the role of principal at the school, in addition to her duties as district principal of the French Immersion Program. Michaud will be leaving her role of vice-principal at Prince Rupert Middle School.

SD52 is welcoming back Stephanie Coates, who will become vice-principal of Roosevelt, a school she is very familiar with having worked within the French Immersion Program.

Pamela Groves, currently vice-principal of PRMS, decided to pursue her passion as a full-time counsellor at the school, so Sheryl Sadorski will become vice-principal effective Aug. 1. Michelle Cross-Pomponio is becoming the associate principal to fill in as principal when necessary as Ken Minette fills his dual role of director of instruction and PRMS principal.
