Kelly Creek Community School

May 9th - May 13th, 2022

Principal's Message

On Friday, SD #47 Superintendent Dr. Yule announced some principal and vice-principal changes for the 2022-2023 school year. The full list was sent out in an email on Monday. As part of those changes, I will be moving out to Edgehill Elementary in September. I have really enjoyed my three years at Kelly Creek! As you all know, it is a wonderful school with so many great people. Ms. Jen Kennedy will join our Kelly Creek staff in the role of principal next year. I have spoken with Ms. Kennedy, and she is very excited about this opportunity. Ms. Kennedy and I will get a chance to meet over the next two months and early in the summer to help with the transition.

I would like to thank all our families for making me feel so welcome over the past three years. Simply put, your children are amazing! I will miss them dearly. They are in very good hands here with such a wonderful and caring staff. I will be keeping tabs on their progress from afar.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.

Sincerely,


Jamie Burt - Principal

Tla'amin Word of the Week

For indigenous people it is protocol for us to self-locate. Traditionally, self-locating tells others who we are, where we are from, and who our families are. This practice is important for self-identity and understanding community connection. For our youth today it is equally important to reflect and understand who they are and what has shaped them into who they are today. These roots influence how we carry ourselves every day. It can be grounding and centering, as well as something we can go to when we are needing direction.
