Administrative Appointments for 2018-2019
June 26, 2018 - Parkland School Division’s Acting Superintendent of Schools Shauna Boyce is pleased to announce two administrative appointments for the 2018-2019 school year effective August 2018. Woodhaven Middle School will be adding Marcie Enders as an Assistant Principal. Current Assistant Principal, Leslie Kronewitt, is returning to the classroom to teach. The vacancy at Forest Green opens the door for Mike Partington’s first Assistant Principal appointment. Partington heads to Forest Green from his most recent post as Off-Campus Coordinator plus Work Experience and Registered Apprenticeship Program (R.A.P.) Facilitator at Spruce Grove Composite High School.
“We’d like to first thank Mrs. Leslie Kronewitt for her leadership and contributions to Parkland School Division’s Lead Team these past few years," stated Acting Superintendent Boyce.
“Woodhaven Middle School will continue to benefit from Mrs. Kronewitt’s dedication to students and the entire school community should look forward to the leadership skills of Ms. Enders who will bring many unique experiences and a perspective that will benefit Woodhaven during the building modernization they get to experience over the next few years.”
“Mr. Partington has a strong background in relationship building. His previous posts as a School Counsellor, Aboriginal Facilitator and Social Studies Teacher will serve him well as he transitions to this administrative appointment.”
