Additional Principal Appointment for 2020-2021
May 8, 2020 - Parkland School Division’s Superintendent of Schools, Shauna Boyce, is pleased to announce that the new Principal of Millgrove School, effective August 2020, will be Linda Madge-Arkinstall.
With Archie Lillico's assignment to Parkland Village School in the last round of administrative movement, the Millgrove School vacancy was the last Principal role to fill for the 2020-2021 school year.
"I know I've said it before but we have one of the best Leadership Teams in the province when it comes to our Administrators in Parkland School Division," stated Superintendent Boyce.
"Linda has shown her leadership in her current role as Assistant Principal at Millgrove and families in that school community will continue to benefit from her kind and compassionate approach to relationship building with the students she serves."
