New Lakedell Principal for 2017-2018: Mr. Donald Teplyske
As you may have been aware, Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools is undergoing some school reconfiguration and administration changes and as a result there will be a change at Lakedell School for the 2017-2018 school year.
I am pleased to announce that Mr. Donald Teplyske will be the new Principal of Lakedell School effective next school year. Mr. Teplyske has spent the last 5 school years as the Principal of Winfield School and will bring a wealth of experience and passion to our school.
Please look to our upcoming April Newsletter for a brief biography of Mr. Teplyske and also be sure to attend our Celebration of Learning and Interest Fair on April 6th from 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm when Mr. Teplyske will be in attendance to meet all of our families and students.
While it will be very difficult to leave Lakedell School after the last 5 years of growing and learning together with my school community; please note that I will continue as the Principal of Lakedell School until the end of August 2017, when I will transfer to my new role as Principal of Clear Vista School in Wetaskiwin.
Both Mr. Teplyske and myself will be working closely together throughout this Spring to ensure a smooth transition for our families, students and staff. As always, please feel free to contact me at the school if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
