It is with great pride and excitement that I announce that I will be serving as your child’s newly appointed Principal. My name is Shelly Gelfand, and I am privileged and honoured to be joining the Prince of Wales family. I want to extend a warm greeting to everyone and I look forward to working alongside all of you for the remainder of this school year and beyond.
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. Over the past 28 years. I have served as a teacher, Learning Leader and administrator with the Calgary Board of Education. Schools that I have taught at include Canyon Meadows, Willow Park, Prince of Wales and West Dover.  For the past five years, I have served as an Assistant Principal at Brentwood and Copperfield Schools respectively.  I was afforded the opportunity to open Copperfield School three years ago.
Personally, I am married (to another educator) and have two wonderful children, Jennifer (25) and Ayden (22). 
I believe strongly that every child can succeed and that the school and families work together for the greatest impact on our children.  As the African proverb states “it takes a village to raise a child.” One of the most important aspects of my work at Prince of Wales School will be building strong relationships with students, teachers and families.  You’ll find me in the hallways, classrooms and on the playground getting to know your child(ren).  My passion has been and always will be educating students. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities and interests. I will celebrate their successes and encourage them every day.  I will let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community. My goal as Principal at POW School is to ensure the safety and success of each student, every day.
My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas! As I begin my transition there will be opportunities organized to come and meet me.  Please watch for these.
I am looking forward to meeting everyone and working together.
Warm Regards,
Shelly Gelfand
Principal, Prince of Wales​
