Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year

​I hope that your family has enjoyed a relaxing summer. The break is also very important to school staff. Teaching is a demanding profession that requires energy, commitment, and dedication in serving the needs of students within our schools. Our staff came back together in our pre-school planning days with a renewed energy and passion for the work that we do every day.
We have a few changes to our school staff this year. In June, we were able to announce that Mrs. Susan Westgate was joining MTS as our new Assistant Principal. Mrs. Westgate has been very busy as she brings “her fresh set of eyes” to MTS while getting to know students and staff. Mrs. Bitz, our Resource teacher is teaching a morning kindergarten this year.
She is a very busy individual, retaining her Resource responsibilities at half time, as well as serving as a Learning Leader at the school. Mrs. Braun, Grade 1 teacher and LL, completes our administrative team. 
I feel privileged to work with a team of such exceptional talent. I honour and respect their perspectives and wisdom as we work together to serve McKenzie Towne School.
We welcome several new teachers to our school: 
Emily Catsirelis, Grade 3
Rachel Sharma, returning to MTS from leave – AM Kindergarten
Stephanny Penfold, replacing Sarah Lambert who is on medical leave – Grade 2
Kalryssa Geraghty,  replacing Janet Purdy who is on medical leave – Grade 1
We have almost 560 students this year at MTS! Final enrolment numbers will be submitted to the CBE at the end of September when we will update you again on numbers.
I look forward to continuing to get to know our students and parents over the year. I am committed to excellence in student learning, teaching and leadership and to working collaboratively with staff, parents and students to ensure the best possible education for our children at McKenzie Towne School. Feel free to contact me at​
Please do not hesitate to co​ntact me at school at or 403-777-6185 if you have questions, suggestions or concerns. 
Regards,Dr. Lorraine Slater
