Dear Parents and Caregivers,
I am excited to join the dynamic Dr. Gordon Townsend School community as the Principal. I would like to thank and acknowledge the strong leadership of Janice Richardson, who is currently supporting my transition to Principal. Rest assured, I will be working closely with the entire DGTS community to attend to the safety, well-being and academic success of all of your children. I look forward to working with parents/caregivers and our partner, Alberta Health Services, to help all students belong, connect and thrive.
On behalf of Janice Richardson, Andrew Heaton and myself, I would like to thank the staff of Dr. Gordon Townsend School who have worked tirelessly this year to ensure that our students have the best educational and social/emotional support to help them build resiliency, grow and learn. Thank you for your dedication and heart, and for continuing to put our students first. We also want to thank the families, caregivers, and programs that support the wonderful young people that we serve together.
I am already looking forward to next year. The 2021/2022 school year will start on Tuesday, August 17. To review our calendar and bell times, please click here.
Have a safe and relax summer.
Principal, Dr. Gordon Townsend School
