Principal's Message

Next Steps in my Professional Journey

Dear Piitoayis Family School Parents and Guardians,
I am writing to inform you that I announced to staff this afternoon my plan to Niit’tahk’kak’koo - to take the next steps in my professional and educational journey. At the end of this school year, June 30, 2022, I will leave Piitoayis Family School as your principal to begin a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) – Educational Research degree program at the University of Calgary.
It has been my pleasure and honor to lead our school community for the past six years as your Assistant Principal and Principal. I have grown professionally and established many life-long friendships with students, families, and staff. My time at PFS has been by far my most rewarding learning experience. Hand to heart in gratitude.
My hope for our students is that they continue to embody our traditional PFS values of aatsimmoiyhkanni-ceremony, kimmapiiypitsinni- kindness, kakyosin-awareness, and aksistoiypaittapiisinni-independence. Our values provide a strong foundation for their academic and personal journey. I look forward to witnessing each student walk the stage to receive their Grade 12 high school diploma in the future. A gentle reminder to always help your child remember to be proud of who they are and where they come from as Indigenous people.
I am grateful to share that there will be a consultative opportunity for students, staff, and families to share their thoughts during the selection process of the new principal. I will share via School Messenger when available. Your voice is necessary; please take the time to complete the online survey.
There is still a full spring of learning and fun activities before my departure, please stop by the school for a visit and a chat. I will follow PFS tradition by saying kitaikitamatsin – we’ll see you soon; my heart and spirit will not be far from PFS.
Kitaikitamatsin,
Iikiinayookaa M. Yellow Horn Principal
