Principal's Message

Principal Announcement

​Dear Varsity Acres parents/guardians, students, and staff,
 
I am pleased to announce Brooke Reilly as the Acting Principal to Varsity Acres. Acting Principal Reilly brings extensive Experience to this position and is looking forward to officially joining the community on August 30th, 2022.
 
Greetings from Acting Principal Reilly are included below. Please join me in welcoming Acting Principal Reilly to Varsity Acres School.
 
I would like to thank Principal Morden for her leadership over the past two years.
 
Respectfully, Martine Sawatzky
Education Director Area 2 (Acting) and Global Learning Calgary Board of Education | cbe.ab.ca mmsawatzky@cbe.ab.ca​
Dear Staff and Community Members of Varsity Acres School,
 
I am honoured to join this vibrant community and to continue the amazing work of teaching and learning at Varsity Acres School. I am originally from Ontario and moved to Calgary in 2008 to start my teaching career with the Calgary Board of Education. I am proud to call Calgary home and to be raising my family here. As an early French Immersion student myself, I understand the benefits and challenges of the French language in both my personal and professional capacities.
 
I've taught at various middle schools in the CBE and most recently have been the Assistant Principal at Bob Edwards, a 6-9 French Immersion school, since 2016. I am passionate about teaching, collaboration and creating the conditions for success for all students. Students bring an important voice to their classrooms and need opportunities and encouragement to participate meaningfully in their learning journey. When students, families and the school team work together in service of students, we can develop strong connections, skills and confidence in our young people so that they can achieve at school and in their community.
I believe in making myself visible and available to the school community. Please feel free to contact me at brreilly@cbe.ab.ca or through the school office throughout the school year. As parents, you know your children well and your voice matters.
It is a privilege to join the Varsity Acres team. I am excited to meet your children and the dedicated team of teachers, support staff, and parents who work together to create a positive school community of learning, belonging and fun.
J'ai hâte de rencontrer tous les élèves, enseignants et familles à Varsity Acres! Sincerely yours,
Brooke Reilly​
