New vice principal for Frank J Mitchell School
Renee MacCormack was recently appointed temporary vice-principal of Frank J Mitchell Elementary School in Sparwood as of the 2015/16 school year, by the School District No. 5 (SD5) Board of Education.
Born and raised in Sparwood, MacCormack moved to Carbon, Alta. in 2001 where she taught grades 6 – 10, with a focus on technology. Returning home to Sparwood, MacCormack joined SD5 in 2012.
“In addition to her focus on academics, Renee encourages our students to be physically active, says SD5 Board Chair Frank Lento. “Last year she coordinated the EcoKids Challenge, encouraging students to walk or ride to school. In the upcoming school year Renee plans to begin a running club for students.”
MacCormack says she’s looking forward to working with the principal, staff, parents and students of FJ Mitchell to continue to offer an enriching learning environment for students while also providing new opportunities, like the running club.
“It’s important to keep things fresh by bringing new ideas to our school, our classrooms and our students. When you work as a team, you’re never out of good ideas.”
