Welcome Back Message from East's Principal

Welcome back students, parents/guardians, and staff! 

Wow, we have had a busy start to the year already and there are some changes in the school to tell you about.  Mrs. Oullette has joined our office team as Head Secretary for the next three months and is doing a wonderful job.  We would appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this transition in the office.  Mrs. Lysgaard will be teaching our grade 3 class in the PM and Mrs. Derechey will be teaching the grade 2 class.  I am excited that we are able to find such great teachers to join our East Elementary team.  In addition, it looks like our student enrollment is up and we may be reconfiguring some of our classes in the upcoming weeks and I will keep you up to date on any of those changes.

Most importantly, our teachers and support staff are looking forward to seeing your children walk through our doors.  There is a wonderful atmosphere of anticipation and excitement in the school. Bulletin boards are being decorated, classrooms are being set up, desks are being moved around and amazing lessons are being created.  We had our first staff meeting during the teacher work days and I was immediately impressed by what a fun and compassionate staff we have here at East Elementary. When I adjourned the meeting, I told the staff that my goal is for East Elementary to be the very best school in Leduc and the school where everyone wants to be.  The staff laughed at me and replied that “We already are!”.  With that kind of attitude, who can argue? 

I look forward to meeting all of you and I encourage you to stop by the office or speak to your classroom teacher if you have any questions or concerns.  Welcome Back!!

Mr. Chomlak

Change is coming to East Elementary!

Hello everyone,

I write to you today with very mixed emotions and a heavy heart. I need to let you know that I have decided to accept a position at Robina Baker School in Devon. I have immensely enjoyed my time at East Elementary School and have become quite passionate about our school and it's community. This is truly a tremendous school, filled with dedicated caring staff, involved parents and amazing students. It is a place that has come to fill a large piece of my heart and I am sad to leave such a fabulous team. The move is strictly one based on the decision to move to a school that is significantly closer to home and family. I will miss you all deeply.

Another announcement and change for our school is Mrs. Greenhough (grade 2) will be leaving for Bellevue School in the fall. She will be greatly missed, however, she is also moving to be closer to her family.

There will be other staffing changes that will be posted shortly and an updated staff list will be posted to our staff page on this blog.

I would like to send out Congratulations and a Huge Eagle Welcome to Zane Chomlak who will be the new principal for East Elementary School. Mr. Chomlak comes to us from Thorsby Elementary and is excited to become a part of the community.

As always, thank you for your support and being part of a great educational team for your children.

Warmest Regards,

Katherine Kloschinsky

Way to go Eagles!!!!!

Our school sent 134 grade 1-6 students to the District track meet held in Devon at Riverview School on June 3. The weather was amazing, the students enjoyed themselves and had lots of fun and they all represented East with awesome Eagle team spirit!! We were able to enjoy our new tent that EEPA casino funds paid for (Thank you! Thank you!) and the students all looked very sharp in the new orange track t-shirts. A huge thank you goes out to all of the parent volunteers for helping to supervise and to all the teachers that helped organize all the planning of the teams. Way to go Eagles!
