This letter serves to inform you that I have been reassigned to a new role within the Coquitlam School District as District Principal of School Services and Special Projects. Part of my new assignment will be working with Programs of Choice, such as the Mandarin Bilingual Program. My last day at Walton will be Friday, January 24, 2020. I was informed of the news last night.
I would like to introduce Mr. Marco Jankowiak as the new principal of Walton starting Monday, January 27, 2020. Mr. Jankowiak is currently principal of James Park Elementary in Port Coquitlam. I know that he will bring a new perspective and level of energy to Walton!
Ms. Kemp will stay on at Walton as Vice-Principal.
It has been an honour and pleasure to work with your families. I have been at Walton for six years, marking the longest that I’ve ever worked at a single school. This is a very special place to learn and teach. Walton is in good hands as I know the focus for the staff will continue to be on your child. We have collectively worked hard to make Walton an amazing place for students. I know that Walton will continue to thrive under Mr. Jankowiak’s leadership.
I’d like to extend a thank you to the staff of Walton. All have worked hard to make Walton a wonderful place to call home for six years. I’d also like to thank the Walton PAC for their wonderful support over the years.
I hope to see you at the Winter Musical next week so I can say farewell to you in person.
