Horizon School Division No. 67 is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Sharon Skretting as the new principal of Vauxhall Elementary School beginning the 2019-2020 school year.
Ms. Skretting brings to the job over 25 years of experience and two degrees: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education. Having taught in a variety of elementary grade positions at Vauxhall Elementary School and acted as a divisional Learning Coach, Sharon brings strong instructional knowledge base and experience to serve Vauxhall students going into the future.
Ms. Skretting is excited about returning to Vauxhall Elementary School to serve the staff, students and larger community. She considers this school “home” and is honoured to have the opportunity to work with the outstanding professional staff to continue Vauxhall Elementary School’s success as a child-centered, engaged community of learners.
Ms. Skretting states, “I am honoured and excited to come home to Vauxhall Elementary School and give back to the community which has provided my family and I so much support. Together with the amazing staff, we will continue to focus on building relationships with parents and students, engaging learners, and ever-striving to meet the needs of the “whole” child.”
Sharon and her husband, Darren, have lived in the Vauxhall for the past 33 years and have three children Matthew, Brock and Tristan. Over the years, they have been actively involved in curling, golf, and various community events. In her spare time, Sharon also enjoys camping, kayaking, hiking, writing and publishing books, blogging, and creating teacher resources.
The Board of Trustees is confident Vauxhall students, staff, and community will benefit from Mrs. Skretting’s commitment to the Vauxhall community, passion for engaged learning, instructional leadership, and belief in an inclusive learning environment to benefit all students. Please join us in welcoming Sharon to this new adventure with Team Horizon.
