Hello FJ McElligott and Mattawa District School Board Families,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am the new Principal of FJ McElligott and MDPS and I am very excited to be here. I have been an administrator for the last 8 years and worked in several high schools in our Board. I began my teaching career in Sturgeon Falls at Northern Secondary School and can say I am a small town girl at the core, having grown in a tiny community in Northern Ontario.
We are finding ourselves in a very new and exceptional school start up this year. Please know that we are doing our best to support the unique needs of students and their families at this time. We know that reintegration into the school environment may take some time, and the early part of the school year will focus on mental health and well being.
Please continue to monitor the Near North DSB main website for up to date information as well as our school website and Facebook page.
Should you have any questions or concerns please contact me at the school or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you Karin
