Principal’s Welcome Back Message 2019-2020 

Dearest Red Earth Creek School (RECS) Family, Friends, Staff and Students;

Welcome Back!

I hope you had a wonderful summer!  I am so pleased to be principal of REC school again this year.  Our mission statement is respect, encourage and collaborate to ensure we succeed together. Furthermore, our vision statement fosters a positive and respectful learning environment which embraces diversity and collaboration, and inspires students to flourish as lifelong learners. Our values, mission and vision statements guide our collective work in ensuring a safe and caring learning environment that stimulates learning for all students throughout the year.  As we begin our work together for the 2019-2020 school year, remember that if we try our best, success will follow us! I hope to see all of you at the Open House/Meet the Teacher Night BBQ at the REC school on Wednesday September 11 at 5:30 p.m..


We are delighted to welcome back Crystal Saunders and Amy Burke from their leaves of absence. We also welcome back Ashley Wiggs, who is our new E.C.S. and grade one teacher. Two new Educational Assistants joined our team last year and will be continuing with us again this year. Welcome back Victoria Noskiye and Rhonda Evison.

Facilities Update

Last year, new internal and external surveillance cameras were installed at REC school to add to our already safe and caring learning environment. The new system will increase our ability to provide ongoing safety and security to our children and staff.

School Council and RECESS

Thank you to the members of our community that gave their time to the school council and RECESS committees last year. Volunteering is an excellent way to add to the school culture and climate, and joining these committees provides benefits to the entire school and community. Our first school council meeting will be held at REC school on September 24 at 6:00 p.m., and we hope to see you there.  

Once again, I am excited and looking forward to being the principal at REC school for 2019-2020. I know we will continue to work together as a team to provide the greatest opportunities for our students to achieve success so they are better prepared for their journey to who they are becoming.


Mr. Erin Reilly
