Principal's Message

‌Welcome to Donald R. Getty K-9 School. My name is Robert Steenwinkel and I am very pleased to be the first principal of Donald R. Getty K-9 School. I want you to know that I will lead our school so that it will embrace lifelong learning. Through the promotion and development of positive relationships among students, faculty, staff, and administrators we will foster academic achievement, embrace diversity and nurture respect for one another. I believe schools that are informed, energetic and thoughtful are successful schools. School communities need to have a positive climate and a supportive culture and open communication with mutual respect is key to this.  

Donald R. Getty K-9 School will open with inclusive classroom learning spaces for students from kindergarten to grade nine. We are also working to have a child care service provider on site and more information will be available about this service soon. I look forward to working with you as partners in your child’s educational career and would encourage you to keep in touch with us as we move towards school opening on September 5, through our social media accounts below. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if I can be of any assistance in the weeks ahead.  

To learn more about Donald R. Getty K-9 School or to register your child, please call us at 587.489.4708.

You are invited to join us!
