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.

New to our District?

Donald R. Getty School has a primary, secondary and then open boundary for registration for the 2018 - 2019 school year

  • Students who live in our primary attendance area of Chappelle West will have guaranteed access to programming in our K-9 school community environment.
  • Students who live in our secondary attendance area of Chappelle East will have secondary access to programming once all registrations from the primary boundary have been received (April 30) in our K-9 school community environment, if space provides at the chosen grade level.

Students living outside these two designated attendance areas and who do not currently attend our school are welcome to submit enrolment forms and will be accommodated if space provides at the chosen grade level.

We are anticipating full classes from kindergarten to grade 3.


Children who are four years of age on or before March 1 2018 may register in Kindergarten‌ for the 2018 - 2019 school year.
