Principal's Message

MR. STEENWINKEL PHOTOWelcome 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 lead our school so that it will embrace lifelong learning. Through the promotion and development of positive ‌relationships among students, staff, and families, we are fostering academic achievement, embracing diversity and nurturing 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 is an inclusive classroom learning space for students from kindergarten to grade nine. We are pleased to partner with Discovery Out of School Care to provide this service to working parents.

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 through our webpage, Schoolzone, or social media channels. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if I can be of any assistance.
