Welcome to Maitland River Elementary School

Maitland River Elementary School

Welcome to Maitland River Elementary School. This is my first year as principal in this beautiful new school. This is the beginning of my 10th year as a principal with the Avon Maitland District School Board. I am so happy “to be home” and working in my own community. I feel that it is a privilege and one that I do not take for granted. I appreciate that I will see the community in a whole new light and with new lenses based on my new role in this community.

Maitland River Elementary School is the home of 485 students and 49 staff members. It has an extremely supportive School Council. Parents contribute a great deal to our school community through their support of many facets of our educational experiences. Their support is appreciated and necessary to move our school forward academically and socially.

I have not yet had the opportunity to work with the staff to have rich discussions about our specific goals for the 2015-2016 school year, but know that they will be aligned with the Avon Maitland District School Board’s Goals:

  • We Will Create Positive and Inclusive Learning Environments
  • Maximize Student Outcomes – (problem solving, creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking)

I will update this message when we have defined our work.

The format of this website is new to everyone. We will work to make it user friendly and to keep it up to date. Our goal is to have links to all social media and to keep the calendar as up-to-date and informative as possible. This will take us some time.

The key to success will be the communication with all of our educational partners. I encourage and invite all partners to contact us any time. If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas to share please do not hesitate to contact me at 519 357 3551 or at angecowl@fc.amdsb.ca

We welcome you to be part of an amazing educational experience and look forward to a wonderful year ahead.
