Warren Aspenes has been named the new principal of Donalda School, starting this fall.

“Warren is a great addition to our Clearview team as principal of Donalda School,” said Peter Barron, superintendent. “Donalda will benefit from his passion for leadership, teaching, and extensive experience in Clearview. Warren will be a great fit for Donalda School and its community, and deliver on Clearview’s goal to provide our communities with First Choice Learning Environments.”

Aspenes holds a Bachelor of Education degree, a Bachelor of Psychology degree and a Masters in Leadership and School Improvement from the University of Alberta.

He is described as a caring, creative and professional educator with 31 years of exemplary teaching experience in the classroom and 18 years of positive educational leadership in administration.

Aspenes is currently a vice principal at Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus (WEHSSC).

Previously, he was principal at Halkirk School, vice principal of Erskine and Waverly Schools and a teacher at WEHSSC and Coronation Schools.

“I am very excited to work with the students, staff, and community of Donalda,” he said.

“I believe that supporting students in their first years of public schooling is so important in helping them to achieve success in the later grades; therefore, I am delighted to have the opportunity to work in this K-9 school.

“I am grateful to the administration and staff at Wm. E. Hay for the leadership opportunities afforded to me over the last ten years. I have developed a good sense of what skills and qualities students need as they transfer into high school, and I hope to use my knowledge and experience to help prepare Donalda students to make their transition to high school successful. I will be trading in my Wildcat claws for the wings of the Eagles. Go Eagles Go!”
