MES Principal Announcement

Students at Magrath Elementary School will be seeing a new face in the Principal’s office this fall.  Westwind School Division is happy to announce that Julie Gilson has been selected as the new principal of MES. Mrs. Gilson will be replacing Brad Sabey, who is assuming the duties as principal at Magrath High School.

Hiring decisions for principals were made using Alberta Education’s Leadership Quality Standard as a guide. Mrs. Gilson will continue to work in her capacity of vice-principal until the end of the school year and will transition into the principal role at the beginning of September.   “I’m humbled by this opportunity and am very excited to continue to work with Magrath kids, staff, and the community,” says Mrs. Gilson. “Magrath Elementary is a special place and I look forward to continuing to build relationships and move the learning of our kids forward.”
