Park West School

Contacting School Admin

Park West is a large school comprised of over 800 students (in grades Primary to 9) in 30 classes, and 80 people who work in our building on a daily basis. That’s almost 1000 people! They all have needs, and require attention and support. In order to provide the support and assistance they need, and operate our school effectively and efficiently, we have divided administrative responsibilities among our principal and two vice principals (our admin team).

For instance, some of the responsibilities assigned to Mr. Carter (the principal) include: finances, grade 9 trip, building maintenance and cleaning, primary orientation, and diversity. Mr. Melanson's (Vice Principal) responsibilities include: technology, lunch program, substitute teachers, hiring new staff,  Assessments, school planning team, PowerSchool, phys. ed & athletics. Ms. Olsen (Vice Principal) is responsible for health & safety, School Success Plan, scheduling,

To better assist and support teachers, their classes, and parents we have divided our homerooms between the two VPs as follows:

Mr. Melanson (vice principal)

Grades:  P - 4

Ms. Olsen (vice principal)

Grades:  5 - 9 

Please contact the appropriate Vice Principal (depending on your child’s grade/class assignment) to assist you at any time, particularly with matters of discipline and student behaviour.
