Principal’s Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to Peachland Elementary School! As the only school in the beautiful Okanagan community of Peachland, we are a hub of learning very well connected with the community. Our school's learning culture is centered in kindness, where each child is supported in their learning journeys by a caring and dedicated team of teachers and support staff.

Since joining the school as principal in April 2018, I have been so impressed with the heartfelt kindness and welcoming attitude shown to me by students, parents and staff members alike. Several initiatives have been launched to help students contribute to and feel a sense of ownership with the school. They took an active role in creating the new school logo featured on this website. It features our mascot the eagle, reminding all of us that our attitude helps determine our altitude in life. Students are also taking on new leadership roles at the school, such as morning announcement leaders, assembly leaders, and kindness leaders.

If you are an existing family here at PLE, I look forward to continuing to work with you to help your child have the best experience possible at this amazing school. If you are a new family in the area, I encourage you to make an appointment to tour the school. I believe in an open-door policy and welcome any feedback and inquiry.

The upcoming 2018 – 2019 school year will be my first full year here as principal, and I am brimming with excitement to be working in such a passionate learning culture.

Mr. Ross Hett
