When I was told that I was going to be the principal of D.W. Poppy I was not only very excited about the opportunity, but also honoured to continue to be a part of the wonderful D.W. Poppy Redhawk learning community. Having been at D.W. Poppy for over six years as vice principal I have seen first-hand the level of excellence in academics, arts, trades, and athletics year after year. Our staff has always been committed to see our students reach their full potential, whether in or out of the classroom. They have continued to move forward with the implementation of the new curriculum and are dedicated to assure that our students are taught the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in our ever-changing world. I am excited about the year ahead, to work together with the staff, students, and parent community, to see our Redhawks soar to new heights.
