A Message from the Superintendent

Welcome to Evergreen Catholic Separate Regional Division No. 2 website!  We are proud to serve families in five distinct communities: Devon, Hinton, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, and Westlock.

Following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, our mission in Evergreen Catholic Schools is to educate in an atmosphere of faith, hope, and love so as to prepare our students to live as compassionate, confident, and contributing citizens. Everything we do in our schools supports our mission:

Ever Growing, Learning, and Living in Christ

From school to school, I witness exemplary respect for and expression of our Catholic faith. Whether we bring the Church to school, or send the school to church, we provide our students with powerful opportunities to encounter God, and to be shaped by the Eucharist, the source and summit of our Christian life.

Much of the work we do is in response to the provincial initiative, Inspiring Education, which outlines a vision for education in Alberta. The emerging model for education in Alberta focuses on a process of inquiry and discovery. Technology will have an increasingly significant role in our classrooms. In keeping with the mission of our division and the vision for education in the province, we continue to offer Catholic education of the highest quality. 

I am honoured to be the Superintendent of Evergreen Catholic School Division. I was visiting a kindergarten class recently and I asked the students if they had advice for me as superintendent.  One boy gave me advice that is pictured here.  Simple wisdom from a five year old. The reward in my position is that I learn every day.
