Clearview is pleased to announce that the new Principal of Byemoor School is Jeffery Aarts. Aarts will be taking the position when current Principal Gwen Keith retires at the end of the 2021-22 school year.

“We are so happy to welcome Jeffery Aarts to this role!” says Brenda MacDonald, Clearview Superintendent. “He has been a teacher and athletics director for both Gus Wetter and Coronation Schools. Jeff has a strong commitment to personal excellence and strives for quality programming for students. His past dedication to programming, students, and to coaching will serve him well in his new leadership role in Byemoor. We look forward to seeing him work together with staff, community and students to ensure ongoing success for Byemoor students and for the Byemoor community.” 

Aarts has been a teacher for 19 years, with the last four being in Clearview.  Aarts joins Byemoor school after one year teaching at Gus Wetter School in Castor, and after three years before that at Coronation School. Previous to his work in Clearview, Aarts taught in remote communities in Northern Manitoba and in Nova Scotia. Also Aarts has taught in an outreach setting and a unique program in a women’s shelter in St. Paul, Alberta.

“I am looking forward to being the new Principal of Byemoor School,” says Aarts. “I appreciate the hard work of the current administration and the dedication of the Byemoor community. I am excited to learn more about the culture within the school community and I look forward to continuing the work of supporting all students in their learning.” 

Aarts continues, “What I love most about education is the opportunity to develop positive relationships, gain an understanding of where people are in their own journey, and watching the growth of others. I value the opportunity to work with the entire school community to strengthen an already excellent, student-focused approach to learning.”
