Changes to Principal and Vice Principal Assignments for September 2020

Director of Education Deb Crawford has announced changes to the Principal and Vice Principal assignments for September 2020.  The reassignments are due, in part, to the announced retirements of Brendan Deery, Principal of Special Education; Adrien Gagnier, Principal of St. Agnes Catholic School, Chatham; Christine Lambert, Principal of St. Peter Canisius Catholic School, Watford; and Luana Sfalcin, Principal of St. John Fisher Catholic School, Forest.

“The St. Clair Catholic District School Board has greatly benefited from the wisdom and dedication of Brendan, Adrien, Christine and Luana,” says Mrs. Crawford.  “They will be greatly missed and remembered with fondness by our St. Clair Catholic family.”

In addition to the announced retirements, the opening of the new St. Angela Merici Catholic School in Chatham, which will receive students from the St. Agnes, St. Vincent and Our Lady of Fatima communities, has resulted in further changes.

“I am very pleased to announce the Principal and Vice Principal placements for September 2020 and am proud to introduce these outstanding Catholic leaders to their school communities,” says Mrs. Crawford.

  1. Juli Faubert, Principal, Monsignor Uyen Catholic School, Chatham is appointed to Principal, St. Angela Merici Catholic School, Chatham;
