Greetings Spruce View Community!

I am so excited to once again be a part of the administration team here at Spruce View School. Last school year was my first year as Principal at SVS after teaching here for 17 years prior. In between, I was the Vice-Principal at Poplar Ridge School. I have been overjoyed with the warm Viking welcome, and look forward to many great days and years ahead with you all.

I want you to know that I welcome your conversations, questions, and wonderings about the school, community, engagement, and anything school-related. Please make appointments to see me, let me know how I can help, and let me know what your child(ren) are doing in the community as I would love to attend! Again, if there are any upcoming community events where I can connect with the community in a meaningful way, please reach out to us!

As you know, I have been a Viking for 17 years prior to my new role as Principal of SVS. Previously, I worked as a classroom teacher in grades 1-12. During this time, I was embedded in the Spruce View community, and am excited to reconnect with stakeholders, parents, and partners in the upcoming years as Principal. I truly feel like I am home again.

I am thankful for the warm welcome I  have received and reflect on what it means to be grateful. In the spirit of gratitude, please know how honoured I am to be part of this wonderful community, admin partners, teachers, and proud Vikings. I continue to be impressed by how all members of the SVS community embody pride in self, pride in community, and pride in others.

With gratitude

Claire Funk
