Bert Ambrose Changes

Good morning all, I wanted to let you know that I will not be continuing as the principal at Bert Ambrose this year. Very recently I was offered and accepted a principalship at Carmi Elementary in Penticton. It was a difficult decision but the career opportunities and ability to be closer to both my, and Donna’s family makes it the right decision for us at this time.
I am working with Mrs. Boyd and district staff to ensure as smooth a transition as possible, and am confident that Bert Ambrose will continue to thrive without me.  Mrs. Boyd will begin the year as acting principal, and Mr. McCracken will be filling in temporarily during the transition process as vice-principal. Mr. Sloan will be working to develop a succession plan to move forward.
I want to thank the Bert Ambrose community for the warm welcome I received and an amazing 3 years here. I will always hold a special place in my heart for this amazing school, students, staff and community – Carmi Elementary has BIG shoes to fill. I will keep in touch with the school and look forward to hearing about all the great things going on here.
All the best, and thanks again,
Dave Ritchie
