Nolan Krauss has been appointed as the new principal of Bluffton School effective at the beginning of the 2008/09 school year.

Krauss is replacing former principal Mark McWhinnie, who has assumed a new role with Wolf Creek Public Schools as technology integration coordinator.

Krauss holds a Bachelor of Education degree from Brandon University and is currently approved for a Master of Educational Administration and Leadership through the University of Alberta which he will be attending through online courses beginning this fall.

“I am thrilled about the opportunity to take on the principalship duties at Bluffton School,” Krauss said of his new position. “Being part of the school community over the past several years has allowed me to contribute to and benefit from the many improvements and new initiatives at the school. I feel very proud and privileged to be part of such a strong and supportive team at Bluffton School. I look forward to promoting our school, students, our fantastic staff and the various programs that we have to offer.”

Krauss, his wife Rebecca and two sons – three and half-year old Reid and two-year old Nate, enjoy spending time with friends and family while partaking in a variety of recreational activities at Gull Lake.

“Nolan is an energetic leader who continues to be deeply committed to the success of Bluffton School,” said Wolf Creek Deputy Superintendent Kurt Sacher. “I have every confidence that he is ready to transition into the principalship.”

Krauss began his teaching career in 1998 at Torquay School in Saskatchewan’s Estevan Rural School Division. In 2001, Krauss joined Wolf Creek Public Schools where he taught junior high school social studies, physical education and computers at the Bluffton School.

In 2007, Krauss was appointed as the acting Assistant Principal of the school. In addition to his teaching assignments, Krauss is also the technology contact for Bluffton School which has approximately 150 students enrolled in Kindergarten to Grade 9.
