Nolan Krauss has been appointed as the new principal at Iron Ridge Junior Campus (IRJC), effective at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year. Mr. Krauss will replace Mrs. Alda Lovell who has taken on the role of Coordinator of Learning Supports at the Wolf Creek Public Schools (WCPS) Division Office.

“I am very excited to be joining the Iron Ridge Junior Campus team. I am looking forward to connecting with the students, staff and parents at IRJC as we head into the 2015-2016 school year,” said Krauss. “Being a principal is a privilege that has been entrusted to me and it is an honour to join the IRJC staff. I will sincerely miss my colleagues, the students and the parents at Bluffton School but I look forward to this new opportunity and the experiences that Iron Ridge Junior Campus will no doubt provide!”

This is Nolan’s 14th year with Wolf Creek (2001-present) having served as a teacher, assistant principal and principal at Bluffton School. Prior to joining Wolf Creek Public Schools, Nolan taught in Saskatchewan for three years.

Nolan has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to Wolf Creek, including serving on the Administrators’ Executive in 2012-13. Under his leadership, Bluffton School hosted a Technology Symposium for WCPS staff, an endeavour which grew into the division’s annual 21CTLS Event. In 2010, Nolan was recognized with the CARCSA Distinguished Leadership Award.

Nolan’s commitment to Bluffton School has been highlighted by a focus on technology and learning, including involvement in the Emerge 1:1 Laptop Project. He has connected with many students, parents and colleagues through dedication to extra-curricular athletics. In 2006, Nolan was recognized with an Alberta Excellence in Teaching Award.

Nolan completed his M. Ed (2012) with Wilkes University and holds a B. Ed (1998) from Brandon Uni- versity.
