Prairie Rose Public School would like to congratulate Rocheal Howes, who will become the new Eagle Butte High School Principal at the start of the next school year.

Howes holds a Master of Education in School Leadership and Bachelor’s degrees in Education and Kinesiology. Throughout her 22-year career, she has taught overseas in Japan, in the Medicine Hat area, at both the high school and junior high levels, and as a teacher and vice-principal of Parkside Junior High School in Redcliff. Currently, Howes is one of two vice principals at Eagle Butte High School; a role she has had since 2020.

“Eagle Butte is such a vibrant and innovative school,” says Howes. “There’s always something exciting happening, whether in our Back to Business class, through the South Alberta Hockey and Flight academies, our sports and athletics programs, fine arts initiatives, and noticeably at the heart of all other classroom activities. The school is a vibrant learning community, and I am honoured to be chosen to lead our team as we continue to create unique and impactful learning experiences for students.”

“Having worked at the junior and high school levels for many years as both a teacher and a school administrator, Rocheal has a strong leadership foundation which will serve her well in this new role,” says Superintendent Reagan Weeks. “She is a passionate school leader who is always looking for new ways to engage the school community. We look forward to seeing what the Eagle Butte staff, students, parents, and community will accomplish together.” 

Rocheal Howes will officially assume the role of Eagle Butte High School principal at the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
