Principal Donna Carricato has announced her retirement from the Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board. In her forty years with the board, Carricato served as teacher, music consultant, religious education / family life consultant, and vice-principal.

She was also the principal at several Catholic elementary schools, including St. Francis French Immersion, St. Ann, and most recently, St. Mary’s French Immersion.

“I have many fond memories from the various roles I have held and the people I have encountered while working at the board,” said Carricato.

“I am especially thankful to God for the privilege to work with colleagues and the opportunity to serve the children and families within our Catholic community.”

“I look forward to continuing my involvement in education through Nipissing University, where I have accepted a position as Faculty Advisor for the 2018-19 year,” added Carricato.

“We thank Donna for her many years of service, both to the board and to the community,” said Director of Education, Rose Burton Spohn.

“As the board’s United Way representative, a Rotarian, and member of several committees including CPCO and Leading Student Achievement, Donna was a fine model of our board’s faith principles.  She was also a strong advocate for French immersion instruction, and we wish her much contentment and success in the next chapter of her life.”
