Principal’s Message

Welcome to our school website!

My name is Mark Douangchanh and I am excited and proud to be the new principal at Beach Grove Elementary. I know that Beach Grove is a wonderful place to learn, and we are blessed to be in such a beautiful and vibrant community. I look forward to getting to know all the students as I work with our talented teachers and staff, who work hard everyday to make our school the best place it can be.

I also look forward to working with our PAC, who works so hard to provide our school with additional supports and resources. Together, as a school community (teachers, staff, students and parents) we will continue to make Beach Grove the best school it can be.

Some of my past experience in Education include being the principal at Devon Gardens Elementary and Principal at Port Guichon Elementary. Before becoming a principal I spent time at Port Guichon, South Park and Richardson, as Vice Principal. As a teacher, I have experience with all age groups but most of all enjoyed my time at the elementary level.

My hope is to provide an environment where our students look forward to coming to school each and every day. My hope is that we be a school where everyone tries to get better everyday. Yes, students can get better everyday…but teachers, staff and principals can always get better too. It is this continuous effort to seek improvement that will allow us to keep growing stronger as a school community.

Please join us in our journey of continuous improvement. Come be a part of school community as we strive to make our school an amazing place for learning.

Whether in the hallways, outside on our school grounds, via phone or email; whether you are a student, staff member, parent or grandparent…I look forward to chatting with you and getting to know you as we work together.
