The Board of Trustees for The Horizon School Division is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Rachelle Miller as the new principal of Milk River Elementary School and Erle Rivers High School commencing with the 2021-2022 school year.                          

Mrs. Miller completed her Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Languages, at the University of Lethbridge and then went on to complete an after degree in Education, majoring in French Language Arts and Social Studies.  After graduating Mrs. Miller was a sub teacher, for a brief period, and has been teaching in Milk River since 2012.

During her time at Erle Rivers High School Mrs. Miller has held many leadership roles including Athletic Director and Assistant Principal. She has also participated in the Leadership Quality Standards workshops with the ATA and has earned her leadership accreditation.

Rachelle and her husband Devon (born and raised in Milk River) have 2 sons Colton and Quinn. The couple is excited to raise their family in the community that Devon grew up in and Rachelle has fallen in love with. In her spare time Rachelle likes to golf, camp, snowmobile and ski and she says she can never get enough of friends and family.

Rachelle says, “I’m overcome with joy and excitement to be coming back to work in the fall in my new role where I will be able to focus on reconnecting with students, staff, and parents and collaborating together to bring two great schools together into one community school.”

The Board Chair, Marie Logan, states, “The Board of Trustees is confident Milk River students, staff, and community will benefit from Mrs. Miller’s strong community connection and focus on fostering effective relationships.” The division looks forward to working with Mrs. Miller, parents, and the staff of Milk River as they prepare for an amalgamation that will create new learning spaces and the continued efforts to facilitate quality teaching and optimum learning.
