Jay Cottell - Assistant Principal

I am looking forward to another year with Ponoka Elementary School as one of your Assistant Principals!

This marks my 5th year with PES and 17th year in Education, all with Wolf Creek Public Schools. 

I grew up in Central Alberta and spent a few years in Ontario but am happiest being close to mountains. Outside of school, I like to keep active playing hockey, snowboarding, hiking, and just playing with my kids. My wife and I enjoy camping in the summer with our kids and dogs and can't seem to stop renovating. The few chickens we added to the mix have become a family favorite and I can't wait for the next project I am put on.

I look forward to working more closely with the community of Ponoka as we work together to make the greatest impact we can. Please reach out if I can offer any assistance.
