All About Us …

 Adam Robertson Elementary School is a K-7 school, with approximately 320 students at the present time. A.R.E.S. is part of School District #8 (Kootenay Lake). We are located in the town of Creston, BC. Creston itself has a population of about 5,000, but the surrounding communities bring that total to approximately 15,000 people. Creston is located in what is known as the Creston Valley in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. The main industries in the area are agriculture and forestry, but the tourist industry is also very strong, with scenic Kootenay Lake close nearby. Hunting, fishing, golfing, hiking and snowmobiling are some of the recreational activities enjoyed by the residents in this photographer’s paradise.

Principal’s Message …

I am pleased to be given the responsibility of being the Principal of ARES school.  The school is a great place full of learning, enjoyment, friendships and responsibilities.  Together as a community we strive to achieve our best through nurturing, collaboration and leadership.  I am looking forward to another fabulous year.

I believe our school needs to be a respectful, caring place where everyone feels welcome and all people enjoy coming together to learn. I encourage people to get involved in the valuable resource, our children’s education.  Many opportunities will arise throughout the year for volunteering and making a positive impact on our children.  It is said that it takes a whole community to raise a child.
