About Roy Van Eerden

Roy has been on staff at ACS for more than two decades! While most of us know him as the elementary principal, over the years he has also been a grade five teacher, grade seven teacher, vice principal, and community relations coordinator. He and his wife Jane have two children and two grandchildren. He enjoys cycling and fondly remembers cycling from Victoria to Edmonton as part of the 10th annual Cycling for Celiacs ride. If an opportunity to go canoeing or kayaking presents itself, Roy will jump at it, carefully.
