2023/2024 St. John XXIII School Council Executive

Shawnene Wallgreen - Chair

My name is Shawnene Wallgren, and I am the new co-chair of the Parent Council here at St. John XXIII. I absolutely love the supportive and cohesive group of staff and family that we have to lead us through the school year. Growing up in a rural community, and bringing my children up in a similar situation, faith and family are our core principles. I look forward to finding new ways to lean into the families, children and community. By sharing new experiences and helping to bring our children a joyful season. Cheers!

Candice Kalyn – Co-Chair

Hi everyone! I’m so incredibly grateful to be a part of the St John XXIII family. My daughter, Cecily is currently in Grade 3 and loving every minute of it. I’m excited to continue my journey with School Council and to be a part of some exciting events and collaborations supporting school administration.

I thrive on bringing joy to others and lending a helping hand in any way I can. I’m looking forward to learning my new role as vice-chair and helping any way I can.

Christi McTaggart - Vice Chair

Korinne Weima - Council Secretary

Hello Families! My name is Korinne Weima and I have two young boys named Owen, and Jax who both attend school at the incredible St. John XXIII. I grew up in Northern Ontario and moved to Alberta in 2010 to start my career as a teacher! My experiences as a teacher, student support facilitator and MOM will meld well with this opportunity to be Called to More, a partner with parents as the returning secretary on the Parent Council. My heart is so happy to have my boys attend St. John XXIII, I see how the leadership supports the teachers, which in turn, allows them to care for, and love on, our children. I look forward to staying connected, learning from ALL of you, and sharing my voice and ideas.

Alana Seymour – Treasurer  

Hi everyone! My name is Alana Seymour and I have two amazing kiddos. My oldest, Sage, is at STJPII, and my youngest, Remi, is in grade 3 at our school. I am incredibly blessed to be the Treasurer of our amazing School Council for the 2023/2024 school year. I began my School Council journey five years ago, as the Communications/Classroom rep. Being part of the school council has helped me become more involved in my child's education and has enabled me to develop relationships with other parents, teachers, and administration. I highly recommend getting involved in your child's school, it is rewarding in many ways. Please feel free to connect with me if you have any questions.
