Stowers Elementary School's new Assistant Principal

Dear Parents,

I am very happy to announce the selection of Stowers Elementary School's new assistant principal, Dr. Marilee Henderson.  Dr. Henderson comes to us with expertise in early childhood education and literacy.  I have attached her bio so you can read more specifics.  Dr. Henderson is coming from a DoDEA school at Atsugi Naval Air Station in Japan and will be here on Monday, October 15th. Read Dr. Henderson's bio here.

A special thanks goes out to my acting principal, Mr. Patrick Hall.  He has been a most helpful admin partner who was immediately loved by our students and staff.  His sense of humor and attention to help me in any way is deeply appreciated!

Saddling Up for Success,
