At the PSD Board of Directors Meeting on April 25, 2019, the district honored Barbara Bellamy, Office Manager at Purdy Elementary, with the Ellen Faye Award. The award is given to those in the district who are nominated by their co-workers for excellence, honor and kindness.
Regarding Elementary School #10:
The Board of Directors approved the district’ recommendation that Stephanie Strader, currently principal at Harbor Heights Elementary, serve as the principal of school #10.
Principal Strader will serve three roles initially:
• support for the students attending #10 in the fall of 2019 as an overcrowding solution;
• planning their buildings for opening in 2020 (#10)
• and support for Artondale and Evergreen when their principals are out of the building to plan their school rebuilds.
The Board also approved Superintendent Jarvis's recommendation that school #10 open as a Magnet School. For more information on #10 and the Magnet School option click here.
