Two administrators from Seven Oaks Elementary School in Lacey will take the helm at other schools on July 1, according to North Thurston Public Schools spokeswoman Courtney Schrieve.
Seven Oaks principal Ron Sisson will become principal at Lakes Elementary School. He will replace Mike McDonald, who is retiring.
Sisson, 44, has led Seven Oaks for nine years. He has a bachelor’s degree in public health, teaching credentials from National University and a master’s degree in education and educational leadership from City University.
“Ron is a strong principal leader with a heart for kids, whose skills are ideally suited for Lakes,” North Thurston superintendent Raj Manhas said in a news release. “We are excited about his leadership and vision for one of our largest elementary schools.”
Meantime, Seven Oaks’ dean of students Angie DeAguiar will become principal of Meadows Elementary School on July 1. She will replace Allison Shepard, who has taken a principal job at Edison Elementary School in Tacoma.
DeAguiar, 51, has worked at Seven Oaks for 17 years, including nearly a dozen years as a classroom teacher. She has a bachelor’s degree from Saint Martin’s University, a master’s degree from Antioch University and an administrative certificate from Saint Martin’s.
“Angie is an experienced and passionate educator who will be able to lead the staff and students at Meadows to continue the positive direction set by Ms. Shepard,” assistant superintendent of elementary education Joe Belmonte said in a news release.
A search is underway to hire a new principal at Seven Oaks, Schrieve said.
