JAMESTOWN – Ring Elementary School will have a new principal when the new school year begins in July.
On Wednesday the Jamestown School Board approved the appointment of Annette Miller to the position. Miller had previously served as the districts K-8 literacy coordinator.
Superintendent Bret Apthorpe said the search for a principal has taken some time but the district eventually found the right choice.
“I approached Annette and we had a really wonderful conversation about being principal at Ring because Annette has been to Ring many times, she knows the staff, and she is a champion of children,” Apthorpe said. “She would go over to Ring and see the kids and be around them. Every time she did, she came back more excited about the possibility of being Principal at Ring.”
The position opened up when current Ring school principal Connie Foster took the newly created position of director of world languages for the district.
