Keitlyn Watson, Principal of Manson Elementary has informed the Manson School Board of her intent to resign at the end of the 2018-19 School Year.
Ms. Watson has recently gotten married (congratulations!) and will be moving to the Bellingham area to live with her new husband. She has served in Manson for three years and made a substantial impact on students and staff. Ms. Watson shared “she absolutely loves this community and the environment, and will miss everyone greatly.” We are happy for Keitlyn as a friend, mentor and colleague though we are saddened she will be leaving our community. We all wish her the very best of luck in her future endeavors.
Manson School District will be advertising the Manson Elementary Principal position and seeking applicants. In order to hire the very best candidate available we will be interviewing prospective candidates in the last week of March and hope to announce the new principal by mid-April. Our selection process will include opportunities for parents and staff members to be involved in the hiring process. We will send out the specific times and dates for parent participation opportunities in the near future.
