After serving as principal at East Middle School since 2003, Barbara Davis has been named principal at the new pre-kindergarten center. Tammy Flaspohler is replacing Davis as principal at East Middle School.
“I am excited about being a part of this new opportunity for our district to have all of our four year-olds together in one school building entirely focused on building a foundation for learning that will last a life time,” said Barbara Davis.
