Principal named for new Maltby-area school

The Northshore School District has named Cathi Davis as principal of Elementary No. 21, a school that is under construction and is expected to serve 500 students starting in the fall of 2020.

Davis is co-principal at Kokanee Elementary, also in the Northshore district. With Davis’ move, Kokanee co-principal Joel Fagundes will assume the role of principal.

Elementary No. 21 was approved by voters in the 2018 election to help ease the crowding on the district’s north end. The site on Maltby Road, close to Little Bear Creek Road, is slated to become a shared campus with a new middle school, pending voter approval of a future bond.
