The reputation Nooksack Valley Schools has on focused learning drew Jeff Demorset to apply for the position of assistant principal for Nooksack Valley High School. And his experience as a teacher and principal made him a good fit for the newly opened position.
Sarah Condreay, an 11-year teaching veteran at Sumas Elementary, will take the reigns as the new principal of Sumas next year. And she'll do so in an entirely new building, welcoming both students and the community to a fresh educational experience.
The surprised reaction from Sumas Elementary music teacher Landon Wynne upon receiving a $3,000 check from the Bellingham Symphony Orchestra to replace lost musical equipment during the fall flooding says it all: "That's awesome!"
