Jamie Hollinger, Principal
I work collaboratively with staff and parents to help prepare students for meaningful participation in society. Safety is a top priority at Waterville School and we work diligently to provide a safe and caring environment to encourage academic, social, and emotional growth of students. I am responsible for implementing district and building policies as well communicating district expectations to staff and parents. As the instructional leader, I ensure the state academic content standards are implemented daily in all classrooms. Coordination of professional development activities, in conjunction with the building School Improvement Team, takes place on an on-going basis to promote professionalism and collegial discourse. Creating the building schedule, evaluating staff, and coordinating district and state tests for the building occurs during the school year.
Lori Williams, Dean of Students
As the Dean of Students, I work hand in hand with the students, parents, and staff. It is my responsibility to promote and enforce our three student goals of be respectful, responsible and safe. As such, I may be found at school assemblies, in classrooms presenting lessons, on the playground, in the cafeteria or on the telephone with parents. Another responsibility is to assist the teachers in providing technology education to our students by providing lessons based on our district technology goals. I assist Dr. Hollinger with preparing and administering the various tests our students take throughout the school year. The best part of my job is the amount of time I get to spend with students in nearly every setting within the building.
