Staff Writer

Mr. Jarrett Cook, who has been assistant principal at East Middle School for the past three years, is leaving to become principal at Jefferson Elementary.  

Interviews with candidates for the assistant principal job are scheduled to take place Friday, May 13.

Principal Mr. Bud Sexson told EMS Roundabout his expectations for the new assistant principal are pretty standard.

"He must be caring, a good communicator with the kids and must be able to do a good job of having fun with students and educating them at the same time."

Teachers will play a role in choosing Mr. Cook's replacement. Mr. Sexson said eighth grade science teacher Mr. Michael Wallace and sixth grade social studies teacher Mrs. Lisa Simmons will help him and district officials with the job interviews.
