Page Elementary Principal Mike Gelmi announced recently he was leaving TK Schools for a position closer to home where he would be able to spend more time with his family. Everyone can understand that. Kids grow up so fast. But his leaving the district definitely leaves some very big "princess" shoes to fill. Gelmi leaves a legacy of wacky hats, socks, wigs, and especially reading month challenges he's happily shared with students year after year.
Good morning Page Families,
I wanted to communicate with our Page Elementary families that I have accepted an elementary principal position at Central Elementary School in Grandville Public Schools for the 2019-2020 school year. It is a K-6 building with some opportunities to grow professionally and half the distance from my home near Zeeland. I am really looking forward to the opportunity but also excited to be able to be home at different times to do things like coaching my boys baseball team etc., that just doesn't work currently with the commute. The distance and family time is the biggest reason for my decision, but excited about a new opportunity to grow.
