I held off on posting about this until I saw something official from BPS. At the previous school committee meeting, the superintendent announced changes in school principals, including moving Karen Cahill from the Mendell to the Murphy K-8. I know a lot of current and incoming Mendell parents were upset to learn of this change, but I hope that the Murphy benefits and that they find someone equally dynamic for the Mendell.
In addition, Waleska Landing will be the new principal at the John F. Kennedy elementary. Most recently, she was assistant principal of the Sarah Greenwood school in Dorchester.
