NEW — 3:10 p.m. March 4, 2010

Apollo Elementary School Principal Marla Erath will be the next principal of Newcastle Elementary School.

Erath will start at Newcastle in July, and the news was announced in a letter sent to families March 3.

“This was a very difficult decision for me to make. I will miss everyone at Apollo tremendously,” Erath wrote. “However, I am following an important life lesson that we try to teach all of our students: Challenge and change are often necessary for growth and fresh perspectives.

“I believe this is not only an opportunity for both me to continue growth professionally, but for Apollo Elementary to continue to grow and develop as well.

“While I am excited for my new professional adventure in life, I will always carry my time here at Apollo in my heart.”

Erath will start her new position at Newcastle Elementary in July.

In February, Newcastle Principal Christy Otley announced she would resign from her school to take the principal position at Grand Ridge Elementary School in the Issaquah Highlands. Grand Ridge Principal Barbara Walton will retire at the end of this school year.
