Center School will be losing its principal of two years at the end of the school year.
Abe Ammary on Wednesday announced his decision to step down effective June 30. The announcement came in a letter to parents. On Friday, Ammary said he will continue his career in education but in a way that will allow him to spend more time with his family.
“I have worked alongside an amazing family comprised of astounding students, caring staff members and supportive families,” Ammary wrote. “This experience has been one of my biggest honors and I am proud to have had this opportunity.”
He said he will miss the staff at Center School as well as its students, who he said are always excited about learning.
Superintendent of Schools Sherri Turner, principal of Center School before Ammary, said Ammary has been a good principal and will be missed. The plan is to have a new principal in place for the start school in August.
