Lily Lake Elementary School Principal Mark Drommerhausen on Tuesday announced that he is leaving the school to help lead Stillwater Area Public Schools bond-related projects.
“It’s with mixed emotions that I am writing to tell you that I will be taking on a new assignment next year to lead efforts related to our bond projects,” Drommerhausen wrote in a message to Lily Lake families. “While I will miss working with Lily Lake students, families and staff, I am very excited about the many opportunities this new position will provide.”
Drommerhausen — as a principal on special assignment — will oversee the non-construction related changes that will happen with the passage of the bond, relating to the grade re-configurations.
That will include work on curriculum and staffing changes, planning for a new elementary school, boundary adjustments and other bond-related duties, Drommerhausen wrote in the email.
Drommerhausen will continue to serve as principal of Lily Lake throughout the month of June, and will begin his new position on July 1.
District leaders are moving forward to hire a principal for Lily Lake with the goal of having a new person in place yet this summer, Drommerhausen wrote.
Drommerhausen, a Stillwater native and graduate of Stillwater Area High School, began his teaching career in 1998 and became an elementary principal in 2006.
He’s been leading Lily Lake Elementary, his alma mater, for the past two years.
In 2014, Drommerhausen received the Minnesota Elementary School Principals Association’s Leadership Achievement Award. He recently received the Stillwater Gazette’s 2015 Readers’ Choice Award for the “Best Principal in the Area.”
