A Message from Meridian School District

Dear families,

This afternoon we shared with staff that Principal Dawn Christiana has accepted a job as the new principal at Cascadia Elementary School in Ferndale School District. Mrs. Christiana will end the year with IRE and begin her new role in Ferndale in July.

Mrs. Christiana has been principal at IRE since fall 2019. Before coming to Meridian, she worked in Bellingham Public Schools for 12 years as a teacher and director of teaching and learning.

We thank Mrs. Christiana for her leadership at IRE and while we are sad to lose her, we are excited for her and wish her all the best.

We will be posting the principal opening this evening and then will have an opportunity for staff and families to share their input about what leadership qualities they want in their next principal.

James Everett
