CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake Elementary School District 47 has made changes to three leadership positions at Bernotas Middle School and North Elementary for the 2017-18 school year.
Steve Scarfe, principal at North Elementary for the past two years, will become the new principal at Bernotas Middle School and replaces former Principal Jeff Prickett, who accepted the role as principal at McHenry East High School in May.
Scarfe’s 2017-18 salary has not been determined, coordinator of community relations Denise Barr said. His 2016-17 salary was $102,432.
“I began my career in education as a middle school math teacher, so for me, this feels like coming home again,” Scarfe said in a news release. “My own children attend Bernotas, and I am very excited to be joining a great staff at a great school.”
The School District 47 Board also voted unanimously Monday to approve Christina Moran as the next principal of North Elementary, where she has served as assistant principal since 2014. Her salary will be $102,471 for the 2017-18 school year.
“I’m just excited to continue all the wonderful things that are happening at North and continue serving the students, staff and community,” Moran said.
Ken Hommowun will become the new assistant principal at North Elementary after two years serving as the dean of students for Old Orchard Junior High School in Skokie. He also has previous teaching experience in music at the middle school and elementary levels.
Hommowun’s salary is $74,595 for the upcoming school year.
