MANCHESTER, NH – Superintendent of Schools Bolgen Vargas has named Christopher MacDonald the next principal of Hallsville Elementary School. Manchester’s Board of School Committee approved MacDonald’s nomination at this week’s meeting.
MacDonald moves into his new position from Northwest Elementary School in Manchester, where he was assistant principal since 2008. His career in education also includes eight years teaching third and fourth grades in Hooksett.
“While they differ in size, Northwest and Hallsville have many similarities as neighborhood schools committed to the success of all students,” said MacDonald. “I am excited to get to know Hallsville staff, students and families and lead them in their continued efforts toward high achievement.”
“Mr. MacDonald will be a terrific asset to the Hallsville community,” Dr. Vargas said. “His leadership experience and commitment to excellence will help students reach their highest potential.”
MacDonald succeeds Bonnie Skogsholm, who retired at the end of this past school year after four years at Hallsville. He will host an ice cream social to give staff and families the opportunity to meet him before the school year begins. It will be held at Hallsville on Wednesday, August 29, from 6-7 p.m.
