Last night the School Board enthusiastically endorsed the Superintendent's choice of Ms. Janice Koslowski as the next principal of Potomac Falls High School. Ms. Koslowski is currently the principal of Eagle Ridge Middle School. Prior to holding that post, she was Assistant Principal at PFHS. Ms. Koslowski remains principal at Eagle Ridge MS until her successor to that post is named, which will be after the start of school. Current PFHS Principal David Spage will remain as principal until then.
Ms. Koslowski was strongly recommended to the Superintendent by a panel of teachers, administrators, and a PFHS parent.
Personally, I'm thrilled at the selection. I recently expressed my dismay at the loss of PFHS administrators to more senior LCPS positions, potentially leaving the school with a lack of institutional knowledge. Bringing back a well-regarded former PFHS AP who now has successful experience as a LCPS secondary school principal sets my mind at ease as a PFHS parent as well as a Board member.
As I said to Ms. Koslowski last night, I am completely confident that she is well qualified to supervise the education of my children. That is not a statement that I make lightly. I know that my fellow PFHS parents will feel the same. I look forward to working with her.
