We are very excited to recognize Mrs. Donna Chadwick, assistant principal of Jacksonville Commons Elementary School, as the 2020-2021 OCS Assistant Principal of the Year!
Dr. Collins, Dr. Folger and a group of district administrators joined Mrs. Chadwick's family in surprising her with the news on Tuesday, September 22.
Mrs. Chadwick has been an assistant principal for three years -- all at Jacksonville Commons Elementary. Prior to becoming an administrator, she was an elementary school teacher and a Title I Reading Specialist.
In her nomination letter, JCE Principal Deborah Hoffman said that Chadwick is a strong advocate for teachers and students, having spent countless hours finding ways to improve instruction in her school.
Hoffman also said, however, that Chadwick is not just about academics.
"She is also the master of staff morale," said Hoffman. "She brings 'the happy.' Donna's happy-go-lucky personality is consistent, and it is authentic. People -- staff, students, parents, strangers -- are drawn to her."
