My name is Joshua Englund and I am so blessed to become the principal of St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic School and take this next step in leadership as a member of our school community. I feel so fortunate to have been a teacher, parent and parishioner at St. Mary’s. After thirteen years of teaching third, fourth and fifth grades and as a parent of two children who have attended our school since preschool, I am ready for the joy and challenge of leading our school as your new principal. During those years, I have worked to build the school community’s trust, participated in long held traditions, and collaborated with our community to build new cherished traditions.
I will draw on my experience as a previous Athletic Director and Vice Principal in order to smoothly and efficiently begin a new school year. I am so excited and honored to work with our accomplished team of teachers, dedicated staff and parish community. Our school will continue to provide experiences rich in the celebration of our Catholic Faith and devote itself to encouraging faith formation.
St. Mary’s will also continue to provide a rigorous and excellent academic education while ensuring student safety and creating opportunities for students to explore their athletic and creative interests. Thank you for the opportunity to serve our school as your new principal.
