FORKS — Lisa Navarro, principal of Forks Elementary School, will officially bid the school goodbye Sunday.

Navarro, who has served as principal at the 480-student elementary school since 2009, has been hired to teach in Prescott, Ariz., a city with a population of about 40,000.

“Lisa has done a great job of supporting the teachers, getting them ready for common core and building teams in the schools,” said Superintendent Diana Reaume.

“We're going to miss Lisa and her energy,” she said.

Navarro previously was a teacher in Port Angeles and principal at Sedro-Woolley Elementary School in Sedro-Woolley.

Four candidates have been found to take the position of principal, and one is expected to be in place by the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, Reaume said.

“Lisa has left the staff in a good spot, no matter who walks in the door,” she said.
