Please join me in welcoming the new principal at Veneta Elementary School, Mrs. Lisa Leatham. Mrs. Leatham comes to us with a wealth of experience, K-5, right here in the FRSD where she has been a teacher in a variety of roles over the past 26 years. A Committee of 8, made up of teachers, classified staff, board members, administrators and a parent, chose Mrs. Leatham after conducting interviews from a very strong pool of applicants. We are all excited to have Mrs. Leatham on board in a new and challenging role for her. I am confident that in the months and years to come she is going to be a tremendous asset to our students and families.
