Lansfeldt to lead Brookview Elementary School
Malinda Lansfeldt, who has served as interim superintendent for the past two years, will be moving into a new role as principal of Brookview Elementary School over the summer. As one of the district’s most veteran administrators, she’s served a variety of leadership roles in her nearly 15 year tenure. In addition to district-level positions, she’s previously been the principal of 5 district elementary schools including Lily Lake, Andersen, Withrow, Marine and Afton-Lakeland.
Hiring is underway for both a principal and an assistant principal to lead Stillwater Middle School beginning in the fall. More information will be shared in the coming weeks.
