School’s in session for three new elementary school assistant principals in the Pentucket Regional School district, Superintendent Justin Bartholomew said Monday.

In an effort to restructure the elementary schools that serve Groveland, Merrimac and West Newbury, Bartholomew decided to introduce 19-year physical education and wellness teacher Jim Day as Dr. Elmer S. Bagnall Elementary School’s first assistant principal, among others. Day most recently served as Bagnall’s school support coordinator.

Stephanie Dembro, a former third grade teacher in Melrose, is the new assistant principal at both the Dr. Frederick N. Sweetsir and Helen R. Donaghue Elementary Schools in Merrimac. Katie Provost has been named assistant principal at the Dr. John C. Page Elementary School in West Newbury. She comes to the area from Middleton, where she served as a special education coordinator.

Bartholomew is hopeful the new positions and added oversight will move his district forward. “Both administrators and teachers alike agreed that the additional support and oversight would benefit students and staff. We’re thrilled to welcome each of our new assistant principals, and I have complete confidence they will serve our district well for years to come,” he told WHAV in a statement.”

Sixteen new teachers also joined the Pentucket Regional school system this fall, the superintendent said.
