The Fayetteville-Manlius Board of Education approved hiring Eileen Lux as the next Fayetteville Elementary School principal, effective July 1.
Lux is currently assistant principal at F-M’s Eagle Hill Middle School, a position she has held since 2008. Prior to that, she taught both third and fourth grade for 15 years, from 1993 to 2008, at Jamesville Elementary School in the Jamesville-DeWitt Central School District.
The board approved hiring Mrs. Lux at its April 2 meeting.
“I’m so very honored and thrilled to have been chosen as the next Fayetteville Elementary School principal,” said Lux. “Leaving Eagle Hill will be bittersweet, but elementary school has always been my passion and where I knew I’d end up.”
Over the coming weeks, Mrs. Lux will work closely with current Fayetteville Elementary Principal Nancy Smith, who is retiring as of July 1, to develop a transition plan that will include meeting with faculty, attending various committee meetings and meeting with the Home and School Association.
