Original principal returns to Boone Meadow

Zionsville — At the Monday, April 8, Zionsville Community Schools Board of Trustees meeting, Superintendent Scott Robison announced Kris Landis as the new principal at Boone Meadow Elementary School.

Currently principal at Stonegate Elementary School, Landis was the original principal at Boone Meadow when it opened as Stonegate in 2003, Robison said. The return of Landis as principal also signals the return of the school as an elementary, after having served many other purposes since it opened.

Robison said Landis initially got the building furnished and up and running as an elementary school. Once the Stonegate facility came online, he explained, the elementary students were moved there and Landis opened that school as principal.

“In 2005 it ceased being an elementary and became a middle school,” Robison continued.

The building then served as Zionsville West Middle School until the present ZWMS building opened in 2007. At that point, Boone Meadow was closed for a time, then leased by MEDCO until 2009, when the school corporation started a preschool there. The school will open again for kindergarten through fourth-grade classes in August — again with Landis at the helm. She will continue to lead Stonegate through the current school year while staffing and furnishing Boone Meadow.

Chief Technology Officer Patti Bostwick requested the board allow her to advertise for computer equipment, much of which will go to re-outfit Boone Meadow. Her request was approved. The board also approved a request to acquire quotes for other equipment needed to re-outfit the school.

Before making his report, the superintendent introduced Union Elementary Principal Becky Coffman, who announced Union Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) teacher Sara Hunter has been selected to attend an intensive, five-day program designed to develop science-savvy citizens of the future. She said Hunter was one of 100 teachers chosen to attend the program, which is sponsored and paid for by ExxonMobil.
