FORSYTH COUNTY — The Forsyth County school system has filled two principal positions left vacant after shifting two veteran administrators to open the district’s newest elementary and middle schools.
Jan Munroe has been appointed principal of Midway Elementary, while Pam Pajerski will move to Piney Grove Middle, effective for the 2016-17 school year.
Munroe is a 20-year veteran of the system, having served as an elementary school teacher at Matt, Sawnee and Vickery Creek. She has also served as an assistant principal at Chestatee and Coal Mountain.
She will move to the head position at Midway after having been assistant principal for the school on Atlanta Highway (Hwy. 9) in southwest Forsyth for two years.
“I am delighted and honored to accept this new position as principal and to continue the work at Midway Elementary,” Munroe said. “It is exciting to move forward surrounded by talented educators and dedicated parents.
“There is no greater profession than having the opportunity to enrich the lives of children.”
Pajerski will move to Piney Grove after leading Cumming Elementary since 2009. She also served as assistant principal at Silver City Elementary for two years.
"It is a tremendous honor to be joining the Piney Grove Middle School team. Piney Grove is a remarkable school with a fine tradition of academic excellence, community involvement, and a commitment to developing the unique talents of all students," she said.
Before joining the Forsyth system in 2007, Pajerski began her teaching career in 1988 with Newton County Schools, serving as a teacher, summer school principal, assistant principal, elementary coordinator and director of professional learning in the school district.
The two transitions were made as a result of shifting current Midway Principal Todd Smith to Brandywine Elementary and current Piney Grove Principal Terri North to DeSana Middle, both of which are slated to open this fall.
The next step will be to find a replacement for Pajerski at Cumming, officials said.
