Narragansett Elementary School names new principal

Assistant Principal Erin Eppler will serve as the new principal at Narragansett Elementary School beginning July 1.


Eppler moves up to her new position from two years as assistant principal at Narragansett, where she helped lead her school community through a global pandemic, a press release from the school district said.

Before joining Narragansett, Eppler taught at Village Elementary School in Gorham. Before the local school district hired her in 2015, Eppler lived and worked as a teacher and academic coach in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

Eppler succeeds Cynthia Remick, who resigned.

“Erin demonstrates extraordinary leadership. Her work ethic, passion, tireless commitment to excellence and continued student achievement results are evident in her work,” the press release said. “She is committed to building a strong school community that creates an environment where all thrive.”
