The principal of Elkhorn Public Schools' first middle school has been selected to lead its fourth middle school.
Mike Tomjack will continue for now as principal of Elkhorn Middle School but will put together a core team of staff and teachers in time for the opening of the new middle school in the fall of 2014. His replacement at Elkhorn Middle School will be named later.
Work has begun to prepare the site of the new school, near 178th Street and Grand Avenue. The yet-unnamed middle school will be near Elkhorn Sagewood Elementary School, which is scheduled to open in fall 2013.
Tomjack served as assistant principal at Elkhorn Middle School from 1998 to 2003. He became principal when then-Principal Kevin Riggert moved on to Elkhorn Ridge Middle School. — Julie Anderson
