Being good or even great at something gives you opportunities to share your knowledge. Everyone has something to teach others, and everyone has something to learn.

Meet Principal Jeff McGowan!

Hi, Lynx families! My favorite thing about being a principal is working with staff and students. A few fun facts about me: I love the “Harry Potter” books. My favorite musician is Bruce Springsteen. If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, I would order from Ron’s Drive-In, a restaurant in the Spokane Valley.
