PERKINS TWP.

The new face at Furry Elementary School will actually be one some may remember.

Halley Leffler was approved as the new elementary school principal at Wednesday night's school board meeting.

Leffler, who taught special education from 1985-98 at Briar School, was most recently principal at Danbury Elementary School in Danbury Township.

She said she is excited to return to the district.

"I think this is an awesome opportunity to be a leader in the community in which I live," Leffler said. "I am very thrilled to be a part of Perkins again. I had a wonderful experience when I taught here for 13 years. I am very much looking forward to working with the staff, students and parents to maximize students' achievement."

Leffler will replace former Furry principal Ryan Coleman, who resigned in June. Coleman accepted a principal position at Keystone Elementary School.

Also at the meeting, the board approved putting a renewal levy on November's ballot.

Since it is a renewal, it will not mean any new taxes for the community; it will only continue a levy already in place.

Renewing the 2-mill permanent improvement levy would bring in $758,000 to the district for major expenses including property, technology and equipment to maintain property.

Carryover, or extra money from the permanent improvement fund, cannot go toward the district's operating fund or be used to pay salaries and other personnel expenses.
