assistant principal Mr. James Ivory, currently the administrative assistant at North Middle School in Everett, has been hired as an assistant principal at Northshore Junior High.
   Mr. Ivory has worked in education for the past 21 years. He recently earned his principal's credential through Seattle Pacific University.

"We look forward to his bringing a fresh perspective in working with students and promoting student achievement."
   Ivory will begin his job in Northshore on July 1. He takes the place of assistant principal Gretchen Rowe, who is moving to Timbercrest Junior High. Mr. Ivory lives in Everett with his wife and children.
