Meanwhile, on Thursday night, MBUSD named Luke Olesiuk as the new vice principal of MBMS. He replaces the departing Kerry Aguero.
Olesiuk currently serves as assistant principal at Center Street Elementary School in the El Segundo Unified School District. Previously, he served as principal at Redondo Beach Education Foundation Summer Academy, as a Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) at Adams Middle School in Redondo Beach, and as the math department chair at El Segundo Middle School.
"The new leadership team at MBMS is looking forward to continuing their
commitment to maximizing student achievement and supporting student and
staff growth and development," said Bowes in a message to parents.
In addition to those changes at MBMS, MBUSD has had multiple leadership changes in the past year. Those changes include a new superintendent (Bowes), new Mira Costa High School principal (Karina Gerger), and new principals at Grand View Elementary (Tara Grings) and Pennekamp Elementary (Sharon Witzansky).
