It was the first day of school for Flagler students and three new principals.
Flagler Schools Superintendent Cathy Mittelstadt and Assistant Superintendent of Academic Services LaShakia Moore made the rounds on the first day of school Wednesday, Aug. 10.
"It was a wonderful first day of school," Mittelstadt said.
It was not only the first day of school for more than 13,000 students but also for three new principals in Flagler County. Flagler Palm Coast High School Principal Bobby Bossardet and Wadsworth Elementary School Principal Paul Peacock previously had been principals in the school district before moving to the district office.
New Matanzas High School Principal Kristin Bozeman also returns to a school campus after working as a district administrator. She had been the director of instructional personnel for the St. Johns County School District. Previously, Bozeman was an assistant principal at three high schools and a middle school in St. Johns County.
Bossardet takes over at his alma mater. He was the principal at Buddy Taylor Middle School before moving into leadership positions in the district. He was most recently the district's assistant superintendent of academic services.
Peacock had been the principal at Indian Trails Middle School for eight years before becoming the district's chief of operational services a year ago.
