District hires new principal for Bellevue

Former WRHS student takes over at elementary school

    The Blaine County School District announced Monday that it has hired former Wood River High School student Aaron Molyneux as the new principal for Bellevue Elementary School.
    Molyneux, a 1998 WRHS graduate and a former Wolverine softball player, replaces longtime Bellevue principal Angie Martinez, who was selected earlier this summer as the district’s new director of curriculum.
    The School District reported in a news release that Molyneux has a bachelor’s degree of science in special education from Utah State University and a master’s degree in education, curriculum and instruction from Lesley University in Massachusetts.
    The district reported that Molyneux was selected by a hiring committee composed of administrators, Bellevue elementary staff and Bellevue parents. Her selection was approved by the district board of trustees at its regular monthly meeting on July 16.
    “Being able to hire someone of Aaron’s quality and energy is always fortunate,” stated Superintendent Lonnie Barber. “Being able to hire a Wood River graduate who has come home to the valley is even more fortunate for our schools. We know that Aaron, along with the dedicated staff at Bellevue will lead the school to the next level of excellence and we couldn’t be more pleased.”
    Molyneux has previously taught special education at Wood River Middle School. Most recently, she served as a teaching and learning facilitator at the Academy of Arts and Academics in Springfield, Ore.
    “I am excited to return to the community that has been such an important part of my childhood and life,” Molyneux said. “I’m looking forward to working with Bellevue elementary staff to continue building and growing the great programs that serve the students and families of this great district.”
