St. Andrew Catholic School has hired Kelsey Miller to be the new principal starting July 1, 2024. Miller is replacing Michelle Sontag, who is retiring.

Sontag started as a volunteer helping Father John Linden with the planning and opening of a new school. This volunteer work turned into becoming the director of school opening and eventually the principal for the first year of school. She has worked tirelessly to create the educational and spiritual environment the community was asking for.

“When I chose to retire, I knew the right person would present him or herself at just the right time, and that is exactly what happened. Kelsey shares in the passion for St. Andrew’s mission and vision and will continue to build this community of faith,” Sontag said.

Miller has been a teacher for over a decade, most recently working as the 5/6 grade teacher at St. Andrew. “The beauty of our first year has been an amazing gift from God. Infusing His truth and goodness into all aspects of our school has been a team effort with Michelle’s steadfast leadership. I am humbled to be chosen as her replacement. I pray I can follow in her footsteps and continue to nurture the educational and spiritual growth of all our students,” Miller said.

Sontag will remain on staff as a consultant to assist Miller in whatever capacity is needed.

Along with hiring a new principal, St. Andrew’s growth going into the 2024-25 school year has them searching for new teachers and aides in various grades.
