With the new academic year just around the corner, students returning to the Maquoketa Community School District and Sacred Heart School will see new faces in some key places. That includes new principals at Cardinal Elementary, Maquoketa Middle School and Sacred Heart, as well as a new assistant high school principal, middle school dean of students, director of instruction and student services, and transportation and support services director.

District Superintendent Tara Notz, who recently stepped into that role, said she excited for the expertise and energy the incoming administrators bring to students and staff.
