Announcing Our Interim Rolling Green Elementary Principal

Rolling Green Elementary Principal, Julia Taylor, recently announced her retirement after having been in education for 43 years, of which 29 were here in Urbandale. Mrs. Taylor has been an advocate for children and families, a motivational leader for teachers and staff, and a professional colleague who upholds the highest integrity. While we are sad to say goodbye to Mrs. Taylor, we cannot sufficiently express our gratitude for the countless ways she has contributed to our District. We wish Mrs. Taylor the best as she begins her retirement and we thank her for being a remarkable leader.
