From The Principal

Greetings and welcome to St. Margaret's Elementary School!  Here at St. Margaret's we place an emphasis on educating the whole child; mind, heart and spirit.  Children will be challenged academically, taught empathy through service learning and be filled with the Holy Spirit through active participation in the liturgy.  

I retired in January 2016 after 16 years as Principal at Parish Elementary School and then Altmar-Parish-Williamstown (APW) Elementary School in the Altmar-Parish-Williamstown School District.  During my career I also served as Assistant Principal at Ray Middle School (Baldwinsville), Central Square Middle School and Solvay High School.  Upon retiring, I worked as a consultant for Oswego County BOCES, was an Adjunct Professor at LeMoyne College and worked as Interim Principal for school districts.  It was while I was serving as Interim Principal at Otselic Valley Central School that I realized just how much I missed being around teaching and learning so when I saw the posting for Principal at St. Margaret's School I applied.

I live in Marcellus with my wife Kim, and sons Max and Jack.  I serve on the Marcellus School Board and am a lector at St. Francis Xavier in Marcellus.  In my spare time I enjoy gardening, running and traveling.

I invite you to stop in and visit our school.  You will not be disappointed.


May God Bless,

Michael McAuliff
