Joanne Uyeda Named Principal of the Year!Principal Joanne Uyeda was named Arlington Public Schools PRINCIPAL OF THE YEAR in 2006 and was granted The Washington Post's Distinguished Educational Leadership Award for Arlington. In an Arlington Public Schools press release, Superintendent Dr. Robert Smith notes, After her experience at Glebe Elementary School, where she succeeded in transforming the atmosphere of the school and its community, Joanne requested the challenging assignment of leading Abingdon Elementary School.

We are extremely proud of Joanne!
