The Appoquinimink School District is pleased to announce the appointment of Victoir “Vic” Cahoon as Alfred G. Waters Middle School’s new principal.


    The Appoquinimink School District is pleased to announce the appointment of Victoir “Vic” Cahoon as Alfred G. Waters Middle School’s new principal. A proven teacher, administrator and leader, he brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the job and will ensure that AGW continues to be one of the state’s top-performing Middle Schools.
     The district knows Cahoon as an effective high school administrator. In fact, the first half of his career was spent teaching and leading middle schoolers – a fact he’s quick to point out when asked about his new assignment.
     Vic will be moving to Alfred G. Waters permanently on Monday, Oct. 5.
     But he’s not waiting until then to get started. On Thursday, Sept. 10, he participated in a staff meeting at AGW where he greeted teachers and answered questions. Later that evening, he addressed members of the Parent Teacher Association.
    He joined Assistant Principal Laura Troxell for the Open House Event at AGW on Sept. 17, and had fun competing with students at the positive behavior support pep rally on Friday, Sept. 18.
    Cahoon is currently spending several hours a day at the school, where he meets with staff, observes classroom operations and begins the important process of goal-setting in his new position.
    Until he is at AGW full time, he has invited parents and staff to contact him with their questions and suggestions at victoir.cahoon@appo.k12.de.us.
     While Cahoon concludes his final two weeks of work at Appoquinimink High School, former Principal Claude McAllister will be assisting Troxell, the school’s assistant principal and interim leader, in day-to-day operations.
