Draper Schools To Have New Leadership

Two Draper schools will have new principals effective July 1.

Oak Hollow Elementary will be under the direction of Julie Mootz, who currently is principal at Brookwood Elementary in Sandy; and Mary Anderson will serve as Draper Park Middle School principal. Anderson has been Union Middle School’s principal for the past 11 years.

“Draper Park Middle School is one of the highest performing schools in Canyons School District and in Utah, so I’m thrilled to be going there,” Anderson said. “The staff is wonderful and there are great teachers and I’m planning to get entrenched in the culture and climate of the school and community.”

Anderson said that she plans to meet with the Parent-Teacher-Student Association, School Community Council and Building Leadership Team as she makes the transition from Union. Prior to leading at Union Middle, she has been a teacher at Alta High School and worked in administration at Alta, Riverton High and Hillcrest High.

Even though Draper Park at 1,500 students is nearly double the size of Union, Anderson is familiar with the Vikings. 

“Both of my sons went to the school when it was Crescent View,” she said. “And I’ve worked with (assistant principal) Dave Barrett. There are great things going on at the school.”

One thing Anderson would like to do this summer is to dabble in her talent of making stained glass to create a Viking ship for her office window.

Anderson will replace Greg Leavitt, who has been reassigned to Hillcrest High after the retirement announcement of Principal Sue Malone.

Also leaving Draper Park Middle School will be Assistant Principal Kerry Schroeppel, who will become an administrator at Midvale Middle.

Mootz will be trading leadership posts with current Oak Hollow Principal Corrie Barrett, who has served as the school’s principal since 2012.
