Changes at Seven Oak

June 6, 2022

We are excited to share a few leadership changes occurring at Seven Oak Middle School for 2022-2023.

We wish Kevin Van Zee well as he moves on to a new chapter, and we thank him for his service to our students and staff. Mike Hillman will continue forward as Principal at Seven Oak. Ryan King, the current Dean of Students, will become Assistant Principal (and continue serving as Athletic Director). Ryan’s passion for strengthening instruction and his supreme organizational skills will continue to be a powerful, positive influence at Seven Oak.

Lisa Canaday, a dynamic math teacher with LCSD since 2017, will step into the role of Dean of Students. Lisa has been a leader in myriad ways–formal and otherwise–for years, and she is well-suited and ready to support behavior systems and practices across the building.

While our primary focus now is finishing this year with strength and positivity for our Spartan students and staff, we are also optimistic about the year ahead with this new team–full of trusted, familiar faces–leading Seven Oak.
