New principal at Weaver ready to help school improve and grow

Weaver 2

M.R. Weaver Elementary held its Open House Tuesday, Aug. 16.

The school’s new principal, Micah Nicholson, is excited for the opportunity to work with the faculty and staff. While it will take some time for him to develop his game plan for the school, his immediate goals are to focus on academic achievement, community involvement and campus beautification.

Nicholson is the former P.E. coach at NSU Elementary Lab. He comes from a long line of educators. His father is currently in his 47th year of teaching, his mother in her 43rd year and his grandmother taught for 40 plus years.

Nicholson has taught in Natchitoches Parish for 10 years now. Before E-Lab, he was the head football coach at Lakeview High School.

“Weaver is a great school and there’s a lot of room for growth because I think it has so much potential,” he said.
