    At its meeting on May 3, 2018 East Maine District 63's Board of Education approved the appointment of Lewis Roberts as Gemini's new Principal. Roberts, currently Principal of D63's Mark Twain Elementary School, will step into his new position in July, with the retirement of current Principal Dr. René Carranza.

    “My time at Mark Twain has been deeply rewarding, and I’m delighted to continue working in an exceptionally vibrant and diverse school district," Roberts noted. "As Gemini transitions from junior high to middle school, I am thrilled – and truly humbled - to walk alongside a team of educators so committed to teaching excellence – and to providing all students with the opportunities they need to succeed."
