FAIRFIELD — It wasn’t just that Principal Cheryl Jones shares a surname with the elementary school she runs, though her first- and second-graders find the coincidence amusing. She was curious about K.I. Jones and found parents and students were, too. So she decided to do something about that.
“The community is very traditional and interested in their roots,” said Jones, who is not related to K.I. Jones. “I thought I would honor that.”
