Last Day at Heights

My last day at Madison Heights will be June 22. My work at Madison Heights has been among the most fulfilling in my career. Working together with the teachers and our community to build a strong Spanish Immersion Program and to broaden the impact of the REACH Program have been very proud accomplishments in my career. I will always cherish the strong relationships built with teachers, students and parents and I know this community will work with the new principal to make Heights an even greater school for all students. I will still be in working in the district at Madison Park so my email does not change (pgossett@madisoned.org). Please don't hesitate to reach out should you ever need me. I look forward to hearing all of the great things your child will accomplish as they continue to learn and grow.
