Summer Staffing Update

July 16, 2014

Welcome New Staff to Crestview and Nuevas Fronteras!

We have been BUSY in the CES/NFSI office putting all of the pieces in place to be ready for September! Summer Campus is up and running fabulously, and the building engineers are cleaning rooms at an amazing pace! While it is a little too soon to be sending out all of the back-to-school details (eek!) I did want to keep you all in the loop about the new educators joining our team!

Want to add something to this staff update?

The staff update will typically come out on via email on Thursday or Friday each week. If you have an item that you would like to include in this bulletin, please email it to Tina by Wednesday noon, and we’ll do our best to add it to the bulletin. Let’s work together to use this bulletin as our primary method for making all-school announcements, and hopefully by distributing information in one central way, we can decrease the number of emails that we all receive.
