Changes and Openings within our building

As you all know, Cori Valenti has pursued a new opportunity. Of course, we are sad to lose her at NS and have valued and appreciated everything she has dedicated to us and our students! Kristyn Atz will be moving into Cori's position and Cori will take time this week to train her. This means that Kristyn's 5 hour aide position is now open. Kristyn will do her best to assist with LLI and lunchtime as we look for a new candidate. Also, Zach Housholder is leaving us at the end of the month to pursue a new career as well. His position has already been posted and we are hoping to find a candidate as great as him! If you know anyone who may be interested in either positions, please see me.
