STAFFING UPDATES

  • Sarah Guest has made the difficult decision to accept a teaching position closer to home. Although we hate to see Ms. Guest go, we understand the decision that she has made on behalf of her family at this time and wish her nothing but the best.
  • Ms. Guest's last day with us will be November 20, 2015.
  • Julianna Cargile will be joining us as a third grade teacher on Monday, November 30.
  • Ms. Cargile's bio is attached below - I hope you will help us to give her a warm Camp Creek ES welcome.
  • Jan Wiggins will be transitioning from media clerk to instructional clerk beginning on Monday, November 30.
  • While we did not have enough points to add an additional certified staff member, we did have just enough "in the bank" to move Ms. Wiggins into her new role.
  • Ms. Wiggins will serve in a variety of capacities that will be beneficial on a school-wide level - ex. daily copying, modified paraprofessional duties (all grades), inventory, assessment, etc.
  • Taking Ms. Wiggins place will be Jill Youngblood and Traci Zimmerman in a shared part-time Media Clerk position.
