MPES First Grade Welcomes a New Colleague
Casey comes to us from Meadowcreek Elementary where the principal had to reduce staffing by 3.5 points. Principal Daunoy was highly complementary of Casey, the relationship she had quickly fostered with her teammates, students, and parents. I assured Casey we will all work together to make this a smooth transition. Casey begins work at MPES on Tuesday after Labor Day.
