Art Teacher Interviews

We will be doing interviews for the Art Position this Tuesday and Wednesday. The following staff will be joining me on the interview team: Judy Plaster, Karen Buser, and Nicole Kikkert. We will keep you posted on our progress.

Linda Foote

Linda Foote will be out on medical leave from April 26 until the end of the school year. We will be getting a sub for her to continue on with the intervention groups that she currently has. We are already in the process of filling this long-term sub position and have a couple of wonderful candidates. We will let you know who the sub will be as soon as we have that confirmed.

Staff Change

Unfortunately, our time with para Kathleen Dart will be shorter than anticipated. Parkview had a para resign, and therefore has an opening. Kathleen will return to her position at Parkview on April 21. Thorson will be hiring to fill this vacancy. The position has been posted. We will keep you updated on our progress. We thank Kathleen for jumping into the position at Thorson. We have enjoyed having her and wish her the best back at Parkview!

Spotlight of the Week

Front Entrance Gets an Upgrade!

As you hopefully noticed, we have brand new doors for our front entrance. The old doors were in bad shape, and a couple would not even shut. A huge thanks goes out to John Koster for making this happen for Thorson. The new doors look wonderful...and they work!
