I'd like to give a shout out to the ELA department for their tenacity and determination to do what is best for students.

I appreciate Sofie Vastano's openness.

Alicia Selestino's excitement about her new class is inspiring.

Julie Rucker and TammyFern Reininger are so positive with their students.

Kudos to Anndrea Harrold for being a patient, understanding, hard-working person. She is a great instructional coach on this campus.

Kudos to Alicia Selestino and Lisa Mierkiewicz for taking on the new Applied LA classes for 6th and 7th grade. They have been positive and excited about having their own class.

Kudos to Caitlin La for becoming the new chair of the Sped Department. She has done a wonderful job for her first couple of weeks.

Kudos to Wendy Tucker for being in all the LA classes with her traveling library cart. I believe this idea is great for the kids.

Thanks to Sofie for printing out our CBA scantrons and organizing all that information for us.

Laura Terry, for being awesome at what she does (which is a TON of things at our school)!

Kerry Kasparian, for being one of the BEST office assistants I've ever met! She handles the craziness of the SPED world with amazing grace! Thank you Kerry!!!
