With the transition of the two half day pre-K programs to two full day Junior Kindergartens, Mrs. Harris will be moving from Kindergarten to Junior Kindergarten.  Mrs. Barry will also move to the Junior Kindergarten classroom as the Instructional Assistant.  Ms. Lamphere will be leaving Saint Mary’s to devote additional time to her collegiate studies.

Saint Mary’s has advertised for applications to fill these positions.  A new full  time teacher will be sought for the Kindergarten classroom vacated by Mrs. Harris.  Two instructional assistant positions will be filled as well – one in the Kindergarten classroom, and one for the AM pre-school classroom.  Mrs. Heishman will lead the pre-school program in the morning, and continue her day in the Junior Kindergarten program.

Saint Mary’s is indeed fortunate to have a very strong team in place for the 2016-2017 transition to the new Junior Kindergarten program, with both classrooms lead by experienced Saint Mary’s teachers and staff.
