I wanted to provide you with some important personnel updates.

Unfortunately, our current Assistant Principal, Carla Cinquegrana will be gone for the remainder of the school year on medical leave. I am grateful that Hillary Niebauer will be joining us starting this week through the end of the school year to help in Carla’s absence. Hillary will begin immediately as our new Assistant Principal at Morey.

I am personally very appreciative of Instructional Superintendent Dori Claunch’s support in making this transition possible.

After spending many years at Hill Middle School as Assistant Principal, Student Advisor, Director of Instruction, and Language Arts teacher, Hillary will be sharing her expertise with us as we continue to strengthen various aspects of our school.
