Dear Parents and Guardians,
At their April 20, 2016 meeting the school district’s Board of Education appointed me as the Interim Principal at the West End School for the remainder of the school year.
As the Interim Principal I will provide support not only to the students but to Mrs. Quinones and the West End staff. I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to work in your school and I will do my best to uphold the wonderful legacy of Mrs.Sobel.
The district has recently advertised and are now accepting applications for a new full time Principal for the school. It is anticipated that the new Principal will assume his/her responsibilities this summer.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
