I'd also like to take a moment to recognize a member of our District staff who is leaving us to begin her retirement.  Congratulations to Debbie Danner, who retires on December 6.  Before coming to work at the school district, Debbie worked as a secretary at Union National Bank and SERVISTAR Corporation, she was self-employed as a Home Interiors and Gift Displayer and then an administrative assistant with a nursing center and Armco. 

Debbie began her employment with the school district on October 21, 1999 as a secretary at Knoch High School.   She moved to the middle school in April of 2001 where she stayed until 2014 when she was transferred back to the high school to finish her career there.  Best wishes, Debbie!

Wishing you happiness this holiday season and throughout the coming year.
