ACS Principal to Retire After School Year

Mr. Michael Szpyhulsky, principal of Assumption Catholic School, (ACS), Perth Amboy, announced his retirement from the position of principal and return to the classroom of ACS, at the June 7, 2017, faculty meeting. Under his guidance ACS received accreditation from AdvancED, instituted an accelerated math program including eighth grade algebra I opportunities, and initiated usage of the Powerschool and Google Docs programs. Fr. Ivan Turyk, administrator of the Assumption Catholic Parish and School, thanked “Mr.S.”, as he is known, for the ten years he gave to ACS. Mr. S. was praised for his dedication as the role of principal requires hours beyond the school day, tackling tasks no one else wanted to do, and was often the last person out of the building after checking all the doors and turning off all the lights. Mr. S. is looking forward to once again being in a classroom on the front line of education.
