The start of the new school year has been anything but a typical start. Mr. S. ended last year with no changes in grade assignments, and happy that all of the specials teachers would be returning. By the time school started in September, not only were there new grade assignments, a few specials teachers had also moved on to other jobs. Despite the changes, ACS is as strong as ever! Our faculty welcomed Miss Julie Salamon, teacher of grade 2, to the group at their first meeting in August. At that same meeting Mrs. Shumny of grade 7 was welcomed back home after a year away from ACS.
Shortly after the start of the year Mr. S. had to find a new physical education teacher, a new Spanish teacher, a new librarian and a new computer teacher. As God’s blessings would shine upon us again, he was successful. Teaching Spanish to the older students is alumnus, Miss Michelle Diaz, and our new physical education teacher, alumnus, Miss Ivette Sosa. We have also welcomed new computer teacher Mr. Gary Charydczak, as well as our new librarian, Mrs. Anne Keefe. One more alumnus that will be helping out this year is Miss Joan Kuchie. She will be our substitute teacher. If you see any of these new additions, be sure to make them feel at home!
