We have had multiple discussions with Sara about the parking lot. We are waiting for the students passes to be straightened out and our hopes are we will get some spaces back.

We have an e-board meeting Tuesday Sept. 25th in Aimee’s room. if you want to address the e-board on an issue please come right after school.

We will be planning an ARTA meeting for some time in October as our first meeting was squashed due to the weather and central office planning.

Retirement Party

( A message from Diane DeSantis)

Dear ARTA members:

Thank you very much for the wonderful turnout in the library yesterday!  I was surprised that so many people were there as well as the retirees who turned out!

Thank you for the beautiful jewelry, and of course the RV guide book, my husband couldn’t put it down last night!
I will continue to remember each and every one of you fondly, you are what makes Algonquin the great place it is!
I am looking forward to retirement, yet I have a heavy heart, knowing that my time at Algonquin is coming to an end!
I hope you continue to grow and make this school even better than it is!
Thanks to all of you!

Love to all!

Diane DeSantis
