Sorry to see Megan and Kelly leave.  I had the pleasure of teaching with them for a few years at South School before I retired and they were wonderful teachers.   Thrilled to have one of our own- Jake Carlson- as assistant principal of South.  No doubt he'll do a tremendous job.  He and Justin Bennett will make an amazing team.  Wishing everyone another fabulous year.
