As we get nearer to the end of another school year, we want to acknowledge some of our staff members who will be leaving us for other opportunities next year. Last week, we announced that Mrs. Fisher and Mrs. Hersh will both be retiring at the end of this school year. We are also pleased to announce that Mrs. Rajan has been promoted to the position of Vice Principal at Beckett Farms P.S. for September. Mrs. Rajan has been an outstanding advocate for students in her role as Special Education Resource Teacher (SERT). We thank her for all of her care and dedication and wish her all the best in her new role. Mrs. Keslassy will be taking over the SERT position at Wilshire next year; she and Mrs. Rajan have already been collaborating to ensure a smooth transition for our students with special education needs next year.
We also want to announce that Ms. Tan will be leaving Wilshire at the end of this school year for a new position at Woodbridge P.S. Ms. Tan has been a dedicated teacher and coach for many years at Wilshire, promoting the importance of active and healthy living. We wish her good luck at her new school.
We must also say goodbye to our Office Assistant, Mrs. Kakish. Mrs. Kakish will be moving on to H.G. Bernard P.S. in September. She has been an invaluable member of the office team for the past two years and a great help to parents and students alike. We will all miss her presence in the office.
Finally, we will also be saying goodbye to Ms. Khan, our Community Class teacher. Ms. Khan has been with us for the last two years while Ms. Racioppo was on maternity leave. We want to thank Ms. Khan for all of the care and effort she has put into working with her students. We hope to see her back at Wilshire very soon.
Thank you and good luck to all of the staff members who are leaving us at the end of June.
