Dear Families,

I want to start by thanking all those that helped the School Club to provide the staff with an AMAZING staff appreciation week.   We really appreciate all the time and effort that was put into providing the staff with delicious food and sweet gifts.

I’m excited to announce that we have hired Mr. Rick’s replacement.   Chris Rush (Mr. Chris) will be taking over as of June 5th.  Chris lives here in Mason, has a child in preschool and a senior at Milford High School.  He will be here over the next few weeks shadowing Rick so that the transition will go as smooth as possible.  We are very excited for Mr. Chris to join the team.

We have also hired a preschool teacher for next year.  Larissa Terrill will be starting as of July 1st.    Larissa graduated from Merrimack College two years ago and has been working in Hudson as a para-educator and in Windham at Kiddie Academy as a site director.   Larissa also lives in Mason and we know she will be the perfect addition to the preschool.   Larissa will be at Step Up Day so that next year’s parents and students will get a chance to meet her.   We will be interviewing for the music teacher position over the next few weeks and I will let you know once we hire someone for that position.
