As the school system was about to open on Sept. 3 to begin the new school year, new teachers had a busy orientation day on Aug. 26, which began with a meet and greet breakfast provided by Doug Langer of AXA Equitable.  This was followed by an ice breaker and overview of the school system’s mentoring program and fees presented by Karen Husser, Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction.  Next was an overview of teacher handbook and crisis management plan presented by Chris Kirkby, George Washington School principal and Raul Sandoval, Eleanor Van Gelder principal.
