Town Hall – Preschool

This was a smaller town hall on August 27th to introduce our new preschool teachers, Allie Baber and Tasha Boldon, as well as discuss in-person instruction for preschool students. Also in attendance: Principal Bernadette O’Leary, Vice Principal Paul Kelley, Development Director Jonna Skokan, Parent Association Co-Chairs Tricia Kane-Yi and Allan Quiaoit, and teachers and staff members Vanessa Castillo, Roisin Halley, and Rachelle Overby.

Tricia Kane-Yi and Allan Quiaoit, PA Co-Chairs
