  • Good morning TE - I’m here today to share some news with you.  I have submitted my letter of intent to retire as principal of this school, effective June 30th.  I have been in South Windsor for 34 years in the capacity of teacher and administrator and have enjoyed my journey over the years.  I am telling you this today because I shared this news with parents at my PTO meeting last night and I will share in a school message today, but I wanted to be sure that you heard this from me.  I love you all and you are the biggest part of my work that I will miss – but it’s time for me to explore other interests and……I’m here for the rest of this school year. As always, work hard, do your best and ALWAYS STRIVE FOR FIVE plus one!
