Dear SSIS Community,

We are excited to welcome HoS candidate Dr. Catriona Moran to School on September 11-14. During her visit, Dr. Moran will meet with students, parents, teachers, support staff, and the Administration.  The meetings provide an opportunity for you to meet with Dr. Moran and ask whatever questions you may have. It is also an opportunity for Dr. Moran to get to know our community. We hope you will participate in this important process, and share your feedback with the Search Committee.

In particular, we would like to highlight that Dr. Moran’s meeting with parents is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept 12th, at 2:00 PM at the High School MPR (4th Fl.)   We hope you will take the time to attend this meeting.
