October 4: Meet Two of Our High School Principal Candidates


Dear SSIS Parents,

On Friday, October 4th, between 8:15 and 9:50 AM we will have the pleasure of introducing you to two HS Principal candidates that are visiting our campus. We will hold one 40 minute session with each candidate, and encourage you to attend one or both, depending on your schedule.

Sign-up can be found below, after each bio.

How Will the Sessions Work?

During these meetings, we will support parents with a list of questions that you may want to ask our HS Principal candidates, and you are also free to ask your own questions. We encourage you to sign-up below so that we know how many parents to expect.

At the end of the sessions, you will be able to submit your feedback on each candidate through a survey.
