Advocating for Our Students: October 24, 2013
"Whether an employee works in the area of office support, is a teacher, administrator, custodian, groundsman, food service worker, or a lunch or security monitor, I believe we are here in Pelham for one reason only - and that is to support, promote, and deliver an instructional program of excellence.
