Hello Poet Families!

     We have two long=standing staff members that will be retiring at the end of this school year:  Barbara Dell’Aringa and Jane Lynch.  Both of these people have made a lasting impact on our school.  Teaching wasn’t Mrs. Lynch’s first career.  After working in the business world, she decided to make the switch to education.  Teaching was always in the back of her mind and she finally made a transition to education in the fall of 1997.   She taught two years at Central school before coming to Poet in 1999 where she has been ever since.  Mrs. Lynch has worked with students in the primary grades and is closing out her career in 4th grade.  She has done so much to make Poet a successful and caring environment for our students.  We wish her the best of luck and thank her for her time and dedication to our school.
     Poet opened it’s doors for the first time in the fall of 1990.  After working in the district office, Barbara Dell’Aringa was hired on as the Site Secretary in 1993.  Barbara is one of the most caring and dedicated individuals I have ever met.  She treats every student and every family as if they were her own.  She has worked with generations of families at Poet over the years and has touched the lives of everyone she has met.  She has been the heart and soul of this school for the past 25 years and it is hard to imagine Poet without her.  How do you replace a person who has left such a lasting impression and who has made such a positive impact on a school?  You don’t.  You can’t replace Barbara.  She is one of a kind and she will be greatly missed.
     I hope all of you take the time to wish both Mrs. Lynch and Mrs. Dell’Aringa a fond farewell over the next few weeks.  We wish them both the best of luck in their future!
Mr. Maslyar
