We want to thank the WITA Social Committee, led by Chairperson Karen McCarthy, for organizing another excellent End-of-Year Party. This year’s party was held at Captain Bill’s Restaurant in Bay Shore to celebrate the successes of the school year and acknowledge our colleagues who are retiring. The End-of-Year party is one of our longest traditions and invites the entire staff to gather to express thanks for the support and dedication we have shown each other this year and through some of the most challenging years we have faced. If you haven’t attended recently, the last two years have been excellent opportunities to reconnect with old friends and colleagues from other buildings.
The End of Year Party allows us to celebrate the careers of our retiring coworkers. This year we celebrated the retirement of the following colleagues:
- Dennis Adams, Science, 20 years
- Denise Campasano, Elementary, 23.5 years
- Pam Cooke, Elementary, 33 years
- Lynn Genovese, Special Ed., 24 years
- Joanne Macrelli, Business, 16 years
- Karen Nordland, Elementary, 22 years
- Larry Sciarrino, Math, 21 years
- Suzy Sciarrino, Elementary, 32 years
- Sheila Siragusa, Reading, 24 years
- Daria Solano, Elementary, 21 years
- Liz Winter, Science, 26 years
We wish them health and happiness in retirement!
