Dear families and community,

I am thrilled to announce Michelle Schaefle as our new principal’s secretary in the front office. She replaces Kristy Pearson-Denning, who worked her final day with PPS on June 21.

Michelle has been a Sunnyside parent for many, many years (her youngest just graduated with our 8th grade class), and she was also a part-time administrative assistant here at Sunnyside a few years ago. Most recently, she has been the principal’s secretary at Sabin school, and will be joining us in August as she resumes the same position here at Sunnyside.

As many of you probably know by now, this is a unique school and it takes a talented, special, and amazing person to run the office. Truthfully, the principal’s secretary runs the school! Michelle is the perfect person for this position, and I, personally, couldn’t ask for a better fit as Sunnyside makes a big transition in this important role.

I hope you’re all enjoying a restful summer so far–please come say hello and welcome Michelle once the office is back open, August 10.
