Wishing Diana Goldstein, Karen Spencer, Laura Arce, Kim Rodden, and Carol Tedeschi a Happy District Office Administrative Assistants Day! They do amazing work for our School District and are greatly appreciated! I also want to wish our Building Admin Assistants from Lakeview (Jennifer Lechner and Maria Gannon), Prairieview (Deb Whitt and Kathi Tannhauser), and Ide (Cindy Cronin and Anna Regan) a wonderful Administrative Assistants Day! Without these dedicated and skilled professionals, our schools and district would not be same. You are appreciated!
