PIERCETON â€” New teachers and faculty were welcomed at a reception Monday evening before the Whitko Community School Corporationâ€™s board meeting.
As the Board of Trustees heard from each school administrator, the reports from the first week of school were all positive.
â€śWe are off to a great start,â€ť said Pierceton Elementary School Principal Nathan Polston. This is Polstonâ€™s first year at PES. â€śIt was wonderful to get ready and set up for the new year. Weâ€™ve already spent some time discussing Common Core and the reading program.â€ť
Another new administrator is at South Whitley Elementary School â€” Donna Wiktorowski took the place of Bruce Hansen when he retired at the end of the 2012-13 school year.
â€śSometimes you just feel like you are in the right place at the right time,â€ť Wiktorowski said. â€śIâ€™m loving it here. I love my job and I love getting up every morning to come to work.â€ť
