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