email from the school board: On June 6, the district granted tenure to 22 teachers, in a ceremony marked by both laughter and tears. Our newly tenured teachers' families joined in a celebration of their achievement, as well as their commitment to our district. Remarkably, some of our new teachers had been students of Mr. Lamassa and Ms. Urban, who served as their inspiration for careers in education. It is abundantly clear that our district has not only a commitment to excellence, but also a tradition of excellence. We look forward to what our new teachers, schooled in this tradition, will accomplish.
