Principal Search Update - April 2015
Dear SJND Community,
We wanted to give you a quick update on the principal search and request your input as well. Tim McIntire, our representative from search firm Carney Sandoe & Associates, just completed a two-day visit to learn more about our school. He spent time with our board of trustees, principal search committee, students, faculty and staff, school leaders and parents to gather feedback about the qualities and experiences we seek in our next principal.
Tim was impressed by our community’s warmth and professionalism as well as the quality and creativity of our academic and co-curricular programs. Many thanks to everyone who spoke with Tim during his visit.
We also encourage everyone to fill out our online Community Questionnaire, which, in addition to the site visit, will help to guide our search for both our interim and permanent principals.
If you wish to keep current on the principal search process, we have a dedicated principal search page on our site to keep everyone up to date on the latest news related to the search for both our interim and permanent principals. We will continue to keep you informed as the search progresses and welcome any questions you may have.
We also invite you to celebrate Simon’s tenure here at SJND and wish him well in his next appointment. Please join us on May 24 at 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm for a Community Farewell for Simon with drinks and appetizers in the SJND Quad.
Thank you for all you do on behalf of the SJND community.
Father George Alengadan, Pastor, St. Joseph Basilica
