Wilshire Park Elementary families,
I am writing to share with you that Wilshire Park Interim Principal Amy Kujawski, and Director of Community Services and Communications Wendy Webster, have recently encountered family emergencies that require them to be out through the end of the school year. While both Amy and Wendy will certainly return and remain in contact with us during their leave, we decided it would be helpful to provide some additional support at Wilshire Park Elementary School (WP).
Principal in Residence at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Katie Pekel, who is also a former elementary and middle school principal, will be spending the remainder of the year with the students and staff at WP. I have known Katie for years, and I am confident she will do a great job.
The University of Minnesota (U of M) has agreed to support Katie in spending this time at St. Anthony-New Brighton at no cost to the district. As a public land-grant research university, the U of M, and the Dean of the College of Education Michael Rodriguez, deeply believes in supporting K-12 education.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to Katie at 612-706-1200 or email@example.com for anything you may need!
Superintendent Dr. Renee Corneille
