Special Announcement - New Assistant Principal

   Ms. Maria Delfini was supposed to transition into the role of APO, which led to an administrative vacancy that was filled by Ms. Fatema Mohassib. However, during the summer, Ms. Shanesha White-Bailey became the new Principal of IS 303, creating another Assistant Principal Vacancy at Cavallaro. 

   I am honored and pleased to announce that the position of Interim Acting Assistant Principal will be filled by Ms. Jacquelyn Wiederhold, effective September 30, 2022. Ms. Wiederhold has effectively served as I.S. 281's programmer and data specialist for the past 5 years,  as well as a Science Teacher for the past 15 years. During that time, she supported our teaching staff as a Peer Instructional Coach and Model Teacher through the Teacher Leadership Program, as well as a member of the School Leadership Team. Ms. Wiederhold will transition into the role of Assistant Principal, I.A., supervising Grade 8, as well as the Science and Mathematics Departments.

   We welcome Ms. Wiederhold into this new leadership role and have all the confidence in the world that the staff, students and families will truly benefit from her years here at I.S. 281, moving from teacher to programmer and data specialist, to educational leader.

Sincerely,
Ms. Bender
