Dear Blue Bell Families and Staff,
I hope this email/letter finds you enjoying summer and this beautiful weather.
My purpose in writing to you is to share information about plans for Blue Bell Elementary School for the 2014-15 school year.
First, I know you will join me in thanking Dr. Sanni for his outstanding service to Blue Bell Elementary School last semester. I was grateful that he was able to assist us last year while Mrs. Fagan was out. To date, Mrs. Fagan is still out on leave. Therefore, for the upcoming school year, Dr. Concetta Lupo will be the acting principal at Blue Bell Elementary School. For consistency, Dr. Lupo will be serving as principal for the entire school year. She has extensive experience as an elementary principal, most recently as the Principal of Mattison Avenue Elementary School. She has additionally served as a teacher, Reading Specialist, Staff Developer and Director of Elementary Programs. I know you will join me in welcoming her to Blue Bell Elementary School. Dr. Lupo will be available at Blue Bell Elementary School as of July 23, 2014.
My thanks to all of you as we have worked through this transition. Please continue to enjoy summer and I look forward to a great year at Blue Bell Elementary School.
Judith M. Clark
Superintendent of Schools
