    Dear Salnave Families,

    It has been a difficult decision to make, but after thirteen years as principal of Salnave, I am retiring. The years I have worked at Salnave have been a significant, positive and gratifying part of my personal and professional life. When I think of the thousands of staff, parent and student conversations, and the hundreds of professional undertakings over the years, it seems surreal to think about starting a distinctly new chapter in my life. I feel deep gratitude for the opportunity that I have had to serve you and to lead a school with an incredibly dedicated staff that provides so much opportunity for our children.

    I am so proud of the accomplishments of the staff and recognize the inspiration I felt from their success was a key factor in my fulfillment over the years as the principal of this school. Each day the children bring joy, smiles, interesting conversations and unexpected surprises. The memories of saying good morning to hundreds of children each morning, speaking to them on the HAWKS news, smiling as they give comments on my attire and listening to their stories will be in my heart forever.

    The outstanding professional work of this staff and the positive work environment will attract quality prinicipal candidates. There is no doubt that your new principal will take the school to new heights of achievement and success.

    Salnave has always been a welcoming, family community with high ambitions for their students. Thank you for your continued support over the years for our staff, our school events, the work of the PTO, and me. It has been a pleasure to dedicate myself to the staff, to you and to your children.
    Thank you for a wonderful thirteen years. I look forward to following all the adventures and successes ahead for this amazing school.



    Debbie Maurus, Ph.D.
