Headmaster’s Notes

2019-2020 Faculty/Staff Updates

Today, we welcomed our faculty back from their summer vacations and kicked off a great week of workshops as we prepare for the new school year. Before our new and current families step onto campus next week, I’d like to introduce some new faculty members who will be joining us this year, and share some exciting news about some of our veteran members who will be taking on new roles.

Let’s begin with our new faculty and staff:

  • Miss Katie Bjorgaard, Second Grade Teacher
  • Miss Emma Crane, MS/US Choir Teacher, NET Ministry Coordinator
  • Mrs. Gladys Estoista, Business Manager
  • Mr. Michael Gerads, US Math Teacher
  • Mrs. Adrienne Johnson, Kindergarten and First Grade Music Teacher
  • Mrs. Felicia Villafan, Fourth and Fifth Grade Technology Teacher

We are excited to welcome these new faces who are bringing talent, faith, and passion to their new roles at PA!

And now, allow me to reintroduce our veteran members who will be taking on new or adjusted roles this year:

  • Mrs. Amy Hohenecker, Fourth Grade Teacher
  • Fr. Michael McClellan, Chaplain, Middle School Religion and Latin Teacher
  • Mr. Daren Messmore, Athletic Director
  • Mrs. Hannah Wegner, MS History Teacher

With faculty and staff back on campus, all we need now to begin the new school year is you! May your families enjoy these last glorious days of summer together, and know that we look forward to welcoming you back home soon.
