Chippewa Valley Says Goodbye to Longtime Staff Members
The school board recognized outstanding staff members for their dedication to the district.
The normally quiet room of the Chippewa Valley school board meeting was a little different Monday night, when more than two dozen spectators packed inside to say goodbye to some beloved staff members.
With not an open seat in sight, friends and family watched as four Chippewa Valley Schools staff members officially announced their retirements and thanked the district they’ve come to know and love over the years.
Staff leaving include Christine Robershaw, a 26-year principal and teacher of the district whose most noticeable achievement is helping to start Shawnee Elementary School; Kathleen Wieczorek, who has been with the district for 22 years as a playground monitor, elementary clerk and library clerk; Michael Green, a district bus driver since 2002; and Edward Streling, who will end his six-year tenure as a bus driver.
There were hugs, tears and well wishes from the school board members as well as those present. The farewells were moved to a higher priority on the agenda for the evening.
