Watervliet City Schools welcomed nearly a dozen new faculty and staff members during staff orientation on Monday, August 30.
Our newest educators began their busy day with remarks from Assistant Superintendent Don Stevens, followed by an opportunity to meet their mentors. Next the new faculty and staff members boarded a school bus for a tour of the city. When they returned, Superintendent Dr. Lori Caplan shared some words of advice before administering the oath to new teachers and staff. Then it was on to building level meetings with principals and lunch courtesy of the Watervliet Teachers Association.
