Former district office employee Pola-Michelle Alas has begun working the new principal’s secretary,  replacing Susan Dini, who is retiring.

Dini has been training Alas in recent weeks. Alas explained that, sitting at the front of the office, she is  the “greeter” of the students, parents and staff who come in and processes a lot of the orders for school’s supplies and books. She also provides administrative support for principal Paul Robinson, staff, students and parents.

Although she might be a new face to students and parents, Alas is far from new to the district.

Alas has worked at the district office for the last 15 years, where she was an administrative assistant in the business office. However, her position was eliminated, leading her to apply for the open position of principal’s secretary.

Alas explained that she is already impressed with the spirit of the school that she saw at the first rally of the year and she believes that there is much more to see from the students and staff.

“I’m very excited to be working here. There is so much positive energy with the students,” Alas said. “[I am] looking forward to have a connection with the students and staff.”
