New Salem Elementary Principal, Mr. Shick, Retires

Congratulations on your retirement, Mr. Shick

As many of you are aware, effective Friday, April 2nd, I will be retiring as the Principal at New Salem Elementary School. It is difficult to put my feelings into words, as this school has been such an important part of my life for the past 13 years. I am very excited to explore the world of retirement. While I may not be there in the physical sense, please know that my heart will always be with this amazing learning community. I have been truly blessed, and it has been an absolute privilege, to be a member of the Spring Grove Area School District.

It is with great pleasure that I announce Mr. Seelye as the incoming Principal at New Salem. He is not only a great friend, but an amazing Principal, advocate for student success, and a long-time Principal coming to us from Spring Grove Intermediate School. Mr. Seelye has been visiting our staff and students consistently throughout this school year to support a smooth transition to this new role. 

Mr. Shick
