The school year is drawing to a close, and the stellar careers of three Ithaca School District staff members are wrapping up as well. Collectively, these long-time staff members have been influencing our students for almost 100 years! Mary Beth Behrens, band director and instrumental music teacher is retiring after yielding her baton for 34 years. Barb Michel has served many roles in our building over her 28 years, most recently as an administrative assistant. Kris Willis has guided students in the middle school classroom for 34 years. We wish all our retirees a very happy future, and we thank them for all they have provided our students, staff, and community.
