District 113 begins search for new HPHS principal

ct-hpn-koulentes-hphs-jpg-20170303This is a significant loss for our District, as Dr. Thomas Koulentes has done a wonderful job at the helm of HPHS. The most moving and fitting tribute to his tenure was the large number of Spanish speaking students and their families who attended last Monday’s Board meeting to publicly express their appreciation for his effort and dedication towards making them feel safe and welcome in the building and in our community. To those folks, Dr. Tom was a GIANT in so many ways, and his shoes will not be easily filled.

We should all take a page from Dr. Tom, and do our part to see that the diversity in our schools and community is truly celebrated.  Best of luck Dr. Tom, and thank you for your service to our kids and community.   You will always be a GIANT.
