Ready for the Challenge
The upcoming school year will bring many changes in administration within Auburn City Schools as Auburn High School welcomes a new principal in Dr. Shannon Pignato and three new assistant principals, Bo Morrissey, Caroline Raville, and Damian Sinclair.
Pignato will be bringing her 20 years of experience in education to AHS.
She has been a part of Auburn City Schools for the past nine years as an administrator; first as an assistant principal at Dean Road Elementary (2005-2011), then principal at Auburn Junior High for the past three years.
She and her team have now been selected and approved to take the helm at AHS. “The upcoming senior class is actually the students I had in 9th grade for my first year at AJHS,” Pignato said. “Which will be neat because I also had a lot of them at Dean Road, so it will be nice to have a population of students I know so well.”
Knowing the history of some of the students is a huge advantage and a head start on the job, according to Pignato.
RECONNECT is when students may visit the AHS cafeteria to pick up schedules and pay fees. The AHS RECONNECT dates are:
Tuesday, July 29, from 8:30 until 11:00 a.m. for 10th graders
Wednesday, July 30, from 8:30 until 11:00 a.m. for 11th graders
Thursday, July 31, from 8:30 until 11:00 a.m. for 12th graders
Thursday, July 31, from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. for those who miss the earlier times that week
We look forward to seeing you!
