Wishing our Retirees a Fond Farewell

Congratulations to this year's 28 retirees, who were celebrated at the June 3rd Board of Education meeting. They represent a collective 600 years of dedicated service to the students of the Chappaqua Central School District. 

“I think this is probably the most important Board meeting that we have,” said Dr. Christine Ackerman, Superintendent of Schools. “It is. areal opportunity for us to express our deep gratitude for the work our retirees have done with our students on behalf of the District.”

We wish them a fond farewell and best of luck in all of their future endeavors.

In the video below, principals share some insights and candid memories before the  retirees provide some parting thoughts and words of wisdom for any new staff joining the District.
