Verosky to be principal at planned K-3 Riverton school
Mar 7, 2014 - By Alejandra Silva, Staff Writer
Aspen Park Elementary School Andrea Verosky has been named the new principal for the new K-3 school expected to be built at 1200 W. Monroe Ave. in Riverton in time for the 2016-17 school year.
Fremont County School District 25 superintendent Terry Snyder made the announcement Thursday via e-mail to district staff.
"Mrs. Verosky will be critical to developing a staffing plan, establishing a sense of belonging with students and parents, and to provide communication to the community," Snyder wrote in the e-mail.
He said the Aspen Park vacancy left by Verosky's move would be filled by Rendezvous Elementary School principal Sheryl Esposito at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.
"Both Mrs. Esposito and Mrs. Verosky love the buildings they are in and the people they work with," Snyder said. "I appreciate their courage and willingness to take on these new challenges."
Verosky said this was a "once in a lifetime experience" she is excited to take.
"Mr. Snyder and the school board have been very thoughtful in the process by creating a time line so we can best meet the needs of our students," she said, adding she felt honored at the new opportunity.
At the completion of the new school, all third-graders at Rendezvous would be moved out to the new K-3 school, Aspen Park, Jackson and Ashgrove elementary schools, leaving Rendezvous with only fourth- and fifth- graders, Snyder said.
An early selection of an administrator for the new school was made to involve the principal in the planning and transition process from the beginning.
By downsizing Rendezvous school, Snyder said the plan is to have the current assistant principal Jeffrey Sandlian become the sole administrator there to serve the two remaining grade levels.
