Mountain should keep Katko

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

 I am greatly concerned about Principal Mike Katko’s possible termination as principal of Mountain Elementary School. I first heard about this and thought, “I don’t know the details. I should stay out of it.” Upon reflection, however, I realized I care too much about whether this man is a part of my child’s education to remain silent.

My child is in his third year in Mike Katko’s Mountain Elementary School. I have had more than one meeting with Mike, asking him to help me ensure a good fit with my child and the teacher…one that would cater to some special needs. I have met with Mike to discuss problems and victories.

Simply put, I have found this man to be the example by which all school leaders should be judged.

He has been dedicated and passionate about the school, each child and this community.  I do not know the details of the current situation, but I beg the superintendent to look at the whole picture…not just this incident. Look at the years this man has given to this school and this community. Please, if there is a doubt, give him the benefit of it.
