Once a Puma, Always a Puma!
The end of this school year is bittersweet as two legendary staff members, Mr. Mike (Assistant Building Supervisor) and Mr. Kelly (Physical Education teacher), start the next chapter of their lives, retirement.
Both men have a great sense of humor, always had time for a joke and a smile, creating moments of levity during lunch, class or while waiting for a late bus at dismissal. They are well known for their skills on the basketball court as witnessed during several PTA sponsored fundraising events. What we treasure the most are the long-lasting relationships Mr. Mike and Mr. Kelly have forged with students, staff, parents and the Colin Powell Elementary School community! While it is difficult to see them leave, we know this is not goodbye, only farewell until we see each other again. Enjoy your well-deserved retirement!
