Six Monument School staff members were highlighted in the Sept. 18 article “Several Monument School staff members return to their roots.”
After the article went to print, school officials discovered one more staff member, Rebecca Grassl, is also a Monument School graduate. She was recently hired by the school district as an instructional assistant.
Grassl graduated from Monument in 1996 and moved back to Monument in 2011 with her three children.
Before she was recently hired, Grassl volunteered at the school and was a substitute teacher in the preschool classroom and as an instructional aide.
“Monument School District is lucky to have just under 45% of our staff who are alumni of the school district,” said Superintendent/Principal Laura Thomas. “This really shows the dedication and commitment to both the community and the school.”
Other staff members who graduated from Monument School include Michele Engle, Chuck Thomas, Kristi Emerson, Teri Hamilton, Jessica Hudson and Mary Cade.
