Greetings, Athletics Family,
It is with mixed emotions that I write to you this evening, as I have been asked to step in and support the Northeast Elementary community as the Principal on an interim basis, and have accepted. I will continue to work with our amazing program in some capacity, because I will be returning - Ithaca Athletics is still my home.
I’m committed to all of our scholar athletes in our community, and recognize that I’m being called to be there for some of our youngest scholars. I see this as helping our entire organization, and know that there are times when we help the wider Ithaca community. I am excited to take on this role as Principal of Northeast Elementary School on an interim basis, and am also thrilled that I will return to my full time role in Athletics by the end of next year, if not sooner.
Mr. Mac Knight, who retired in 2020 having been a Physical Education Teacher, Varsity Boys Basketball Coach, and Principal of DeWitt Middle School, will be supporting more of the day-to-day operations of Ithaca Athletics. I will continue to stay connected with the program from a higher level.
Our Athletics team is strong. I’m confident that we can continue to provide remarkable experiences for our scholar athletes while we experience this transition together. Thank you for understanding, and for all of your support. I will be in touch soon!
