KES Says Good Bye to Cherished Staff
Carley Mooney
By Lee Koslowski
Long time Killingworth Elementary School secretary Mary Anne Lisk retired at the end of March after 27 years of dedicated service. Mary Anne started subbing in 1988 when her daughter, Jen, was in fifth grade. She eventually signed on full time three years later when her son, Erik, was at KES. She worked part-time as a paraprofessional and secretary until the full time secretarial position opened up.

Mary Anne has seen thousands of children, and many of their children, pass through the doors of KES. To be exact, she has welcomed 2,116 students into kindergarten as they began their educational journey. She has been known to many over the years as the welcoming presence in the front office who could usually assist with any inquiries, and there were many!

She joins her husband, Ed, in retirement and has already been spotted at Central Office, Burr Elementary School and Killingworth Elementary School subbing for the district. They are very fortunate to have such a talented and caring person in their lives!

Also retiring from KES this year is Marie Hoynack. Since 1997, Marie has held various "para" positions at KES starting with Computer Lab Assistant, then Library Assistant and finally Classroom Paraprofessional. Marie has touched the lives of many children in Killingworth with her caring and loving nature and we thank her for her dedication.
