uperintendent, Jill M. Gierasch, hosted the annual Parent Leader Breakfast “al fresco” the morning of June 8. She articulated how important the parent community is to a school district, and that the level of involvement in CSH is extraordinary. She shared that when she became Superintendent, and saw the list of parent run committees, it was a degree of volunteerism she had never quite witnessed. Not only do these parent groups support so many programs, but they seamlessly run themselves!
