Parents/Guardians of Mapleton Students:
As many of you are already aware, Mr. Barrier has been named the new Director of Law Enforcement for Montgomery County Schools. While this is clearly an excellent choice, it has left a very important part of the Mapleton leadership team in need of a replacement for the next several months.
After much consideration, I have chosen Mr. Tom Orme, retired elementary teacher, to fill the position of SAM at Mapleton Elementary. Our SBDM Council was also in agreement with this decision, and the staff has overwhelmingly expressed their support for Mr. Orme in this capacity.
Mr. Orme has accepted this opportunity with much excitement and is looking forward to the new challenge. We know the students will miss Mr. Barrier, but he will still maintain contact with the students through his responsibilities and duties as our Director of Law Enforcement.
I hope you will join us in our support of these changes as we come closer to the end of another successful school year at Mapleton!
Stephanie Harris, Principal
