Head of School Paul Stellato announced that two long-serving members of the Princeton Day School community will take on new roles this year. Third Grade teacher Margie Gibson '84, who was previously the Lower School Community Service Coordinator, will now take on the newly created role of Director of Service Learning, overseeing community service and service learning in all three divisions. Mrs. Gibson will oversee a committee on community service opportunities and partner with Global Studies Coordinator Maria Shepard on global service learning partnerships. Mr. Stellato noted, "Margie Gibson has sought to design a comprehensive PreK-12 program to lead us from community service to service learning: to provide a program in which experience of and with other students and, at times, in other venues was identical to that of our finest classroom experiences."
In the Admission Office, Jeanne Crowell, who has served many roles in the office, most recently as Assistant Director of Admission for grades PreK-8, has now been appointed Associate Director of Admission. In his announcement, Mr. Stellato said, "As the new Associate Director of Admission, Jeanne will continue to oversee all aspects of Lower and Middle School admissions. She will now guide the work of three of her admissions colleagues, consult with Julie Cucchi on all aspects of recruiting and enrollment management, and take a lead role in admissions and retention events."
