Message from Christine

christine miltonDear Parents,

Many of you have heard by now that I am retiring at the end of the summer.  I cherish my five years at AmPark.  Serving you and your wonderful children has been an honor.  I couldn’t have chosen a better place to spend my final years as an administrator.

It won’t be good-bye, because I live only 10 minutes away –

All the best,
