I’ve never been good at good-byes.  Very few people are.  Good-byes are hard.  Good-byes are closings.  They’re ways of saying “the end.”  Good-byes are both ways of saying “the end” and ways of starting a new story.  Good-byes are rough, but there’s no way around them–at some point or another in our lives we must endure a farewell.  a farewell to arms, to innocence, to love, to fear, and most prominently–farewells to people.  We are social animals drawn together through circumstance and chemistry, and when we part it is…Distasteful.

We here at Centaurus must say some words to those that are leaving us.  To our senior we must bid adieu, and to some of our staff we say good-bye to as well.

Firstly, we must part with our beloved principal Rhonda Haniford.  She’s been an essential part of our community for years, and has helped many of us path our ways through our lives.  she will be sorely missed.

The  librarian Karma Grimm is leaving us as well.  After years of service to us here at CHS she is moving on to the next chapter of her life.  Karma has been a source of knowledge and help, and the library won’t be the same without her.

Esteemed teacher Susie Mitzelfeld is leaving us as well.  A strong leader in the CHS community, Mitzelfeld has been an IB coordinator for years, and she has helped many students in Centaurus to discover who they want to be.  The school won’t be the same without her

Speech pathologist Sylvia Kunnemann is parting as well.  Kunnemann has been an essential part in a difficult field of business–public education.  And, we can do nothing but thank her for her service and being a part of our family.

Finally, staff member Ron Buffo is retiring.  Buffo has worked hard for us here at CHS as all the staff members do.  His hard work has been crucial to the workings of the CHS machine, and he will be missed.

Along with these to retire, there are others that have gone on to brighter things.  Jason Oliver is leaving us, but he will always be a part of us, and french teacher Brittany Goings is taking a leave of absence for a year to take care of her child.

Those that leave us we will dearly miss, but we hope for the best for them in all they do.
