We Will Miss You Ms. Guthrie!

It is with a heavy heart that we bid our wonderful Parent Coordinator, Mrs. Terry Guthrie, goodbye at the end of the week! Mrs. Guthrie announced her retirement during our first PTA meeting of the school year; and Friday, September 28, 2018 will be her last day at PS/IS 48.

After more than 24 amazing years serving our students, families, and school community, Mrs. Guthrie will be terribly missed by every student, parent, and staff alike. On behalf of each and every one at PS/IS 48, thank you Mrs. Guthrie for the memories, the laughs, and all you have contributed to make PS/IS 48 the special place that it is today. We will wish you a happy retirement and the best in all your future endeavors.
