Welcome to our New Staff Members!


The newest members of the Madeira City School family were welcomed to the district at the annual New Staff Orientation on August 10. After coffee and bagels, the day began with an introduction and overview of the district’s goals by Superintendent Kenji Matsudo and Assistant Superintendent Dave Bergan. The new employees were then introduced to district operations by Treasurer Emily Hauser, Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent Lora Graziani, Public Relations Director Diane Nichols, and Student Services Director Jessica Hunter. After a tour of the city and schools in Madeira, the new employees were treated to lunch before returning to their individual buildings. The orientation was held courtesy of the Board of Education.
