Mayer Announcement from Principal Konieczny

Dear Mayer Parents and Community:

 

It is hard to believe that I am finishing my 11th year as the leader of Oscar Mayer Magnet School.  As I think about how far we have come as a school community I feel extremely proud.  In 2006, we were an under enrolled school, on probation with a pre K program slotted to close the next school year.  Today we are members of a school community that not only has provided academic excellence for all students, but provides unique opportunities for children that many CPS children are not able to experience.  I have learned so much in my time here, and Mayer has had a lifelong imprint on my heart.  It is with very mixed emotions that I announce that I will be leaving Oscar Mayer by September.  I have accepted a job as the next President of Divine Savior Holy Angels, my high school alma mater.  You may know that I am originally from Milwaukee, WI.  This job provides an opportunity to move closer to my family, and lead a school that provided so much to me personally.  

 

I assure you that I am committed to making this transition as smooth as possible.  Although I will be leaving by September, my children will be attending Mayer next school year, so I will be around.  I will be working with the current school leadership, the local school council and the Network Chief to ensure that the school is in great hands while the LSC starts a formal search.  I will be working for several weeks this summer to get our budget balanced/approved, hire our needed faculty, and prepare for a wonderful 2017 – 2018 school year.  I care deeply for the Mayer community.  I am grateful for my time here, and will cherish the relationships that I have built.  Thank you all for your commitment to our students.  Mayer is the home to the top educators in the city, with fierce commitment to your children.  We have a community that is willing to do what it takes to support the work.  I am humbled to have had the opportunity to lead this school.  

 

Thank you,

 

Katie Konieczny
