March Staff Spotlight
Congratulations to our March Staff Spotlight recipient Jennifer Capretta. She was awarded this for being an outstanding contributor to the success of students with disabilities.

Ms. Capretta has been with Lancaster City Schools for 17 years as an intervention specialist and has continued to go above and beyond for her students, co-workers, and the school district. Her excellent creative skills have helped her design programs that ensure success in all of her students. A few of those programs are the Special Olympics Coach, Capretta's Cafe, General Sherman Treat Trolley, partnership with Foundation Dinners, Student Banquet, and so much more.

Thank you, Ms. Capretta, for all you have done and will continue to do! She makes Lancaster City Schools a great place to be!
