The Port Washington-Saukville School Board on Monday approved the retirement requests of several employees, including longtime Thomas Jefferson Middle School Assistant Principal Liz Ferger.
Ferger, who will retire at the end of the school year, has been the second in command at the middle school for 20 years.
In her role as assistant principal of the 800-student school, Ferger has served as athletic director and extracurricular program coordinator, has overseen the district’s summer school program and organized and chaperoned the annual eighth grade trip to Washington, D.C.
Ferger worked all but a year of her career at the school with Arlan Galarowicz, who retired as principal at the end of the 2015-16 school year. Steve Sukawaty was hired to replace him.
The board also approved the retirements of Janet Trzecinski, office manager and secretary to the principal at Port Washington High School; math teacher Maureen Jajtner and Spanish teacher Catherine DeMerit, both of whom work at the high school; and fifth-grade teacher Beth Breuer.
All retirements are effective at the end of the school year.
