Mr. Chiles, principal of Hillside Elementary School in Montclair just announced that Assistant Principal, Mr. Anthony Grosso, will be leaving for a position as a principal in Bergen County:
Mr. Anthony Grosso has been approved to serve as the Principal of a K-6 elementary school in Bergen County. After 12 years serving the Hillside community, Mr. Grosso will be missed by me personally and this entire faculty and staff.
I hired Mr. Grosso as a Drama teacher for a year to replace Deborah McHugh who was on sabbatical leave that year. After observing his many talents, he was placed the following year as a 5th grade Math/Science teacher. After a few years, he served Hillside as its Science Specialist. When the Assistant Principal position opened up, after interviewing several candidates, Mr. Grosso was a no- brainer for me as he had just recently completed his Masters degree and appropriate certifications. This year starts his 4th year as an Assistant Principal at Hillside. As you can determine, Mr. Grosso is a “son of Hillside School”.
His departure and replacement will be according to the procedures and practices of the District. An exact date of departure will be forthcoming while a pursuit of his replacement is underway as of this writing. I am sure you will join me in congratulating Mr. Anthony Grosso on his new assignment as Principal.
