Way to go, Kane teachers!
Kane teachers received a surprise during their March 10 professional development meeting when Superintendent Langlois visited and presented the faculty and staff with a banner congratulating them for their efforts to help Kane students succeed on their MCAS tests. Shown are Nicole Whittenhagen and Christie Huther unfurling the banner, which will be hung in the school.
