The Billings Board of Education voted to employ Ben
Abramovitz as Elementary Principal for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years. Due to contractual agreements and the time of year, Ben will be transitioning part-time immediately, beginning with the Mondays he is not under contract at Miller, as it is a 4-day school district. Mrs. Brandt will continue to care for the elementary and work with him through this transition. Ben is Mrs. Abramovitz’s eldest son and has several years of successful experience as a Principal.
Mrs. Abramovitz has officially retired, due to circumstances beyond her control. The school is planning a school-community retirement party for her at noon, on Saturday, October 22nd. We love Mrs. Abramovitz and will miss her. We would love for you to be a part of this celebration. Hotdogs, hamburgers and deserts will be served. Please join with us in letting Mrs. Abramovitz know how much we appreciate her and how much she is missed! Thank you for your patience throughout this delicate process and transition and as always thank you for your support!
If you have any questions feel free to contact Mrs. Brandt at (417) 744-2623.
