  7. Mrs. Primeau to Retire...

Since 1992, Linda Primeau has been working in the Averill Park Central School District. Friday, March 19, marks her final day, nearly 30 years after she began as a Teacher Aide in a Kindergarten classroom at Miller Hill Elementary School.

Each year that Mrs. Primeau has been employed by the District has brought new assignments and opportunities. She has been a Teacher Clerical Aide for Grade 6 at Algonquin Middle School; a Typist assigned to the Assistant Superintendent; a Typist in the Counseling Center at AMS; a Senior Typist assigned to the School Business Administrator; and, in 2003, she became the Secretary to the Superintendent of Schools, where responsibilities also include being the Records Management Officer and District Clerk.

“Linda Primeau has been an integral part of the daily machine that runs the Averill Park Central School District behind the scenes. Our students, staff, administrators and Board of Education members have all benefited from her involvement in our District,” Superintendent Dr. James Franchini said. “Linda will be missed, however, we all wish her the best of luck in her retirement.”

Over the years, Mrs. Primeau has had the pleasure of working with superintendents Dr. Butterworth, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Moccia, Mr. Marcelle, Dr. Hoffman, and currently Dr. Franchini.

“I have many fond memories throughout my years at AP that I will cherish. We have amazing students and they remind us of our mission,” Mrs. Primeau said. “I will miss the friends I have made over the years at Averill Park CSD.”

When she isn’t working at Averill Park, Mrs. Primeau stays busy creating fun life experiences, like being a balloon handler in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, twice! Once she was a balloon handler for Kermit the Frog and the other time for Paddington Bear.

Mrs. Primeau looks forward to spending time with her family, including a new grandson, and traveling. She is planning on going on an African safari once it is safe to travel again.
