Celebrating our admin assistants!

Posted on: April 26, 2017

Wednesday, April 26 is Administrative Professionals Day, which highlights the important role of administrative professionals in all areas of our schools. In many ways, Little Miami’s administrative professionals are the face of the district, greeting parents and students, answering the phone, keeping track of student attendance and important school records, providing comfort to a little one having a bad day and dozens of other duties.

"There is no way to adequately thank our administrative professionals for all of the important work they do on behalf of Little Miami students, parents, teachers and administrators," Superintendent Greg Power said. "We are grateful for them every day, not just on April 26."
