Dear Teachers, Staff, and Parents,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to share some important updates and seek your valuable input regarding the selection of the next principal for Peasley Middle School.

On Wednesday, we were informed that Ms. Cathy Balderson, who has dedicated 34 years of her life to education, with 17 of those years spent here at Gloucester County Public Schools (GCPS) has decided to retire effective June 30, 2024. We extend our deepest gratitude to her for her service and wish her all the best in her retirement.

As we embark on the search for a new principal for Peasley Middle School, your feedback is crucial in identifying the most suitable candidate. To gather insights from our entire school community, we have launched a survey accessible to teachers, staff, parents, community members, and students.

The survey is available by clicking on this URL: https://forms.office.com/r/QYfxBKntA5

Your perspectives and opinions will play a vital role in shaping the future leadership of Peasley Middle School. I urge each of you to take a few moments to complete the survey and encourage others to do the same.

Rest assured, we will keep you informed every step of the way as we progress through the selection process.

Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to the Gloucester County School Community.

Warm regards,

Dr. Vladu
Superintendent of Schools
