POUND RIDGE, N.Y. The Hiram Halle Memorial Library in Pound Ridge will host new interim Pound Ridge Elementary School principal Tim Gembka for a Meet the Principal Day on Thursday at 3:30 p.m.
Gembka was appointed last month on an interim basis to take the place of Peter Politi, who retired. The event is for children in grades K-2 and their parents. Gembka met earlier this month with students in grades three through five. He will read a few stories and take the opportunity to get to know the children and their families.
Its such a positive step on his part to get to know the community, said Marilyn Tinter, the librarys director. And its a good head start for the kids too.
Tinter said Gembka is the first Lewisboro Elementary principal to focus on the library and illustrate to the students its importance.
He shows how the library is actually an extension of the school and how important it is, she said.
