Anthony Salvatore's career as an educator is coming to a close.

An educator for 35 years who has been an administrator in Newtown Public Schools for the past 15, Salvatore has announced his retirement.

He was the assistant principal at Sandy Hook School up until the second half of 2012, when he moved over to Newtown Middle School to fill a vacancy.

NMS Principal Thomas R. Einhorn informed the school community of the news in an email Thursday.

"Dr. Salvatore has done much for our school community," Einhorn wrote. "He has been an advocate for students, staff and parents. He has dedicated his professional life to making a difference in others’ lives. We appreciate his work and wish him well in all of his future endeavors as he will not be returning to our school this spring as previously planned."

Dr. John Smith, who has been with NMS since December, has agreed to stay on board for the remainder of the school year as Interim Assistant Principal, according to Einhorn. 

"We are very fortunate to have someone of Dr. Smith’s experience continue to assist us with the duties of a middle school administrator," Einhorn wrote.

Having worked with him, and being on many committees with him, I can tell you Newtown is losing a generous heart. Thank you for your countless hours of hard work and dedication to our students and staff.
