This year, New Haven hired Mrs. Gretal Ehrhard for our high school secretary position. Recently, she put in her notice that she will be leaving our school for her husband’s work. She has been a huge help to our school and she will truly be missed around the halls.
Although Mrs. Ehrhard is our secretary, she has made many students feel more comfortable and she creates a fun, easy-going environment for everyone. It will be hard to find someone else with a caring personality like hers.
"[Mrs. Gretal] You have done a wonderful job this year keeping everything organized! Also you are really easy to talk to, which not a lot of faculty are,” Lauren Hoerstkamp commented.
Students here at NHHS would like to send Mrs. Ehrhard off with our final goodbyes.
“I want [Mrs. Gretal] to know that she truly brightens many students’ days every day with her amazing personality,” Addison Tolar voiced.
Lauren Hoerstkamp exclaimed, “[Mrs. Gretal] You will be missed! I will for sure miss talking to you before and after I go to A+, and of course, not seeing you and Anna at church every Sunday. I will for sure come visit!”
“She has made me realize that I shouldn't sweat the small stuff,” Julia Unnerstall stated. “...she is the best secretary ever!”
“Mrs. Gretal did a wonderful job while she was here,” Olivia Williams added. “When Mrs. Borcherding left, she left some pretty big shoes to fill. Mrs. Borcherding had been doing this job for so long, the tasks she did looked easy. After she left, we quickly figured out this was no easy job. Mrs. Gretal took on the challenge and did great! She learned how to do everything! She always greeted students with a smile! New Haven High will miss her and I wish her the best of luck!”
“[Mrs. Gretal] you are so awesome and I would have never thought I would have to say goodbye. I am going to miss you and you can always come and visit,” Lydia Otten added.
Miranda Durbin added her thoughts, “Mrs. Gretal, I will always miss the smiling and joking first thing in the morning as I am signing out to go to teacher aide. Although I won't see you before you leave, since I changed my schedule, I am glad that New Haven was able to be touched by your kindness before you had other adventures to pursue in life. Thank you for your time here at New Haven, and know that you are and were appreciated while you were here.”
Thank you for all that you have done for us, Mrs. Ehrhard. We wish you the best in Chicago and we hope you know that you will be missed.
