River Forest's new superintendent stepped out this week for a casual meet-and-greet at Roosevelt Middle School, as a line of parents, teachers, and community members stood to make their introductions.

Dr. Edward Condon introduced the members of his new school district to his wife, Virginia, and shook hands and sparked short conversations with the crowd gathered. Condon's official start date as superintendent is July 1. He is currently finishing up the school year in his position as principal of Butler Junior High School in Oak Brook.

The afternoon event took place on May 31, and was arranged in a collaborative effort between Parent and Teacher Organizations for all River Forest Public School District 90 schools.

"It's just an opportunity for everyone to say hello," said James Weiss, a member of the District 90 school board.

Terrie Rayburn, co-president with Patty Henek of the Roosevelt PTO, said that she and Henek helped organize the event as a welcome reception, to better acquaint Condon with his new school community. Rayburn said everyone was invited to attend, from all three Dist.90 schools. And the turnout was pleasing.

"I even see a retired teacher here, which is nice," Rayburn said.
