CASSIE SINICHKO - DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

Mrs. Sinichko was born and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated from Principia College in Elsah, Illinois with degrees in Elementary Education and Sociology. The first five years out of college were spent in Colorado where she met her husband, fell in love with the mountains, worked for a Youth Organization and as Assistant Director for a Child Development Center.

The past 28 years Mrs. Sinichko has lived in Burke, Virginia where she raised her three children and worked as an elementary school teacher for the Fairfax County Public Schools. Mrs. Sinichko's family includes her husband Mark; son Justin who lives in Boulder, Colorado; daughter Kelsey who lives in Virginia Beach; and, daughter Becca who lives in Missoula, Montana.  

Mrs. Sinichko joined GWCS as a staff member in 2006 but she has been a part of the GWCS community since 2005 when her son enrolled as a senior. Now that her children are grown and gone, the students at GWCS fill the void with hugs and silliness galore.

What Mrs. Sinichko enjoys most about her job is the fact that every single day is different depending on what is going on at GWCS that week.  Her responsibilities include but are not limited to:  maintaining the school website and Facebook pages; assembling the weekly newsletter; prospective family interface; parent communications; parent, student and staff handbook development; records maintenance; database creation and implementation; assisting with college admissions process; managing student transcripts and general files; scheduling events and activities; supporting the Director as best she can; and anything else that comes her way.
