Principal Pierce receives the Lawrence O’Toole Leadership Award 
December 26, 2014

On December 16th, the Nellie Mae Foundation formerly presented Principal Pierce with a check in the amount of $100,000 as this year’s recipient of the Lawrence O’Toole Leadership Award.

Principal Pierce’s win marks the first time Maine has won the award. He competed against nominees from each New England state to become the top vote getter in the online popular vote for the award.  I would like to once again acknowledge and thank our community members who supported Principal Pierce and the Portland Public Schools.  Principal Pierce ended up with more than 6,000 votes, about twice as many as the second highest vote getter received.

Principal Piere is an inspirational leader who exemplifies the students-first approach we value here at the Portland Public Schools.  He is an excellent representative of the great schools and also of the great leadership we have here in Portland.

Kudos to Rachelle Tome, Acting Commissioner of Education, Anne Haskell, Maine State Senator, Michael Brennan, Mayor of Portland, and Nicholas Donohue, President and CEO of the Nellie Mae Foundation for participating in the ceremony.

How does it makes you feel? IT HURTS TO KNOW YOU ARE UNABLE TO CONCEIVE?. There is a solution. My name is Zoe Bower and I am from Tallahassee, Florida, USA. I was not able to conceive for over 4 years of my marriage but i did solve my problem. I met a testimony online about a spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and I contacted him to help me. He did something for me and I still don't know what it is up till now but within 3 days after he said he has done the work, I went for a test and the results showed I was fertile and after sleeping with my husband, I became pregnant. I am writing this because I promised Doctor Odunga I will publish his name once I get my desires. I am happy with the work of this man for me and if you need help, I think you should be happy you read my testimony because you have found help to your problem. His email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

I never use to believe in spell casting until i met Lord Zuma a powerful spell caster who helped me to be a happy person again. i reside in USA. After 4 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids. I felt like my life was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a Great spell caster called Lord Zuma which i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great spell caster how he has helped so many people. he has helped people to bring back their Ex lover, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it was about a woman called Sandra, she testified about how his spell made her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of her testimony she dropped Lord Zuma's email address. After reading all these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my problem to him and he assured me that in less than 48 hours, my husband will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work. When he had finished casting the spell, the next day my husband called me and he was begging for forgiveness just as Lord Zuma said. This is not brain washing and after the spell has been cast, i realized that my husband love me like never before and the spell caster opened him up to know how much i love him and how much love we need to share. We are even happier now than before. Lord Zuma is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and a genuine spell caster to solve all your problems contact Lord Zuma now on spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or just visit https://spiritualherbal.blogspot.com and see so many he has helped that are testifying about his good work. He will help you solve all your problems. Once again thank you Lord Zuma for your good deeds. His whatsapp number +1 506 800 1647

Do not contact any other spell caster to help you so that you will not fall into the wrong hands. Contact Dr Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com to help you with your fertility, ex back, a love spell, a herbal medicinal cure and you will get awesome results. I met this man through a testimony online and it has been a wonderful experience of a lifetime. I am very happy I did. He helped me get pregnant. I am Becky Elise but my friends call me Ann. I am from Florida, US. I have contacted 3 spell casters before I met Dr Odunga. I didn't know why I didn't contact him at first. I would have been through my pain for the past 5 years trying to find the right spell caster who can help me with my problem. I have been married to my husband for 18 years and I have not had one single issue. No woman on earth will be happy about this. I did all I could to hold a home until I started seeking help from spell casters. I had gone to various hospitals here in Florida and they said my womb cannot conceive a child. I have spent millions of dollars finding a solution until I met DR ODUNGA. I feel like shedding tears at this point. My problem is gone. I can bodily say my problem is gone for the past 18 years of marriage. If you are reading this testimony, you will share with me my Joy. Contact this spell caster at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

Are you in USA,Canada, GERMANY, NORWAY, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND, UK?ETC and you need a real spell caster to help you bring back your ex lover urgently? contact drsakomo@gmail.com for Urgent and effective love Spell" My name is Natoya Fredrick am from Houston Texas, USA. After being in relationship with Robinson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend called Jessica and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so very sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me solved my own problem.

I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my husband. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and she told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my husband know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Zuma zuk spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com

We like to acknowledge each other by giving praise and acknowledgment. Schools do this from various perspectives, from basic, casual acts, for example, a student expressing gratitude toward another student for being benevolent and steady, to exceedingly formalized acts, for example, an important displaying a yearly award for academic perfection at a great award ceremony.
