The students and faculty at Penrose Elementary School wanted to thank their principal, Kirsten Cortez, in a special way to show their love for her in her last days as their principal. While one of the faculty took her to lunch, the entire school lined the street to cheer her as she returned to school on Wednesday, May 15, 2013. Cortez was one of the principals to lose her position in recent restructuring at School District 11.(Jerilee Bennett/The Gazette)
