Nancy Macione, principal at Oswegatchie Elementary School in Waterford, hugs one of the students Tuesday as she helps with dismissal. Macione, the school's principal for the last 12 years, announced to her staff and parents last week that she is retiring at the end of the school year. She has been in the school system since 1993. "Most of all, I'll miss the kids," she said Tuesday. "There's a certain curiosity about them; they're so charming."
