Hello Students and Parents,
The 2015 – 2016 school year starts on Tuesday, August 25, 2015. It seemed to be the shortest summer in my memory and if you actually counted the number of days out of school it may have been. We got out so late due to snow days and this is the earliest date back to school that I have record of.
We are now starting our 8th year in this building. I think it still looks pretty good. We replaced much of our technology and computers this summer. We want to be current and 6-7 years is about the averaged expected life of a desk top computer.
We welcome back all of our returning students and families and a special hello and welcome to our new students and families. We will try to keep everyone up to date with what’s going on in the school this year through a Weekly Bulletin / Newsletter. We’ll send out info on events, calendars and important news. We plan to post it on this website and on Power School. A new one will be posted each week. I also send out a lot of voice message announcements. Last year I sent record number of announcements. It figured out to be about one every other day. That’s a lot but we’re trying to keep parents up to date and in the know.
By the way our first PTO meeting is Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015 with breakfast served at 9:30 am. It’s a good breakfast, trust me on this, I’m a principal. So, here is hoping and wishing everyone a great, fulfilling year full of learning, growing, friendship and enjoyment.
John P. Laverty
