The district welcomed back faculty and staff today to open the 2017-2018 school year and looks forward to getting the students back in the building and beginning the year’s work with them as the focus and primary reason for doing what the district does.
The playground area has been expanded in the back lot to now incorporate an asphalt play area. Some sensory wall equipment will be added in the next few weeks. Thank you to Mike and Patti Gardner for coming in with their son over the weekend to paint game areas in this new expansion as well as constructing the GaGa Ball Pit.
Mark Dengler came into the school to look at our school and the facilities as a next step in the process by Research and Marketing Strategies to evaluate the town resources. This is a followup to the community survey that was done recently concerning a possible community center in the future. The school was one of several sites being looked at as part of the process.
Thank you to the Board of Education and the community for supporting the school and the students by challenging the district to offer an array of opportunities for students today and in the future. The district has grown offerings to meet the needs and interests of students by tapping into the expertise and interests of staff to offer coursework beyond the basic required courses.
The theme will continue this year identifying all of those connected with the school and community as important pieces of the puzzle that will allow students to grow and achieve great things for the region and beyond. All the pieces must come together to complete the picture and have the outcome everyone hopes and strives for. Together everyone will make 2017-2018 a great school year.
