Superintendent's Message

Pat Ciccantelli

Well, we have been able to avoid our favorite four letter word – SNOW – so far this season and I’m hopeful that this trend will continue for at least the near future.  Unfortunately, snow days and delayed start days are right around the corner so we will be posting our delayed start information on the website so that everyone is aware of the procedures.

Even though the weather hasn’t made it feel much like winter, the holiday season is quickly approaching.  With that comes a flurry of activity in our buildings.  Each of our school buildings hosts a variety of holiday giving projects.  Please look for the ways that your student’s specific building is helping to make the season brighter for those in need throughout our area. Without fail, each year, the generosity of our school family and community members amazes me and my staff members.  It is a tribute to our school district and city to have so many philanthropic minded people spearhead, organize, and contribute to our giving projects.  I want to extend a sincere “thank you” to all who support these amazing endeavors. 

Along with the holiday season comes an array of winter concerts put on by our bands, choirs and orchestras. Our holiday concert schedule can be found on our website. The students sound terrific practicing already!  Attending these concerts is a wonderful way to enhance your holiday season with the gift of music.   These are all free and open to the community to enjoy.  By supporting and participating in concerts, parties, giving projects and holiday events, you are making memories and setting a positive example for your children to follow. 

I want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and hope that you truly enjoy the time spent with family and friends.  Cherish each moment!
