Letter from new Superintendent of Schools for the South Shore Regional School Board

Dear Families of the South Shore,

As the new Superintendent of Schools for the South Shore Regional School Board, it brings me great pleasure to welcome you back to school for the 2013-14 year.

I am excited to be on the South Shore, and look forward to building relationships with the school communities, staff and students. During my initial meetings and visits since joining the SSRSB I have seen great passion and strength. It is clear to me our greatest strength is our staff.  It is rewarding to work with people who are dedicated to student success, both academically and personally.

Over the next few weeks I will be out visiting schools, meeting staff and students. I look forward to attending school events and connecting with our families.

Strong communication, both within the organization and with our families and partners, is important as we work together. I encourage you to establish open dialogue with your child’s teachers and administration and be as involved in their education as you possibly can.

I feel strongly about working with various partners, including School Advisory Councils, Home and School Associations, our families and the community at large. Together, with the Governing Board and staff, we can create a strong team that works in support of our students.

Best wishes for a successful school year.
