Dear Students and Families:

It is hard to believe that over one month as your new principal has passed! I am very excited to be here and I have been able to meet many of the faculty, staff, and some students. It has been a very busy time learning a new school and its procedures; like some, I have recently settled in the community and am learning my way around Stamford as well.

While July and August provide a well-deserved break for students, faculty, and staff, much work is done behind the scenes during this time. The building itself is ‘resting’, but our custodial staff works hard to make certain the physical structure is bright, shiny, and clean and ready to open for school in September. Administration and staff are compiling data and submitting state reports, preparing grant applications, partaking in professional development opportunities, and participating in planning sessions for the upcoming school year. Camp H.E.R.E was a success, and many of our students participated either as counselors or as campers. Additionally, our Summer Skills Academy provided an opportunity for several students to maintain progress toward graduation and prepare for August Regents exams. 

August continues the planning and preparation for 2018-2019 as our faculty and staff return for Superintendent’s Conference Days on August 29 and 30. The C.R.O.P. program began July 30 and ended August 10. I hope to visit the Delaware County Fair and do some hiking along the trails, as well as meet many of you in town and at community events.

The Digital Learning Initiative enters its third year; iPads will be distributed to students at the beginning of the year for use in classes. The next stage of the initiative allows parents who wish their child to be able to bring an iPad home an opportunity to come with their student(s) to review our Acceptable Use Policy and procedures for taking an iPad home. These dates/times will be published on our website and will take place in September. In support of this initiative, a group of faculty traveled to the Boston Learning Conference (BLC) July 25-27 and were amazed at what is going on around the country and the world with various types of digital applications and new thinking about the role of technology in education. There is MUCH to be excited about! The generosity of the Robinson-Broadhurst Foundation is at the heart of this initiative (as well as Camp H.E.R.E and Capturing Kids’ Hearts program) and our school community is grateful for their benevolence.

The first day of classes is September 5, with a start time of 8:03 a.m. The doors will be open at 7:45 a.m. Prompt school and class attendance per Board of Education policy will be emphasized as we prepare students to be Career Ready and responsible citizens. Please make certain to review the School Calendar and Student Handbook with your child for important information and procedures to ensure a safe, healthy, and productive year of growing and learning!

Enjoy the rest of your summer, and I look forward to meeting you!

Shawn L. Davis,

Principal
