It’s hard to believe how quickly time has passed since the school year began on August 10th. We are now well into the first quarter and fall school activities. The big change has been on Wednesday afternoons. The rollout of the weekly early dismissals has been nearly flawless. Thank you for your help and cooperation in making that happen.
The Board of Education, Mr. Zink and I have heard many nice comments on how nice our buildings and grounds look. Especially noted are the many improvements to Richards Memorial Stadium. Those improvements include new paving, a landscaped wall in front of the home side bleachers, fence guards on the field fencing, a new sound system and power washed bleachers. The old stadium sure looks nice. In other news and over the next several weeks, we will begin repairing the main drive at the elementary school. That work will take place on weekends when there are fewer activities.
One very noticeable change which you can’t miss is the installation of the digital sign on Route 62 in front of the H.S. /M.S. All the latest news on events/school activities will be displayed. We hope you find this helpful. By the way, this digital sign was made possible by a sizable donation from our PTO.
The board of education continues to work with our architect on the eventual construction of two new buildings on the H.S./M.S. campus. One will be workout/locker rooms/multi-purpose space building while the other located at the new soccer/track stadium will be a field house, concessions, restroom building. Both will go to bid around the first of the year and should be ready for use next fall.
We are working hard to provide our students, parents, and community with the very best school system possible. Thank you for input and support. Have a great fall!
