A Message from Dr. Charles Galluzzo
From Me to You…
Welcome back to another school year! The start of every school year brings with it a chance for new beginnings. Our pre-schoolers are now full-fledged students as they begin their educational journey at A.J. Schmidt, J.T. Waugh or at Highland Elementary school. I know that for them, the next thriteen years will be filled with many enriching expereinces. At the other end of the specturm we have a new class of seniors getting ready to fly the from the nest and begin the next phase of their lives in higher education, the military or directly joining the workforce. It is through the efforts of many hands that make all of these new beginnings a reality. Thank you all for your support of our students.
Phase I of our construction project is nearing the end as we gear up to begin Phase two in Janauary. The contractors have put in a very extensive storm water management system in the area between the High School and the bus parking lot. The high school office, guidance and nurses area as well as the main foyer are complete and provide a more inivting and safe entrance into our high school. The transportation department has new bus lifts as well as new paving and traffice patterns to provide safety as buses leave and return on their daily runs. The drivers' training/break room restrooms & lockeroom are near completion and should be ready in the very near future. Roof work at the high school should be completed by the end of September. Thanks to everyone for their patience as this critical work continues.
Our distict goals focus on increased commuinication with parents, students, staff members, the Seneca Nation of Indians Edcuation Department and the community to seek feedback for the continual improvement of programs and edcuational opportunities the district provides for our students. Through this type of interaction we hope to be able to be more responsive to the needs of our students. One example of this open communication is the addition of certified staff members and the connection to outside agencies to help students and family through difficult times. The increased focus on providing an educational environment that addresses social emotional learning will give students the tools the need to work through personal challenges.
We look forward to working with all you to thoughout the year as we guide our youngest kindergarten students and most school seasoned seniors to have the best year possible to prepare them for the next phases or their lives.
Dr. Charles Galluzzo, Superintendent of Schools
