Happy New Year!
I hope that the Holiday Break brought an opportunity for all of you to “recharge” your batteries, spend time with friends and family, and take time to reflect on the last year.
We have received great news that our Middle School has received national recognition as a “School to Watch.” Mrs. AbiNader and her staff will be recognized along with school across the nation this spring in Washington, D.C. Congratulations on a job well done!
As a child, I remember New Year’s as a time when I would be asked, “What is your New Year’s Resolution?” I usually answered, “I am giving up Brussels sprouts or broccoli”, something that wouldn’t adversely affect my life. However, I soon resolved instead of giving something up, I am going to do something this year, I am going to lose weight, sorry Hickory Grille and the many slices of Ho-Ho cake I have eaten.
So I ask you, what is your New Year’s resolution? If you don’t have one, I have a few suggestions:
Resolve to join the District’s Comprehensive Planning Team that will help determine the direction of the District.
Resolve to quit spreading and telling lies on Facebook. If you have a question, call me at 724-962-8300 ext. 4104 – office or 724-919-2059 – cell. If you have a question call me, you may not like the answer or we might disagree but it will always be the truth.
Resolve to become more involved with your child’s grades, homework, and school. If your child does not like to come to school, call us, we can help. If your child loves school, call us and share with us. Join a committee, join the PTO, join a booster club, attend a game, a concert, play or just come up for visit. We serve you!
Resolve to be passionate about learning and instruction. There are great things going on in your District, yes your District. Be passionate about our District. We have great relationships with the Borough, the Police and various businesses. We only get better with your passion and input.
I look forward to working with you and our staff to provide an excellent education and a safe, nurturing environment for your child to grow.
Best wishes for the New Year,
Dr. Brad Ferko
