Message from Mr. John Vannoy

Dear Sharpsville Community members: 

The beginning of a new school year, like the dawning of a new day, reminds us that the future holds infinite possibilities.  The first day of school is one filled with a litany of emotions.   From our anxiety ridden kindergarten parents to our Class of 2020, it is now time to embark on our educational journey that will be the 2019-2020 school year.  I hope that your summer was relaxing, filled with adventures and good health because you deserve it.  The opportunity to refuel over the summer is a necessary component of the important work that we all do.  I know that we are about to begin a great school year filled with hope, vision, and excitement.  This year grades 6 through 9 will begin our one to one Chromebook initiative.  This is an exciting venture that will help provide our students with the necessary skills to navigate the 21st century highway.   

I am a firm believer that reading is the foundation that education is built upon.   Here are some characteristics of good readers:

To quote Dr. Seuss:  “The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you will go.”

In closing, every child needs a champion.  Be that champion, be a beacon of support, and be a positive influence on our students.  As the time tested adage goes; it takes a village to educate a child.  I hope that each of you enjoy the remaining days of summer.  I look forward to a year filled with stories of great success and great learning.  Please visit the district website under the news section for the 2019 back to school toolkit.  I can be reached at 724-962-8300 ext. 4104 or at  

Yours in education,

John Vannoy
