It’s a great time of year to be in New England! The recent run of nice weather has put everyone in high spirits as we head to the close of the school year. From an academic and extracurricular perspective, it’s been an exceptional year related to student performance. It has also been an exceptional year related to the work that our professional staff has undertaken. On the left is a link to our spring newsletter. In this newsletter is a “focus article” on our new math program. It has been many years since we have had deep participation from our professional staff in program renewal. The math program represents a new beginning and brings with it a sustainable process to bring quality to all of our programs. I’d like to thank Assistant
Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, MaryAnn Perry, and all the members of her curriculum committees for a job well done.
On a personal note, I recently announced my resignation as superintendent for Marblehead Public Schools. I would like to acknowledge and thank all of my immediate staff and the entire staff within the school district for their strong support over the past two years. Additionally, I’d like to thank the community for their wise advice as I led the Marblehead schools during this time. As is true in all manners of life, challenges will still present themselves but I believe the foundation based upon collaborative leadership focused on instructional excellence will provide the guidepost for continued success. Finally, I’d like to congratulate our seniors. It’s a long journey and one that is continuously challenging for our students. It is now time
for each of our seniors to take that next step and enjoy the “view to the rest of the world.” Good luck!
