To all of our students, teachers, families, and staff members: Happy New Year! We returned to school on January 2 and we’re looking forward to an exciting and productive winter and spring.
Serving as the Interim Superintendent through June 30, 2020, I look forward to working with our dedicated educators and talented students for the remainder of the school year. Our calendar is busy and I encourage you to utilize our website. Parents can use the “Upcoming Events” feature to track happenings on a school-by-school basis.
Keep your eyes on our website for all upcoming events and photos that truly showcase our students’ talents and that support our teachers’ high expectations for their achievement. As you access the website, you will see that our work would not be possible without the successful relationships we have built together with our parents, civic, community, and business partners. The Everett Public Schools is the Everett community.
I also look forward to working with the School Committee in the coming months to ensure full support for our students, teachers and academic programs. A special welcome to the three newest members of the Committee: Cynthia Sarnie, Samantha Lambert, and Dana Murray. I send a special thank you as well to former longtime members David Ela, Bernie D’Onofrio, and Lester MacLaughlin for their years of service to our students and teachers.
Because of the collaborative work among the district’s Central Administration, Mayor Carlo DeMaria, and the School Committee, the Everett Public Schools are well supported. And thanks to the work of Senator Sal DiDomenico, State Representative Joseph McGonagle and their colleagues on Beacon Hill, our schools have been able to offer specialized programs and activities for all students. Our students are our chief assets and their accomplishments our greatest source of pride.
During my remaining time as Superintendent, my open-door policy to parents, community, and students will remain effective. I am readily available via email as well. Working together, we will ensure that our children will continue to thrive for the remainder of this school year and beyond. Please let me know if there is anything I or my staff can do to help your child.
We are Everett: a community that cares. I echo the mantra of the Mayor from his midterm address as he defined Everett: Pride; Possibilities; Progress. We are truly united in the vision for Everett!
