Can you believe we are already into the second quarter of the 2019-2020 school year?
It has been a whirlwind of a fall with construction continuing, academics and fall athletics. Congratulations to our boys’ and girls’ soccer teams for both qualifying for sectional play and our girls’ varsity volleyball team for winning the MAC Championship and finishing runner-up in Section IV. Another great season for all of our teams!
Work continues in our buildings and around the campus for Phase II of the Capital Project. The new heated sidewalks have been activated at the Jr/Sr HS campus, as well as new scoreboards in the MPR, locker rooms are completed and work continues in the new fitness center. Also at the Jr/Sr HS, work begins on replacing the unit ventilators in each of the classrooms. Most of this work will occur during second shift, however, some classrooms may have to be temporarily moved to other rooms while this process occurs. At Greenlawn Elementary summer abatement work occurred, and the new nurse’s office has been completed. And finally, Guilford Elementary had new boilers installed, work done in the gymnasium and a new stage curtain installed.
Our After School Childcare Program at Greenlawn Elementary continues to be very busy! The program is held each day after school that school is in session for students in grades preK-6th grade. The program currently has 40 children enrolled in it.
My coffees with the community have been going very well. I am learning a lot and getting to meet many great people. I have been presented with lots of questions, concerns and suggestions. If you haven’t attended and are able to attend on in the future, I would love the chance to meet and discuss with you your thoughts on our district.
We are moving into school budget season and the next few district newsletters will provide our community members and taxpayers with information on the upcoming school budget vote in May. We welcome you to come to school with budget questions or attend one of our Board of Education meetings to hear a budget presentation.
Please continue to email, call and stop by the district office with any questions you might have.
Timothy R. Ryan, Superintendent of Schools
