|It is hard to believe that the first month of school is behind us! And while transition to every new school year can be anxiety-producing, our exemplary staff works hard every day to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where every child can reach his/her fullest potential. With the passing of our opening weeks, the students’ (and staff’s) natural anxiety and nervousness have eased and I continue to rest assured that at Manchester Regional High School teaching and learning occur in an atmosphere of normalcy and calm.||
This year the Board of Education has set two goals for our district. One is to provide communication that is timely, responsive, and clear in order to increase the community’s understanding of our programs, activities, and initiatives. One venue to communicate with the public-at-large are updates on our website and via social media (on our Facebook and Twitter accounts). I encourage you to view these sites and contact the administrative team with any questions or suggestions.
The second goal is to improve our quality of instruction through quantifiable supervision. All of our supervisors and administrators have undergone training and job-embedded coaching on the Focal Point Principal Practice Evaluation System and the Danielson model. These trainings help ensure consistency and fidelity of our walkthroughs, observations, and evaluations. .
Let us have a great October, as this is a month filled with special days. In addition to Red Ribbon Week (10/23-31), we celebrate World Teacher Day (10/5), Child Health Day (10/6), Columbus Day (10/13), United Nations Day (10/24), the Dedication of the Statue of Liberty (10/28), and Halloween (10/31), just to name a few.
As I mentioned in my first posting, striving for excellence has been, and will continue to be, our goal. As your educational leader I will work hard to develop a solid base upon which our students will continue to grow and improve throughout their lives.
