Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 school year. Here’s hoping that everyone enjoyed a relaxing summer break with family and friends. I am excited about the start of this school year! We have wonderful opportunities ahead to make a difference in the lives of children. Achieving student success continues to be our goal which will take a commitment to continuous learning on the part of talented motivated staff, informed parents and communities that are involved and values education. I am committed to making sure our students receive the best possible education at MRHS.
We’ve had a busy summer, getting ready for students to return. We have renovated science rooms, we have painted classrooms, and we have replaced furniture and re-polished floors along with our routine summer projects to ensure a smooth start to the school year.
For the 2018 – 2019 school year there will be one major enhancement that students and teachers will encounter. They will all be issued a Chromebook which they will need for everyday use in the classroom. This is the last phase of a three-year goal to fully implement a school-wide 1:1 initiative with Chromebooks. We will be training teachers how to effectively and efficiently embed technology into the daily curriculum.
Along with this initiative, we will hold mandatory parent meetings which will explain our technology policy and the use of Chromebooks. Please look out for our announcement regarding these meetings.
I am also proud to announce our administrative change for the new school year. MRHS will open this year with a new principal, Mr. John Coviello. Mr. Coviello comes to MRHS with experience as both a vice principal and principal. Please join me in extending best wishes to him for a productive school year.
Manchester Regional High School District is a district that strives for excellence and realizes that we all need to work together to provide the best education possible. I encourage all parents to stay involved in your child’s education. When your child succeeds, we all succeed because of the contributions young minds can make to our society and the communities in which we live.
