Welcome Back from the Interim Superintendent/Principal
Dear Fairfield Township School District Community,
Welcome back to school! In a blink of an eye the summer has passed and beautiful September is here. I hope you have enjoyed the last few months of sunshine and time spent with your families! My summer was filled with biking, swimming, tennis and short trips to Washington DC, Annapolis and Ocean City MD with my family.
Fairfield Township School District has been busy preparing for our students this summer. We welcomed our new Child Study Team members and teachers to our district, who are all excited to meet you and your children. Together with our returning staff, we are a very strong team and we will continue to focus on people as our most valuable resource; students, staff, parents and community members.
We’ve also been hard at work implementing the School Improvement Plan, re-organizing our special education programs, increasing student support services, and utilizing Informational Technologies to enhance classroom instruction and total school management. Speaking of informational technologies, I highly encourage you to stay tuned for the brand-new district/school and classroom website. We have taken steps to ensure our sites are up-to-date and a valuable resource to our school community. Our upcoming online calendar is designed to be a helpful tool to stay informed of events and important dates in our school community.
All of these things aside, our most important job is to set the stage for the success for all students. Each day, we prioritize the needs of students first in our decision-making processes. We are dedicated to delivering a rigorous and relevant educational experience so that all Fairfield graduates will be prepared for high school, college and career. We are proud of the talented students and team members that make our community a wonderful place to live and work, and we hope you are too. We look forward to welcoming all students back on Tuesday, September 6, 2016.
Please join me in celebrating this new school year for our Fairfield Township School District community!
