Welcome to the start of another school year!
It’s hard to believe this is already our third year together.
You know, there is no feeling that compares to the promise and hope that you feel as you begin to embark on a new teaching adventure with a new group of young scholars.

I would like to thank the Board of Education and Board President Guy Leggio.Wallet Bag Makeup Women's Metallic Clutch Surface Black Embossed tq4nw5vga
As some of you may have heard, last month the Board put its trust in me to run the Bay Shore School District for the next three years.
Our school board is a dedicated, hard-working group that volunteers its time to ensure our children have the best educational experience possible.
A round of applause, please, for the Board of Education.
As most of you know, I come from a family of teachers. I have a deep respect for teachers, as does the Board of Education and my cabinet.
The value we place on our teachers is evident in the support we provide day in and day out.

As I mentioned then, you are fortunate to have joined such a great district!
Handbag MIU Dark MIU brown Handbag Dark MIU MIU You were selected out of many applicants because we saw something special in you and believe you will help us continue our tradition of excellence.
MIU MIU Handbag Dark Handbag MIU MIU Dark brown I would ask you to look around at all of our veteran teachers.Insert Suede Blue Satchel Color Bag 4xw7U8
These individuals are leaders in the field who are so often at the cutting-edge of best practices.
I encourage you to seek them out for advice.
I would like to offer you my own advice as you start out: if you have passion for your work and you approach each day with the same level of enthusiasm, you, and your students, will be successful.
MIU MIU MIU Dark brown Handbag MIU Dark Handbag One of the great things about Bay Shore is the way in which our teachers generously share with not only their Bay Shore colleagues but colleagues around the country.
I know everyone here is eager to welcome you and support you.
Will those who are new among us please stand?
A round of applause, please, for our new colleagues.
Now this is the point in this speech where I traditionally quote Kennedy.
And this year will be no different. But I thought I would switch it up a little bit and quote a different Kennedy.
The former Senator from New York, Robert F. Kennedy, once said, “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.”
Bobby was right.
Each day, you help to write the history of not only your own generation but of the youngest generation.
Each day, you inspire our students to dream to the limits of their imagination.
Each day, you teach them how to lead in the classroom, in groups and in their community.
Each day, you help them to achieve to the highest levels of their potential.

By doing so, you change a small portion of world events and create citizens that are ready to take on the challenges that lay beyond the walls of our schools and to build bridges to bring people closer together.
In the coming year we as a district will continue providing our students and families with the best resources available.
Dark MIU MIU Handbag Handbag brown MIU MIU Dark Our Family Engagement Program, which saw great success in its first full year last year, will continue to provide opportunities to bring our ENL families into the fabric of our schools.
The program hosts sessions that help to explain the logistics of the school system, the importance of homework and the importance of family involvement in education.
The families who have already participated speak glowingly of their experience and we look forward to seeing even more families benefit from the program, and become full and active members of the Bay Shore family.
Work on the Armory will continue as we move towards our UPK program holding classes in the building beginning in September 2018.
There is still much work to be done before it is complete, however, it is moving along quickly.
The cutting edge facility will allow us to provide a unique space our youngest learners need to grow while freeing up classroom space for our growing population in other buildings.
I look forward to seeing all of the things you will help our students accomplish this year and all of the ways you will continue to innovate.
Please know that everyone at District Office stands ready to help you in any way we can.
Let’s have a great year and Let’s Go Marauders!
