Welcome to the 2013-14 School Year!
As the Interim Superintendent of the Little Ferry School District, I am honored to be in the position to invite you to prepare for another exciting and productive school year. I want to begin by thanking the numerous board members, staff, parents, and community members who continue to provide a warm “Welcome Back” to me since my arrival on July 1st. As one who served in this position before, I feel confident in stating that there are few districts, in our very populated state, that can claim to have a more caring constituency that is completely unified, in terms of giving their all, to develop outstanding schools.
As I followed the Little Ferry story in the news last fall, like many others, I was amazed by your strength. I applaud your dedicated faculty and support staff, who improvised and delivered an outstanding education while recognizing that their students needed routine and normalcy to move forward. I commend every person in the community for the contributions each of you made to getting us to this point today. As a result of your efforts, we, locally, are nearing recovery and are moving forward to attain our shared goals. You are an inspiration and remind me of the sheer force created when a community is so wholly dedicated to a noble mission.
Now that I’m back among you, I’ve been immediately impressed by the pride, fortitude, wisdom, and skill demonstrated by all that I have encountered. Clearly, it’s an honor and a privilege to serve you. It’s my sincere hope that you will be more than satisfied with my efforts to develop thriving educational programs to prepare Little Ferry’s students to compete in the global economy of tomorrow. If New Jersey is “Stronger than the Storm”, it’s because of towns like Little Ferry—where resilient families bond to form the foundation of all that is great about our state.
I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and working, side by side, with you to further expand rigorous school programs to ensure that every child has a brighter tomorrow. Thank you, for your partnership and support.
