A Message From The Superintendent
Dear Duxbury Parents,
I hope this letter finds you well. As we approach the end of September, I wanted to let you know that we have had an exceptional start to the 2017-2018 school year. The more I learn about the Duxbury Public Schools, the more impressed I am. We have an exceptional faculty and staff; we have students who are motivated to learn; and we have a community that shows us support in so many ways. That’s a winning combination. I am thrilled to be here, and I am very excited about what the future may hold.
Below are several updates and items of interest, including live links to various sites:
- Community Forums: As part of my entry into the Duxbury community, I want to create as many opportunities as possible to talk to parents and other residents to understand your perspective on the district, and to listen to your hopes and expectations for your children’s experience in school. To that end, I will be hosting two Community Forums on Thursday, October 12 at the Alden School, Room 104. The morning session begins at 9:30 am, and the evening session begins at 7:00 pm. I hope to see you there!
- School Committee Calendar: We are fortunate to have five dedicated members of the Duxbury School Committee, each of whom works hard to balance the needs of our students and the needs of the greater community. School Committee meetings are open to the public, and we welcome your attendance and participation. Click here for the 2017-2018 meeting calendar.
- School Committee meeting materials: If you can’t make the meetings but are interested in staying informed, we have also made available an abundance of information on the district website, including: meeting agendas, minutes, videos, and presentation materials. Check it out here.
- Social Media: Just a reminder to “follow” us on Twitter (@duxbury_ps) or “‘like” us on Facebook (Duxbury Public Schools). I believe social media is an excellent vehicle for disseminating relevant and timely information to families, and a great way of promoting our schools and students.
I look forward to seeing you around the community in the coming weeks and months. Until then, thank you for your continued support of the Duxbury Public Schools!
