Back to School

August 2015

 

Dear Families,

 

The days are still warm and long, the beach still beckons, and (not but) Weston Public Schools is busily preparing for another school year rich with opportunities and challenges for every student.  I welcome you to the 2015-16 school year. 

 

I think there are few events that are as exciting as the opening of the school year.  In my day, it was a time for that new pair of shoes, a couple of new #2 pencils with full erasers, and when I got to high school, a new slide rule.  While a lot has changed, some aspects of a new school year remain the same. Students are happy to be back to a routine and to be with their friends; they are also curious about who their teacher will be and what new adventures will be explored in their classroom.  Parents/guardians are likewise happy their children are back into a routine, curious about this year’s teacher(s), yet slightly melancholy knowing that another school year means one fewer as a child, adolescent or teenager.

 

The faculty and staff of WPS return from their summer of coursework, professional development, and time for learning at a different pace.  New teachers and administrators have joined an experienced and talented group of educators that we are fortunate to have in our classroom and schools.   They will bring their excitement and talents to the classroom with an understanding that we are helping our students become successful learners not only in school but, more importantly, outside the schoolhouse doors.  Students will be challenged, but we will endeavor not to lose the balance that comes with encouraging creativity, exploring the unknown, and celebrating the gains.   To borrow from Gladys Knight and the Pips, we all talk about the good old days, but let’s remember these are the good old days for our children; we have to make them meaningful, memorable and fun.

 

If you are new to Weston or this is your first year with a child in our district, we especially welcome you.  I think you will find this to be great place to learn and grow.  There are many opportunities for you to be involved in your child’s education; we urge you to take advantage of them.  PTO leaders and WEEFC officers and board members are great resources and stand ready to welcome you and help you find ways to become involved in support of our schools and classrooms.

 

School Opening Schedule

All Principals will be available beginning the week of August 24 if you have any questions.  An orientation program for ninth graders and students new to the high school (grades 10-12) will occur on Tuesday, September 1.  We provide a staggered start for elementary students to personalize transition, which is outlined in the document, “Important School Information 2015-2016.”  All of this information and other notifications are available on school and district web pages, which we urge you to visit regularly throughout the school year.

 

To all families, we thank you for your continued support, for the resources to provide quality and breadth of services, and for the opportunity to work with and teach your most valuable resource – your child.

 

Dr. John Brackett

Superintendent
