Dedicated to excellence in education
From the Superintendent's Desk
Dear School Community Members,
Over this holiday season I have been truly impressed by the generous donations that have been made to local food pantries and needy families. The partnerships that have been created between the schools and local civic and church organizations have been a model for other communities to follow. Whether it be a commitment on a building level or a club, such as our National Honor Society, the impact is significant.
Last week, WGRZ (Channel 2) did a feature on our Middle School Food Drive entitled “Small School, Big Donation: Roy-Hart Middle School collects over 6,000 items for local food pantry”. The feature exemplifies one of the greatest outcomes that a small town education can provide for its students and community -- service to others and empathy. The food drive in itself was a huge service to the community by providing much needed food to those in need. Through the process of the food drive, our young people had a greater sense of the emotions of others and what they might be thinking, feeling or experiencing.
Thank you to all of the students, adults and community organizations for their support of the families of the Roy-Hart District and beyond. I am so very proud of the good work taking place.
As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out and say hello when you see me around the schools and town, or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski
