September 2018

        Welcome back! I hope that you had an enjoyable summer and are looking forward with enthusiasm to
        the 2018-2019 school year. Our goal is to provide all students with the opportunity to excel
        academically and socially so they may become positive, contributing members of their school and
        community.  Knowledge is the key to success; therefore, I suggest that you read your child(ren)'s
        school handbook(s) thoroughly. They are a guide to aid you in understanding the policies of the
        district and, as such, will provide you with concise and readily available answers to questions and
        concerns that may arise throughout the school year. Students and parents are responsible for
        knowing the contents of their handbooks. Therefore, please keep it in a convenient location so that
        you are able to refer to it often. Additionally, please pay particular attention to those sections related
        to the dress code, harassment intimidation and bullying, attendance, social media, and participation in
        extra-curricular activities, and academics policies.

        For additional sources of information, I encourage you to watch Channel 19 in order to update
        yourself on the schools and community of the Pine Hill School District. A second source of
        information on our schools can be found on the district’s website: I encourage
        you to visit this site on a regular basis to learn more about school events, the scheduling of meetings,
        and classroom activities.  Additionally, at all four schools, we will be using the Genesis
        Communication System. Genesis is a web portal that provides an easy way for you to remain
        up-to-date on class news, your child(ren)'s latest grades, school events, and more. Our goal is to
        provide all students with an opportunity to excel so that they may become positive, contributing
        members of our schools and the community.

        As always, if you have any ideas that you would like to share, please do not hesitate to contact me. I
        look forward to working with you, as your support is essential for a positive school experience. As
        partners in education, we can prepare the students of the Pine Hill School District for a rewarding
