Backyard barbeques. Popsicle-stained grins. Sprinklers and pool fun. Whatever your family’s summertime pleasure, I hope you all had an amazing, memorable summer.
What’s next as we head into fall? The start of school, of course. Teachers and staff members have been working hard to prepare for the 2014-2015 school year, and we can’t wait to welcome you! General Herkimer School is a happy, supportive place to learn and thrive. Students are expected to do their best every day by coming to school prepared to learn!
I would like to congratulate our third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade students for doing an outstanding job on their state assessments. There was a gain of 3% in ELA and 8% in math. Heading into the new school year, we continue to have high expectations for incoming kindergarteners and all of our students. We encourage new parents to get involved with school by attending PTO meetings, Open House and various events during the school year.
As a reminder, school safety is very important and there is a single point of entry. All visitors must enter through the main entrance and sign in.
Thank you to everyone for their continued support, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
