A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
August 26, 2013
Dear Carle Place Residents:
Welcome to the 2013 – 2014 academic year. As we conclude our summer preparations, we are thankful for the continued support of the community and mindful of the fact that we serve as stewards of your facilities. With your help, we are always working to maintain our buildings and grounds to ensure a safe and effective environment for teaching and learning and to provide a school setting that serves as a source of pride and value for our community. To this end, we have initiated facilities improvement work at all three of our buildings including a new playground at Rushmore, a new roof at Cherry Lane and auditorium upgrades at the MS/HS! Of course, even more work is in the planning stages.
Many of our teachers have been busy with preparations, too. New curriculum documents have been written, vetted by administration and approved by the Board of Education. Several rigorous professional development programs have been completed including those related to our new partnership with Syracuse University Project Advance.
This website has been designed to promote family and community participation in our school district activities. From attendance at Board of Education meetings, to involvement in our Parent/Teacher organizations, there are many opportunities to become involved. Of course there are a plethora of student performances, both on the stage and the playing field, that provide excellent opportunities for family-friendly entertainment. I hope to see you there!
Please accept my best wishes for a safe, healthy and successful school year.
David J. Flatley
