Dear Parents & Guardians:
Upcoming field trips, field days, concerts and class trips remind us that we are heading down the home stretch toward the last day of school, June 10. I am grateful to all of you for making this school year a success. In addition to our parents, our wonderful students and faculty deserve high commendations for their hard work and determination.
As you know, our students are awesome! Fourth graders are truly excited about “moving up” to the middle school and becoming fifth graders and our middle school staff and faculty are happy to welcome them. Their orientation will be held May 20 at the middle school and we look forward to showing them around their new academic home.
For many years, our eighth grade students have look forward to graduation (June 8) and will soon be preparing for the ceremony. They too have worked diligently and deserve many accolades for successfully completing a rigorous academic program. They may not admit it now (few do) but I can assure you that they will miss Hardyston!
You know we have wonderful teachers and staff in our district. It is bittersweet that we will be losing some of our best to a well-deserved retirement. With gratitude for their years of service, and with best wishes for a long retirement and future happiness, we offer a fond farewell to: Pam Styer, Adele Manailovich, Teresa Zinck, Rose Wolverton, Christine Paulik, Judy Williams and Barbara Kuz.
Finally, please remember that our graduation is June 8; tickets have been mailed out. Our last day of school is June 10, which is also an early dismissal as is June 8 and 9.
Thank you all for making Hardyston the best!
Richard R. Corbett, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
