Allow me begin this final Front Page letter by thanking so many for a wonderfully successful school year. Our district is fortunate to have an abundance of hard-working and respectful young students. Although examples are many, this was evidenced most recently by our eighth grade students who went to New York City for lunch and a Broadway show. From the time students boarded the buses until they returned to Hardyston, they were courteous and kind.
These behaviors are cultivated in the home and reinforced at school. Parents and teachers working together model these virtues for our young people thereby providing powerful and lifelong lessons. “Kudos” to all our parents and teachers for all your hard work!
After many years of studies, our eighth grade students will graduate on June 23. It is, perhaps, the most significant annual district event. I encourage everyone to attend and share the joy and excitement as our students receive their diplomas.
I hope your child will make the most out of summer. As you enjoy the summer months, please encourage your children to read. They will be bringing home summer packages that contain more information regarding expectations for summer studies.
School will begin again on Friday, September 5. In the meantime, I ask you to visit the district website regularly for the most up-to-date information.
Have a safe and studious summer!
