Message from the Superintendent
Dear SVCS Families,
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!
It is truly a privilege to serve as the Superintendent of the Stockbridge Valley School District. I hope all of our families have had a great summer and you’re now looking forward to a great school year. I continue to be optimistic that this will be the first time in more than 3 years we will be able to fully return to a normal school year. I know that our SVCS families and staff care a great deal about the well-being of our children. Our teachers, administrators, and staff work tremendously hard to ensure they are our top priority. We all want what is best for our children and we must actively work together to make that happen!
This summer, the SVCS team has been busy cleaning our building, installing new technology in our classrooms, hiring new staff, attending a variety of professional development training or workshops and putting the finishing touches on getting our schools ready for our students’ return on September 7, 2022.
New This Year:
• All classroom projectors have been upgraded with Promethean interactive smart boards.
• We continue to roll out our new communication platform ParentSquare - stay tuned!
• SVCS MISSION/VISION CLASSES BEGIN WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2022 Our K-6 instructional staff will participate in LETRS (Language Essential for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) training to better support the literacy development of all our students.
• Our 7-12 instructional staff will continue the work of unpacking the NYS Next Generation Learning standards to ensure our graduates are college and/ or career ready. All of us at Stockbridge Valley CSD are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. An optimistic attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing way. There is no doubt by working together, we will continue to make SVCS a special place for all of our students, our community and our staff.
I look forward to working with you as a team to ensure each student at Stockbridge Valley meets their goals and has a successful school year!
Sincerely, Superintendent of Schools
