Morning Announcements

Letter from Superintendent Ciccone

August 11, 2017

Dear Middle School Parents/Guardians:

Today, I write with news of our progress since informing you of our Middle School Principal’s resignation on August 2nd. Mindful that our opening day for students is rapidly approaching (August 30th), I am pleased to share good news with you. As promised, I am notifying you that we have been fortunate in our search for Interim Principal of the Middle School. On Monday, our interim Middle School Principal will join us. Sharon Weirsman, former public school principal in Cheshire, CT, retired after 15 years as Principal of the Doolittle School, grades 1 – 6.
Let me share a bit more about Principal Weirsman’s background. After her long and successful career in public school administration, she served as an invited adjunct instructor and university supervisor in the Schools of Education for St. Joseph University and University of New Haven teacher preparation programs. Also of noteworthy experience, she has served as an invited Executive Coach with the CT Association of Schools. Most recently, Mrs. Weirsman took on the interim needs of the Turkey Hill School in Orange, CT, a school of virtually the same size as our middle school in student and staff numbers.

If you would like to meet Sharon Weirsman before the opening of schools, both Mrs. Weirsman and I will be available in the Middle School Library for introductions. Please feel free to stop by for a meet and greet on Monday, August 21st between the hours of 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. The August 21st opportunities to meet the Interim Principal do not interfere with the August 22nd, Popsicle Tuesday invitation for 5th graders and their parents. That will be another chance for 5th grade parents to meet the principal, and, of course, our planned Open House on September 14th will be yet another opportunity to meet Mrs. Weirsman. Information on the Open House will be sent to you in the Back-to-School Packet you will be receiving next week.

Again, let me assure you that we are indeed fortunate to have Mrs. Weirsman join us to serve as a steady resource of support for our students, families and staff as we start our new school year. I hope you will join the Board of Education and the Administrative team in welcoming Sharon Weirsman and wishing her much success in her interim position.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns.


Patricia A. Ciccone
