Dear Newark School District 66 Families and Extended Learning Community:
Welcome! Whether you are a newcomer or a returning learning community member, we welcome you to a new and exciting school year. The 2012-2013 school year was an exceptional year in NewarkSchool District66; each year our students and staff members amaze and impress with their successes and accomplishments. We hope you feel welcome in our schools and that you will take advantage of opportunities to become involved, to learn more about your school district, and to become a part of the many opportunities that are taking place within our schools.
We anticipate this being an even better year. We believe that we have the best teachers and staff members possible to teach our children each and every day. This year, we have had a small opportunity to hire certified staff as so many of our teachers stay with us for their tenure. We are excited about and welcome our new staff members as well as our amazing returning teachers.
Parent Connections: To learn more about our schools, our successes, and our learning community, we provide various communication opportunities.
Strategic Plan: This year we will revisit our Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan is the instrument we use in the district to drive our decisions in curriculum, finance, building repair and maintenance, transportation and other issues pertinent to our school. We welcome parent and community input. Watch our communications for more information.
I look forward to the new year and to greeting each and every member of our learning community and having the opportunity to work with your children. Again, welcome and welcome back!
