2017-18 OPENING DAY: WELCOME BACK FACULTY AND STAFF!


They are back and ready to go! Early Friday morning, over 500 faculty and staff members filed into the middle school cafeteria amid hugs and cheerful chatter for the opening day of the new school year. They enjoyed a breakfast spread before gathering in the school auditorium for the Superintendent’s Conference.

Superintendent Brian C. Monahan offered thanks to the entire school community, with special mention for buildings and grounds and technology teams, administrative staff, and everyone who gave part of their summer to engage in curriculum work and professional development.

After introducing all district and building administrators, Mr. Monahan invited faculty and staff to look back at the many achievements and highlights of the past school year, before looking at new opportunities and exciting changes in the year ahead.

“We want you to be the best you can be for all our students,” Mr. Monahan said, as he announced some of the new resources and supports for teachers and staffers in the coming year.

During the conference, the District welcomed all sixty-two new faculty and staff members, and recognized employees celebrating their 25th anniversary in Minisink Valley, among others.

Mr. Monahan closed with reflections on words by Christine Gregoire: “Education is the foundation upon which we build our future.”

WELCOME BACK and a great year to all!
