SUPERINTENDENT DR. KURTIS KOTES
How could it possibly be September already? The summer seems to have passed so quickly and it is hard to believe that today we have welcomed back our students for the 2019-2020 school year!
As we greeted the busses at all four of our buildings this morning, it was wonderful to see all of our students’ faces as they returned for what promises to be another exciting and fulfilling school year. From the high school student who showed signs of wonder and excitement regarding the prospects of graduation to the kindergarten student who shed a tear from being away from their parent for the first time, the beginning of the school year reminds all of us of this purpose that we serve. We greatly value the trust that you put in each and every one of us when sending your children to be educated and prepared for the challenges of the world every day. This is a responsibility that we all value so deeply as educators in the Mount Pleasant Central School District. As Superintendent, I promise, again, to do everything I can to support a safe, healthy and productive learning environment for every child in the community.
I stand confident that when your children return home today that they will bring you a message that reflects a positive first day. I have encouraged all of our teachers to make every effort to engage your children deeply in the material that your children will be learning as soon as possible. Show our students the joy that exists in learning and provide them an opportunity to flourish in the moment that they walk into the classroom. I hope that you will partner with us while talking and listening to your children about their school day. From kindergarten through twelfth grade, every child wants to be heard and share their experiences and there is no greater advocate for them besides you, the parents and guardians. Our teachers and administrators look forward to strengthening our partnership and relationship to best serve every student in all of our schools.
Please be on the lookout for important material that will come home with your children today. All students received a copy of the district calendar today. I know this is important to many households. You can also view our district calendar online at mtplcsd.org. Please also review any material with your children that may have to be returned to school. Many teachers share contact information and important subjects and dates in writing during the first days of school.
Finally, if you have not taken notice, the work on our current capital improvement project made great progress throughout the summer. Columbus Elementary and the Westlake Campus underwent the most work this summer. Westlake Middle School and Hawthorne Elementary will receive the last round of updates during the Summer and Fall of 2020. I cannot thank you enough for your support of our facilities. A clean, modern and up to date learning space fosters student success and your support of our 2016 Capital Improvement Bond was a major step in the right direction for our facilities. Thank you!
I wish every family and every student a wonderful school year. I look forward to seeing our students and our families in classrooms and events! Reach for the stars students! The future is yours for the taking!
All the best-
