Randolph Learning Community,
We are continuing to have an amazing school year. I am grateful that we have so much to celebrate, and I have included a few highlights from October below.
To read or see more positive news, I encourage families and community members to follow our district on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In addition, our Board of Education meetings are a great opportunity to learn more about other news and developments happening in the district. The input of families and community members are valuable, and public participation in meetings is an opportunity to hear new ideas and perspectives. If you are not able to attend a meeting in person, meetings can be accessed via live stream as well as after our meetings.
As the month of October closes, we look ahead to November. On November 8, Election Day will be held where three Board seats will be available to serve three-year terms. During the week of November 7-11, we will join schools throughout the United States in celebrating the important work school psychologists and other educators do to help all students thrive. The 2022 National School Psychology Week theme, "Together We Shine," celebrates hope after several challenging years, reconnecting with others, and re-establishing the sense of being valued parts of a greater whole, which empowers students and adults to find purpose and possibility.
In addition, we will also celebrate American Education Week November 13-19. The National Education Association was one of the creators and original sponsors of this important week which is always celebrated the week prior to Thanksgiving. At our Board of Education meeting on October 18, the Board made a special proclamation celebrating the upcoming week. Randolph Education Association (REA) President Sandy Kessell was in attendance to accept the proclamation on behalf of all of our educators. All of our educators are superheroes, and we are so proud to recognize and celebrate all that they do.
In addition to the the robust academic, athletic, artistic and extracurricular opportunities we offer our students; fall activities and events will be abundant as we get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving on November 25. We have so much to be thankful for!
Have a wonderful start to the new month!
Jennifer Fano, Superintendent of Schools
