Dear Franklin Pierce Families and Community Members,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

If you are new to the district, let me assure you, you are in good hands. The finest teachers and support staff in the state are here to guide your students on their learning journey.  For those returning, welcome back. This is going to be a great year.

Our vision is to ensure that every student graduates from high school prepared to succeed in post-secondary education. Each day we will help your child move toward making this his or her reality. No matter what kind of post-secondary experience is in your student’s future, our dedicated staff are committed to working alongside your student while he or she strives to succeed academically, socially and emotionally. Our core business is to engage all students in rigorous, relevant, high quality work.

I also want you to know that every child is an important and welcome part of who we are as a learning community.  We have one of the most diverse communities in the country, and we celebrate that diversity.  As the year moves along, please help your child share his or her cultural story with school mates and staff.  The better we know each other, the more we will grow together.

I look forward to meeting many of you as we work together to make this an exciting and productive year. As a former teacher in this district, and more recently as assistant superintendent, I know how lucky I am to be serving you in the Franklin Pierce School District. It is truly an honor to be your new Superintendent!
