May Superintendent's Message

“Look back and be grateful. Look ahead and be hopeful. Look around and be helpful.”



It’s hard to believe that May is upon us, and the school year is almost done. The month of May is a time for new beginnings, which is very much welcomed and appreciated after a difficult winter. It also begins a very busy time of year here at RCS, with many trips, programs, banquets, and other events scheduled to celebrate a year’s worth of achievements and learning. I look forward to all the wonderful activities we have planned.

May is also the month for the annual budget vote. Early next week you will be receiving a mailer from us that outlines next year’s budget. This mailer will outline exciting new and continuing programs for next year, and will list the three candidates that are vying for next year’s Board of Education seat: the incumbent Ed Sanford, Denise Johnston, and Sabrina Miraglio. The important dates to remember are May 2nd, which is the Annual Budget Hearing at 7:30 in the Cafetorium, and May 16th, which is the date of the vote, from 3-9 PM in the Cafetorium. Please note that the May 2nd hearing is your opportunity to see the budget presentation and to ask any questions or make comments about the budget. If you do not receive a mailer prior to the May 2nd meeting, please contact this office and we will get you one. It is also available for viewing on our website.

Finally, I hope you take some time during this beautiful spring season to enjoy our beautiful mountains with your children, family and friends. Get outside and walk, hike or ride a bike; or support our school by attending a baseball or softball game, or watching a tennis match or attending a concert. Get involved in your children’s activities, and participate in some of the many activities going on throughout this month. Also, I would like to encourage you to exercise your right to vote on May 16th and let your voice be heard. And don’t forget to visit our website frequently (www.roxburycs.org) , and follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-the-minute information about what’s happening at RCS. As always, I am always available for any questions or comments you may have.
