Office of the Superintendent
I begin my first column for this publication by expressing my deep and sincere appreciation for being selected by the Board of Education to serve as the new Superintendent of Revere Local Schools. It is an honor to be part of a district with such a long history of educational and community excellence. The commitment of our faculty, staff, Board of Education, and communities is indeed impressive and applauded.
One of my first goals will be meeting staff, students, and the community. I have started that process throughout the past several weeks during my transition. I’ve had the opportunity to tour buildings, meet employees, work with the Revere Schools Foundation, and watch some amazingly successful spring athletic performances. The entire community can and should revel in the recent accomplishments of our softball and baseball teams.
By the time you read this, Revere students will have been out of school for almost a month. If you are a parent, you have probably asked your child to put down the electronic devices more times than you can count. Perhaps the pleas to get outside, read a book, or play a game are getting redundant. Continue to enjoy the beautiful days of summer. Time is fleeting and before we know it, a new school year will begin.
While you are navigating home life, we will be busy preparing for the 2021-22 school year. Certainly, we hope this year will be much easier for all than was this past pandemic filled year. We are looking forward to introducing new employees, the return of many events and traditions that make a school year so memorable, and partnering with our Revere communities. Before long, you’ll be receiving information about class lists, school bus schedules, meet and greet events, and everything else that accompanies the start of a new school year. Be sure to check the website at www.revereschools.org for updated information and please, please, please complete your child’s FinalForms.
Thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and introductions. I am thrilled to be your superintendent of schools and eager to implement the deliverables outlined in the community-driven Vision of a Minuteman and the accompanying goals within the Strategic Plan. The four main goal areas of the Strategic Plan are: Student Agency; Innovative Curriculum; Parent, Community and Alumni Engagement; and Facilities, Finance and Human Resource Stewardship. These goal areas provide clarity and direction for moving the district forward, embracing continuous improvement, and branding a school system that you will be proud of and celebrate.
Revere pride - Catch It!
