Raise the Bar

This week five of our outstanding high school students were recognized at the thirtieth annual South Coast Conference Academic All-Star Banquet. The five Apponequet Regional High School students recognized for their outstanding academic performance were: Nicole Bouzan, Shannon Carmichael, Hannah Darling, Owen Foster, and Leanne Kendall. Congratulations to all five individuals and good luck next year as you begin your college careers.     

          I will continue to use the One-Call Communication System to provide families with the necessary school cancellation and delay information.  Please keep in mind that my decision will be based on multiple reliable sources, including multiple town contacts, and will focus on the safety for all children and adults. There are only 39 school days left and our last day is, Friday, June 22, 2018.             

As the FY 19 budget season moves toward town meetings on June 4, 2018, we will look to your support as we provide appropriate resources to meet our growing educational needs. Our recent success will only continue if we meet our monetary commitment to “raise the bar” in both towns. The updated budget hearing presentation is now on the website.The next school committee meeting will be held, Wednesday, May 9, 2018.

I look forward to our continued drive toward excellence, as we raise the bar for all students.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call 508-923-2000 ext. 1703 or email me at rmedeiros@freelake.org.
