I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to the entire Sackets Harbor School Community on the warm and thoughtful welcome I have received. I am so pleased and excited to join such a successful school system.
As I have been familiarizing myself with the building and meeting the students, faculty, and staff, it is so evident of the wonderful things that are in place here at Sackets Harbor. I have already enjoyed visiting the Bronx Zoo via video conferencing with the third graders, compliments of the Sackets Harbor PTO, attended basketball games and cheered on our Frontier League Champion Lady and Men Patriots, as well as meeting many kindergarten parents during the kindergarten reading night.
We are so fortunate to have strong community support, talented and dedicated faculty and staff and terrific students at Sackets Harbor. I continue to see the ownership of the strong character education program established here at Sackets and the willingness of everyone to adhere, embrace and cultivate a climate of respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, and caring. Our mission is to create experiences and learning opportunities that foster the values of outstanding citizens. We are on the right track for success and promote and empower everyone to use these life lessons and virtues.
It is such an exciting time for us all in the Sackets Community. We continue to plan and ready ourselves for the completion of the building project initiative during the next several months. With this project we continue to move forward to provide new and improved facilities to our students. Our Board of Education is dedicated to provide the best learning opportunities and programs for Sackets children and young adults under the responsible financial means available. These individuals have the best interest of our future at hand.
Our school is the centerpiece of this community. I am proud to serve as the superintendent and look forward to fostering and building on the successes of our students. Thank you for supporting our school, embracing the importance of a sound education, and celebrating the successes of all our students. They are all unique individuals, brought together in a common place to learn and grow. It is our job, as the adults, parents and community members of Sackets Harbor to work collaboratively, collegially and respectfully to ensure the best possible success for all. Thank you for the opportunity of working with all of you.
Frederick E. Hall, Jr.
Superintendent of Schools
