Good afternoon, parents, guardians, and members of the Newmarket community,
It has been a very busy short week and I wanted to share two things with you before the weekend begins.
First, just a reminder that the Lip Sync Lockdown video will air on Channel 13 tonight at 5:15 PM. Please take twenty minutes to enjoy our performers belting out their favorite tunes.
Second, the School Reopening Steering Committee met twice this week to develop a values statement that will be used to guide decision making throughout the planning process. The Committee is also developing a survey to gather some preliminary information from staff, parents/guardians, and students. The staff and student survey will be sent out next week, but the parent/guardian survey has been completed. Please take some time over the next week to complete this survey. Understanding your needs, concerns, and preferences is an important part of the process for developing a plan for our community. The survey should not take more than 5 minutes to complete per child.
Note: Some of you may have completed a state-wide survey recently. This data is not available to us locally. The survey above is specific to our community.
We are almost to the end of the school year. Hang in there and take it one day at a time!
Susan K. Givens, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
