Good afternoon, parents, guardians, and members of the Newmarket community,
You made it through the week and now it is time to relax and enjoy the long weekend ahead. Before the weekend begins, I wanted to share some important updates and information but first, here are the NES and JSHS Guess Who answer keys.
Search for more Mules and Mini Mules
In addition to supporting students, many staff have given time to participate in the screening process for open faculty and administrative positions this spring. We have successfully completed the hiring process for fourteen educators. Last night the School Board confirmed the nomination for two more teachers. Please join us in welcoming the following Mules to our learning community.
The screening committee for the Assistant Superintendent has completed their work and has moved Nathan Byrne and Debra Armfield Black forward as finalists. Next week the Leadership Team will interview these candidates and conduct reference checks. We hope to announce the new Assistant Superintendent the following week.
School Reopening Steering Committee and Work Group Planning
The steering committee will begin the reopening planning process on Tuesday, May 26th. The agenda for this meeting includes identifying core values and beliefs to guide decision-making. If time permits, the committee will begin developing a questionnaire to gather data from staff, students, and parents about their experience with remote learning this year. If you are interested in learning more about the process, workplan and members of the various workgroups, click here.
Memorial Day message from Supermule
On behalf of Supermule and the Newmarket School District, we would like to encourage you to take time to reflect and remember all the brave men and women whose lives were lost protecting our wonderful country. In these trying times, it is important not to lose sight of the life we are afforded because of these heroes. Our gratitude runs deep this weekend, and every day, because of the selfless acts of so many veterans. Thank you, have a safe and fun long weekend, but don’t forget the reasons why we are able to enjoy these freedoms.
In gratitude for all your hard work. Unplug, relax, and have some fun!
Susan K. Givens, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
