Superintendent's Message to Staff - 6/15/18

This week, we celebrated our SCSD Class of 2018! Students from Corcoran, Henninger, ITC, Nottingham and PSLA at Fowler shared their top goal in life after SCSD graduation, and I encourage you to take a few minutes to watch this inspiring video of their responses.
Our younger students also took the time to celebrate this year’s graduates by hosting graduation walks. ITC seniors visited Webster, Grant, LeMoyne and other schools; PSLA at Fowler seniors visited Porter, Bellevue and others; Henninger seniors stopped by Salem Hyde, Lincoln, Franklin and others; and don’t miss this great video of Corcoran seniors getting an enthusiastic welcome at Van Duyn. These walk-through are a great opportunity for our young students to be inspired by our graduating seniors, and for our graduating seniors to be celebrated for their hard work!
Thursday evening, we celebrated our Adult Education students at their #SCSDGraduation. These individuals have so worked hard and some have overcome extraordinary circumstances to get to this point and we are so proud of them.
We also took the time this week to recognize our Retirees and Years of Service employees at a reception at LeMoyne College. This annual event is a great way for us to recognize the commitment of these dedicated individuals and the impact they have made on our district.
On Tuesday, our KiloWatch groups gathered at the Professional Development Center to present the district with a mock check for $15,000 – the approximate savings they helped achieve thanks to their monitoring and marketing in their school buildings. It is inspiring to see our students so passionate about helping our district become more energy efficient, and I look forward to seeing their continued efforts next year!
This week I had the opportunity to attend the Vera House Annual Luncheon where they recognized Pam Janack, Health teacher at Henninger High School.  She was presented with a 2018 Special Appreciation Award.  I also attended the Onondaga Citizens Annual Luncheon this week where they recognized Joyce Suslovic, Social Studies teacher at Henninger High School.  She was recognized for her work to impact and influence civic engagement for the students and families of Syracuse.
Finally, this week’s #SCSDLookBack video features Flag Day celebrations, a multicultural festival at LeMoyne Elementary, the 8th grade semi-formal at Grant, Van Duyn students cleaning up the neighborhood around their school, Bellevue students enjoying an overnight camping trip at Orenda Springs, Dr. King students visiting Howe Caverns, Frazer students enjoying an Attendance Celebration and more.
