Superintendent's Message 3/8/19

Yesterday, I met with the Superintendent’s Student Cabinet for another engaging discussion. We were joined by Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner, and it was a great opportunity for us to bridge the gap between our schools and the community. Chief Buckner spoke about how success is never achieved alone – but by having someone help you. I am appreciative of the involvement of our students, staff and the greater Syracuse community at events like this, because together, we are Building Our Future for #SCSDSuccess!
In case you missed it, the P-TECH program at ITC was featured live on Bridge Street this week. Our friends at C&S Companies have been a great partner in the P-TECH program, helping our students become career ready; and they sponsored the S.T.E.A.M. Matters segment in which our students were highlighted.
This week’s #SCSDLookBack video features a Black History Month Living Wax Museum at Delaware, students and staff from the Building Men Program attending the Vera House breakfast, students attending VEX Robotics state championships, Franklin students learning about astronomy, family engagement at Huntington, Van Duyn math collaborations and more. As always, share your good news with us on Twitter by tagging @SyracuseSchools and using #SCSDSuccess.
Finally, this weekend, don’t miss your chance to support Corcoran High School students as they perform their spring musical, Little Shop of Horrors. The show will be performed tonight and tomorrow night at 7 pm. I also hope you’ll consider joining us at Corcoran tomorrow morning beginning at 9:30 for a conversation about the state of education for black and brown students in Syracuse. We’ll have an abundance of workshops, and I am eager to discuss this important topic. It’s not too late to register!
