Dear SCUSD Learners and Learning support teams (families),
Please remember that effective today, there is no pencil sharpening allowed on school property. So please devote at least a half hour to sharpening your pencils that you intend to transport to school property on Monday!
A Note from Dr. Flanagans, Superintendent of SCUSCD
Educators community leaders, and heads of various organizations frequently come to see for themselves what has been described as a, “Remarkable story of transformation.” By the time this book went to publication, the Sylvester County Unified School District had attracted hundreds of visitors from all over the world. Leaders visit Sylvester to observe and have conversations related to diversity, inclusion, implementation of transdisciplinary curriculum, technology initiatives, enhanced co-curricular offerings, instructional coaching, restorative practices, and more. Guests note that from the moment they arrive in the city, they are greeted with, and surrounded by, love. Dr. Flanagans shares his inspiring account of a cultural transformation taking place here at Sylvester County Unified School District.
“Please Be Mindful that Scholars May Not Wear Open Toe Shoes.” To enforce the rule, Ms. Agatha Glorioso will be at the entrance to inspect that all Scholar Footwear is appropriate. At lunch time, Cafeteria Supervisor Frances Franitelli will give a ten minute talk about Foot Wear, Hygiene, and Safe Food Handling Practices.
On behalf of the great staff and educator staff at Willard Collegiate Middle School, thanks and have a great weekend!
Principal Dr. Kevin Calvins, EdD
“A Great School is a Great Place to Learn!”
-Dr. Kevin Calvins, EdD, Educating by Educations: An Analysis of School-based Learning
As per our decision of the School Board and in compliance with State regulations and under the guidance of experts at the Willard College School of Education, Sylvester County Unified School District has canceled the 2018 Spring Break that had normally been scheduled for next week and we therefore advise immediate cancellation of any planned travel and remind you that youth learners who are absent next week will make up the lost days during the fourth week of the summer break.
