Revised 2014 back-to-school immunizations.pdf
Each June, we mark the end of the school year with celebrations and ceremonies.  This year, while June begins with the 70th Anniversary Band Night, our schools celebrate academic excellence at school and board of education awards ceremonies.  There also are transition events like incoming Kindergarten orientation.  Of course, all the students' hard work culminates in Moving Up and graduation ceremonies, ending with the Port Chester High School Commencement on June 26.
Each of these joyful events - many leading to new phases of our students' lives - also mark a transition for parents and guardians who take great pride in the achievements and capabilities of their children, and for the educators who have watched their students learn, reach and grow.  Congratulations to everyone - students, parents and teachers - on this very exciting and meaningful progression. 
Looking ahead, it's not too soon to start planning for a wonderful and safe summer with your children and families while ensuring that your children read daily.

 Edward A. Kliszus, Ph.D., Superintendent of Schools
