A new year brings new opportunities. The beginning of a new
year is also a time for resolve and perseverance. As we start 2017, I invite
you to carry your support for the school district forward.
There are many things that make the Binghamton City School District a special place for our students. Each day we work together to meet the academic, social, emotional, behavioral and physical needs of each student. I believe the core of our success at BCSD is our shared belief in partnership. Our district has many partners; students, staff, families, community members, government organizations, non-profits and businesses alike. It is through these partnerships that the district flourishes.
Mahatma Gandhi said “Man often becomes what he believes himself to be.”
Collectively, we believe that we can “Be the Future” for our students. The next edition of B-Today is due out in February. It will highlight some of the outstanding accomplishments of students and faculty in reading, math and social studies. I encourage you to unite with each other, staff and students to celebrate these accomplishments and bring a new momentum to the gains we’ve made as we enter the new year.
Together, we will make 2017 one of our best years yet. I appreciate all you do, and I am thankful that you are a part of the BCSD community.
