Dear Parents/Guardians:
     On behalf of the Board of Education, staff, and administration, it is my pleasure to welcome students and their parents to the 2014-2015 school year.
     We have exciting news from Port Chester High School.  For the first time in decades, students at PCHS will be able to enroll in a full schedule of courses rather than sitting in study halls for up to two periods daily.  This major shift will help ensure that your children are optimally prepared and competitive for entry into the finest colleges and other educational opportunities after high school.
     I also want to thank you for your fine work in advocating for the school district through your letter writing and participation in the on-line petition to our legislators. Your efforts have garnered more than $2 million over the last three years!  Watch for our latest work in this area, as the advocacy for obtaining adequate funding for next year will begin early in the school year.
     Note that our schools offer all the academic and extra-curricular programs your children need for future success.  With your support and their effort, your children can have fantastic choices after graduation.  Most colleges and universities - especially the finest schools - include participation in athletics, community service, clubs, music, theater, and leadership organizations as part of their admissions. Please encourage your children to take part in as many of the extra-curricular activities as they can in addition to doing their best in the classroom.
     Participation in the Parent/Teacher organization of your child's school is one way for you to be involved in your child's education.  I hope that you join your school's PTA or PTO and help with the wonderful events they sponsor, and that you participate in as many PTA/O sponsored events as you can throughout the year.
     Have a wonderful school year!  I am confident that 2014-2015 will be one of the very best.

Dr. Edward A. Kliszus, Superintendent of Schools

From the Principal

Dear Families,

Testing season is upon us once again. Students in grades 3,4, and 5 will be taking the NYS ELA and Mathematics exams in April and May. As we have reviewed with you over the last two years, the degree of difficulty on these exams has risen greatly due to New York's implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Over this time, our teachers and students have worked tirelessly to implement and learn new curricula that aligns to the CCSS.

We will be encouraging students to do their best on the exams, but we also want to be careful not to raise students' anxiety about them as was documented to have happened in other schools across the state last year.

It is very important that children eat nutritious meals on the days leading up to their exams, as well as receive the proper amount of sleep in order to help them to perform optimally. We thank you for all of your efforts in helping your children succeed academically this year.
