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
