Welcome to the start of the 2016-2017 School Year!  As I write this message to you, I begin my eighth year as your principal.  It continues to be a personal and professional privilege to serve our community in this capacity.  The opportunity to work with families and children is one that I cherish beyond measure.  An over-arching theme for this school year is that of communication and family involvement.  The Central York School District is committed to providing you with a level of communication and transparency that most of us did not have when we were in school.  The district is currently implementing a technology solution to meet these needs of communication and transparency.  Skyward is a student information system unlike anything we have ever had as a district.  This parent portal will be your one-stop shop to learning about your child’s school experience.  A unique login will be provided for parents and as the year unfolds and develops, you will learn more about how to access and understand the information provided.

To further enhance communication this school year, I will continue the process of sending you a weekly electronic update.  Always know that if you prefer a hard or paper version, you are welcome to that and need only let our school secretary, Mrs. Zarfos know.  You can follow our school on Facebook and Twitter as well for current information and celebrations of learning!  Additionally, I plan to implement a family forum in a relaxed and casual setting to talk with families about how our schools are changing to meet the needs of every learner.  These forums will be offered both during the school day and in the evening to accommodate a variety of schedules.  I look forward to the possibilities of continuing to partner with families to understand your concerns about education and how we as a school team are working to meet those concerns and expectations of our school community.  More information will be shared as it becomes available regarding these family forums and I hope you can attend at least one during this school year!

The Roundtown teachers and staff are the hardest working educators in the business!  During the past couple years, we have worked to identify a structure that will allow us the opportunity to grow as teachers and truly be able to customize the educational experience.  Our teachers are either in the process of closing out a two-year loop with their class or getting set to pick up a new loop of learners.  This structure continues to afford our learners with a stronger teacher-student and home-school relationship.  Relationships are the key to everything in education.  This year, our teachers will focus on learner engagement.  Keeping our learners engaged is another key to affording success.  As the school year marches forward, I will share more about how we are engaging young learners.     

Again, I like to take this opportunity to let you know how proud I am to be your principal.  Roundtown is my home and each and every child holds a special place in my heart.  The school team is here for you and we value your feedback, opinions, and ideas on how we can grow and continue to meet your needs.  Please follow us on our social media sites including Facebook and Twitter to join in the celebration of our Roundtown Learners and Community!  As always, please know I’m here to support you and listen to you and of course, celebrate your child with you!  It’s a GREAT day to be a Panther!
