Dear Roundtown Families & Friends,
Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year! In looking ahead to the upcoming school year, it excites me to think about what is next! The past two summers have been a blur and were spent primarily planning for Covid-type responses and what remote learning would look like. While I know Covid will continue to hinder us from time to time, I am confident that the school can recover quickly and shift gears if necessary. I am most excited to get back to school-wide assemblies, community meetings, all-pro dad breakfasts, muffins with moms, field trips, and that feeling we all get when the whole school comes together! I really believe that has been a missing piece for our school these past two years. I am also excited to kick-off a new math program for our learners this year that I believe will ensure a consistent and high-quality approach to our K-3 mathematics instruction.
If you are new to the Roundtown Family, then it is my pleasure to welcome you and you may expect a weekly update from me highlighting events from the week and sharing important events for the following week(s). Each Friday afternoon, you will receive such an update via a Skyward email from me. For those families returning, I greatly look forward to communicating with you again on a weekly basis to share the details of our wonderful school!
Each year that goes by, seems to go quicker and quicker for me as principal. This year, I am celebrating my 14th year at Roundtown and I could not be happier! I have several points to share with you regarding our school. These points drive our work and conversations as a faculty and staff and I hope you will not only experience them as you visit, but embrace them with us!
•Our school is safe because we practice safety and follow designated plans for safety.
•Our school welcomes and values EVERYONE! EVERYONE matters!
•Our school is dedicated to providing high-quality instruction to meet the needs of ALL our learners.
•Our school believes social learning is just as important as academic learning and considers developmental growth.
•Our school understands and values the importance of communicating with our families.
•Our school wants you to be involved as a classroom or PTO volunteer.
•Our school believes learning should be engaging and fun!
I look forward to working with you during another great school year. Please know I am here to assist in any way and my contact information can be found below. I hope you will join us for our first opportunity to celebrate the school and your child's new classroom on Thursday, September 8th for our annual Back to School Night. More details will be coming for this special evening. Regards for a memorable and meaningful school year!Fondly, Matt Miller, Ed.D.
