• A Message from the Superintendent

    Last week during the visit of Malcolm Mitchell to the Tilton school, where he read to the first grade students and to all first grade students in the city via a telecast – one of our teachers went up and asked if he could have his photo taken with him. He began the request by saying “I’m really not an important person but I’d love to have my picture taken with you.” Malcolm Mitchell immediately responded … “Don’t say that you are not important, you are the reason I am here, because of people like you that have turned my life around – had patience and understanding – taught me to read and helped me to get into college and ultimately allowed me to be honored with a position on the New England Patriots…”

     So this week across the nation we say thank you and  we recognize the hard work, the care, and compassion of so many teachers across this great country of ours. On behalf of so many in the City of Haverhill and beyond – Thank you…
    Also this week – we recognize our nurses – for they like our teachers – help mend the wounds, both physical and emotional, with a special blend of love and kindness. In our schools and in our health care institutions, it is the nurse that goes that extra mile to make sure our needs are met. Now matter how small a wound may be on a first grade child’s finger or during a crisis when seconds count – it is the nurse that is there with skill and confidence. Therefore, we all need to pause and reflect on the kindly care from such a talented group that has at one point or another in our lives – touched us in such a caring and gentle way…
    As we go through this week – take a moment to look within and appreciate the pride that is so evident on your faces as you see the success of your efforts in helping others…
    Thank you all…and God Bless you…
