• A Message from the Superintendent

    Good morning,

    This coming Sunday we celebrate a very special day.  On May 9, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson who allegedly is called the father of Mother’s Day signed a proclamation declaring the second Sunday of May as a time for public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country. I remember well that morning of March 15th 2005 when my beloved Mom was called home…my best friend and the “force” that made me get to school…gave me the “look” when I goofed up…and I certainly got my fair share of those…but above all her unending support and love and her  constant reminders to me of the importance of doing my very best every day to help, understand, recognize the good in each and advocate for children entrusted to our care… 
     
    As I go through the schools…over and over again…I see so many of you doing just that… I see your smiles…I see you hug, comfort, encourage, and support…I hear the gentleness in your voices and I sense the heartbreak in your heart when a child faces a tragic moment in their young lives. There is no manual for Moms … the are no Cliff Notes…your ending love just keeps surfacing…
     
    So this weekend on your special day we recognize you…but there is not a day that goes by when that special love…A Mother’s love is not felt…
     
    We must also remember that for some, this day has a void in some young families…I have watched one young family for a number of years here navigate their way through our schools without their beloved Mom who was called home way too early in life…and Dad filled both roles…despite a demanding and dangerous job… Dad became Mom and Dad…at every event…traveling to away games etc…just always there…just an awesome individual…
     
    So to those men in our schools who have filled a void and like so many Moms that just keep on giving…we salute you…with appreciation and love…
     
    Moms…Thank you for so much…your love and gentle ways at home and in our schools is so cherished and appreciated…many will never forget you…
     
    To all who have been a Mom to so many…my prayer is that God will continue to bless you…Thank you and Happy Mothers Day

  • 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…
