Wyandanch School District steps up to the plate for a successful 2022-2023 school year
The Wyandanch Union Free School District administrators, teachers and staff are ready to hit the 2022-2023 school year out of the park after the completion of the district’s Superintendent’s Conference Day. This year’s theme was “Let’s Hit a Grand Slam to Destination Graduation.”
Encouraging all to wear apparel of their favorite baseball team, the Superintendent’s Conference Day brought everyone together with excitement and enthusiasm.
Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Gina Talbert welcomed the teachers right off the bat and reminded them of the district’s goal to educate the whole child and help them foster a love for learning. Adhering to the district’s goal will allow scholars to hit a home run at every stage of their educational journey, ultimately allowing them to hit a grand slam at high school graduation.
“The district’s philosophy of educating the whole child ensures that all scholars have every opportunity to acquire the skills needed to be successful in their educational journeys. It gives them the opportunity to celebrate diversity, to be advocates for those less fortunate and to become leaders of the future within their community and beyond,” said Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Gina Talbert. “As we begin a new school year let’s continue to motivate our scholars and work together toward one common goal, a grand slam to destination graduation!”
With districtwide and individual school goals and missions set, teachers and staff excitedly prepared their classrooms by planning fun first-day-of-school lessons and hanging colorful decorations.
“Our teachers and staff are ready to welcome our scholars, and I am personally very eager to meet each of them,” said Milton L. Olive Middle School’s new principal, Dr. Shannon Burton. “We are going to ensure that our scholars have a great year as we focus on their education in all aspects — from academics to social-emotional health; so, they may grow into successful, fulfilled individuals.”
Wyandanch Union Free School District administrators and staff are looking forward to another successful school year.
