Summer has been going by way too fast. I look forward to sharing plans for the new school year in this space in late August. We are gearing up for a year of helping, healing, and hope.
Here are a few of the events that have been part of a productive summer:
Our administrative teams and many of our teachers have been busy this summer working on curriculum and have had the chance to participate in a wide variety of professional development opportunities. We have strengthened our intervention and referral services and have expanded our multi-tiered system of support, to ensure that each and every student receives the support they need to succeed. In addition, we have provided professional development and intensive, ongoing training for our case managers who work with students who have Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs).
Our schools served as home to our vibrant and extensive summer program. Hundreds of students and dozens of teachers, support staff, bus drivers and administrators operated summer enrichment, transition programs, accelerated learning and interdisciplinary experiences addressing the summer learning needs of all of our students. We welcomed Mercer County Educational Specialist, Ms. Rosario Casiano, who conducted a special visit to PPS in recognition of our summer instructional program.
We have also used the summer months to improve our facilities. A new wing of classrooms and collaborative spaces will open at Princeton High School in the fall and both Littlebrook and Community Park will have new roofing when school opens in September.
We are excited to welcome students back to our schools on September 6. Please enjoy the last weeks of the summer holiday.
