Dear Princeton Residents:
We welcome the new 2016-17 school year and celebrate the start of another productive and exciting year in Princeton as we meet the challenges of educating our students and continuing our efforts to provide academic excellence and extracurricular achievements for all our students. It takes all of us—teachers, support staff and administrators to give our students the knowledge and support they need to be successful. We are all a part of the Princeton team.
As residents of the district, our students need our support and encouragement in all of their endeavors. With everything that is happening in our world, we have to come together as a community to guide and protect our children and let them know they can achieve anything they set their minds to. The Princeton City School District is one that believes education is the key to unlock any door in life. Our children will face many challenges in their lives and a good education should not be one of them.
This academic school year, transparency and communication with our staff and our public remain critical. So, too, does the continued work on our very important goals and initiatives as we collectively focus on the work ahead. As you will remember, last year’s theme was “Commit, Connect, and Contribute.” This year we will be adding another “C”-- “Customer Service.”
I implore you, if you are not already active in your school community, it is not too late. If you are a parent, our schools are always looking for volunteers; we urge you to stay connected to your students’ teachers and administrators. You will be amazed at the impact you will have not only on the lives of your children but also the lives of others around them.
Please call any time to arrange a visit to our schools and join us for our outstanding music and athletic events. I look forward to meeting you.
Thomas Tucker, Ph.D.
