Welcome to the weekly update!

I want to thank the community members who joined us at Heim Middle School Thursday night for our first Speaker Series on Restorative Educational Practices. It’s great to have an active school community, ready to engage in positive discourse and learn more about initiatives in our schools. We will continue to have these Speaker Series, with an event on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and one with Kids Escaping Drugs. Keep an eye out for information on when those Speaker Series will take place!

Earlier this week, we shared information regarding the District’s after-school bus pilot program. Please be sure to review the letter and informational sheet sent home. We want to reiterate that students will be required to sign-up for an after-school bus by noon on the Tuesdays and Thursdays they are available. This is critical as our Transportation Department maps out after-school bus routes for these students on that day. We will send another reminder as the first date of implementation gets closer.

Finally, last week I was on the Erie Niagara School Superintendent Association podcast with Brian Graham, the Superintendent of the Grand Island School District, to chat about inclusion, our unified sports programs, and their continued growth in our schools. From bowling, basketball, and volleyball these are incredible, life-changing opportunities for our school community members to be involved with.

I especially want to give a shoutout to Tracy Fitzpatrick and Dan Greiner for the advocacy and work they do with our student-athletes and unified sports programs on a daily basis. If you haven’t had an opportunity to listen to the podcast, it’s available in the ​Weekly Newsletter. If you’d like to join or support our unified programs, be sure to reach out to your respective building for additional information on how to get involved.

Another big playoff weekend for the Bills!

Thanks for all that you do! We’ll see you next week!
