Superintendent's Corner September
Hello Medford Lakes and welcome back! I hope that your summer was full of fun, family and relaxation. As we begin to set the alarms a bit earlier and make the effort to get back into the swing of things, there are a few important dates to keep in mind. Tuesday, September 6th is the first day back for students. This will be an early dismissal day with Neeta dismissing at 12:09 p.m. and Nokomis dismissing at 12:23 p.m. The first full day of school will be Wednesday, September 7th with Neeta dismissing at 3:09 p.m. and Nokomis dismissing at 3:23 p.m. Our September Board of Education meeting will be on Wednesday, September 21st in the Neeta School library at 6:30 p.m. Finally, our Back to School Nights will be from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm on Monday, September 19th – Nokomis and Tuesday, September 20th – Neeta.
For those parents interested in being more involved, please attend the Home and School Association (HSA) meeting on Thursday, September 8th, at 6:30 pm in the Neeta Library and the Medford Lakes Education Foundation (MLEF) meeting on Monday, September 26th, at 7:00 pm in the Neeta Library. Both of these organizations go above and beyond to provide our students with numerous opportunities, programs and materials. If you are looking to get your child involved in athletics, please keep an eye out for the Neeta Sports Association’s email blast. Sign-up information, practice dates and game schedules can be found by using the link to their website on our district homepage. I cannot thank all three organizations enough for their efforts.
Our staff and I are looking forward to another year of working with you and your students. Thank you all in advance for your continued support and we hope you have a great 2016-17 school year!
