Today, Owen J. Roberts staff gathered to begin the official preparation for the 2016-2017 school year. Staff was welcomed by Board of School Directors President Mrs. Pamela Wolfe, who spoke on behalf of the entire board, and by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Christian.
There was much excitement in the air as each of us prepares to greet students on Monday, August 29.
Thanks to our facilities, maintenance and technology departments, the buildings are ready for our opening and welcoming students on August 29, 2016. Students will be eager to learn, and we will be ready for them.
Highlights of this summer include:
- Over 200 teachers participated in the third annual Technology Academy and over 700 devices will be deployed for student/teacher use this year. 30 projectors were replaced throughout the district. Many new network infrastructure projects took place to improve connectivity.
- Over 400 students participated in academic and recreation camps this summer. We were thrilled to see so many teachers and students enjoying music, art, games, fishing, and more!
- New teachers and support staff have been hired in preparation for the new year.
- The construction of the new East Vincent Elementary School is progressing nicely. Additionally, we have received final approval for East Coventry and are out to bid!
