Summer Update

New MBA Assistant Principal
On June 24, the Board of Education appointed Michael McDonnell as the new Assistant Principal of Mabelle B. Avery Middle School.  Mr. McDonnell has been a teacher at Somers Elementary School for the past 16 years.  He was the standout candidate from the 95 applicants for the position.  We are very excited he will be joining our administrative team that will help move our school district forward.

First Day of School
I know it is still early in the summer, but we wanted to let parents know the first day of school will be on Thursday, August 29.  This is a change from previous years as the first day was on a Wednesday.  The change will allow us to provide teachers with meaningful professional development at a critical time in support of our Strategic Plan.
