September 2018Dear Cromwell Community-
We are excited to have started the 2018-19 school year and be spending the active days with our students and staff. Our commitment to vision outlined in the Cromwell Public School’s Strategic Framework remains strong as we establish collective goals that allow all of us to maximize our potential. The Strategic Framework contains five competencies that include the following:
- Supporting Systematic Practices
- Learning Practices
- Assessment Practices
- Instructional Practices
- Climate and Cultural Practices
Each competency includes goals and objectives that further highlight our focus for areas that include, but are not limited to the growth, safety, and well-being for all within the Cromwell Public Schools. For further details, and to access the Strategic Framework in its entirety, please refer to our district webpage
Spotlight on New Cromwell Staff
We are pleased to welcome the new staff members to the Cromwell Public Schools and look forward to fostering a collaborative relationship that supports the teaching and learning vision within our district. Our new staff members participated in a new teacher orientation in August and will be attending a September Board meeting along with a reception.
With the school year underway, please drive carefully, as the streets will be busy with students and families walking, biking, and busing to and from the school buildings. In addition, for those students riding buses, please be prepared to board the bus on arrival so schedules remain on time and traffic is reduced to a minimum.
As we move through the school year, I will be continuing our Community Conversations that are a venue to dialogue about various pertinent topics pertaining to our district. Dates will be sent out through our electronic messaging system as well as posted on the website.
As always, your involvement with and support of the Cromwell Public Schools is appreciated and valued. I look forward to continuing our partnership as we strive to provide opportunities for our students that will support their future successes.
John T. Maloney, Jr.
Superintendent of Schools
