The start of every school year is an exciting time of new opportunities and challenges for students and educators. I am pleased to be joining Neshaminy as the district embarks on a series of forward-thinking initiatives that will propel us to higher levels of excellence while providing the tools our children need to succeed in 21st Century.
During the 2014-2015 school year, Neshaminy launched full-day kindergarten, which has been a major success. Additionally we launched a new reading program for the middle schools, added Advanced Placement courses in the high school, applied Next Generation science standards at all grade levels, and took a direct path to the future with increased curricular and co-curricular STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programing. The district held its first-ever STEM Expo in May attracting hundreds of families.
