Dear Kutztown Area School District Families,
On behalf of the Kutztown Area School District Board of Directors and Administration, we are honored to welcome parents, teachers, staff, and more than 1,300 students back to our schools. For parents/guardians whose children are entering our schools for the first time, a special welcome and heartfelt thank you for the trust you have placed in our school district. For our returning families, welcome back and thank you for your continued support. I hope you have enjoyed a restful and relaxing summer spent with family and friends.
This summer, we have been busy getting ready for an exciting school year. Teachers and staff have spent the summer eagerly preparing for your child's return, and we look forward to sharing new learning experiences with each of you. We have several new teachers joining an experienced and talented group of educators that we are fortunate to have in our classrooms and schools. Our teachers and staff bring their passion and expertise to their classroom with the goal to challenge your child while encouraging creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. These lifelong skills will serve your child well in the future.
I would encourage each and every family to be engaged in your child's education. There are many opportunities to be involved including joining our parent-teacher organizations, booster group membership, and volunteering in our schools. If your schedule does not allow for that level of involvement, we would encourage you to visit our sporting events, musical performances, plays, drama performances, art shows, and much, much more. If you have other ideas about how you can partner with us, please contact your child's building principal. We are committed to a strong partnership between home and school.
Our first day of school is Monday, August 28th for all students. You can find our one-page district calendar here for your reference. Please visit your building web page for important dates and events throughout the year.
Thank you for your continued support of our students and school district. Welcome back and have a wonderful school year!
George F. Fiore, Ed.D., Superintendent
