State Education Department creates engageNY.org to support the implementation of key aspects of the Board of Regents Reform Agenda
Superintendent devoted 46-year career to alma mater
The LHS school year seems to go by very quickly with the months of May and June arriving so fast. Examinations are nearing, which means our students, together with their teachers, are busy preparing for the review process as well as project completion.
The School Budget vote is set for May 21st at the High School from 7:00am until 9:00pm. The proposed budget tries to balance fiscal responsibility with sound educational philosophy. There are two board of education seats open as well. One of the best facets of American democracy is our constitutional right to vote and I implore you to execute yours on May 21st.
On the student front, new leaders in various organizations will be elected. Plans are in place for inductions, award ceremonies, and end of the year social events. Before we know it graduation will be here. On that note, I have a serious message to parents of seniors. There is no such thing as a school sanctioned senior skip day. Please advise your senior to attend school each and every day until graduation.
Springtime for all students is a time to exhibit care and intelligence. Very simply, all students need to be smart, be careful, and make sound and wise decisions as they approach school, the prom, and other activities. Be extra careful when any of these activities are combined with driving or being a passenger in a car. We have worked very hard to make sure the prom will be affordable, safe and fun. Some activities we have planned to support this include a simulator regarding impaired driving, and an assembly involving a demonstration from Mercy Flight. Parents, please continue to team with us and talk to your son or daughter about making good choices.
As we enter the last two months of the school year, I will turn my attention to the Class of 2013. The students in this class possess so many talents and skills that I am certain that they will have a positive impact on the world. It has truly been a joy to watch the Class of 2013 progress and grow during my experiences as an administrator here at LHS. Through the accomplishments of this class, Lancaster High School is certainly a better place. Class of 2013, please accept my sincere and genuine congratulations on your pending graduation. I want to personally thank you for making this year as principal such a joy and honor.
It is always bittersweet for me to see the school year coming to a close. As always, I feel very fortunate to be the leader of this unbelievable school community.
Cesar Marchioli, Principal
