Willsboro Students will be welcomed back to Willsboro Central School Tuesday, Sept. 4.
“We are anxious to get people back in to the building and start working with our kids,” Superintendent Stephen Broadwell said. “We are looking forward to having that day-to-day opportunity for our teachers to work with the students.”
Broadwell said that the first day of school will be a regular class day, and that the school will host a back to school event for elementary students on Thursday, Sept. 13, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Broadwell said that the goals for the school year centered on improving the educational experience for the students.
“We want to continue to improve the education opportunities,” he said. “We want to share all of the experiences that we can offer with them.”
Part of those experiences will be the new core curriculum and implementation of the Dignity for All Students Act, which deals with bullying issues.
“We are well under way with those things and working as hard as anyone to try and meet all of the new requirements,” Broadwell said. “We are working with the Dignity for All program. Bullying is a hot topic now and an issue that will be addressed through this.”
Broadwell said that his message to the students starting school will be a familiar one.
“I tell all of the kids every year that success can be very easy if they just do three things: show up, pay attention and do your work,” he said. “Whether it is in school or in life, you can be very successful if you do those three things.”
