    Hello.

     

    Hello.

    October has been a busy month here in school.  All parents should have recieved 5 week reports by this time.  A letter also went our regardin the upcoming Parent/eTacher Conference Night.  Please make sure to sign up early for your conferences.  Some teachers schedules close out very quickly.  
     
    Early in October Mr. Thomas Kersting the author of "Disconnected" presented to the entire Saugerties school community about social media and its effects on our children's brains and behavior. Please take a look at his website regarding this very  topic.  Social media safety has quickly become one of the most important issues facing our students.  
     
    The fall sports season is wrapping up this week.  If your children are interested in playing a winter sport, make sure they sign up through our electronic portal.  If you have questions, call the Athletic Directors office at extension 6675.
     
     Please don't hesitate to call me with any school related questions.  (247-6655)
     
    Mr. Averill

    The Junior High School is embracing our new district goals of student achievement and positive climate with a focus on enhancing kindness and mutual respect. Stay tuned for initiatives that will task your children to rise above the social stressors that they face everyday. 
     
    Our Positive Behavioral Intervention Systems (PBIS) initiative is working very well.  This initiative is intended to communicate a common language of expectations for behavior in the hallways, cafeteria, locker rooms and classrooms in a positive, easy to understand language.  The students have been receptive, so we will continue to develop the concept as the year progresses. 
     
     
    I understand that your child may only be in Jr. High, but it is never to early to start learning about colleges.  One place to begin is to talk to your child about some of the successes of our own Saugerties students.    The Saugerties Merit Page link I have attached showcases their success.  Feel free to visit this page to see how our Saugerties students are doing after leaving our school.   https://app.meritpages.com/dashboard/timeline
