Endings and New Beginnings

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." - Senaca, Roman Philosopher

It is so wonderful to see the end of the long, record setting winter we had with six snow days and numerous delays and the beginning of the warm weather and summer break! Before summer vacation, June is filled with celebrations, concerts, field days, events and graduations. It’s a time to look back at and celebrate the year that is coming to an end and look forward to the beginning of summer vacation, the next school year, college for our graduating seniors or another new beginning that we might be embarking upon.

I have attended or will be attending the various schools’ celebrations including SEPAC’s Wind Beneath My Wings Awards, Barnstable High School Senior Art Show, Spring Concerts, Senior Recognition Night Awards Ceremony and Reception, BPS Staff Retirement Dinner and the Special Education Graduation. The BHS graduation is on Saturday, June 6th at 2:00 P.M. The last day of school for all Barnstable Public Schools is a half day on June 25th.

With the end of the 2014-2015 school year, teachers and students are looking forward to their summer vacation. Several school projects will be worked on and completed during the summer break. Most notably, The Enoch Cobb Early Learning Center building is scheduled to be completed and turned over on July 15th. At the start of the 2015-2016 school year, our youngest learners will have a place to call their own. Also, over summer break, four positions of leadership will begin their new jobs with Barnstable Public Schools.

We have filled four leadership positions in Barnstable Public Schools. Karen Cloutier will be the new Principal at Barnstable-West Barnstable Elementary, Nicole Caucci will be the new Principal of the Enoch Cobb Early Learning Center and Kari Morse will be the new Director of Gateway all beginning on July 1st. Bill Butler, the current School Attorney, will take over as Interim Superintendent on July 1st, while the School Committee searches for a permanent Superintendent of Barnstable Pubic Schools.

As I mentioned above and many of you already knew, I will be leaving Barnstable at the end of this school year for the Superintendent position in Lexington. I have had four great years serving as your Superintendent in Barnstable. I am proud of the positive, collaborative relationship I have had with the Town Manager, School Committee, Town Council, administration, staff, parents, community and most importantly, the students. I would like to thank you all for making my years in Barnstable memorable. I love the Cape and look forward to returning upon my retirement. I wish everyone a safe and happy summer!

 

Our Vision

The vision of the Barnstable Public Schools is to provide a common, standards-based educational program that will enable EVERY student to achieve rigorous performance standards in order to graduate college and career ready.
