Message from Dr. William Brennan, Superintendent of Schools
To Our Massapequa Family,
As I sit to write this brief update and review our January Minute and Moment, I have two thoughts – first, time seems to be flying by! Second, it’s been a productive and truly special January across Massapequa Schools!
January is often a month for reflection, renewal and resets, providing us with an opportune moment to introspect, revitalize and set the tone for the months ahead. Across our schools, our students and staff have embraced the opportunities of the new year and it is with great pleasure that we highlight the incredible achievements and exciting initiatives that have shaped our community this past month.
We started off strong by honoring our fall varsity championship teams at the first Board of Education meeting of the new year. With two Nassau County champions and two Long Island champions, Massapequa truly is “title town.” During the month, our elementary schools welcomed in police officers for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, students continued their charitable work and the ever-growing sport of pickleball was introduced in physical education classes.
The pace of the year may be swift, but let’s take a collective pause and appreciate the journey we’re on together. I hope you enjoy this month’s recap!
Looking ahead, we are continuing work on our Portrait of a Massapequa Graduate initiative, which will be a community-based, common vision of the character traits, knowledge, skills, and values that Massapequa graduates should possess for success after high school. Stay tuned for the winter Insight edition in a few weeks, which will provide more detail on our efforts, including how everyone can get involved in this initiative.
Finally, we hope you are enjoying the elementary-level Family Connect Nights thus far. I am pleased to share that our next one is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 6. I look forward to hearing the many positive experiences and activities that grow out of this evening.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
Dr. William Brennan, Superintendent of Schools
