A Day of Remembrance on Sept. 11

While many of North Salem’s middle/high school students were not yet born on Sept. 11, 2001, they still took time to reflect on the tragic events of that day on its 16th anniversary.

“I know you are all aware of our post-9/11 world,” said Principal Mr. Vince DiGrandi during Monday’s morning announcements. “Let’s make today a time for remembrance, as well as celebration.”

Students and faculty members wore white, as has become tradition each year, to bring awareness to the day’s significance.

Mr. DiGrandi implored students and staff alike to “pause and reflect,” but also celebrate the unity and support that surrounded the New York community following the tragic deaths that occurred that morning. He praised the first responders, as well as the citizens who stood in line to donate blood to survivors.

“All Americans bonded in that time of need,” he said. “My message for you today is that we are again in a time of need. Our need is to truly celebrate the individuality and diversity that all students and staff bring to our building every day. Our individual uniqueness makes us all special in our own way and together we are stronger as a school and stronger as a community because of this diversity.”

Following the Pledge of Allegiance, everyone in the school remained standing for a moment of silence before band director Mr. Steve Austin performed taps on the trumpet.

 

A New Year of Learning

Students, faculty and administrators are all ready for another exciting year of learning and growth in the North Salem Central School District.

At each grade level, administrators are hosting assemblies and orientations to acquaint and reacquaint students with the ins and outs of the school day.

At the middle/high school, new Principal Mr. Vince DiGrandi and Assistant Principal Dr. Kathleen Murphy have been introducing themselves to students and faculty as they too ease into their roles. They have hosted welcome assemblies for grades 7-12 and have given sixth-graders more time to assimilate to their new building.

“The kids are undergoing a lot of change [with the new administrators],” said Mr. DiGrandi. “But they seem open to new opportunity. Everything has been great so far.”

Pequenakonck Elementary School welcomed new Assistant Principal Dr. Stephanie Bell. She, with Principal Mrs. Mary Johnson, have been meeting with each grade level during the first week to review expectations and appropriate behaviors in various school environments including the cafeteria, hallways, playground and bathrooms.

“It has been a great start to the year,” said Mrs. Johnson. “There is a lot of new energy and the kids are happy to be back.”

MISSION MONDAY: Tri-State Takes a Look

MISSION MONDAY: Tri-State Takes a Look Photo

Welcome to Mission Monday, a series of posts highlighting the ways North Salem students embrace the district mission of engaging in continual improvement, including questioning, defining and solving problems through critical and creative thinking. To learn more about the North Salem Mission, please click here.

The North Salem Central School District played host to a team of administrators and teachers from the Tri-State Consortium for a three-day visit from April 26 – 28.

In its efforts to engage students to continuously learn, question, define and solve problems through critical and creative thinking, the district has engaged in collaborative efforts with the Tri-State Consortium and EdLeader21 Consortium to answer the following two questions.  

1.    To what degree is the Mission having an impact on students in and out of the classroom?
2.    To what degree are Mission-linked instruction and learning embedded in the culture of the district?                   

Answers to these questions will help the district continue to improve its work with students in preparing them to be problem-solvers, decision-makers and innovators for life.

View highlights from the visit in the below video.
