The Superintendent's Corner

News from Dr. Kasun...

December 2015

It is a magical time in our schools! With anticipation of the upcoming break and the showcasing of many talents in and out of the classroom, it’s a wonderful way to begin the holiday season.

Please save the date of January 21st at 7:00 at West Freehold School. It is the kick off to our strategic plan. We will be showing the documentary Most Likely to Succeed, which is one of the most powerful films that highlights the critical issues facing schools today.

We have a lot to celebrate this month!

Thank You Mindy Wille!

After 18 years, Mindy is retiring from our Board. I truly feel privileged to have worked with Mindy. She was instrumental in me coming to Freehold, and I still remember conversations we had before I was hired about what an excellent place Freehold was to work, learn and grow. Her pride, enthusiasm and her visible commitment to do what was best for students made me want to the join the team.

Once I was here, Mindy served as a coach, mentor and friend. She helped me understand the culture and strive to continue the journey for excellence. Her legacy will last forever as she has shaped so many who will continue to offer the very best for our students. I thank her family for sharing her with us—as there were countless hours she dedicated to making Freehold an amazing school district. Lastly, I thank Mindy for her service and dedication and wish her the very best in all her future endeavors.
