Message from the Superintendent of Schools

Dear Region 6 Community,

I am excited to share that on Monday evening the Region 6 Board of Education Budget for 2018-2019 was approved by an 85-6 vote.


This budget process began in December and included input and participation from community, parents, and school staff. There were meetings, town-tours, school visits, and a promise that together we will share a collective goal to move our district forward for our most important resource – the children of Region 6.


It is important to thank the Selectmen, Board Members, community members, residents, parents, students, along with school administrators, teachers, and staff. It was all of your time, late nights, emails, conversations, and vision, which helped create a budget and make the process a success. I truly believe you have established a process for the rest of the state to emulate.


As many know I am a baseball fan and in the game one can find many parallels to life. The season is a long one (162 games) and while you celebrate the teamwork and victory on a Monday, you don’t lose sight of the work that is left to accomplish.


There were nearly 100 people at WAMOGO on Monday night and we will need everyone again as attention turns to the next three-town tour. This discussion will focus on 2019-2020 and how we address our declining enrollment and school grade configurations.


The schedule for the tour is as follows:

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 @ Warren School

10:00 – Parents

3:30 - Staff

6:00 – Parents (and students)

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 @ James Morris School

10:00 – Parents

3:30 - Staff

6:00 – Parents (and students)

Thursday, May 17, 2018 @ Goshen School

10:00 – Parents

3:30 - Staff

Friday, May 18, 2018 @ Goshen School

6:00 – Parents (and students)


I again send my thanks to the community for the support of the budget and look forward to the continued participation in the important work to follow on behalf of our students.


Best wishes,

Chris

Please send your donations in to the Wamogo Office marked PTO Faculty/Staff lunch. Checks or cash in any amount are greatly appreciated; checks should be made out to Wamogo PTO.
