Dear Ward Families,

It seems like just yesterday that we were wishing each other a restful and relaxing summer, yet here we are again at the beginning of another school year. During the 2013 – 2014 school year, many wonderful things happened at Ward School. I hope you will all join me as we look ahead to the 2014 - 2015 school year and continue to make great things happen together!
Welcome back to the familiar faces as well as to the families who are new to Ward this year. Let us continue to work together for the benefit of our children. As always, my door is always open; please do not hesitate to stop by!
                                                                            
Sincerely,
Franco J. Miele, Principal

William B. Ward Elementary School is located in New Rochelle, New York. A strong academic program not only stresses mastery of basic skills - reading, writing, and mathematics - but includes a comprehensive social studies program and an in-depth inquiry based science program. 

Ward School is a warm, positive, energetic and enthusiastic place where all children can reach their full potential as students academically, socially, and emotionally.  Diversity is one of our strengths.  Building upon this, Ward School strives to "produce responsible, self-sufficient citizens who possess the self-esteem, initiative, skills, and wisdom to continue individual growth, pursue knowledge, develop aesthetic sensibilities, and value cultural diversity by providing intellectually challenging educational programs".

A New Beginning

Dear CSDNR Family,


A New Beginning

With excitement and anticipation, I welcome you to the 2014-15 school year. Today on the first day of school, from the elementary to middle schools to the high school, I saw fantastic energy and enthusiasm among students, teachers and staff. We began by coming together yesterday at our staff opening convocation, in an inspiring beginning to the new school year. I share that first-day enthusiasm, as do our administrators and Board of Education. As your new Superintendent, I know that our also new Board of Education President Lianne Merchant and her esteemed colleagues are prepared to harness the power of a fresh perspective – adding that to a passion for building on our numerous existing successes. Working together, I am confident that we can sustain that “first day” feeling for all of us as we embark on this year’s educational journey.

Preparing for the School Year

This summer, many teachers engaged in curriculum writing, continuing education and professional enrichment opportunities. I have spent the summer getting to know this wonderful district and its dedicated employees. In the past several days, we have expanded our activity by welcoming and orienting 47 new staff members (see more at www.nred.org), congratulating 25 new tenure recipients at the Tuesday, September 2 Board meeting, and beginning an in-depth analysis of the grades 3-8 state test scores, 2013-14 New Rochelle ELA and Math Results.pdf.

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.
