Dear Ward Families,
What a wild winter it has been! We have had some tremendous weather so far, and it has created some treacherous driving conditions. The extensive amount of snow that has fallen has also made arrivals and pick-ups even more difficult for our 300 or so families. I would ask that when dropping off and picking up your children, please exercise caution, patience, and courtesy as we are the role models for our students. These are the situations in which we can be examples of good citizens for them.
As many of you know, our assistant principal, Mrs. Kimberly Peluso is preparing to have her baby very soon. Her last day before the baby's arrival is set for February 13th. While Mrs. Peluso is on leave, Mr. Ken Levy will be joining us as interim assistant principal. Mr. Levy comes to us with a great deal of experience as a principal. Mr. Levy has worked in the Peekskill, Yorktown, and Suffern school districts. He comes to Ward with extensive background and knowledge as a building administrator. I know you will all join me in welcoming him to Ward when he begins on February 10th. He will be a great addition to our Ward school community.
It continues to be a true pleasure being the principal of Ward school. Our students, staff, and families make this a great place to come to work each and every day.
Franco J. Miele,
