SOMERDALE PARK SCHOOL OPENS FOR THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR!
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL! We hope you enjoyed your Summer and are excited to see all the changes that we have made to Cavalier Park. The Somerdale Park School will open its doors on September 6, 2016 for the start of the 2016-2017 school year! Welcome back/student-parent information can be found on our website. Our website contains all the forms, calendars, class lists and supplies needed to start the new school year. Visit us on www.Somerdale-park.org for all the latest news and updates. Our Annual Back-to-School Night will be held on September 22, 2016, giving parents an opportunity to visit the school and meet their child(ren)’s teachers and see all the changes that were made during the Summer.
With the start of the new school year we welcome several new staff members to Somerdale Park School, Mr. Robert Ford (Vice-Principal), Ms. Anna Barnow (Middle School Math), Mr. Roland Rossi (Middle School Science), Lauren McCaffrey (Middle School Science), and Mr. Patrick Glatz (Special Education), we are excited to have them join our team.
Academically, for the 2016-2017 school year, we continue to upgrade our network system to better provide PowerSchool, PowerGrade, and technology programs to our staff and students. We also are moving forward with our paperless initiative. Our Teachers will continue to use less paper in the classroom and will be setting up their own websites for students and parents to access. These sites will contain homework assignments, information for upcoming events and/or forms that will be filled out electronically. In order to move forward, our students are assigned computer tablets to work on and learn during the school day.
The Gym floor now has school spirit, it has been redone and our Somerdale logo now appears in center court. It will be exciting to see the students reaction when they walk into the Gym on the first day of school. The Cafe and Music have a fresh coat of paint with blue and gold stripes to add to the school spirit.
The Somerdale School District Staff is happy to be back in school for another exciting and challenging school year! If at any time in the course of the school year, any questions arise about the school or its educational programs, or you’d like to drop by and visit the educational facility, please don’t hesitate to contact either myself, Dr. Dennis Vespe, Superintendent, or Mr. Robert Ford, Vice-Principal, and schedule an appointment.
