Welcome Letter

Dear MMMUSD/CESU School Community,

Each new school year brings with it a sense of renewed optimism, excitement and hope. It is not difficult to understand the origin for these feelings when you travel across the 200 square miles that make up our school system and interact with students, staff members, parents and community members. You recognize how fortunate we are to live in area of the state and country that values kindness, respectful communication, dignity, equality for all and an inclusive educational environment. Building on these assets and supporting students to reach their full potential are primary objectives of our school district. It is our day-to-day interactions, communications and behaviors that will allow us to cultivate an educational environment where all graduates are effective and engaged citizens who are prepared to make positive contributions to local, national and global communities. The little things we do like giving a smile, a nod of understanding or a caring gesture create and sustain a school culture that promotes acceptance, civility and thoughtful communication. We all rise by lifting others.

MMMUSD-CESU has several exciting programs and initiatives planned for the 2017-18 school year. These include outdoor hands-on learning opportunities, 5-12 personal learning plans (PLPs), embedded math and literacy professional development, student internships, community service and civic opportunities, inquiry-based science lessons, expanded summer enrichment options for students and a language immersion program serving 20 kindergarteners at Jericho Elementary School. Faculty and staff are working hard to design rich, student-centered and engaging educational programs. The 2017-18 school year is shaping up to be a year full of fresh ideas, promise and rewarding learning opportunities for students.

I look forward to working with all of you to make 2017-18 a productive, interesting and successful school year.


John R. Alberghini, Superintendent
