Welcome Letter

Dear MMMUSD/CESU School Community,

I want to share my excitement and enthusiasm as we start a new school year. Embarking on a new year is an opportunity to reflect on past experiences, set new goals and begin a fresh path to success. In preparation for the 2016-17 school year, teachers, administrators and education support staff have been working over the summer months on key curriculum and instructional initiatives. Through academic coursework, collaboration and analysis we are creating a culture that will allow our school system to provide students with education programs that match their interests and learning profiles. Our professional development, strategic priorities, investments and supervision and evaluation system are designed to optimize precious resources and support educators in providing students with rich, diverse, meaningful and engaging learning opportunities.

Please visit our new district website and upgraded school-based websites to garner news and updates, view learning in action and receive educational programming information. Additionally, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or principal if you have questions about a school program or want to give feedback. Your engagement and input is vital as we strive to provide your child with an effective, relevant and rewarding preK-12 education.

As we enter this new school year, I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to students, parents and guardians, school volunteers, teachers, education support staff, school board directors and community members. Your support, commitment and values are what make our school system special and the impetus for continuous growth and systematic advancement.

Best wishes in the 2016-17 school year,

John R. Alberghini, Superintendent

Student Vloggers at RES

Last year students at Richmond Elementary School had the chance to become the first student vloggers in the school's history. Each vlogger had a camera, a week and the mission of sharing a bit about their lives. What came back was inspiring and amazing. Students (and adults) learned about each other, empathy, more about the art of storytelling and communication. It was so powerful it's happening again this year! Be sure to follow @kblefrancois on Twitter or visit her blog at to catch student vlogs in the coming weeks. If you are interested in having students participate in our celebration please use the hashtag #studentvlog and join this great community!
