Dear Parents/Guardians, 

        Last week we celebrated our 100th day of school. It doesn't seem possible, but It won't be long before the school year comes to a close. This school year has been an exciting year of change. With our collaboration efforts with Colebrook and Canaan, we have brought new and exciting opportunities to our students. Efforts for continued collaboration is in the works with Pittsburg students having the opportunity to take electives in the surrounding schools. Students will also be permitted to take core courses if there is a conflict with the core courses offered here at Pittsburg.

      If you have a child who is a junior this year, they will be taking the SAT test on March 21st, 2018.  Studies indicate that a good nights sleep, a healthy diet and being well hydrated all have an impact on your child's performance. In addition, the tradition at the Pittsburg school is to allow students to leave campus after they conclude their test. Permission forms will be sent home from the guidance department.

    In the elementary and middle school, the students continue to enjoy the swim and skate program on Friday afternoons. We have had to reschedule two days. The days have been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 20th, and Friday, February 23rd.  

    In closing, I would like to plan a movie and dinner night for students and parents toward the end of March. I am thinking, possibly, hamburger, hotdogs, and fries or maybe a potluck. Your feedback on the idea is appreciated.  Also, I will be sending out a survey to parents asking for their input on collaboration, course offerings and how we are doing as a school. Please take the time to complete the survey so that we can make informed decisions. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the dinner and movie night as well as your thoughts on the questions that will be in the survey.
