Dear Members of the Garden City School Community,
Welcome to the start of the 2021-22 school year! While we are still contending with the COVID-19 pandemic, I am committed to providing as "normal" a school year as possible for all Garden City students. We are eager to welcome our children back for full-time, in-person instruction in September. And while we all must still adhere to certain health and safety protocols, I am looking forward to a successful year ahead in partnership with our entire school community.
For the upcoming year, I hope to continue an open dialogue with parents, students and staff. Your involvement last year was instrumental in how our district adjusted its educational plan. I hope to introduce different ways to engage the community this year so that you have additional avenues for offering your input and feedback.
For 2021-22, we are also committed to applying certain lessons we learned throughout the past year and a half to our educational program. We will expand the use of technology to make our instructional program even stronger and provide opportunities for students at all levels to interact with one another throughout the year.
As our doors open once again in early September, our high school students will have access to a renovated library and science research center. We have begun planning for the middle school library media center, and STEAM/collaborative learning spaces at both elementary buildings. I look forward to seeing these projects through completion.
We appreciate your involvement and continued partnership!
Kusum Sinha, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools
