Superintendent's message

Furthermore, I hope that you are enjoying what has been a beautiful fall season. We are fortunate in our community that we get to experience the amazing fall foliage and the vibrant colors of our hillsides. As much as I enjoy this time of the year, my two favorite colors of fall are still the blue and gold of our Harpursville Hornets.
The first quarter of the school year is just about to end, signaling, among other things, that our fall sports have come to a close or will be very soon for those teams that advanced to state tournament-level play. In fact, as I write this article, I am thinking about the sectional championship game that our field hockey team will be playing. It’s been an outstanding fall season for our field hockey girls and all of our fall athletes, for that matter. They’ve worn their jerseys with pride and have put their best foot forward throughout their seasons, demonstrating the commitment and sportsmanship that we expect and demand of our student athletes. I am proud of our athletes and our coaches, and I thank all who came out to support our teams this fall on the field or court. Hornet pride is alive and well.
I’d like to take a moment to highlight and congratulate the 2019-2020 Akshar All-Star from the Harpursville Central School, Cole Marade. Cole is a senior in our high school this year and he was recognized by Senator Akshar on October 17 for being an outstanding role model to our elementary students. Here’s an example: During the last school year, Cole would go over to the elementary school every morning to have breakfast with and mentor one of our kindergarten students. The “big brother” relationship that developed was amazing. Even though this was challenging at times, Cole stayed the course and remained dedicated to this little guy. Furthermore, Cole never once asked for any recognition. Given this story, I think you’ll agree that it is people like Cole who make communities and, in particular, our school better. Congratulations, Cole, and keep being a role model and a leader through your service to others.
In thinking about the next month, we have a few things to look forward to that I’d like to bring to your attention.  Once again, we’ll be enjoying our annual Thanksgiving Luncheon with members of the Senior Center of Eastern Broome. Our Student Council and National Honor Society students will be serving our lunch guests. Nothing brings people together in a better way than a great meal.
On a completely different note, I want to let you know that we are in the process of a complete redesign of our website.  I am hoping that this is up and running by the end of November. Not only will the website look more modern and be more user-friendly, but once the changeover is made, the website is going to work very well with your smartphones. I know this is good news for everyone, as most of us use our smartphones to access just about everything.  The website will (finally) fit nicely on the screen and you will be able to access everything that the website has to offer.
Similarly, we are in the process of developing our own unique Harpursville Hornets app for your phones, which will put all kinds of useful information right at your fingertips. Additionally, it will allow for push notifications of important information once you start using the app. Keep an eye out for both of these enhancements to our communication systems in the near future; I think they’re going to be a huge help and you’re really going to like the functionality.
In closing, I’d like to extend warm wishes to each of you as we approach the holiday season. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are able to enjoy some time with your family, friends, and all of those that are important to you.  I know I will certainly be giving thanks for my life as a Harpursville Hornet and I hope you’ll do the same.
Yours in education,
Michael J. Rullo
Go Hornets!
