Last month I had the honor of attending several high school graduation ceremonies in Paterson. It is always a pleasure to see students reach this very important goal and the satisfaction it brings to them and their families. I was happy to learn that many graduates, including those who attended the Adult High School, are planning to pursue higher education in the fall.
The mission of Paterson Public Schools is to prepare every student for success at the college or university of their choice. Whether or not a young person chooses to pursue a post-secondary education is certainly their decision, but it is our job to make certain that they are prepared to attend college and to succeed when they do.
I invite all residents to join me as I introduce our Strategic Plan during the Community Forums in October. Let’s look at the plan together and let it become a successful roadmap as we achieve our mission of preparing every student for academic success, before and after high school graduation.
I hope to see you there.
