Superintendent’s Mid Year Update

December 2015

New Hanover Township continues to provide a safe vibrant leaning environment where our students enjoy learning.  The teachers and administration are dedicated to meeting the individual and varied needs of all of our students.  The school has continued to embrace and celebrate our diverse student population with many programs regarding health and character education, patriotism, peer mentoring and athletic and club participation.  The PTO has served as an outstanding support organization to enhance our school-wide programs and initiatives.  The teachers, parents and administrators are continuing to build in opportunities for greater home-school partnerships to welcome all families into our school.

The administration will continue to emphasize the four Areas of Focus as defined in the 2015-16 District and Superintendent Goals below:

1.   Improve School-wide Communication Processes
2.   Address Student Achievement Gaps as Identified
