Invitation to Focus Group Re Superintendent Search

Parents, students, district staff, community members and related stakeholders are invited to attend a Focus Group session with the firm, Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates , to solicit feedback and input concerning the qualifications for the next superintendent for our district. Stakeholders are strongly encouraged to attend the focus group session pertaining to their needs since the discussion will be specific to each group. Please see the flyer for dates and times, or visit the district website.

As you make plans to attend the session, we ask that you give keen attention to and be prepared to discuss the following questions:

What are the strengths of the South Orange-Maplewood School District?
What are the challenges and issues that the District faces now and in the future?
What are the characteristics you think are necessary for the next Superintendent?
As a reminder, please complete the survey to help us determine which characteristics you deem to be most important in a superintendent. The survey will be open for collection through the end of September at: http://survey2.ecragroup.com/index.php/184848/lang-en.

Thank you for your assistance in the critical search for the next Superintendent of SOMSD!

June 13th Flag Ceremony

On June 13th the Cub Scouts of Pack 20 will be honored to lead the Raising the Colors on Flag Day (actually, day before Flag Day).

The Colors will be lowered, folded, and raised again. The Pledge of Allegiance will be recited before school the bell.

All Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts are invited to participate in the flag ceremony, and should arrive in uniform no later than 7:45am. Meet by the flag pole.

The scouts will temporarily be cordoning off a 20 ft. radius around the flag pole. This will allow for everyone to have a clear view of the ceremony.

The entire Clinton Community is invited to attend!
