A Message from the Superintendent
October 30, 2018
Dear Community Members,
Given the current disparity in the level of support for the Capital Project, the Board of Education at its October 25th meeting, decided to put the project under consideration on hold – as is, to be revisited the summer of 2019. It is my opinion that moving forward without a consensus of support for the project will not likely result in a positive outcome and it is best to refocus our efforts in the short term.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who served on committees, attended meetings, completed surveys, shared ideas and expressed their opinions. Three years of time and effort was invested by many. This work will provide a solid springboard for future consideration, and any needed repairs will be addressed within our annual budget.
A Message from the Board of Education
Pocantico Hills Board of Education Begins Executive Search
Dear Community Members:
The Pocantico Hills Board of Education has begun the process of searching for a Superintendent of Schools. We are committed to seeking your input into this process, and to keeping you apprised of progress along the way.
As a first step, we will involve diverse groups of community members to help us formulate a desired profile of the next school leader. While the Board of Education has the responsibility for selecting and appointing the Superintendent, we consider input and feedback from stakeholder groups an essential component in guiding our search and making our final selection.
We have engaged Bob Christmann, lead consultant at NY State Leadership Group, to support our District throughout this process. Mr. Christmann will be leading and facilitating each of the input sessions.
Please review the list of engagements below, organized by stakeholder group, and feel free to attend the one that is most appropriate for you. You are welcome to attend any of the sessions. However, please keep in mind Mr. Christmann will tailor each session to the specific needs of each group. Additionally, we will arrange an online survey for community members to provide additional guidance (details forthcoming).
If you are unable to attend any of the sessions, or wish to provide further input, you are welcome to call Mr. Christmann directly: 716-777-0451. Also, you can also contact the Board of Education at any time via: firstname.lastname@example.org .
The sessions will be held in the School Library, and are as follows:
- Tuesday, October 23, 2018
- 6:30-7:30 pm: Parents/Guardians of Students
- 7:30-8:30 pm: Any Community Member (District Resident)
- Wednesday, October 24, 2018
- 6:45-7:30pm: Pocantico Hills Foundation and PTA Members

What Is Your Mood? Check Out Our Middle School Mood Meter
The ability to recognize, understand, label, express and when necessary, regulate our emotions is critical to our emotional health and success in school. Understanding these skills using the RULER approach provides our students with an opportunity to utilize the Mood Meter—an important component to the Anchors of Emotional Intelligence. Our Mood Meter Mondays allow students to utilize this resource to self-identify their emotion prior to lunch. This provides one data point to assess our students’ emotional well-being and our overall culture and climate at Pocantico at the beginning of each week.
Link to our Middle School Mood Meter can be found here.
Pocantico Hills School Core Values – Kindness, Respect and Perseverance
As part of our successful transition back to school, our 8th grade students were charged with creating a school-wide character pledge that reflects our core values—kindness, respect and perseverance. Their successful work was chronicled throughout the week and captured on video Pocantico Character . Our Pocantico Character Pledge is recited each morning following the Pledge of Allegiance as a school community. Again, a special thank you to the class of 2019 and Mr. Murray, Mrs. Carruth and Mrs. Hongell, who facilitated this important work with our students.
As a student of character at Pocantico Hills …
I pledge to not give up when obstacles are in the way. I will persevere.
I will listen to others and use careful words. I will be respectful.
I will smile and greet people in the hallways. I will be kind.
The Pocantico Hills School staff believes that each student is a complex and unique person. We are committed to helping our children realize their complete personal potential – academic, creative, physical and emotional. We will ask the students to stretch themselves and help them to discover the rewards of working hard.
We will treat the students with respect and understanding and encourage them to be caring and contributing members of society, students who are thoughtful, honest, fair, kind and self-disciplined.
