Greetings CPS Community!

 

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather over the weekend! It won’t be long until the cool, crisp fall air is here.

 

The first day of school is just a few weeks away. It has been an exciting summer preparing for the new school year and moving the 2022-25 District Plan forward. Last week, the School Committee approved the District Plan Framework, which includes the four Strategic Objectives that will drive our work over the next three years. I encourage you to review the presentation for an overview.

 

We are excited to welcome our new teachers next week as well as our school leadership. All of our teachers will return on Tuesday, August 30. Please note that my convocation will be held on the 30th as well and will be livestreamed. Stay tuned for more details.

 

Please keep an eye out for some key communications on ParentSquare, Annual Forms, and COVID next week and the week of August 29th. Please be assured that we continue to monitor health data and collaborate with the Cambridge Public Health Department regarding any decisions related to our schools.

 

Make it Great!

 

Dr. Victoria L. Greer
