Dear Parents and Guardians:
As we approach the upcoming school year, we will be celebrating another year of instruction in the Neptune City School District. Before our students arrive in September, our professional staff will return on September 3rd and 4th for our Opening Day Programs during which we will welcome new and returning faculty and staff. We also will participate in several professional development experiences. Our goal continues to be to ensure that each child is provided with an education designed to meet his or her needs. We believe that our professional staff is instrumental in providing for this success.
During its meeting in July, the Board of Education approved my employment as Interim Superintendent of Schools until a permanent replacement is identified as the new educational leader of the District. Please be assured that I will extend every effort to ensure that the educational, emotional, artistic and social need of the children attending the Woodrow Wilson School are met in an effective manner. My experience includes nine years as a middle school principal and nineteen years as a superintendent of schools in both New Jersey and New York. As the school year begins, I look forward to the opportunity to meet the children, instructional staff, building leadership, support staff, parents/guardians and community members who are all vital to the success of the District.
With the school year just beginning, I encourage you to join your Booster Club, attend an event in your school and enjoy watching our students compete on our teams or participate in performing arts programs or other school activities. School spirit and pride are bolstered by parent/guardian support of our performing arts groups, clubs and athletic programs.
Let us all work collaboratively to see our children get off to a good start this school year, developing those study routines that are most likely to lead to academic success. We want our students to benefit from all that our schools have to offer. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions about what you can do to promote your child’s academic success and personal well-being in school.
Ralph P. Ferrie, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
