Dear Chittenango Central Schools Community Members,
On behalf of the Chittenango CSD Board of Education, administration, faculty and staff, it is my honor to welcome you to the 2018 – 2019 school year! When given the opportunity, please introduce yourself to our Board of Education members, Mr. Geoff Zimmer (BOE President), Mr. Russell Wehner (BOE Vice-President), Dr. Siubhan Bongiovanni (Trustee), Mr. Daniel Gibbons (Trustee), Mr. Jamie Boswell (Trustee), Mr. Lou Cianfrocco (Trustee), Mr. Daniel Mayer (Trustee), Mr. Ed Gratien (Trustee) and Mr. Phil Austin (Trustee). In the Chittenango Schools community, we are extremely fortunate to have a committed Board of Education who consistently acts in the best interests of our children, demonstrates servant leadership and faithfully supports our schools and community. Our Board of Education is highly functional, deeply dedicated and selflessly engaged.
It is with tremendous pride and humility that I serve the Board of Education and the Chittenango School District family in the capacity as School Superintendent. Bear Country is our home and as a school district community, we are on the move! Indeed, I am excited to announce a few positive developments for the new school year. Please join me in welcoming a new member of our Bear Country administrative team, Mr. David Gryczka, as the Director of Physical Education, Health & Athletics/Dean of Students. David comes to the CCSD with several years of experience in this capacity having most recently served as the Director of PE, Health and Athletics in the Mexico School District. Our administrative team, faculty and staff are committed to excellence and a common vision of doing what is best for our students. Welcome, Mr. Gryczka, to our Bear family!
We are also eager to share the launch of our new district website showcasing Chittenango Central Schools and our local community. As a component of our targeted focus on effective means of communication, our new website offers an enhanced calendar feature capable of feeding your personal calendar (with notifications of event changes) and compliments two additional new features to our communication platform – Peachjar and Twitter. Peachjar is a digital flyer system delivering school-approved flyers directly to a parent’s e-mail inbox. More information will be forthcoming on Peachjar and how to register from your child’s school! I also invite you to follow me on Twitter @MEiffe_GoBears for highlights and accomplishments of our Chittenango students!
In closing, I look forward with great anticipation to the successes and achievements of the 2018 - 2019 school year and am eager to genuinely invest in the greatness of our future. Beginning with the opening day of classes, Wednesday , September 5, I speak with confidence that the school year ahead will be one of progress, productivity and purpose. If I may be of any service or support for your child(ren), family or community organization, please do not hesitate to ask. We are BEARS, together we are BEAR COUNTRY and with pride we affirm that WE ARE CHITTENANGO!
Michael R. Eiffe – Superintendent of Schools
