Thank You for Another Successful School Year

As another school year comes to a close, I want to an opportunity to thank the many groups who work all year to help make our schools a great place to learn. First and foremost, I want to thank our teachers. Everyday, you work diligently to find ways to make learning both engaging and relevant for all our students. I want to thank our support staff who work hard both behind the scenes and in the classrooms to support the work our teachers do. I want to thank our administrators for the long hours and commitment they make to our schools. Also, thank you to our parents and guardians for the encouragement you give your children and for investing in our school system. Finally, thank you to our students for the hard work you do everyday and for giving us a reason to come to work everyday with a smile. 

The Hatfield Public School District could not manage without the continued support of the many community groups who we work with everyday. On behalf of the members of the Hatfield School Committee, I want to thank the following groups for their support of the Hatfield Public Schools during the past school year: The Smith Academy and Hatfield Elementary School Councils.
