Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,
It gives me great excitement and enthusiasm to join the Tonawanda City School District. This district and community has been extremely welcoming to me and my family. Your continued support of our school system is most recognizable through the Warrior Pride shared by all.
Having strong ties to the City of Tonawanda and a family history of service here offers me tremendous pride and passion. In the coming months I plan to spend time renewing and creating new relationships both in our school district and neighboring communities.
It should be noted that our district will continue to serve our students and support their families to reach our shared goals. We will be celebrating our successes and targeting areas for growth. We will continue to value our focus on student achievement, best practice instruction, innovative program development and the expansion of initiatives in the areas of STEAM, technology, character education and community partnerships. All of this is accomplished by our defined way of doing business, which is putting kids first.
The positive energy and good will of our staff is a powerful combination. Many children will be hoping that this will be their best school year ever. I am confident that the team in our school system will serve our students to make this a reality. Their positive energy and goodwill is a powerful combination.
Additionally, I am impressed with our buildings, facilities and operations. It is abundantly evident that our support staff does impeccable work to create an environment that supports learning and achievement in the classroom, on the sports fields and other surrounding areas. There is no question that the Tonawanda City School District employs dedicated staff members in every aspect of the organization. They are appreciated and recognized.
I offer my best wishes for a successful school 2017-18 school year to all constituents. We all are striving to offer the best educational opportunities for all of our students in a safe and secure environment.
Superintendent Dr. Timothy A. Oldenburg
