Superintendent’s Message – Michael Healey
Dear Argyle Central School Community Members,
February kicked off the second semester of the 2016-17 school year, and also marked the beginning of my second month as Superintendent here at Argyle. While most of January was spent meeting staff, students, parents, and community members, I was fortunate to also attend several events and see our students participating in classes, awards ceremonies, the spelling bee, basketball games, and several other exciting extracurricular activities.
The boys and girls basketball teams are both in the middle of exciting, successful seasons! With sectional play fast approaching, and if you haven’t already, please join us and see our teams in action. I have been impressed with the dedication, teamwork, intensity, and sportsmanship demonstrated by our student-athletes! I also appreciate how our students, parents, families, and community members fill the gymnasium to support our teams!
I’ve enjoyed hearing our students preparing for the Spring Band and Chorus concert (May 18, 2017); and the Visual Arts here in Argyle, absolutely amazing! Challenging academics, competitive athletic teams, and a love and appreciation for the Arts – Argyle CSD, what a great place for kids to be!
February and March finds us right in the middle of the 2017-18 school budget planning process. In late January, school districts received the Governor’s proposed 2017-18 State Budget and now we await the final state budget in April. A portion of each Board of Education meeting between now and April will be devoted to developing next year’s budget.
Thank you for the warm welcome during my first month here at Argyle! As we get to know each other and begin our work together, I want you to know that I am excited to be a part of the Argyle community and look forward to supporting the efforts to bring excellent opportunities to our students!
