Dear Community Residents:

Summer provides us with a chance to relax and rejuvenate, to connect with our families and friends, and to reflect on what is most important. Certainly, the summer of 2019 has been a banner summer for me as I prepare to  take on the role of superintendent of the Floral Park-Bellerose School District. Having the opportunity to lead a community that is near and dear to me has energized me and renewed my focus on what is most important – our future, our children!

The 2019-2020 school year will be one filled with exciting educational opportunities for the students of the Floral Park-Bellerose School District . While students and parents ready for the return to school, our faculty and staff are busy preparing to ensure a wonderful school year for all.

Educating our students in a nurturing and safe environment is our utmost priority. Through our curriculum and community works we continue to embrace and promote kindness among our students. During the school year, teachers lead character education lessons which are an essential pillar of effective social, emotional and academic learning. These lessons focus on the importance of being kind and encouraging students to make wise choices. They also provide students with examples of how to treat themselves and others kindly, while sparking meaningful discussions in which students can share their feelings in a safe environment.Outside of the classroom, students regularly give back to the community in a variety of ways. Our students know that small acts of kindness can make a big difference in the world.

I know that together we will make this school year a memorable one for all of our students. I look forward to seeing you all at school events throughout the school year.

Sincerely,

Dr. Kathleen Sottile

Superintendent of Schools
