IN Phoenixville Area Summer 2017 - Page 20

A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT Dr. Fegley and students at the District Math 24 competition. Dear Phoenixville Community, As we head into the final weeks of this school year, you can feel the excitement building. It’s a time of both reflection and looking to the future. The past year has been filled with many successes for PASD, and I am very confident the best is yet to come! In this issue, we’re celebrating our seniors as they are making their plans for next year and beyond. Our students have been accepted at some of the finest universities and colleges in the country, are choosing to serve their country in the armed forces, or will be joining the workforce. We are beyond proud of each and every one of them, and confident they will continue to represent Phoenixville well. At the beginning of the school year, I talked about our “Together We Can” theme—the District’s commitment to partner with local businesses, organizations, and individuals to increase opportunities for all students, and work to close the achievement gap. I encourage you to read about some of those efforts: • three of our graduates, Class of 1967, who are coming together in creating a scholarship for a deserving student; • the Adolescent Awareness Foundation and Maxwell Football Club who provided the funding to bring Eagles great Brian Westbrook to share his story of overcoming obstacles on his way to success; • the STEM competitions, fundraising events, and community gatherings made possible by the broad band of support across our community We are also pleased to recognize many of our excellent teachers, coaches and staff who were nominated for the Citadel Heart of Learning or Impact Awards for the outstanding job they do in and out of the classroom. I am proud to work with all of these talented, committed educators, and applaud them for this well deserved honor. And, finally, I invite you to join us on May 31st as we unveil Manavon Elementary School and the Phoenixville Area Early Learning Center. The Open House will be the first of many opportunities for the Phoenixville community to view this spectacular new building. Enjoy your reading, and have a wonderful summer! Respectfully, Alan D.
