Superintendent of Schools
As we embark on another exciting school year, I want to take a moment to welcome you back to our dynamic group of leaders, teachers, staff, students, families, and community members! Your dedication and contributions to the Valley Stream District 30| the friendly schools have not gone unnoticed, and I am truly grateful for your unwavering commitment to the success of our Global Leaders of Tomorrow. Your tireless efforts and passion for education have made a significant impact on the lives of our Global Leaders of Tomorrow. Valley Stream District 30| the friendly schools remain steadfast in “educating and inspiring our children to reach their fullest potential to become Global Leaders of Tomorrow, through the celebration of diversity and collaboration with students, staff, parents, and community."
Valley Stream District 30| the friendly school is proud to celebrate its 100th anniversary of encouraging its Global Leaders of Tomorrow to think independently and creatively (“outside the box”), as they continue to contribute locally and globally to 21st Century society.
Over the years, the district has continued to offer 21st-century educational experiences and opportunities that ignite the passion within our students to become active, culturally responsive, resilient, respectful, lifelong learners who show ownership for their academic, social, and emotional well-being. Our dedicated leaders, teachers, and staff encourage each student to create a unique learning path by challenging them to communicate, think critically, create, and collaborate with compassion as they become civic and career-ready contributing members of our community and the world. As the Superintendent of Schools of this amazing Valley Stream District 30 community, I am committed to carrying on the tradition of creating a learning environment where our leaders, educators, employees, and students are inspired to reach their maximum potential.
The theme for this year's Arts in Education program is "Express Yourself!" Our Global Leaders of Tomorrow will have a wealth of opportunities to express their perspectives, ideas, and feelings creatively. They will use various media arts such as film photography, video editing, audio engineering, computer/digital arts, robotics, droning and interactive media to express themselves. With these tools at their disposal, our Global Leaders of Tomorrow will have the chance to make their voices heard and show off their unique talents and abilities as we honor the past history of Valley Stream District 30| the friendly schools.
Whatever you do, do it good!
It's not what you look like-
When you're doin' what you're doin'!
It's what you're doin', when you're doin'-
What you look like you're doin'
