The Smethport Area School District would like to welcome our new superintendent, Mr. David London!

May 25, 2017

Where did the time go? This question is often asked by many who reminisce about life, memories and the “good old days”. As we celebrate graduation for the Smethport “Class of 2017”, we will hear those words often, reinforcing that life passes quickly but the memories last a lifetime and beyond. Congratulations to the members of the Smethport Class of 2017, we appreciate your contributions to our school and community! Best wishes for success as you begin your adult life.

I am concluding my first year as your educational leader and also wondering where the time went. I have enjoyed meeting many of you and learning about the Smethport schools and community. I am encouraged by what I have witnessed and especially pleased with the dedicated educators, parents, students and community members who believe in education and what it does for our children. Currently, we face many challenges in education but if we stay focused with our 2020 Vision to support children and develop students, we will always graduate young men and women ready for life as young adults.

In 2016/2017, we started many projects to improve our educational program and operation of the schools. As we look ahead to next year, everyone can expect to learn more about the following initiatives; curriculum alignment and mapping, safety and security changes, development of the guided reading program, increased instructional technology, improved professional development and other projects to improve the education and educational environment for our students. There will be changes for next year and I hope that all staff, students, parents and community members are supportive of moving the Smethport schools forward. I understand that any change is difficult but each time period in our lives presents a set of challenges that must be met with changes in how we do things.

In closing, I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone in the Smethport community for welcoming me to your town and schools. Your continued support for education is always appreciated. Relax, enjoy your summer and take care of yourself! We will be back together in August 2017.
