A Message from Superintendent Palotti:
The 2018-19 School Year has officially come to a close! We are so proud of our students and their accomplishments both this year and throughout their academic careers in the Hornell City School District.
The end of the school year brings the excitement of the graduation of our Senior Class and the celebration of the culmination of their years of work leading to this point. Each year we have the privilege of witnessing our kids becoming adults and going off to college, the military, or directly to employment using the tools they have gathered during their time with us. It is a very exciting time for a school district as we reflect on the years, the accomplishments of our students and the opportunities at that their Hornell education has afforded them. As we say goodbye to our seniors and wish them well, our faculty and administration at North Hornell are meeting and greeting our newest students, the class of 2033, to the Hornell City School District.
With summer vacation upon us, the Hornell City School District is anything but quiet. Our North Hornell and Intermediate Schools are both playing host to our Summer Learning Academy for the third straight year. BOCES Summer School for high school students is located in our High School and various other extracurricular activities including the continuation of the Summer Feeding Program, will be occurring in and around our schools. Teachers will also be engaged in many hours of professional learning and curriculum work as we polish our craft and prepare for the opening of the 2019-20 school year.
In addition to saying goodbye to our graduating seniors, the Hornell City School District also said goodbye to several teachers and support staff that have given so much to the District and the students they served. The following have a combined total of over 200 years of service to the Hornell City Schools District and each one has contributed in their own way. We, as a District, are grateful for their dedication to the children of this community and wish them the very best in the next chapter of their lives. Congratulations to the 2018-19 Retirees of the Hornell City School District:
Barbara Steffler, District Support Staff; Barbara Todd, Teacher Aide; Sally Norton, Elementary Teacher; Karen Simiele, Speech Teacher; Nancy Nisbet, Teacher Aide;
Kathy Foster, Teacher Aide; Gary Foster, Teacher Aide; Laura Prete, Teacher Aide; and Dawn Burritt, Teacher Aide.
