Welcome back from Watertown School Superintendent Schmiegel

Dear Families of the Watertown City School District,

As we eagerly approach the beginning of a new school year, I am thrilled to extend a warm invitation to you for our Open House event on the evening of September 5, 2023. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to join us at your respective school(s) and be part of our exciting academic journey.

Our theme this year is “Rise as One, Rise as Cyclones!” – a call for unity, resilience, and strength. Together, as a school community, we have the power to achieve great things when we support and uplift each other.

We encourage you and your children to fully connect and engage with school this year. Embrace the joy of learning, seek out new friendships, and immerse yourselves in the diverse opportunities that await you. Your unique talents and contributions make our school community truly special, and we cannot wait to witness the individual and collective growth of our students.

Education is more than just acquiring knowledge; it’s about building character, fostering compassion, and honing abilities to make a positive impact on the world. Each day in school presents a chance for students to learn, inspire, and be inspired.

Let’s make this academic year a remarkable and transformative one. Together, we will rise as Cyclones, united and determined, achieving great heights, and making a meaningful difference in our school and beyond.

During the Open House, you will have the opportunity to meet our dedicated educators and staff who are committed to providing a nurturing and supportive learning environment for your children. It will also be a chance to familiarize yourselves with the school premises, understand our academic programs, and learn about the various support systems in place for students’ success.

As we embark on this new chapter, know that your children will be guided and uplifted by caring individuals who are dedicated to their growth and well-being.

Let’s seize this moment, embrace the challenges, and celebrate the successes that lie ahead. Together, we will create lasting memories and forge bonds that will carry us through a lifetime.

I eagerly await the evening of September 5, 2023, when we can all come together and start this incredible journey of learning and growth.
With warmest regards,

Dr. Larry C. Schmiegel
Superintendent of Schools
