Dear Parents and Guardians,

     It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Kennedy Early Childhood Center. We are all excited to be starting another school year! We have been working all summer to make this year better than last year, with the inclusion of a brand new Social Emotional Learning / Character Education Curriculum. Our goal this year is to create a more positive school climate, which we believe will increase our students’ academic success.

     As a lifelong member of the Greater Nanticoke Area Community, I take pride in our schools and educational practices. I strive to ensure that each child’s educational needs are met, and expectations are exceeded. We have an excellent staff who value their profession and their ideals of rigorous instruction, joyful learning, engaged students, and helping to mold well-rounded individuals.

I encourage each of you to become an active participant in your child’s education. Please understand that we value your questions and input. We look forward to working collaboratively with the students and their families throughout the school year. Feel free to reach out me, or my staff, anytime. 

Mrs. Valerie Bartle
