Dear Harrisburg School District Staff Members,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!

As we begin the new school year, may we be reminded of the words of Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Please know how incredibly important you are in the lives of Harrisburg School District students! You have the ability to create opportunities that will indeed change the world for our students. Together, during the new school year, may we seize the opportunity to educate and inspire a new generation of students and fill their lives with hope and promise. As Harrisburg School District staff members, know that you are valued and appreciated!

As the newly appointed Court Receiver, this summer it has been a pleasure working with a dedicated team in many areas including the purchase of curriculum materials, improving the interior and exterior of buildings, enhancing support for schools, and improvements in human resources.

I look forward to working together to make this an incredible school year, filled with spectacular experiences for the students we serve. Thank you for all that you do and for your unwavering commitment to the students of the Harrisburg School District.
