“The little things matter to me; how we treat others, how we make people feel, how we react to challenges we face. My Hopes and Dreams for this year will be a reality if I can help others focus on the little things. The big things take care of themselves if the little things are in order. I believe each student enters the building with the hope of being successful. That doesn’t necessarily mean being the best. What it does mean is, “Can I be better today than I was yesterday?” The whole child matters and it is my job to keep our focus on that mindset.”
I am in my fourth year as Superintendent. The challenges this year with the pandemic have been unprecedented. But, our school community has met the challenge. The support and encouragement I receive from the BOE, students, staff and community members is fantastic. You continue to be gracious and patient as I learn to navigate this new journey of district leadership. Graduation is always a highlight of the year, as I watch the fruits of our labor cross the stage. It is a fun and memorable evening.
A cheerful welcome to the new Class of 2033, entering kindergarten, the Senior Class of 2021 and all other students that will walk through the halls this year.
Students are at the center of all we do each day. It is our passion to give your child a supportive, enthusiastic and challenging learning environment. When I walk the halls each day I see staff that are dedicated to developing meaningful relationships with their students. I see students that are well-behaved and respectful of each other and their school. That tradition and culture is what makes Letchworth such a special place. We will continue to strive to help students become caring, compassionate and valuable members of their community. We want to build students that are not fearful of failure and gracious when victorious. I get excited just thinking of the possibilities that are ahead of us.
As the year progresses, try and get out to as many school events as you can. We have amazing students and staff. You will not be disappointed whether you are watching a musical performance or a sporting event. The effort our students put forth is consistently commendable.
A heart felt thank you to all of our employees; teachers, bus drivers, custodial workers, cafeteria workers and all other support staff. This team is dependable and professional. We are very fortunate.
You will notice more upgrades to our main entrances when you visit the school. Some of these are aesthetic, but the majority are security measures. Our main goal is to improve security, but also maintain a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for you and your children. I know you see the value in both and it can be difficult to maintain a balance. One of the additions, will be the implementation of a new Visitor Management System-RAPTOR. It scans your Government issued ID (driver’s license) for security purposes. Thank you for your understanding as we make this transition.
Together…. We are Letchworth,
Mr. Todd Campbell
The mission of Letchworth Central School is to prepare each student for the challenges of his or her own distinct future in a democratic pluralistic society. Each pupil will acquire the life skills, moral values and information processing capabilities to become successful, fulfilled adults. The school community will develop and maintain high staff and student morale and encourage the love of learning as a lifelong process. This is best achieved by bringing the world to our students through the cooperative effort and common goals of staff, students, and community.
