  • We are finally enjoying summer weather finally and are diligently moving to be ready for students and staff in August.  Congratulations are due all around!  
    First, we are very excited to announce that Kate Landry will be the next Teaching Principal at Stark Village School!  She is a familiar face who has served the district well in her role as the Stark upper grades teacher most recently and will continue to do so with administrative support and collaboration with her wonderful peers.  Both Kate Landry and Kelley Jewell are completing their Principal Certifications in August!  Their hard work and dedication are certainly admired and appreciated with continued demonstration of excellence for Stark and all of SAU 58.  Bravo!  There is teamwork underway as Mr. Dugan-Henriksen assists in this administrative transition effective July 24, 2022.  Congratulations to Kate, Kelley, and the entire community!
    Many huge thanks to Mr. Dugan-Henriksen for his fine leadership over the past two years.  Just as promised, he has seen us through and shown such wonderful support and professionalism when we needed it most.  We wish him the very best in all that he so chooses.  He is so active in our communities and dedicated to hundreds of students and citizens throughout the North Country.  Although Jay is still "retired," you never know where he will turn up next to stay busy and keep giving back:-)

    Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns!
    Thanks and more congratulations!!

  • Dear Stark Community,
    I want to clarify any confusion surrounding recent correspondence regarding the plans for Stark Leadership in the next school year.  As I shared last week in an initial email, Mr. Dugan-Henriksen has provided leadership and service throughout the past two school years as we maneuvered the pandemic and a shift in a leadership model for Stark Village School.  To align with his retirement planning and next adventures, we have begun the process of securing the right fit and model for leadership at the school.  This may involve a teaching principal, a part-time principal, or another structure.  
    In the meantime, we are seeking internal and/or external applicants and letters of interest to explore what our options may be to find the best fit for SVS, while considering the budget parameters.  Last week I sent a brief Google Form survey to collect some information and give an opportunity for open comments regarding traits the community may seek in the next leader.  Here is the link for the survey if you have not completed it.  We will use the input from all constituents in the decision-making process.
    I am confident that we can find the best solutions to serve our wonderful school in the coming months and be ready to start the year off strong.  I know that Mr. Dugan-Henriksen will serve us in his current capacity throughout this thoughtful process.  I apologize for any confusion that may have been an unintended consequence of recent communication from me or anyone else.  As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns.
    I look forward to these exciting times and opportunities to continue to reflect on our mission of providing excellence for all students.

    Waterford Upstart is an at-home, early learning program that helps children build reading skills before kindergarten so they can be confident in the classroom on day one. NHED is partnering with Waterford to offer these services at no cost. Registration links for parents for the fall program and summer program
    NHED is partnering with NH camps and school-age summer programs across the state to offer its ReKindling Curiosity summer camp initiative. Here is a handout flyer with detailed information on the program, which we encourage schools to share with their families.
