Welcome Greenport Families to a new school year!

We hope that everyone enjoyed a fun filled and relaxing summer! 

It is with great pleasure that I write to welcome you back to another great school year.  I hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities while enjoying the wonderful sunshine.  How quickly summer concludes and our thoughts turn to preparing for the start of school.  This is always one of my favorite times of the year!  I love the excitement of beginning each new school year and eagerly await welcoming our students and hearing their great summer stories.  I’m thrilled to be part of a team comprised of teachers, staff, parents and students who want to achieve great things! Our faculty, staff and I are looking forward to a new school year and are working hard to see that your child’s learning experience at Greenport schools is a successful and happy one.

Your partnership and support are key elements to ensuring that we are able to maximize each student’s educational and personal development.  To that end, we encourage a positive home-school relationship based on the mutual goal of providing the best learning experience possible for all of our students.  Our talented faculty brings a diverse set of approaches to instruction in order to address a variety of student learning styles.  You will have the opportunity to meet the faculty at our Back-To-School event on Thursday, September 26 at 6:30 p.m.  You will have the opportunity to visit your child's classroom, begin to form a relationship with the classroom teacher, as well as learn about the grade level curriculum, specials, classroom technology, and activities.

Throughout the community, there is an incredible level of excitement as everyone makes final preparations for the arrival of our children.  It is with the same care, enthusiasm, and commitment that we approach the craft of teaching.  As the people you have entrusted with the education of your children, we have developed a strong educational program that addresses each child’s social, emotional and academic needs.  We promote an educational environment that engages the students in meaningful work so that they develop the critical skills necessary to become independent, responsible, and productive citizens.

The staff and I are eagerly waiting to welcome you to another wonderful school year and look forward to seeing families and students very soon!

If you have any questions please call me at 631-477-1950, ext. 1211 or contact me by email at:   tsaveras@gufsd.org

We wish you the best for a successful and rewarding school year!
