Parents and Honeoye Community members,

A new school year has begun. It is an exciting time to renew momentum of learning and growth while recognizing a new start, of sorts. With our incoming kindergarteners (HCS Class of 2031!) there is a genuine beginning of a journey that is oft reminisced in later years, such as with our recent commencement celebration. For others, September brings a newness that follows a reboot, to use a technology comparison, which results in fresh energy and excitement about the next phase. That sentiment is shared among all ages to include students and adults that support them.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”                -Martin Luther King Jr.

The 2018-19 school year brings with it a rich history that is Honeoye along with change to enhance our culture. The above quote is a reminder of the comprehensive nature of our charge with children and the commitment to a culture of continuous improvement. This year, we will continue momentum in the instructional delivery of personalizing learning to further engage students. We will strive for best practice to include multiple pathways for student success. Our staff professional development this summer has been that of personalizing learning. We are committed to further training in focus areas of academic progress, intervention responses, social/emotional factors, and mental health. In the area of safety, we are experiencing change that will reflect the ongoing commitment to long range and day to day operations, including the full-time presence of our School Resource Officer. New practices and enhancements during the 2018-19 school year are exciting and we look forward to your partnership across all areas of HCS.

This website includes events and many opportunities to celebrate the growth of students, talents of staff, and involvement of families. Please take the time to look through the scheduled events to set aside the time to be a part of it. Be sure to attend those activities that are familiar to you as well as to explore something new. As stated in the HCS Vision Statement, we interact in ways that will ensure that “a sense of unity, heartfelt pride and a vivid spirit will distinguish Honeoye students.”

Best wishes for a great 2018-19 school year!

Sincerely,
 
David C. Bills Signature
