It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the new Superintendent of the New Brighton Area School District. Having served for nearly ten years in the district, I can confidently say there is a proud tradition of excellence here and it is my intention to continue to build upon that tradition. Commitment, collaboration, and trustworthiness will be the cornerstones of my leadership to ensure that we create the most effective learning environment for our students, focus on fiscal responsibility and maintain open lines of communication so all efforts may aid in various community groups working together.
New Brighton is a family-centered, vibrant community with businesses, places of worship and schools to envy. I am proud of this community and the citizens who call it home. There is work to be done, however, to ensure that each child achieves nothing less than his/her fullest potential. Parents, students, teachers, administrators and community members must all take a vested interest in the successes and failures of our schools. Only through working together can we create a community where service, success, and high standards are not only the expectation, but the reality.
I encourage you be involved in the schools, attend a concert, or cheer on our teams during athletic competitions. We should all make it a goal to demonstrate Lion Pride in all that occurs throughout the community. It is my hope that the 2013-2014 school year is the very best yet and I look forward to working together in the future.
Yours in education,
Dr. Joseph A. Guarino
