The following is a message from Matawan Aberdeen Regional School District Superintendent David Healy:
Dear Matawan-Aberdeen School Community:
As we prepare for our Thanksgiving break, and I reflect on the many things that I am thankful for, I would be remiss if I did not share with you that I am personally thankful to all of you for your support, your many efforts and the positive influence you have had on the children you serve.
My observations have shown me that every day, our teachers, support staff, volunteers, administrators and members of our Board of Education are always prepared to provide the best possible experiences for our students. Not only do we work together to help students learn, but we also provide a safe and nurturing place for them to flourish as children and young adults. I would like to thank our parents and our other community partners who play such an integral role in the lives of our students.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy many of us have been forced to live life a bit differently by accepting losses, making sacrifices while rebuilding our lives and the lives of others. For some, life may never be the same but it is through adversity that we often find strength and discover who we are as individuals and as a community. On behalf of the Matawan-Aberdeen School Community I want to personally thank all of you for your strength and support of those families and colleagues who have suffered tremendous losses. I am extremely proud of your efforts.
It is my sincere wish that every member of our Matawan-Aberdeen family has a safe, restful and happy Thanksgiving break, where you count your blessings and focus on enjoying precious time with friends and family.
David M. Healy
Superintendent of Schools
