SCSD SUPERINTENDENT’S

SOMERS CENTRAL Dashb ard
SCHOOL DISTRICT

Dear Somers Community Members,
As we approach the end of the school-year, I want to update you on some of the exciting developments within our schools. 
Somers High School 
Approximately 92% of the students in our current senior class will continue their studies in college or university. Leading the graduating class this year are Valedictorian
Katie Taylor and Salutatorian Kevin Lee, who will attend Yale and UCLA, respectively. Congratulations to Katie and Kevin and thank you for representing our Somers
community so well.   
Another crowning achievement at the high school level, Somers High School received the National Blue Ribbon of Excellence this year. is accomplishment is a clear
measure of the commitment of all members of the high school and district community to ensure students are provided with a world-class education.  

e faculty, sta , administration and student leaders have been preparing throughout the year for the implementation of a new schedule at the high school next year,
which will include a school-wide common lunch. Please visit the Somers High School website for more details and information.  
Somers Middle School 

e Somers Middle School faculty is continuing the implementation of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP). All students will experience an
MYP unit next year in each content area. e following year students will have three MYP units in each content area, including interdisciplinary units. In the 2020-21
school year we will apply for full accreditation for the 2021-22 school year. A critical component of this work is the start of the world language program in sixth grade
next year, which would not have been possible without the voter support. Students will be able to choose from Spanish, Italian and French.  
Primrose and Somers Intermediate School  
At Primrose and Somers Intermediate Schools, faculty and sta have been diligently working on their identi ed School Success Plans. Both schools have also embarked
on developing stronger technology literacy skills, including basic coding using the technology program Learning.com.  One of the goals of this curriculum is to ensure
that our students are versatile digital learners and responsible digital citizens.   
Another area both schools continued to focus on this year was supporting the uniformed set of social justice standards – identity, diversity, justice and action. ese
learning expectations were often delivered through the morning meeting time, reading aloud, and social studies lessons.  
 
District-Wide  
A team of teachers, parents, students and administrators convened to form the Superintendent Education Equity Advisory Team (SEEAT). e group identi ed the
overall mission of SEEAT: 

e Superintendent Educational Equity Advisory Team provides direction and leadership in culturally relevant professional learning, as well as district practices. e
Team serves as the “educational equity lens” of SCSD and strives to provide positive change for all.  

e three focus areas are: 
1. Curriculum and learning activities that re ect the range of diversity in our district/community 
2. Organization structure that re ects the collective value of educational equity 
3. Learning that enhances the knowledge and skills of our faculty, sta , families and community to better meet the needs of our diverse district/community 

Please keep an eye out for the related actions for each focus area next year. 
is year we celebrate the TEAM Tuskers Mentoring program’s sixth year. is program has grown from six students to approximately 80 students. ank you to

Midge Miller (coordinator) and Phyllis Morrison (assistant coordinator) for their leadership, and to all the community volunteers for sharing their love, wisdom, and
compassion with our children. e program would not be possible without them. If you are interested in being a mentor, please go to the TEAM Tuskers page on our
website at www.somersschools.org.   
Budget-Election Results 
I want to thank the community for passing the school budget and approving the safety and security bond. is bond allows us to improve the safety measures in our
school, including, but not limited to, swipe key access down to the classroom level, increased video surveillance, and panic lockdown systems in all schools. 

e district budget maintains our current educational programs and provides enhancements like world language in sixth grade. We have stayed within the allowable
tax levy amount for the eighth year, and we are poised to continue to provide an unparalleled education to the children of Somers. Please join me in welcoming newly-
elected trustee Chadwick Olsen to the Board of Education. 
I hope you and your family have a safe and wonderful summer. I look forward to the start of another exciting school year in the fall. On behalf of our children, I thank
you for making Somers such an amazing place to live, learn, and laugh together.   
Sincerely,

Dr. Raymond H. Blanch

Superintendent of Schools

“Overall, I think could have
performed better,” Moon
admitted. “But I am very proud
of myself for being able to go to
states.”

Moon, just a sophomore,
said that competing against so
many amazing athletes was a
“little intimidating” and the
experience showed her how she
can improve.

“Everything at states was very
professional,” she said. “I was
surrounded by amazing athletes
and it was a little intimidating.
Before the race, I was talking
to some of the girls and they
were talking about their mind-
blowing times like it was no big
deal!”

Moon said that her plan for
summer training is to “focus
on my start coming out of the
blocks, so I can hopefully get a
new personal record.”

“I thought Ashley performed
well at states this weekend,”
Somers girls track and eld
coach John Vegliante said.
“ is was her rst time at the
state meet, which presents an
entirely di erent atmosphere
than the other meets we go to
throughout the year. It was a
great learning experience for
her and I’m proud of how she
handled everything. To make it
as a sophomore and gain that
experience now just sets her up
for more success in the future.
Her track career is just getting
started and I can’t wait to see
what she does in the years to
come!”
