Greetings from the desktop of the Superintendent of Schools. This summer I was honored to provide a tour to members of the Cattaraugus Central School Class of 1984. They were in town to celebrate their 30th reunion and wanted to see the changes to our campus…man were they impressed! We started in T Wolf Stadium and once they walked on the turf and ran on the track they asked the rhetorical question, “Do the students know how lucky they are to have this?” We then made our way inside the building and into the theatre where again they exclaimed, “Do the students know how lucky they are to have this?” Along each stop of our tour; from the TV studio to the DL room to the library to the science labs to the music suite to the cafeteria to the fitness center and everywhere in between they continuously responded, “Do the students know how lucky they are to have this?” To our students, families, community, faculty, staff, and administration, my hope is that we all know and will always appreciate the answer to their question!
Cattaraugus-Little Valley Central School is more than simply an impressive place; we are a professional learning community that is dedicated to continuous improvement for the success of our students and their readiness for college and career. Improvement as an outcome of:
With our impressive facilities and dedication to continuous improvement, my vision for the future remains steadfast… it is for every CLV student to be college and career ready and achieve their dream…and my hope and our district goal is that their readiness and dream begins with a New York State Regents or Advanced Regents diploma.
