  • Dear Sweet Home Community,

    I am delighted to introduce the inaugural edition of Sweet Home Source Magazine, a dynamic and innovative re-branding of the Your Schools newsletter. This magazine represents a significant step forward in our ongoing efforts to enhance the district's communication practices and strategies.

    As we embark on this exciting journey, our aim is to not only keep you well-informed, but also to foster a sense of unity and pride within our community. The Sweet Home Source Magazine will serve as a comprehensive resource, featuring stories that highlight the achievements of our students, faculty, and staff, as well as providing insights into our district's educational initiatives, events, and community partnerships.

    Much of our work moving forward as a district focuses on our upcoming capital improvement project. As you know, we are soliciting input from all stakeholder groups, including utilizing the Thought Exchange platform earlier this year. We thank the 756 school community members that participated in the ThoughtExchange. You provided 635 unique thoughts about our facilities, and also provided 20,413 ratings on those thoughts. Our goal in the planning phase is to ensure that everyone who wants to share an idea about our facilities is heard. We are now in the process of holding focus groups with key stakeholders to unpack the data and build the scope of the next capital project. We recognize that our facilities play a crucial role in shaping the educational experience of our students, and we are committed to investing in infrastructure that supports our mission.

    We encourage you to engage with the Sweet Home Source Magazine, as it will serve as a valuable bridge between our District and our community. Thank you for your ongoing support as we work together to shape the future of the Sweet Home Central School District. Together, we can build a community that thrives on collaboration, communication, and a shared commitment to educational excellence.

    Sincerely,
    Dr. Michael V. Ginestre – Superintendent of Schools
