This is an important transition year for our community as we welcome many new faces to our district.
We look forward to working with our new Superintendent, Lisa Brady, as she brings a wealth of
experience and knowledge to our district. We welcome our wonderful new Springhurst Principal, Julia
DiSalvo Drake and we’re excited to learn and collaborate with our new High School Principal, John
For the PTSA, this will be a year of community building, communication and collaboration with parent
groups across our district. We have renewed focus on streamlining our functions and working together
to give our community the best possible school-year experience.
We are excited to build on the enrichment programs already in place, find new ways to fulfill the needs
of the whole child and continue to create a sense of community within our district. We will work closely
with the Board of Education on communication to the public and we’ll keep you abreast of what’s
happening in education statewide.
We urge all of you to reach out and communicate with us directly. Let us know what the PTSA can do
for you. Volunteer your time. Get to know your fellow parents. Enrich your children’s lives.
We look forward to meeting each and every one of you and to working with you to reach and exceed
our goals of creating the best educational environment for the children of Dobbs Ferry.
Have a wonderful year!
