FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
Ronald J. Gorsky
The 2013-2014 school year brings new ideas, new hope and a renewed energy to build upon our success. Many more students and families have joined our school this year with a wonderful opportunity to earn their diploma.
I look forward to meeting all of the parents/guardians of our new and returning students at Parent/Teacher Conferences on Thursday October 24th at 5:00pm. Report Cards will be distributed to you at this time (not to your child). It is essential for you to meet your child’s teachers and begin this year on the right foot. If you are not available in the evening, conferences are also held on Friday, October 25th from 12noon – 2pm. I believe very strongly in developing a close partnership with you to ensure your child’s success at our school.
I call upon each of you to get involved in our school activities. Joining the PTA, attending parent workshops and seminars, fundraising, or calling and visiting the school, are just a few of the ways to help us - help your child.
Concord High School is the school of choice for many families looking for a small, supportive environment. Thank you for your ongoing support for our school.
Together we are making a difference!
