Dear Upper Moreland Families and Community,
I am honored and privileged to begin the 2022-2023 school year as Superintendent for the Upper Moreland Township School District. It is exciting to join a community that takes great pride in the work we do together for our kids. We are proud of our community and proud of the amazing things our students do in the classroom, in various school activities, and in the community. #UMProud
Our staff have been busy during the summer months preparing our classrooms, buildings, and grounds for our 3,200 students. We are excited to open our classroom doors to our students and start the new school year. I am grateful to the many staff members who have worked diligently during the hot summer months to get everything ready for the start of school.
During this school year, to help us meet the needs of our students and families, we are targeting some key areas. First, we will reopen our Upper Moreland Primary School and our Upper Moreland Intermediate School as two separate schools. Though both schools are located in the same building, we value how each school’s unique culture meets the needs of our elementary students. Second, we will offer a cyber program for those students who need an online learning environment. Students who opt to attend our cyber program will earn an Upper Moreland diploma and be able to participate in extracurricular activities. For more information on our cyber program, please select this link for Upper Moreland Cyber Academy. Finally, we will focus on strengthening the climate in our school communities to support a respectful learning environment where all students feel safe, valued, and heard. With feedback from students, families, and staff, we will set expectations for our schools to create a welcoming and productive learning environment for students and staff.
