Superintendent Highlights

    When we chose our theme of “Moving Mountains”, little did I know that it would generate such heroic acts of faith across the District. I see us “Moving Mountains” of kindness and generosity each time a member of the POB family is in need, or a student needs that extra attention to get over the next hurdle. Through the magic of your labor, you cause the impossible to become a reality. I know that your families will celebrate this Thanksgiving season with the assurance that we have done our very best to make POB Schools a magical place for learning. In addition to having the most dedicated staff, BOE and PTA in my life to work daily miracles, I am also giving thanks for my first Thanksgiving with my grandson Luke. Such blessings! From my table to yours, I wish you a Thanksgiving of abundant joy and gratitude for your blessings. Gratefully, Lorna
