Dear Philipsburg-Osceola Families,

It’s difficult to believe that my administration is entering its fourth year.  We’ve made many changes to the district, and now it’s time to refine those changes to keep making the district better for our children and grandchildren.  We are implementing new math programs across the district in grades K-12.  Glencoe, at the high school, will complement Go Math in grades K-8.  In addition, we will be introducing a new math supplemental support called ST Math in grades K-6.  “Hands-On” science will go from one nine week marking period to half of the year.  I’m also thrilled that our new language arts series has vocabulary integrated with spelling.  Our students still need to learn how to spell without spell check.  They need to learn to write in cursive just as we did in school.  The world is changing, but students still should not lose the art of properly penning a letter or signing their name.  Unfortunately, the district produced a generation of students who were not taught this consistently, but our teachers and administrators have worked hard to reverse course.  I’m extremely proud of the accomplishments that we have made as a school system, but it would be foolish to think that there isn’t a lot of work left to do.  I want to see our work through and develop a system that self-improves.  We will pilot a few social studies series this year in preparation for a new curriculum in the 2017-2018 school year, as that is our last piece to a complete curriculum.  Our elementary schools and high schools have consistently improved and are performing well.  The middle school had a rough start.  Any time that grade levels are changed and teachers are placed into a new environment, it takes a while to stabilize things.  Performance has been improving at the middle school, but we are not there yet.  We have excellent leadership at that building and throughout the district, and I know that our principals will work with our excellent teaching staff to make the middle school the best that it can be.  Besides the middle school, our high school and Osceola Mills Elementary need some work.  We replaced the gym floor, restored our auditorium, renovated our soccer complex, replaced lighting and much more over the past few years.  We will plan for replacing boilers at Osceola Mills Elementary, redesigning science labs, and finishing the athletic complex at the high school in the future.  I, again, want to thank the community for all of your continued support for our school system.  Your support has allowed us to continue to move this district forward. 

Thank you,

Gregg Paladina
Superintendent
