Letter: BET Members Welcome Superintendent, Dr. Toni Jones
To the Editor,
We extend warm welcoming wishes to the Town’s new Superintendent of Schools Dr. Toni Jones, and to her family. We look forward to working with Dr. Jones in our capacity as the six Republican members of the Board of Estimate and Taxation who have served on the Board for a cumulative 42 years.
We are proud of Greenwich’s public-school system, that within the last decade produced the national teacher of the year from the Town’s alternative high school; a winner of the national science award; national recognition for many other students in STEM and other studies; and globally admired music, art, and athletic programs. We support superior education for all Town school age children.
We are optimistic that Dr. Jones will serve our school district for many years to come and will honor and respect those principles that brought global renown to our schools and Town. This is exemplified by the thoughtful and stirring approach she took at the annual Superintendent’s Back to School Gathering to welcome new teachers and returning teachers and staff. We are thrilled that Dr. Jones, and her family will live within our community. We look forward to working with Dr. Jones to make our Greenwich public school system even more outstanding.
This letter was written by the republican members of the Board of Estimate and Taxation (BET): Bill Drake, Andy Duus, Karen Fassuliotis, Debra Hess, Michael Mason, and Leslie Tarkington.
