  • Nicolas Cracco named new principal at Henry Barnard

    The City School District of New Rochelle has appointed Dr. Nicolas Cracco as the new principal of the Henry Barnard Early Childhood Center. The Board of Education approved the appointment of Dr. Cracco at its meeting last week.

    Dr. Cracco was the assistant principal of the Early Childhood Discovery and Design Magnet School, P.S. 185, in New York. He previously taught mathematics at Knowledge and Power Preparatory Academy in the Bronx.

    "His experience as an educator and administrator will be a great asset as we continue to provide an excellent early childhood education for students at Henry Barnard," said Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne.

    Dr. Cracco received a bachelor's degree in psychology from C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University, a master's degree in mathematics from the City University of New York, and a doctorate of education in instructional leadership from St. John's University. He also earned an advanced certificate in school building and school district leadership from St. John's University.

    "It is an honor to come lead a prestigious school such as Henry Barnard Early Childhood Center as its next principal," Dr. Cracco said. "I look forward to building on the programs that are in place and can't wait to begin working with the parents, students, teachers and staff."

    He will join Henry Barnard as principal on Jan. 3, 2017.

  • Thanksgiving Message from the Superintendent of Schools - Español Abaja

    This Thanksgiving and every Thanksgiving, we, as members of The City School District of New Rochelle, are thankful for and embrace our rich diversity. Please read this message from our Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian Osborne shared at the November 22 Board of Education meeting:

    Since our last meeting on November 1st there was an election for President of the United States.  In the wake of this Presidential election, many voices have been heard throughout the country and here in New Rochelle. Some of those voices have expressed concern about divisions among us; some have expressed hope that we will be able to come together as one country; and some have expressed messages of hate and contempt for others which are deeply troubling.

    At least for the moment, we are seeing an escalated national level of intolerance, incivility and intimidation.  Our students are well aware of current events, and many have articulated to me that there is fear among some that they will not be afforded the protections they deserve, or will be treated as non-participants in the American dream.

    The success of public education in New Rochelle and the meaning of our mission statement is more important than ever.   As the leader of this school district, I am confident that I speak for our faculty, our administrators, our support staff and our community when I say that our schools will and must be a place of welcome and support for all of our students.  All means All.  Our mission statement says that we embrace our rich diversity.  We are intentional in this language.  It is not our mission to tolerate difference or accept those unlike ourselves. We embrace our rich diversity.

    This means that we actively welcome, celebrate, support, and serve all our students and families, and that the differences among us add value for all of us.  All means all - all ethnicities, all religions, all races, all family structures, all sexual identities, all sexual orientations, all learning challenges, all differences in physical abilities, all places of birth, all immigrants, all income levels, all walks of life.  

    In the presidential campaign and the aftermath of the election, the rhetoric of our national political discourse at the highest levels has stereotyped, targeted and blamed many groups by name, provoking fear and doubt.  In response to that rhetoric, let us be clear that embracing our rich diversity means that here in the City School District of New Rochelle, we honor, embrace and celebrate those who are Muslim, Jewish, Christian, or searching; those that are of African descent, who are Latino or Asian or Indian or Native American, or European; those that are biracial or multiracial; those who are undocumented or documented or citizen, born in the US or anywhere else; those who are differently abled or who learn differently; those whose native language is Spanish or Creole or English or any other language; those who are female, transgendered, cisgendered or male; those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transexual, or questioning - and all who are rich and complex intersections.  And we mean this about each one of our children and staff and parents and community members, taking our individual differences not as something to tolerate but as something to celebrate, something that adds value, to be supported and protected.    

    Accordingly, in this time of uncertainty, we reaffirm our commitment to the dignity of each person and the values that reflect the strength of our democracy, and the continuing vitality of our national founding documents:

     

    ♦    Our schools will remain places of civility and respect, and we will not accept abusive conduct towards any student.

    ♦    Our schools will remain havens of safety for all students where differences in race, ethnicity or religion will be respected and appreciated

    ♦    Our schools will remain havens of safety for students of all gender identities or sexual orientation.

    ♦    Our schools will remain havens of safety for all students of all national origins and without regard to immigration status.

     

    I’ll end the superintendent's update by quoting from Principal Richardson’s powerful letter to students the day after the election: “I want you to know that you are loved and supported by your family,  all of the adults here at school as well as those in the community. We are so fortunate to be a part of such a diverse, vibrant and inclusive community as New Rochelle.  I ask that you never take this for granted and take full advantage of the opportunities presented by living and learning in a community as diverse as this one.”

    *********************************************************************************l*****************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

    Desde nuestra última reunión el día 1 de noviembre hubo elecciones para Presidente de los Estados Unidos. A raíz de esta elección presidencial, muchas voces se han escuchado en todo el país y aquí en New Rochelle. Algunas de esas voces han expresado su preocupación por las divisiones entre nosotros; algunos han expresado la esperanza de que podamos unirnos como un solo país; y algunos han expresado mensajes de odio y desprecio hacia otros que son profundamente preocupantes.

    Por el momento, estamos viendo un escalado a nivel nacional de intolerancia, incivilidad e intimidación. Nuestros estudiantes están muy conscientes de los acontecimientos actuales, y muchos me han expresado  que hay miedo entre algunos que no se les dará las protecciones que se merecen, o serán tratados como no participantes en el sueño americano.

    El éxito de la educación pública en New Rochelle y el significado de nuestra declaración de misión es más importante que nunca.  Como líder de este distrito escolar, estoy seguro de que hablo por nuestra facultad, nuestros administradores, nuestro personal de apoyo y nuestra comunidad cuando digo que nuestras escuelas serán y deben ser un lugar de bienvenida y apoyo para todos nuestros estudiantes. Todos, significa, Todos. Nuestra declaración de misión dice que abrazamos nuestra rica diversidad. Somos intencionales en este lenguaje. No es nuestra misión simplemente  tolerar la diferencia o aceptar a aquellos que no son como nosotros. Nosotros abrazamos nuestra rica diversidad.

    Esto significa que acogemos activamente, celebramos, apoyamos y servimos a todos nuestros estudiantes y familias, y que las diferencias entre nosotros agregan valor a todos nosotros. Todos significa Todos - todas las etnias, todas las religiones, todas las razas, todas las estructuras familiares, todas las identidades sexuales, todas las orientaciones sexuales, todos los desafíos de aprendizaje, todas las diferencias en las capacidades físicas, todos los lugares de nacimiento, todos los inmigrantes, todos los niveles de ingresos y diferentes facetas de la vida.

    En la campaña presidencial y las secuelas de las elecciones, la retórica de nuestro discurso político nacional a los niveles más altos ha estereotipado, apuntado y culpado a muchos grupos por su nombre, provocando temor y duda. En respuesta a esa retórica, seamos claros que abrazar nuestra rica diversidad significa que aquí, en el Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de New Rochelle, honramos, abrazamos y celebramos a aquellos que son musulmanes, judíos, cristianos o los que andan en busca de  creencia religiosa; Aquellos que son de ascendencia africana, que son latinos o asiáticos o indios o nativos americanos o europeos; Aquellos que son birraciales o multirraciales; Aquellos que están indocumentados o documentados o ciudadanos, nacidos en los Estados Unidos o en cualquier otro lugar; Aquellos que tienen diferentes habilidades o que aprenden de otra manera; Aquellos cuya lengua materna es el español o criollo o el inglés o cualquier otro idioma; Los que son mujeres, transgénico, cisgendered o varón; Aquellos que son homosexuales, lesbianas, bisexuales, transexuales, o que cuestionan su sexualidad- y todos aquellos ricos en complejas intercesiones. Y queremos decir esto sobre cada uno de nuestros hijos y el personal y los padres y miembros de la comunidad, teniendo nuestras diferencias individuales no como algo que tolerar sino como algo para celebrar, algo que agrega valor, para ser apoyado y protegido.

    En este momento de incertidumbre, reafirmamos nuestro compromiso con la dignidad de cada persona y los valores que reflejan la fuerza de nuestra democracia y la continua vitalidad de nuestros documentos fundacionales nacionales:

    ♦          Nuestras escuelas seguirán siendo lugares de civilidad y respeto, y no ceptaremos conductas abusivas hacia ningún estudiante.

    ♦          Nuestras escuelas seguirán siendo refugios de seguridad para todos los estudiantes             donde las diferencias en raza, etnia o religión serán respetadas y apreciadas

    ♦          Nuestras escuelas permanecerán como refugio de seguridad para los estudiantes    de todas las identidades de género u orientación sexual.

    ♦          Nuestras escuelas seguirán siendo un refugio de seguridad para todos los estudiantes de todos los orígenes nacionales y sin tener en cuenta el estatus migratorio.

    Terminaré la actualización del superintendente citando la carta del director Richardson a los estudiantes el día después de las elecciones: "Quiero que sepas que eres amado y apoyado por tu familia, todos los adultos aquí en la escuela, la comunidad. Somos tan afortunados de ser parte de una comunidad tan diversa, vibrante e inclusiva como New Rochelle. Les pido que nunca tomen esto por sentado y aprovechen al máximo las oportunidades que ofrece vivir y aprender en una comunidad tan diversa como esta.”
