A few mornings ago, as I was driving to Isaac Young, I noticed a great brilliance of light coming over the Sound. I drove into the Hudson Park area and spotted a spectacular sunrise. I thought about the start of a new day, and a new year, and I began to feel optimistic. We are very fortunate to be a part of the New Rochelle Community and, specifically, I am very privileged to serve as the principal of the great Isaac E. Young Middle School. I expect impressive things this year and I want all our families to know that I am here and available to you at any time.

Hace unos días cuando venía manejando en la mañana hacia Isaac, note una luz brillante que venía de la costa. Maneje hacia el área del parque Hudson y note una hermosa salida del sol.
