A Message from the Superintendent of Schools
                        Dear Croton-Harmon Students, Parents, Staff and                  I encourage our Croton-Harmon School Community to be bold in our critical
                        Community,                                                       thinking and always choose to demonstrate character by taking initiative, thinking
                                                                                         flexibly, and using empathy.
                        It is with pure joy that I welcome you to the 2021-2022
                        school year. It is a time for new beginnings and wonderful       Although this has been a time of significant change, many constants remain. Our
                        opportunities. Over the past year our students, faculty, staff   administrators, teachers and staff eagerly wait to greet our students and are ready
                        and community have all shown great resilience. As we look        to begin another incredible school year. So let’s get started!!
                        toward the future, we know how effectively we can work
                        through challenges together as a learning community.             Yours in Mission Possible,

                         As I reflect on our tagline, “Think.Create.Reflect.Respect.”
                         I am reminded about how critical thinking, (the process         Dr. Deborah O’Connell
of continuously asking questions while acquiring knowledge, developing a plan,           Dr. Deborah O’Connell, Superintendent of Schools
evaluating a claim, supporting an idea, and considering different perspectives),
is central to our work as a school district, and know that our teachers and
administrators have been busy planning for this
school year which I am sure promises to be rich with
opportunities to think critically.

Additionally, our tagline speaks to one’s character.
Developing character is equally as important as
being a critical and creative thinker. We placed
character-building traits on our Profile of a Graduate
graphic. You will find them listed on the back
of head: “initiative,” “flexibility,” and “empathy.”
They remind us that building character is part of our
mission, and that each day is an opportunity to
contribute to a culture of respect by how we treat
one another, our community, our environment, and
our world.

Think. Create. Reflect. Respect.
Challenging all students to be
critical & creative thinkers.

District Profile
Croton-Harmon Schools are warm and nurturing places where
teachers know their students and are as invested in their social and
emotional growth as they are in their intellectual development. This
personalized approach makes the Croton-Harmon School District one
of the most successful in a county known for its high quality public
schools. The district has been recognized by the state and the nation
for its outstanding programs and services. Both the Carrie E. Tompkins
Elementary School and the Pierre Van Cortlandt Middle School
have been named Schools of Excellence by the U.S. Department of
Education. The high school has been named one of Westchester’s top
high schools and was included in the Newsweek and U.S. News & World
Report listing of the top high schools in the nation. In addition, the       Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School
high school has been recognized for its positive reforms in nationally
published books on education.

Located in Westchester County, approximately 33 miles north of
New York City, the school district encompasses parts of the towns of
Cortlandt and Yorktown and includes the village of Croton-on-Hudson.
The district population is approximately 15,000, with more than 1,500
students expected to attend the Croton-Harmon schools this year.

Because of the wide variety of learning approaches and programs,
Croton-Harmon students can reach their full potential, develop the
habits of mind and social skills necessary to become lifelong learners
and be able to contribute positively to society. The district’s tagline is
“Think. Create. Reflect. Respect.”
