Superintendent's Message


Superintendent Summer Coffee Hour

John Phelan, Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents/ Guardians, Community Members, Faculty and Staff:

My name is John Phelan and I am writing to introduce myself as the new Superintendent of the Belmont Public Schools.  Previously, I have been an assistant superintendent, principal, and teacher for over 25 years in the Boston and Milton Public Schools.  With your support, I look forward to a successful tenure as superintendent in Belmont.

I officially began as superintendent on July 1, 2014.  I am looking forward to meeting, speaking with, and listening to community members, town officials, parents, and Belmont Public School faculty/staff and students during the summer and fall months. These meetings and discussions will be an integral component of my assimilation into the Belmont community as well as the foundation for my entry plan.

In order to meet with as many school and community members as possible, I will be hosting several Superintendent Summer Coffee Hours, during July and August at our Central Office Conference room located at 644 Pleasant Street.  The purpose of these forums will be to get a sense of priority from the community regarding the future of the Belmont Public Schools.  If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled times, you can make an appointment to meet with me individually.  Please call Cathy Grant at 617-993-5401 to schedule an appointment.

Superintendent Summer Coffee Hour times are:

Day Date Time Location
 Tuesday  July 29, 2014  3:00 – 4:30 pm  Superintendent’s Conference Room
 Thursday  August 14, 2014  10:30-11:45 am  Superintendent’s Conference Room
 Monday  August 18, 2014  4:30 – 6:00 pm  Superintendent’s Conference Room
   September Dates  To Be Announced  

We are fully engaged in preparing for the start of school in September.  The Belmont Public School custodial staff is working hard cleaning each school; teachers and administrators are involved in several professional development sessions; and the principals, directors, and central office team are busy recruiting and hiring only the best professionals to work with your children in September.

I am honored to be appointed to this position in such a successful and supportive school community.  I would like to thank Dr. Tom Kingston, Janice Darias, and the Belmont School Committee for their support during the hiring and transition period.  I have been fortunate to experience a smooth transition to Belmont, directed by Dr. Kingston during May and June, while completing final duties in my previous district.

I am invigorated and energized by the opportunity to meet with you and to begin the process of listening to and learning about the town of Belmont and its schools. I look forward to meeting with you.  I hope you have many more sunny days this summer.

Sincerely,
