Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
Members of the Croton-Harmon School Community, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you
know that after much reflection, I have decided to retire at the end of the
next school year in June of 2018.
Coming to Croton-Harmon Schools as
superintendent eight years ago was a dream come true. I was coming to a place
that has the same values regarding education that I have: a commitment to
excellence and continuous improvement; a desire to meet the needs of the whole
child; a belief that excellence is measured less by test scores and more by the
ability to prepare students with the necessary skills to succeed in a global
society. The district vision and mission are an exact match to mine. My heart
is full of a love for our children and a desire to make the best things happen
I know now that it is time for a new chapter in
my life. I have four granddaughters who are full of life and who
challenge everything, which I keep telling myself is exactly what we want for
children. I have always given my all, and I will continue to do so during the
2017-18 school year. I look forward to continuing our work, as guided by our
new five-year educational plan. Together, we will remain focused on the
children, and I am excited to be working another year with fantastic
colleagues, parents, board of education members and, of course, the
Sincerely, Dr. Edward R. Fuhrman, Jr.
