District News

Dear Parents & Guardians: I want to make families aware of a new social media app, which has recently come to my attention that could have serious implications. The Blue Whale Challenge is an app that instructs its participants, many of whom are preteens, to carry out increasingly dangerous tasks and self-harm over a 50 day period. Users are encouraged to tag friends on social media and “challenge” them to participate in the game.
Agawam has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education.

Welcome to the Agawam Public Schools website.  Our school district is a wonderful place for families to grow and learn together.  We are excited to be able to use this website to better communicate with students, parents, and the community-at-large.

The goal of this website is to keep our families and residents informed about the amazing things taking place in our eight schools.  Because we are proud of our website, we are working diligently to improve how information important to all stakeholders is delivered.  Consequently, we are utilizing a new information system which will allow us to highlight special programs and events.  In addition, it will provide access to the school calendar, sport schedules, and significant announcements.  Moreover, we will continue to develop individual classroom and program web pages and to provide important links to other educational sites.  Your patience, as we grow our website, is greatly appreciated.

Our district appreciates the assistance of volunteers and encourages parents/guardians to become members of our individual school Parent Teacher Organizations and School Improvement Councils.  We also invite parents and guardians to attend our Back-To-School Nights, Parent-Teacher Conferences, sporting events, as well as special events held throughout the school year.

Whether or not you are able to volunteer or attend events in the district, we ask that you keep in contact with your child’s teacher and school principal.  It is only by keeping the lines of communication open that we can continue to do what is in the best interest of the children placed in our care.  We value your input and welcome your support of our schools.

Sincerely,

Steven P. Lemanski
Superintendent of Schools
