From Superintendent Natalie Brubaker
Dear Saber Families,
As the summer winds down and the fields, courts and pool are filled with the familiar sounds of pre-season workouts, and our hallways are filled with teachers readying their classrooms and new students and families touring our buildings, it’s easy to find excitement for the possibilities of a new school year. I look forward to my twenty-fourth year as a Saber and the honor to again work alongside the best students, staff and families that a person could wish for! Over the course of the past school year, we embarked toward developing a Strategic Plan for the District to help to guide and align our efforts with the things you identified as most important to the Susquehanna Valley community. As a part of this Strategic Plan, which can be viewed via THIS LINK, we have defined our mission, vision and core values and identified three priority areas on which to focus. Central to all we do are the children we strive to serve each and every day. As we approach a new school year with renewed energy and enthusiasm, our partnerships and teamwork will ensure a great year ahead! Thank you for trusting
your children with us and for being a part of our Saber Family!
Natalie Brubaker
