January 2023

Dear District 26 Community,


January is a time to celebrate new beginnings. The calendar rolls over and the solar cycle resets. As we step out into 2023, let us acknowledge all that is new so we can lead into the new year awake to our full potential. All the gorgeous possibilities of the new year lie ahead like a fresh field of snow.

In District 26, our District Team is primed and ready to jump in! We are bustling with newness: a new year, a new team, a new home. The recent NYC DOE reorganization expanded our original, intimate group of seven to a talent-packed, powerhouse of 23! Our new District 26 Team is a diverse and dynamic blend of old and new. We warmly welcome fresh faces, members who bring valuable insights and novel perspectives. And some team members are old friends, former Queens North Citywide Office partners who are shifting their support of our schools from a borough level to a district level.

Tripling in size since August, the District Team quickly outgrew our old home at MS 74. In December, Middle School 67 lovingly welcomed us into the Louis Pasteur family. As we settle in, the beautiful, electric buzz of a team alive with excitement and enthusiasm ripples through our new space. Assessing needs for the new year and strategically leveraging our combined talents and resources, we are building new relationships, and deepening and expanding old ones. Cognizant of our particular good fortune to be part of such a talented, dedicated, hard-working team, we are leading into 2023 confident and grounded in expectant curiosity. There are many new pieces in play, but we are all united in our old and unyielding commitment to excellence in education.

In District 26, our curated culture of compassion, responsibility, and leadership centers our instructional and social-emotional goals, which map out our framework for 2023. Grounding our goals in empathy and the expectation of excellence provides the grace and space necessary for everyone’s maximum personal growth. In the District Office and in all our 28 schools, everyone—administrators, teachers and staff, students and parents, alike—is looking happily and hopefully ahead to 2023. We are ready to step out into the new year and leave our own crisp prints in the fresh new snow.

Sincerely,

Superintendent Danielle Giunta and the District 26 Team
