New teachers get warm welcome at Levittown Public Schools

September 14, 2018 by  

Some teachers, like some students, will be the “new kids on the block” at the start of the year. To help new faculty members transition into their new jobs, the central administration of Levittown Public Schools and the Board of Education recently hosted a New Teacher Orientation.

During the two-day program, 44 new teachers and other faculty members had a chance to “learn the ropes” and get to know their colleagues and the rest of the school district before the 2018-2019 academic year kicked off.

School districts that have recently hired a number of new staff or teachers can use business card printing as a way to welcome new employees and allow them to introduce themselves.

The orientation took place on August 22 and 23 at the Levittown Memorial Education Center. Dr. Tonie McDonald, the Superintendent of Schools and Peggy Marenghi, the Board President, welcomed the new faculty and congratulated them on their new jobs. They then introduced other members of the administration and schoolboard.

Events during the orientation included an icebreaker followed by a workshop that outlined expectations for the new staff, and the provided details about the history of Levittown and the school district.

There was also an opportunity for staff members to mix and mingle before the first day of school on September 5.
