    Elementary School Redistricting Plan Public Meetings

    The redistricting plan proposal for Booth Hill, Elizabeth Shelton, Long Hill, Mohegan, and Sunnyside elementary schools was presented to the community on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 .    This presentation contained six scenarios.  After questions and comments from the public and district staff - it appears that Scenario 5 offers the best long-term redistricting outcome for all of our elementary schools. Therefore, Scenario 5 will be the focus of the next redistricting forum scheduled for: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 @ 6:30 PM in the Shelton Intermediate School Auditorium on 675 Constitution Blvd. North 

    Please see the attached PowerPoint Presentation for more detailed information on the  Scenario 5 proposal.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

   

Welcome to the Mohegan Elementary School Website. Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after you visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer.

 

Mohegan Elementary School serves students in grades K through grade 4. The MOH staff, parents, and students work together to create an exciting and meaningful environment that provides all students with a wealth of educational experiences. Our students experience the excitement of learning in an environment that encourages critical thinking skills, problem solving, and the ability to access information. They work toward acquiring the technological skills for the 21st century. We strive to create the context of "lifelong learning" through the use of computers, modern research capability, and interactive media.

 

Our goal is to provide a safe and orderly school climate that promotes positive self-esteem, student commitment toward citizenship, individual improvement, and responsibility for personal behavior. In addition to the core academics, Mohegan School has a strong foundation in Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), which guides our approach to teaching positive behaviors and celebrating the great accomplishments of our students.  Our monthly school-wide assemblies recognize students who are being safe, responsible, and respectful.  

 

 We value the cultural diversity that exists in our school by celebrating the uniqueness of each individual student and staff member. We teach our students that by respecting everyone, we become a stronger community.

One of the most critical pieces to student success is the connection between home and school. I encourage all of you to be actively engaged with your child’s learning. Our PTO is a wonderful organization that is always looking for more members. We do believe that “It takes a village to raise a child”, so we welcome your involvement. . We hope that our website will assist in the endeavor.  As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call the main office at (203) 929-4121.

 

Sincerely,

Kristen Santilli

Principal
