Dear Parents and Guardians,
I would like to take this opportunity to both introduce myself and to wish each of you a very Happy and Healthy New Year. My name is Stephen Ochser and as you may know, I have been appointed as the Interim Principal at Upper Nyack Elementary School. This is not my first interim experience in Nyack as I have previously served as the Interim Principal at Valley Cottage Elementary.
Anne Roberts has left this school in amazing shape. The instructional program is outstanding and the management of the school is superb. I know that all of us wish her well in retirement and truly miss her presence at Upper Nyack. My welcome to this school has been amazing from both parents and members of the staff and for that I am grateful. The students have already made me feel like a long standing member of the school by both their actions and deeds.
Going forward, I am hoping to meet all of you at upcoming school events. Please feel free to call or stop in as the need arises and I thank you all for the opportunity to work with you, this amazing staff and outstanding students.
