Superintendent's Blog

Superintendent and student

Hello, friends! We are extremely excited to welcome back to school all of our students, faculty and staff for the start of another enriching year of teaching, learning and growing together! We always expect fun and exciting things to happen in Hancock!

I am personally excited to get things started with respect to immediately engaging your children with a wide array of activities and opportunities. These are specifically designed to empower them with the knowledge and skills they need to fully realize all of their hopes, dreams and aspirations.

To this very important end, I encourage everyone to frequently check our website (www.hancock.stier.org), our social-media pages (Facebook and Twitter), and the Hancock Herald to stay up to date on everything happening in our District.

In closing, I am pleased to encourage all parents, caretakers and guardians to take full advantage of the wealth of resources, programs and opportunities that are available to your child during the 2019-2020 academic year. Your comments and constructive feedback are always welcomed, so please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you in any way.

It is our great privilege to provide first-rate services on a daily basis! I look forward to seeing you at school soon!

Respectfully,
Terrance P. Dougherty, Ph.D.
