Superintendent of Schools

  • One of my core beliefs about education is best summed up in a quote by James Comer…
     “There can be no significant learning without a significant relationship.”

    I will continue to share a consistent message that the relationship between teachers and students is critical to academic success.  While I know this to be true, it is also critical that relationships be formed between the school and the home.   As we move forward together the importance of the home-school connection at APW cannot be over emphasized.   I invite you to keep in close contact with teachers and attend the many events we hold throughout the year to celebrate the accomplishments of our children.  We look forward to developing partnerships with each of you as we work towards our mutual goal of ensuring student success.

    I look forward with great anticipation as we redefine what is possible for our students.  We will work together as a community of educators to increase rigor, expand opportunities, and provide an unparalleled level of support to each of our students.  On behalf of all of the professionals in our school community we are committed to fulfilling our mission at APW:

    Academics at its best   Pursuit of excellence  Where students come first

    I invite you to reach out to me any time at 315-625-5251 or eknuth@apw.cnyric.org. 

    Thank you for entrusting us with your children.  We will not let you down.
