    Dear District Resident:

    Each year I am overwhelmed by the continued support that you bless us with at the Waterville CSD. Although we face fiscal uncertainty each and every year with our state aid allocation, WCS continues to provide a first-rate and cost-efficient education to every one of our students. Stay tuned for exciting information regarding a capital project vote coming in December 2019.

    It is our intention to make every school year better for our students than the one before. If you have any questions throughout the school year about our school programs or activities listed in our calendar, please call the appropriate building principal or the District Office at 841-3915. 

    As our teachers and support staff work this summer to get their classrooms ready to welcome your children back to school, I must remind you that regular parent involvement in the school system continues to be one of the keys to a student’s academic success. We encourage you to ask questions of your child’s teacher and to become an active participant in your child’s educational journey. Please let us know how we can help you do that.

    Our District continues to provide a wide selection of opportunities for our students. We have many of our students participating in Advanced Placement courses, dual credit college courses, “hands on” vocational experiences at BOCES, job shadowing at local businesses, as well as working at internships in area hospitals & businesses.

    Open house will be held on Wednesday, September 4 at the Jr/Sr High School and Thursday, September 19 at MPS; so come on in and see first-hand what’s new at your WCS. I look forward to seeing you at many of our performances, athletic contests and other school activities. Please continue to let us know how your school district can better serve you!!

    Finally, just over seven short years ago, I was blessed to take over the reigns as your school superintendent. This year, the BOE will embark on a search for my replacement as I will be retiring at the end of the 2019-2020 school year. I sincerely thank each and every one of you for welcoming me into this district and I wish you all the best this year and beyond!! Please don’t ever forget that “Together We Make a Difference”!!

     Best wishes,


    Charles G. Chafee

    Superintendent of Schools
