Welcome to Cranberry
Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Brad Porinchak, Principal
Welcome back Cranberry Cougars! I am so excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year. It has been a little lonely here this summer. Cooper has been traveling the country seeing all the sites and landmarks across America! I can’t wait for him to come back and share all that he has seen and learned! I really hope you were able to have fun this summer with friends and family. Our amazing staff is looking forward to a great school year full of learning and fun!
Mrs. Rini and I will be working hard to maintain high achievement level by encouraging and celebrating our students. In order to support our commitment to providing students with a high-quality education, we will be focusing on making learning visible and high expectation teaching. It is our goal to help students understand what and why they are learning, in addition to understanding the next steps in their education while they grow as learners. We are excited to work with our little cougars and watch them reach their highest potential.
Please review your copy of the Student/Family Handbook. We ask that you familiarize yourself with our school policies and procedures. Please return the last page with your signature. You will receive a hardcopy the first week of school and you can always access it through our website (under Resources).
We are looking to expand our School Advisory Council (SAC) membership. Please consider being a part of this important Council. We meet once a month at 3:45 pm. A signup sheet will be sent home the first week of school. Be on the lookout for it.
Important items to be on the look-out for:
- Student/Family Handbook (https://www.sarasotacountyschools.net/schools/cranberry)
- Title I Compacts are reviewed and signed at Parent Conferences.
- Student Insurance Info
- Lunch Menu (https://www.sarasotacountyschools.net), then under Find It Fast
- SAC Information/Sign Up sheet
I look forward to another successful school year and the opportunity to get to know your child. Remember – WE ARE CRANBERRY. WE ARE COUGARS. WE ARE STRONG.
