WELCOME TO THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR!
Dear Parents and Guardians:
It is with great pride that I introduce myself to our HBE community as your new Principal, appointed to replace Mrs. Korycki, who retired in June. Our HBE family wishes her the best in retirement.
My name is Mr. Jared Kahmar and I am a product of the Port Jervis school system. I graduated from Port Jervis High School in 1996 and have spent my career serving the students and families of our district. Past positions and experiences that I have had in our system include Social Studies Teacher, Athletic Director, Coach, Peer-Leadership Advisor, and most recently, Assistant Principal at the High School. These experiences have prepared me to serve as your new Principal.
As we have settled into the new year, we will have several academic initiatives to focus on. They include:
HBE is now celebrating 40 years of excellence. Our building
opened in the 1975-1976 school year and we will be promoting and
celebrating our great tradition throughout the year. I look
forward to working with our students and families while
continuing the HBE legacy of success and excellence.
Please contact me with any questions at
Have a great year! Great Habits Make Great Leaders, Go HBE
and Go PORT!
