Dear Frankford Families, My name is Robert “Bob” Mooney. The Frankford Township Board of Education appointed me as Interim Superintendent/Elementary School Principal and I began work on August 14th. I feel honored and privileged to serve this fine School District and thank the Board of Education for the opportunity. To date, I’ve enjoyed over fifty years of service in public schools as a teacher, coach and administrator. I look forward to continuing my work in this important field. Recently, I’ve had an opportunity to review many of the highly successful programs as well as curricular and extracurricular activities offered to the students of the Frankford Township Schools and I must say that I'm impressed with the entire operation. As I mentioned to the Board of Education during the interview process, my goals are simple. I will be helpful and supportive to the students, staff, parents, members of the community and the Board of Education and will ensure that the next Superintendent is fully aware of all important Frankford Township School District operational and educational guidelines, procedures and practices. Without a doubt, a smooth transition is of paramount importance. I would also like to congratulate Braden Hirsch on an outstanding career as the educational leader in this District and thank him for all of the assistance he gave me over the last few weeks. I hope you and your family are enjoying a happy and healthy summer break. If you get an opportunity, please stop by to say “hello”. Thank you, Bob Mooney

Hello, My name is Kurt Walton, and I am excited and honored to serve as your Interim Middle School Principal. I completed a thirty-one year career in 2017 after serving as a history teacher, head basketball coach, athletic director, vice principal and principal. I served my final twenty years in the wonderful Newton School District. Upon my retirement, I was named the CEO of a tremendous local non-profit organization called Pass It Along. Most recently I have enjoyed serving as an interim administrator at several local schools and feel fortunate to have another opportunity here being a Bulldog. My wife, Beth, was a math teacher at Wallkill Valley Regional and then a guidance counselor at High Point Regional High School. My two children, Rachel and Adam, both attended and loved High Point, went on to college, and are now working in their professional life. We lived in Wantage for thirty-one years and recently downsized to a townhome in Hamburg. Soon, we intend to move south and forge a new chapter in our lives. Professionally, I believe that all aspects of educational life should revolve around Trust, Respect and Support; or as I refer to it, TRS. Rest assured that I will deal with your children, our community and school staff in the manner of TRS. Establishing a culture based on these values and principles will lead to stronger, more well-rounded academic students. Please feel free to stop in and visit me over the summer as our wonderful staff and I are prepping for a tremendous school year. I will finish with this. I love students, and I believe in the value of instruction, learning, athletics, fine arts, specials, lunch/recess and all facets of education that transform our children. After serving in just about every type of educational capacity over the last forty years, I would do it all over again… See you soon and enjoy your summer. Sincerely and Professionally, Kurt Walton Interim Principal Frankford Township School
