In this season of thanksgiving, it is my great joy and privilege to thank you for your expressed and indispensable support, and your manifold contributions to the wellbeing of our school community.

It takes all of us to create a safe, nurturing, and forward-thinking environment in which to grow and prepare our students to thrive in a fast-changing world. We are mindful of the professionalism and dedication of our administrators, faculty and staff; of our students’ drive to learn and achieve; of our students' families for their engagement; and of our community members for their support and investment in our educational mission.

On behalf of our Board of Education, district administrators, and my own family, please accept our sincere thanks, and our warm Thanksgiving wishes for a happy and safe celebration with your loved ones.

As part of our school’s celebration of autumn, our first graders were treated to a delicious apple-cider making demonstration, on Friday, Oct. 21.

Each child brought in his/her own apple, placed it into the press and watched turn into delicious cider. As they enjoyed their healthy treat, they learned many facts about apples and about the varieties that grow in beautiful New York.

SECOND GRADERS MEET BIRDS OF PREY

Posted October 23 at 11:37am

Things got a bit wild in the school auditorium when Mr. Bill Robinson arrived with three unlikely visitors: a hawk, a turkey vulture, and an owl.

This assembly provided our second graders a close look at birds of prey and reinforced a classroom science unit. In addition to fascinating facts about his birds, Mr. Robinson helped students understand the difference between predators and scavengers, and their roles in their living environment.

A special thank you to our PTO for sponsoring this unique learning opportunity.
