Welcome Back to School

The start of the school year is always a very exciting time.  This year we are especially excited, as our district continues to make tremendous progress.  Starting this year the Board of Education will communicating on a regular basis, utilizing the District’s webpage.  In the coming weeks, there will be an email address that will be monitored by Board of Education members that will allow direct access to us to answer questions at the Board of Education level.  We of course encourage you to communicate day to day questions to the administrators and teachers, but if a question comes up to the direction or you are just not sure who to ask, then utilize the new email address.  This is also a good time to highlight some great accomplishments from this past year.

Student Achievement

In late August the New York State Department of Education (NYSED) released 3-8 grade test scores in ELA and Math.  We once again were very pleased with our district’s progress.  We were at over above the state average in every grade level and subject.  Equally important our student growth as a district was recognized to be in the top 10 percent of New York State.  The hard work our students put in definitely led to the great results.  In addition, the preparation, dedication, and professional practice of our teaching staff has continued to produce some of the best results in our region. 


If you have driven by the schools this summer it is obvious that there has been a lot of construction happening.  We are very pleased that projects are wrapping up in time for school to start and they are well within the promised budget.  The fields are being utilized for practices and will continue to be in construction this Fall, but the construction will not impact the Fall sports programs at all.  The boiler project is wrapping up and the systems will be energized over the next couple of weeks.  Classroom cleaning and preparation is underway and things are coming together just in time for the start of classes on September 3rd.

Summer Programs

We are very pleased that so many of you (651 students) took advantage of the 4th Annual Summer Camps and feedback was again this year very positive and we are glad children took advantage of the opportunity.
