The 2019-20 school year is quickly approaching. My staff is working hard preparing their classrooms and the school for opening day. Fall athletic teams are just beginning their second week of practice. School begins on September 4th. Grades 8-12 will be dismissed at 10:15 to make room for our new 7th graders. I look forward to meeting all of our students on the first day of school. September 5th will be the first full day of school. We will begin this year on an "A" day. Class meetings for 9th and 10th graders will take place in the classroom this year rather than the auditorium. This change was created so we can speak to the students in a smaller environment regarding our Positive Behavioral Intervention System. We feel it is important to continue to strive toward a positive school culture where all students social emotional needs are met as well as their academic needs. We are exited to continue this initiative in the high school this year and hope that it makes a difference for your child.
I wish everyone a safe and productive year of learning.

Hello.Monday begins our first day of NYS testing. These tests have changed tremendously over the past several years. Time is unlimited and the number of questions have been reduced. Also, it is a two day test. This year we will be taking the ELA exams using the computer based testing format. We will also be attempting this same format for 7th grade math. Students have become very familiar with this format because they have taken the Star exam 3-4 times per year using the computer.Spring sports have begun. It is always nice to see the students back outside after a long winter.Please don't hesitate to call me with any school related questions. (247-6655)
