            The All-County Roster is quite impressive with Jordan Johnston, Kelly Kalleberg, Elizabeth Losee, Erin McPherson, Tea Mattice, Naomi Wehmeir & Ryleigh Goodchild making up the Elementary Band. Jillian Lyke, Madison Tobon & Bryanna Meehan participating in Junior High Chorus. Jaden DeMaio, Catherine Jankowski, Angelina Hartley, Brandon Wright, Daisy Accordino, Zoe Mattice & Stephanie Moore in the Senior High Band & Skyler Fullington singing in the Jazz Chorus. Congratulations to our talented music students!

            As the number of students in our school fluctuates and the needs and wants change, so must our program. The sixth grade will be become part of our elementary school beginning in the fall of 2018. The fifth and sixth grade will take on a team-teaching model as was done here in the past. Not only will this foster an improved transition for our upper elementary students but will allow for additional college courses, honors courses, alternative education, modified academic programs and electives to be offered to our middle and high school students.

            On April 11th and 12th our 3-8 ELA testing will begin with the make-up day on April 13th. The tests have been made shorter this year and only take place for two days instead of three. Students will not be assigned homework during these testing times. If you have questions, please contact me.

            The Fourth grade took a field trip to the New York State Museum in Albany on February 27th to participate in the People of the Long House program.  They toured the museum and rode on the carousel.  Next, they are going to the Farmer's Museum to take part in colonial life workshops. These students are also waking up beans in the classroom!  They explored the conditions necessary to germinate and grow kidney beans; they hope to keep some of the plants alive for planting in the RCS garden.

Girls on the Run (GOTR) begins March 20th for girls in grades 3-5; they will be running through April and May on Tuesdays and Thursdays until our culminating 5K in Cooperstown on June 3rd.

Sincerely,

Jill Ten Eyck, Principal
