Hello to all Middle School families. This is Mr. Houseknecht with a message from Mr. Cartwright: As many of you are probably aware the 7th and 8th grade students have been working diligently on their science fair projects for the past several months. The time has come for us to celebrate those accomplishments. We will be hosting the Science Fair here at school next Thursday, April 28th. All families are welcome. Most of the students will be presenting their science fair projects to the public at that time. Attendance is not mandatory for the students, however it is encouraged. Their will be a period of time between 6:00 - 7:00 pm in which families will be given the opportunity to browse the amazing accomplishments of our students, and there will be a period of time from at 7:00 until 7:30 where we will recognize the accomplishments of some of our most prominent projects in a brief awards ceremony. The event will take place in the atrium, gym lobby and auditorium. You can enter through the main entrance or the gym lobby. We hope to see you at the event, and thanks for the support!
A hidden gem!

🎶 It's Marching Band Season 🎶 In the coming weeks, the Directors of the Marching Band and Color Guard will be signing students up for our first feels of normalcy since 2019! Students currently in Band grades 7-12 are invited to join the Marching Band. Any student grades 6-12 are invited to join the Color Guard. They have a couple different parades they've already been invited to AND opportunities for hours of community service (for those looking for some). Play a sport or are involved in other extra curricular activities? You can still join! Please speak with Mr. David Turken and/or Mrs. Ellen Eastman-Smith for more details.

Our partners at the Council for Alcoholism and Addictions of the Finger Lakes is launching a new program in Seneca County, called the Triple P! The Triple P (Positive Parenting Program) is a FREE program offered through the Council on Alcoholism & Addictions of the Finger Lakes to help improve the lives of families in Seneca County. Topics are divided into four sessions, and participants can choose to attend one, two, three or all four sessions. Each session is two hours long and caregivers are encouraged to discuss problems they are experiencing so that they can find positive solutions for themselves, their children and their families. Sessions are for adults only and are focused around two age groups: children ages 0-12 and teens. No registration form is required: Just a simple phone call to 315-789-0310 to register for the next session (offered day and evenings to accommodate the caregiver’s schedule, individual or group discussions).
It was good to be back in-person. Kids were happy to be here. The building was busy even into the afternoon with a vaccine clinic, Ski Club, the last sports study hall for modified boys and girls basketball, and gaming in extended day. It's important to remember just how much kids get by being in school- in addition to the academics. Glad to be back and see our kids.
Good morning Middle School parents and guardians, I’d like to introduce you to a new tutoring service called “Paper” that we are subscribing to. Please see the document linked below for more information. I will be getting this information to all 6-12 students today. Thank you, and have a good day.

A message from our music teachers, Mr. Turken and Miss Weissman: After a long 725+ days since the 2019 Winter concerts, we were so happy to bring live performances with an audience back into our Auditorium! You could tell that our students could feel the energy in the room in getting to perform in front of family and friends. Without the support of our school and community, this event would not have been possible. For those who were unable to attend, below are links to the videos from both performances featuring the 6th Grade Band, 6th Grade Chorus, Middle School Swing Chorus, 7th/8th Grade Chorus, 7th/8th Grade Band, High School Chorus, High School Band, Vocal Jazz, and High School Jazz Band. We hope that you enjoy and have a happy and healthy holiday season!
