Race to the Finish

I hope that all of you had a quality Memorial Weekend. I was pleased to see that so many people reflected on the true meaning of Memorial Day as well, including many of our students and your people. Never forget.

West Genesee was represented very well as usual at the Memorial Day parade in the Village of Camillus. Even though I was out of town, I was able to follow all of the action on Twitter which I found ironic as people are usually following ME on Twitter to stay updated.

We continue to have a banner sports season and spring sports for many are still moving forward. There are so many results to report that I am going to refer you to this link so I do not make a mistake and accidentally leave something out.  I am very proud of our student athletes, their coaches, and Athletic Director Mike. Burns for proceeding through this season with commitment, class, character, and a competitive fire. Best of luck to those athletes heading on to state competitions this week.

Also, just a friendly programming reminder that this Sunday (June 3) is the first run/walk sponsored by the group Save Modified Sports at West Genesee. The event promises to be a lot of fun for all with a faculty softball game at the end with actor Alec Baldwin as the umpire, and a band that will be playing some of your favorite classic rock tunes. If I survive the race, I plan on sitting in on the guitar for a few tunes as well. I hope to see you there and for additional information head to their website at .

If all goes well, we may be paid a visit by Dr. John King, the Commissioner of Education for New York State. He had requested to view a high functioning Career and Technical Education program and West Genesee made the very short list. We completely understand his busy schedule and hope that he can make it, but if his plans change at least we were one of the first schools on his mind.

Have a great rest of this short week!
