Everyone Needs a Little Culture!

Culture Fair is Diverse: We had a great turnout on Saturday for our 7th Annual District Culture Fair. If you have never been, it is a chance for our community members, students, and staff to show off their talents and share delicacies from their cultures.

It is also an opportunity for our whole community to see just how diverse our school community actually is. I want to give a great big thank you to our organizers, volunteers, and to all who attended. Click here to view a short video of the event.

Auditorium Becomes a Concert Hall: Last Thursday night our high school auditorium was transformed into a true concert hall. Our audience was treated by guest conductors/composers Rossano Galante and Dr. Scott Boerma, who helped to take our musicians through some very challenging pieces. I am fortunate to get copies of all our performances, and I have to tell you that the music that was played on Thursday night was professional quality. We are very spoiled to be among such musical talent.

Updates to Our Schools: The Capital Project is still on schedule and on budget.
  • Crews are continuing to install technology upgrades in the buildings. 
  • At the same time some of the new door security measures are up and running as well. 
  • We have sent the final plans for the new additions (cafeterias) for East Hill Elementary and Onondaga Road Elementary Schools. They are past their preliminary approvals so getting some shovels in the ground is going to begin to happen sooner than later. 
We are excited for the needed progress that is to come.

Spring Sports Already? Believe it or not, spring sports start today. Yes, you read that correctly. I am hoping for a slow and consistent thaw that hopefully starts today so we can be playing non-turf sports outdoors by April! Keep you fingers crossed.

Thanks and enjoy the week!
