 Third Grade Teacher toured Europe this summer

September 8, 2011  Third grade teacher Samantha Phillips will be developing new curriculum this year on 'East Central European' cultural communities. This is thanks to her amazing experience this summer in Prague, Budapest, Berlin and Krakow for Cornell Institute of European Studies educator tour. The tour was part of the institute's ongoing "Getting to Know the New Europe" community outreach project. The project, thanks to a grant from the European Commission, was designed to improve the understanding of politics, social diversity and culture of such East Central European countries as the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, and to improve K-12 instruction about Europe by promoting new course material aligned with the NY State Common Core Standards and history curriculum requirements. Phillips described her trip "as a truly memorable experience that will enrich her curriculum and enable her students to develop an understanding of countries they may have never even heard of".

Back to school Message for Students and Parents
September 6, 2011  
New York State Education Commissioner John B. King has posted a Back to School message for students and parents.
The message for students is “Work Hard, Get Smart.” Commissioner King asks students to think about challenging themselves with reading and writing this year and to make a persuasive argument on a topic they really believe using evidence to make their case. King urges parents to “dive into their students’ school experience.” He suggests that parents ask their children, “What did you learn today? What does that mean?” He asks both students and parents to “take every advantage of the learning opportunities in the year ahead.”
