Monday, Sept. 26th: The Elementary Bus Run is 5-10 minutes behind schedule. A fire alarm was triggered at the Middle School this morning during the arrival process (a spray can combusted in the PLW room). This issue has since been resolved and our students are back in the building. Thank you for your cooperation.
Our Next BOE Meeting is Scheduled for 6:30PM on October 19th in the Elementary School Gym.
The Ashokan Center’s trails and outdoor campus allowed our 5th and 6th graders the opportunity to hike to the depths of a 350 million year old Cathedral Gorge and the Turnwood-Ashokan Covered Bridge (1885). Our students also learned in Ashokan's 18th and 19th Century buildings and working craft shops: Winchell’s Inn (c. 1780), the 1817 schoolhouse, the Ashokan Barn and Barnyard, Blacksmith Shop, Print Shop, Pewter Shop, and Tin & Broom shops.
This morning, together, we remembered the tragic events that took place on 9/11, honored our first responders and celebrated what it means to be an American. Thank you to Principal Boller and Principal Lawrence for organizing this important morning. Thank you to Mrs. Kroll and Mr. Compton for arranging our musical pieces. We all appreciated listening to the inspiring sediments from our Mayor Jesse Dwyer. Thank you to our police officers, scouts, EMTs, town officials and community members who participated in our ceremony today.
