There will be a special meeting of the Arkport Board of Education on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2023. This meeting will be held at 5:00 p.m. in the board conference room.
Let the good times roll! First grade students in Mrs. Fox’s class celebrated the 50th day of school with some ‘50s fun – dancing, learning, bubble gum blowing, counting, writing and making root beer floats at the soda shop!
Congratulations to Drew Glover (trumpet), NyVeah Stewart (alto) and Salim Ford (tenor) on their selection to and participation in this past weekend's NYSSMA Zone 15 Senior High (10-12th grade) Area All-State Music Festival. This past Spring, students spent many hours preparing solos to be adjudicated by NYSSMA certified adjudicators. Based on their scores, students were selected to participate in AAS. A concert was performed on Saturday at Elmira High School with band, choir, orchestra, and modern band students representing over 30 school districts across the Southern Tier and Western New York. Bravo on an exceptional Senior High Area All-State Concert!
Mrs. Fox’s first grade class partnered with Mrs. Shafer’s first grade class from Oswego Central School to learn writing and listening skills. Each class created a monster then sent their partner class the instructions to recreate the monster. Once the recreations were complete, the two classes connected via videoconference to compare the originals and the recreations. The students shared similarities and differences as well as how the instructions were written and interpreted. Sounds like a fun way to learn about communicating!
Second grade students learned about washing their hands when handling food and how to husk corn, purchased locally from Acomb Farms. The students offered some ideas for new menu items and, of course, enjoyed the corn for lunch the next day!
Special Board of Education Meeting. Friday, November 10, 2023 at 8:00 a.m. The meeting will be held in the Board of Education conference room.
This past week schools nationwide honored their School Psychologists and the important work they do to help students thrive. Thank you, Katelynn Harrison for all you do for Arkport students!
