Press Release Village of Chateaugay, NY – May 20, 2022
The Village of Chateaugay NY is pleased to announce that its 6th annual "Mayor For A Day" winners, chosen from their wonderful essays, were two local 8th grade Chateaugay Central School students, Luke Carlisto & Anna Dalton.
Students were asked the question “What would you do as mayor to make our village the best place to live?” Luke and Anna's essays were the two top choices by the Village Board. Luke’s essay focused on the creation of community nature trails, while Anna’s essay focused on the building of Little Free Libraries for the two parks in the village. Their suggestions are being considered by the Village Board with the intent to be implemented in future planning.
Luke and Anna were invited by Chateaugay Village Mayor Mathew Clarke to visit his office and join him as “Mayor for the Day” on Friday May 20th. The students were able to see firsthand what the job entails. Some of the job duties and topics discussed were; the Village budget, budgeting expectations for a fiscal year, monthly bills, daily operations as well as our DPW Water and Wastewater facilities.
The Chateaugay Village Board strongly encourages involvement of the entire community and especially focuses on our youth. Our vision is a village where all youth are active participants in shaping a vibrant community. The board firmly believes that young people who experience involvement at an early age will grow up with an enduring sense of responsibility. We believe that the youth should be challenged to do more and need to be included in all aspects of community life. The entire board would like to give a special thanks to the administration, teachers and staff at Chateaugay Central School who allow us to do this project every year in conjunction with their 8th grade Social Studies and English classes. With this in mind The Village Board plans to continue this as an annual event.
FFA Members attend the 97th NYS Annual Convention
Sixteen members of the Chateaugay Chapter of FFA attended the annual convention held in Syracuse, NY May 12-14. Members from across the state participated in Career Development and Leadership events. They also attended tours and leadership workshops. Students participated in service projects that included building portable food pantry boxes. New state officers were installed and we heard addresses from retiring officers. The keynote speaker was EJ Carrion, best-selling author, and entrepreneur with his own student success agency. EJ has made Forbes 30 under 30 list and has been invited to both the White House and Dept of Education. In their downtime, students were able to attend a loCash concert and Wonderworks at Destiny. Thank you to our Superintendent, Loretta Fowler, and the Board of Education for making this trip possible.
After discussing solar energy, Mrs. McDonald's 3rd graders built solar ovens and used the power of the sun to make s'mores. It was super gooey and delicious!
Senior Night - Baseball and Softball
Thank you to these senior athletes for so many wonderful memories. We wish you the best.
Sixth graders performed some Readers' Theater in preparation for our upcoming Poetry Slam. Students had fun finding places to insert emotion and hand gestures to add meaning to their scripts. Look for our Poetry Slam on May 20th starting at 1:00!
From Ms. Rieger:
A group of CCS students competed at Paul Smith's in the Regional NYS Envirothon Competition. The activities tested students' knowledge and understanding of natural resource issues within NYS.
