A few pics of our little enjoying some cool treats. 

From Mrs. Ashline: We have had a busy planting season at Chateaugay Central. Students from many different grade levels have been busy planting seeds for our vegetable gardens.  Many students have also helped to plant our raised bed gardens, clean up the Memorial Garden, and clean up the trails. 

 With a grant from Franklin County Soil and Water, we were able to plant a pumpkin patch this year.  We hope to have enough pumpkins to supply all of our students.  We want our students to understand the importance of growing gardens so that they can see where some of their food comes from.  Our eighth graders had a chance to make refrigerator pickles.  They enjoyed making and eating them.

What a great day for the final BARK event of the year. As you can see, it was a little wet out there. 

From Mrs. Dwyer: Our students also wanted to nominate 2 teachers who embody the BARK principles. Mrs. Simonsen and Mr. Johnson were the recipients. Thank you for always going above and beyond for our students.

Today we had our final BARK assembly for the year. We honored the trait of being kind and all the students who were nominated for that award. 

We also honored our 8th graders as they move on to high school. 

Congratulations to our middle school students!

Mrs. Hamilton's reading groups in first grade enjoyed a fun project!  After reading The Paint Brush Kid written by Clyde Robert Bulla, they enjoyed painting the covers of their journals.  They were all "Paint Brush Kids" today!

Thank you, Mrs. Nichols, for these pictures from a special visitor in the Pre-K3 class this week. A special Thank you to Vanessa and the Titus family for bringing Atlas. Our Pre-K3 friends enjoyed a special surprise. 

From Mrs. Blair-Wilcox: The 4th graders participated in the time honored tradition of Olympic Day. The gym and field were filled with cheering and smiles as the kiddos competed in some fun events. We are so fortunate to have Mr. Reynolds, Mrs. Reynolds, and Mr. Johnston plan and host this most anticipated day each year! 

1st Grade went on a field trip to Thera-Pets in Peru NY. What does a day at Kickin' Up Dust Farm look like?

We had 3 stations, visiting the animals, an obstacle course, and playing at the park. We rotated through these stations, had lunch, and then walked through the woods to Macomb State Park to play on their huge playground and back. But it wasn't an ordinary walk because we walked the donkeys!!!!! The weather was beautiful, the animals adorable, the experience was a blast and the kiddos were amazing! 

More information about the farm can be found at:

Hmm....these faces look familiar. 

The 4th graders traveled back in time to see where Almanzo Wilder lived during his time in the book Farmer Boy. They loved seeing the barns, house, schoolhouse replica, and Trout River. It was a fantastic day and we topped it off with an ice cream treat from Uncle Sankies.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this album full of memories. 

Thank you, Mrs. Jones-King, for these pictures from the Walkathon held on Wednesday, June 5. It was a warm and humid day but the students did an amazing job. 

9th grade ELA students, Lily Boyea and Hailey Parent gave informative speeches on caring for their farm animals. Fantastic job, ladies. 

I have been challenged to capture this photo. Hmmm...

FFA Members take a trip to Wild Center

FFA members recently went to the Wild Center to learn about the effects of Climate Change on animals in the Adirondacks. One of the highlights was the Wild Walk with a giant spider web and bird's nest. Our president, Jamie-Lynn Helm, and advisor, Mrs. Ashline were able to donate clothing they had used on the farm. Their clothes will be exhibited in the center's latest exhibit: Clothesline- Food, Fiber, Air and Soil. Their clothing will represent all of the hard work done by people in our community in the field of agriculture. There's also a video of our sentinel, Zak Helm, fulfilling his dream of flying. Birldly is a state-of-the-art exhibit/flying simulator. 

Livestream recording. 

Pre-K Slide Show shown during the ceremony. 

Senior Trip Photos - this album will be updated often. Google randomly chooses the cover photo for these albums. I think it a good choice. 


Ausable Chasm High Ropes Course, Rafting, and a Hike with the Sophomores today. We all had a blast and couldn't think of a better person to spend the day with!

Mrs. McDonald's 3rd grade class learned about the power of the sun. After discussion about solar energy, we built our very own solar ovens. What to bake in a solar oven? S'mores of course! It was a gooey fun afternoon! 

From Mrs. O'Neill: Mrs. O'Neill's 1st grade joined the 3rd grade classes on a trip to the Rec Park. Thank you Mrs. Farrell for talking to us about water safety. The kids had a lot of fun playing on the playground. A bonus was that a few siblings got to spend time together!

Kindergarten finished their theme week of Dinosaurs with a fossil dig! We had so much fun and it was a tasty experience too! 😁

From Mrs. Thomas: Mrs. Harrigan’s and Mrs. Thomas’ second grade classes had a great time visiting the Nicandri Nature Center today! The students were able to explore a nature trail that led to a beaver dam as well as dissect an owl pellet. The different faces that occurred during this activity were priceless! We are very grateful to the center for hosting us!

From McComb: Our class and Mrs. Parmeter's class had a blast on our trip to the Trombly Farm today! We enjoyed making more memories!  

The first graders had a delightful annual field trip to the Trombley Farm, where they learned about the farm and enjoyed spending time with the animals. We truly appreciate this wonderful opportunity! 

From Mrs. McComb: My class and Mrs. Parmeter’s class enjoyed an amazing trip to the Boces in Malone. We were able to make pizzas and cookies, listen to a story about pizza, and made a pizza craft, and play pizza games outside. What an amazing experience for our kids and best of all we were able to eat our delicious pizza and cookies when we got back to school. We want to thank all the staff and students in the Boces program for hosting such a great event for our Pre-K kids!
