Another year of beautiful collaboration! Mr. Martin's 3rd grade class joined Kindergarten in making our Christmas Countdown craft! So much fun was had by all!
Kindergarteners continued the tradition of making Christmas countdown chains with our third grade friends. We had lots of fun and are grateful for the help from Mrs. McDonald’s class. 😊🎄
They made it! Thank you for the picture, Mrs. Rieger. We hope everyone is having a wonderful time.
Mrs. Dwyer stopped by the art room and was impressed with this work from Lily Boyea.
Parents: We encourage you to watch this video. Brian Montgomery spoke to our students in grades 5-12 today about some of the dangers that our kids can face on the internet. Students in grades 7-12 viewed the video. Mr. Montgomery spoke directly to our 5th and 6th graders, without the video. Mr. Montgomery's son, Walker was a victim of sextortion. Unfortunately, Walker died by suicide because of this. We want to make all of our students and all of our parents aware of this very real danger. Please talk to your children and let them know that you are here to help no matter what situation they may find themselves in.
As Mr. Montgomery said, nothing good happens between 10 pm and 6 am. Please consider a rule about no internet access at night. This is a simple step that we can take to help keep our children safe.

Dear Parents/Guardians - Class of 2024,
We would like to invite you to attend a meeting on December 12, 2023, at 6 pm regarding the annual senior trip. This meeting should only last approximately 30 minutes.
This meeting provides an excellent opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the trip itinerary, costs, rules, etc. At the meeting, we will give you information about the tentative itinerary, the trip cost, and student expectations/behaviors and rules. The meeting will be:
Tuesday, December 12, 2023, at 6 pm in Room 125 (Ms. Stewart’s Rm). Attendance at this meeting satisfies our requirement of a meeting between the Principal and the parents of any student participating in the trip. If you cannot attend this meeting, please call the office to set up a separate meeting at another time. No student will be able to attend the trip without a meeting and signature from parents. We hope to see you there.
Sincerely, Kate Dwyer HS principal
Memories from the last few weeks courtesy of Miss Swinton. Some Thanksgiving lessons and of course decorating the tree!
From Mrs. Sweatt: After reading the book, Balloons Over Broadway, students were challenged to design their own freestanding balloon for the Macy's parade. They had some setbacks but didn't let that stop them. They showed great perseverance and teamwork and created some amazing balloons.
Something different. Mrs. Calnon and Mrs. Jones-King interviewed some of out little Bulldogs and asked them what they liked about the first 10 weeks of school.
Pictures from the Bulldog Pride Awards held on November 17, 2023. Congratulations to all of these students. Mrs. Calnon is very proud of her boys and girls.
Congratulations to these Area All-State musicians from CCS for their weekend concert in Saranac Lake. Mrs. Trombley and Mrs. Hodges are very proud of them all.
From Mrs. Blair-Wilcox: The kiddos in Mrs. Blair-Wilcox's 4th grade and Mrs. McComb's PreK 4 classrooms got together to complete a STEM challenge. They were tasked with creating a cage for the turkey so that it would be safe and not fly away before Thanksgiving dinner. They did a great job working together to make some very creative cages. After the activity, we listened to a Thanksgiving story made and enjoyed a trail mix. We hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving and enjoys this special time with their families!
Fun with board games during the October BARK event. Thank you for the pictures, Mrs. Sampica-Manor.
From Mrs. Dwyer: Today our HS LEAD team helped at morning drop off! We are thankful for their leadership this morning and every day in our building!
From Mrs. McDonald:
Mrs. McDonald's 3rd-grade class celebrated National Butter Day by making our own butter. It took a lot of muscle and a little patience, but it was worth it. We enjoyed the fruits of our labor on saltine crackers! YUM!
From Mrs. Patnode: It was a turkey glasses kind of day.
