Dear Oswegatchie School Community,
We have had a very smooth opening to school. It has been a great week. It was so wonderful to see all of the children and how excited they were to return to school. We ended the week with a whole school assembly where we sang our school song, reviewed behavioral expectations of being Responsible, Respectful, Safe, and Kind.
As a reminder, we
have had some schedule changes for the 2015-2016 school year that include the
elimination of the morning recess. Students now come directly off their buses
and go to either the breakfast program or their homeroom. The schedule for Art,
Music, Physical Education and Computer has increased to forty-five minutes per
session and we will are now working on a four day rotation (A, B, C, D) rather
than a six day rotation. The additional time will be gained by eliminating the
AM recess. Forty-five minute specials every four days will allow for an
increase in instruction both on a daily basis and over the course of the school
year. You may have noticed D1, D2, and D3 days indicated on our letter day schedule. This refers to our band and orchestra aschedule to make the programs equitable between schools. Our Orchestra will be on C and D1 days and band will be on B and D3 days.
Have a Great weekend!
