SUPERINTENDENT DR. SUSAN GUINEY
The fall has arrived and with it the weather is finally starting to match the season. As we begin the month of November and look forward to the many celebrations that take place this time of year, there is much to be excited about around the Mount Pleasant Central School District.
Last week, the month began with the opportunity for us to devote a day of learning for the adult learners in our school community. The Fall Teacher’s Institute provides a time for administration and teachers to come together to focus on curriculum development and gain a deeper understanding of best practices in education. It is a time to make a significant contribution towards reaching the District's mission: to educate each child today for endless possibilities tomorrow.
Last week also we also hosted the BioBus on the Westlake campus as STEAM education continues to build in our schools. The BioBus is a high-tech, mobile science lab that travels around the tri-state area delivering innovative and hands-on science lessons to students. It is a great opportunity to spark the interest of a career in STEAM for many young learners. The BioBus visit was funded through a grant from Regeneron. We are appreciative of their generosity to our students and school district.
In honor of Veteran’s Day, Columbus Elementary School hosted the 3rd annual Take a Vet to School Day. It is a wonderful opportunity to teach the students about the many sacrifices that those in previous generations have made to ensure our freedom as Americans. More than 60 veterans were honored in an all-school assembly and then took the time to visit classrooms and tell their stories. Thank you to Columbus teacher Christine Galbo for her time and efforts in coordinating this special day.
As always, The Westlake Players will be performing a fantastic fall drama. This year’s show is A Christmas Carol, the story of a cold-hearted miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, who is given a chance at redemption; always a great message for this time of year. Performances will be Friday November 17th and Saturday November 18th at 8pm and a Sunday matinee, November 19th, at 1pm.
Finally, congratulations to many of our Varsity athletes who competed in post-season championship play. The Varsity Volleyball team captured the Section 1 Class B Volleyball Championship title! Varsity Football finished their season as league co-champions and the Girls Varsity Track team are league champions as well. Finally best of luck to Varsity swimmer Maeve McArdle who will be swimming in the NYS championships in Ithaca next week.
Please be sure to visit the district website, www.mtplcsd.org, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for up to the minute happenings in our schools. There are great pictures of all of the wonderful events that are occurring.
Warm wishes for a wonderful holiday season ahead.
