Students are busy preparing for mid-terms and Regents exams this month.  The end of the marking period is January 27th.  Due to Regents exams,  school will not be in session for high school students  between January 24th and 27th.  BOCES students will still attend their programs.  I have attached a link for a 15 minute video titled, "What is wrong with Millenials".  It is an informative video that may make a difference in how we all view the way this group functions.  I would love to hear your thoughts after viewing the video, 
Stay warm during this cold time of year.

Fall has arrived and the high school students are busy with all the many school activities available to them.  Last week we had almost 400 students attend the Mum Bowl Dance.  It is our most popular event of the year.  The students all seemed to enjoy themselves and took plenty of pictures. 

The 5 week reports were distributed to students in homeroom last week.  If your child accidentally forgot to share this with you, or somehow lost it, feel free to call the Guidance Office for a copy.  It is also posted on the parent portal. 
This week the science department will be hosting the STAR lab.  Students will all have a chance to learn about astronomy through this portable lab.  The Juniors made their annual trip to Salem, Mass. on Friday.  All reports indicate that the trip went well and they were able to see many of the locations where the witch trials took place.  This trip is intended to enhance their understanding of "The Crucible" novel which they have worked on this fall.  Thank you to all teachers involved with organizing and chaperoning both these learning experiences. 
Please feel free to call me with any questions.

  • Stack of books Hello everyone. As I sit here looking out the window at the late winter blizzard, I can't help but think how much we need spring. The 5 week reports should be out by the end of the week. Next week we have motivational speaker Chris Herron visiting our school on March 22nd to discuss the perils of drug use. He will also speak at Kingston high school in the evening. Also, please don't forget parent/teacher conference night on the 23rd. Please call the office to set up an appointment to meet your child's teacher. Many of our recent graduates are finding a great deal of success in their college careers. The Saugerties Merit Page link I have attached showcases their success. Feel free to visit this page to see how our Saugerties students are doing after leaving our school.
