A Message from Superintendent, Stephen Penhollow
I would like to thank our residents for approving the school budget. A passed budget allows us to plan for the next school year with confidence. The Board of Education has been able to continue to provide the highest quality of education during a time in which aid has been significantly reduced. I would also like to thank our Board of Education for providing goals, challenges and direction for the education of our students during very difficult economic times. Congratulations to Todd Beckerink for being re-elected to our Board of Education.
The month of June signals the end of another school year for students and staff. Over the last few weeks, our District has held many award ceremonies recognizing and celebrating the achievements of our students. The most significant event in June is, of course, our High School Graduation. At 7 p.m., on June 21, parents, faculty, administrators and members of the Board of Education, will gather at the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts to congratulate our students as they cross the stage to accept their diplomas. As seniors attend their final activities as members of the Falconer community, I wish them much success.
The Falconer Central School District can take pride in the accomplishments of the Class of 2018. They have excelled in the classroom, stage, field, court, mat, and community. From the first day they entered school, the Class of 2018 have met the challenges set in front of them. We are proud of all they have done at FCS and look forward to all they will accomplish. They can be assured that their diplomas represent a significant and meaningful education delivered by an outstanding faculty. Our students are well prepared and ready to enter this next phase of their lives.
I would also like to note that the traffic light that has been in the planning phase for the last year is now in the construction phase at the intersection of Main St. and East Avenue. The light will provide our students an extra level of protection as they cross over Main Street and East Avenue. The NYSDOT is hoping for completion by the middle of August. In addition, Roof replacement at the Middle High School is scheduled to begin in early July and will last throughout the summer and into the fall. Phase I and Phase II of our building projects are moving through the review process at the New York State Education Department.
Honoring the 2018 Golden Falcon Retirees
Falconer Central School would like to wish our 2018 retirees the best, as they have dedicated many years of service to our students and community.
