Superintendent
† † † † † † †
†Dear District Residents:
I would like to share with you some information about our school that will be happening this month.†

School Budget
†††††††††††††††† Since January, the Board of Education has been meeting twice a month to present a budget that is best for the students and also fiscally responsible.† I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with a group of people that is so committed to the future of the students of Copenhagen.†† The 2015-2016 budget was adopted at their April 27 meeting.† As Iím sure most are aware, these past few years have been very difficult attempting to maintain programs and staff with decreasing revenues.† Last month, the Governor presented a state budget with a 6 percent increase to education.† Unfortunately, Copenhagen only saw a 3.16 percent increase.† Your budget document will be mailed to you soon.† We will be presenting the budget to the public on May 5 at the annual budget meeting.† The vote will be May 19.†† Please remember to come out and vote.
Teacher and Staff Appreciation
May 4 - May 8 is Teacher Appreciation Week.†† Each year we take a week to show our appreciation for the outstanding teachers we have a CCS.† Because of the aggressive reform agenda and the rigor of the Common Core, teachers are being asked to do more than they ever have in the past.† At Copenhagen Central School, we are blessed to have a dedicated staff that is willing to face these challenges and continue to provide a quality education to each and every student that walks through our doors.†† It is because of their dedication and commitment that we have the outstanding school we do.†† Please take time during this week to say thank you to your childís teacher.
Likewise, we are so very fortunate to have an equally committed and dedicated group of people who provide services to our students as well.† The transportation department, the custodians, the office professionals, the food service department, and the teaching assistants and aides all play an integral role in the education of each child at Copenhagen.†† It is because of these people and our teaching staff that we have a school that is second to none.†
Parent/Grandparent Luncheons
Our luncheons have begun for the 2014-2015 school year.† I encourage everyone to come out and enjoy this special time with his or her children.† Since we now have a locked campus, we are asking that on this day only, everyone enter the building through the doors in the back parking lot by the cafeteria.† A member of our administrative staff will greet you there.†
I hope to see everyone at the annual meeting and vote.† Your support of our school and our students is greatly appreciated.
Snow Day Adjustments
† It is difficult to believe that we had more snow in our little village than anywhere else in the Country.† Whatís even harder to believe is that with all this snow, we have only used four snow days.† If the District does not use any days between now and mid May, school will not be in session Friday, May 22, Monday, May 25 (Memorial Day) and Tuesday May 26.

Sincerely,
Scott Connell
Superintendent of Schools
