Superintendent

Scott N. Connell, Superintendent

Dear District Residents:

School will begin for all students on Tuesday, September 6, 2016.† I am looking forward to having the students back in school after what I hope was a fun, relaxing summer filled with many wonderful memories.† At school, summer 2016 was an exciting time. We had thirty students take part in our summer learning program.† They spent three days a week for six weeks getting a jump-start on the 2016-2017 school year.† We have also made a few room and position changes.† When you enter the building to check in, Samantha Kallen will greet you.† She has replaced Mary Shambo, who will now be in the new elementary office, which is located in the elementary section of our building.† Samantha is a 2014 graduate of Copenhagen, and we are excited to have her join our staff.

Free and Reduced Lunch
Again this year, I would like to urge all residents to review our school meal program for free and reduced breakfast and lunch. You will find it in this newsletter, or you can pick it up at school.† We will also have applications available at Open House on September 1.† The application might seem a bit complicated, but we can assist any family who has questions.† If you are in need of assistance with the forms, please do not hesitate to call school.† Additionally, all of our free and reduced lunch applications are kept completely confidential. †We encourage you to sign up because not only do the students benefit from having a nutritious meal, but the school benefits also.† Many of the revenues that we receive from the state are calculated on the number of students eligible for free and reduced lunch.† The more families that apply, the greater amount of state aid the school receives.† Additionally, the higher our percentage of free and reduced students, the better chance we have of qualifying for many grants.† If that isnít enough, all students that qualify also receive fee waivers on all SAT, ACT and many college applications.† So as you can see, this is a win-win situation for everyone.† Again, I encourage you to complete this application if you qualify.†

New Staff Members
Since the June newsletter, we have added a few new members to our family at CCS.† Iíd like to welcome Ashley Gregory.† Ashley will be teaching 9th and 12th grade English.†† She is a graduate of South Jefferson CSD and prior to coming to Copenhagen she taught for five years at Carthage CSD. †Maren Farney is coming back to teach 4th grade and Kaillie Goodnough will be teaching middle school and high school health as well as Elementary Physical Education. †Kristin Wilson will be joining us as a teacher in a BOCES Special Education Classroom.† She is a graduate from Marist College and has previously taught in Ghana, Africa.† The aide for the BOCES Special Education† classroom is Tom Hovendon, who has served our district as a Bus Aide.†† Logan Spaulding and SueAnn Carroll, who were here last year as teacher aids, have joined us as teaching assistants in the elementary for the 2016-2017 school year.† We have also added two bus drivers that are no strangers to Copenhagen.† Gary Carter and Elizabeth Sullivan will join us this fall.† Last, Stanley Rowsam will take on the duties as a custodian along with remaining in his position as a bus driver.†

Please join me in welcoming these fine people and as always, thank you for your continued support of our district.

Sincerely,

Scott N. Connell
Superintendent of Schools
