The village of Cooperstown was buzzing with volunteers early this morning as CCS Class of 2020 student banners were proudly hung from lamp posts all along Main Street and Pioneer Street. The previous CVS storefront windows are adorned with Class of 2020 student images and a large banner now hangs high above Main Street - the first banner ever to be hung from the newly installed poles. Wendy Kiuber and Colleen Donnelly are spearheading the parent volunteer Project Committee that coordinated these efforts. Project Committee grew out of the annual Project Prom committee that typically serves to coordinate an after-prom event for our CCS students. With changes necessary due to COVID-19 this year, the committee has been repurposed to complement what the school is planning for the 2020 CCS Commencement. CCS thanks our dedicated parent and community volunteers who continue to support our CCS Class of 2020!

A REMINDER TO OUR CCS DISTRICT FAMILIES REGARDING PACKET DROP-OFF/PICK-UP on April 2, 2020 New “paper and pencil” supplemental learning packets will be available to pick up on Thursday, April 2 at the CCS Elementary School bus circle for K-6 students, and the Junior-Senior High School bus circle for 7-12 students between 12:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. As each family picks up the new supplemental learning packets, please return the first learning packets that were given to you for your child on March 13 (JSHS) or March 16 (ES). This has caused some concern for faculty and families, especially students, who had thought that the first packets wouldn't be due until April 14th. Let's clarify the expectations: · If students have the first learning packets completed, they may be turned in on April 2 when the new learning packets are picked up. · However, don't worry - the first learning packets can be turned in on or around April 14 in a way that your principal or the district will communicate at a later time. Please understand that we want to continue learning throughout this period of closure, but in no way want people to feel stress beyond what COVID-19 has already brought. The first learning packet will not receive numerical grades. It will receive teacher feedback and be designated as either "complete" or "incomplete." The grading protocol for the second learning packet will be determined and communicated by the District. We hope this communication helps to alleviate concerns for the time being. Guidance and rules change each day as we go. We will try and communicate necessary information with you as we also wish you well. Be safe and stay well.

Thursday, January 9, 2020 (Cooperstown, NY) - CCS 7th and 8th Grade Students participated in National History Day (NHD) yesterday at CCS. NHD is a research project competition which challenges students to research, create, edit and revise, produce a final project, and present to a group of judges. The long-term inquiry project, done individually, with a group, or as part of a class, teaches students research and presentation skills. The tenacity needed to complete the project over a period of time and continually revise and improve the product benefits them as students and helps develop the life-long skills needed to be successful in any profession. John Brotherton, CCS 8th grade social studies teacher, Zachary Williams, CCS 7th grade social studies teacher, and Michelle Hitchcock, CCS librarian, guide students with their projects based on the NHD annual theme. Local winners are invited to participate at a regional NHD competition and winners at the regional level will move on to NY State competition.

CCS 4th-Grade students are now accomplished film creators.

To make the tales come to life, students turned their stories into scripts, made paper characters, props and backgrounds. With the help of Caitlin Cook-Wightman, Cooperstown Elementary School art teacher and Emily Gibson, Cooperstown Elementary School library media specialist, students produced the final stop motion animation shorts using an iPad app. The final projects are fantastic examples of student collaboration, creativity and technology integration in art, literature and social studies.

Cooperstown Elementary School students welcomed Daniel Jude Miller last week, children’s author and illustrator of "Monsters in Manhattan" books, "Everybody Wake Up" and the much anticipated "Halloween Boy and the Christmas Kid". Miller is working with several CCS 5th and 6th grade students to support work on his first novel. Students will spend the next month reading the first half of Miller’s book presented and provide feedback before Miller writes the rest of the story. The author was initially inspired to write the novel after having lunch with these students during an author visit and workshop at CCS last spring. At the time, the group brainstormed ideas to help Miller begin writing the first half of the book. Stay tuned as CCS students continue their workshop experience with children’s author Daniel Jude Miller. For more information, please contact Emily Gibson, CCS Elementary Library Media Specialist. http://djudemiller.com/childrens-books

June 7, 2019 (Cooperstown, NY) - Fourth Grade students and faculty at Cooperstown Elementary School have been busy the past several weeks as they visited regional historic sites and studied NY State history through hands-on experience with museum and county professionals. Hanford Mills Museum: CCS 4th Grade students traveled to Hanford Mills Museum in East Meredith, NY to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of the Industrial Revolution on the communities of Central New York. CCS Students explored several buildings at the museum including the 1909 home of the Hanford Family and a wood mill powered by water. The overwhelming favorite experience was reported to be the turning of the large water wheel and the resulting power that was spread to various belts and pulleys throughout the mill. The Farmers' Museum: 19th Century daily life activities were the focus of CCS 4th Grade students during their visit to The Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown, NY. Students explored the various buildings and agriculture in the village to gain a better understanding of rural and village life through demonstrations and interpretive exhibits. Each student participated in a workshop in which they created an item from the time period of the village. A sampling of these Items include hooks forged in the blacksmith shop, pouches from a sewing class, and lip balm from the pharmacy. Otsego County Courthouse & Buildings: The Otsego County Courthouse and County Buildings visit was an opportunity for CCS 4th Grade students to learn about the work of their local government. A stop in the courtroom included a mock trial in which students were given the roles of the various individuals involved in a regular court case. Students spent some time in the 911 call center and learned about the steps taken to help community members who need emergency assistance. The students were also given the opportunity to practice putting out a fake flame, and talk about the proper steps to take should they find themselves in an emergency situation. Finally, the children acted as county representatives while on a stop in the County Board room, and learned about the steps taken to both discuss and vote on legislation. With great appreciation for all that our regional historic sites offer, the CCS 4th Grade Faculty of Nina Burke, Susan Clark, and Ann Reis thank all of those involved in our recent immersion trips.

2019 CCS Our Town Exhibit - 11th Grade English Honors Project Thursday, May 2, 5:30-7pm Opening Reception Every person has a story and those stories are the fabric of our communities. After studying Thornton Wilder’s play Our Town, students in Mrs. Burk-Sciallo’s 11th Grade Honors English class each interviewed a citizen of our town and created a written piece and a visual art piece that depicts their story. The 2019 “Our Town" exhibit comes together in a celebration of life at the Fenimore Art Museum. Take a gallery walk on May 2nd from 5:30-7:00pm and learn more about the stories that make up our town. The 2019 “Our Town” exhibit will remain on display at the Fenimore Art Museum during the month of May.

In celebration of Occupational Therapy recognition month, Mrs. Johnson-Spencer is educating staff about the importance of occupational therapy in a child’s learning experience. Here, she has created a sensory path for students. Having a sensory path on the playground promotes focus, academic and physical coordination, while encouraging socialization and problem-solving skills! If you have pavement and chalk, you can make your own sensory walk! Change it up every week to keep kids engaged and learning!
