Greetings from Cosgrove!   The weather is cold outside and our students are sweating as they work on finishing assignments before the end of the second quarter.  Report cards will be in the mail by the first week in February. This week, we hosted 10 teachers and administrators from Canandaigua.  They were visiting classrooms and picking up ideas that they can bring back to their middle school.  The feedback about our kids, facilities and faculty didn’t surprise me one bit.  They just loved Cosgrove!

Our College and Career Committee continues to build our impressive programs up for all grades.  We will be having a Career Day in March for 6th grade students with a wide range of speakers.  Our 7th grade students have picked 3 areas of interest out of the 19 career and technical education programs offered at WeMoCo which is located on the BOCES 2 Campus.  Students will be able to learn about all of the different options that will be available to them when they go to high school.  In addition, Mr. Sorbera and the committee are finalizing plans for our 8th grade students to take a tour of the University of Rochester in the spring.  Many of our students didn’t know that you have to apply to college and be accepted.  Students thought that if they paid, they could go.  These experiences will really help our students before going to the high school. 

Our last major concert for the season was a hit.  Mrs. Kellaway and Mrs. Bush did an amazing job with the 6th grade band and chorus. With almost a 100 musicians, I was thoroughly impressed with how much that band has grown.  Our rehearsals for the Wizard of Oz are still going and the sets are now being built.  I can’t wait for the upcoming play.  If you want to buy tickets for the Wizard of Oz, online sales start Monday, January 22nd.  The Friday, March 16 or either performance on Saturday, March 17th, please go to the link to buy tickets Monday! https://www.showtix4u.com/boxoffice.php?submit=Search+for+Events&begin=1542968&current_client=020000691231730

As we look ahead to the next few weeks, I wanted to offer some reminders.  Student yearbooks are finishing the online sale and I encourage everyone to place their order now at www.Jostens.com   There will be very few books to offer in June.  

We will be having our 10th Annual Groundhog Olympics week from February 12th-16th.  The students will end their week with our wacky games and Olympics in the gym for the coveted Cosgrove Olympic Flame award.  Students and staff have chosen The Bill Cook Foundation for the charity for this year.   This incredible charity focuses on supporting and educating kids from all over the world.  One administrator and counselor with the most funds in their bucket, will be getting a pie in the face during the Olympics.  The theme days that were selected by students and they are as follows:  Spirit Day events include: Mon – Super Hero  Tues – Workout Day Wed – Decade Day   Thurs – Favorite Character day  Fri – 6th – White  7th – Gold  8th – Blue

Our 8th graders will be meeting with the Choices students today during Flex.  These high school students love coming over and sharing their experiences and how to be successful at the high school.  This transition program is being replicated across the county and has been supported by Monroe County.  As the father of an 8th grader and a senior, students have many fears about moving on to the high school and our students will have familiar faces when they walk into the high school because of this program. 

With all of these great programs happening in Spencerport, I am truly lucky to be the principal of Cosgrove, a nationally recognized, School to Watch.  If I can be of assistance to you or your child, please contact me at 349-5302 or ndale@spencerportschools.org 

Sincerely,

Ned Dale
