Future music educators take note... What happens when the call comes through that a tuba is needed for an upcoming performance? You finish your tennis match (She won by the way), don your concert attire, and join with a group of outstanding musicians. Thank you to the York Central School District Concert Band and Genesee Valley Wind Ensemble for allowing Natalie to participate in your concert. Best musicians, best future music educators, best team! Daryl McLaughlin Superintendent of Schools

The GLOW YMCA needs your support! The non-profit organization is applying for the LEAPS Grant in order to provide children, ages preschool to 12 years old, with the chance to enroll and engage in the YMCA’s after-school programs. These programs are essential in providing families with safe, reliable and affordable after school options for elementary-age children. Under the care of adult supervision, children in these programs spend after school hours being creative, constructive, and productive. The five-year grant will provide after school programming at PCS or at the YMCA for free or at a significantly reduced rate. How can you help? All you need to do is click the below survey and sign your name! That simple act will demonstrate to the grant authorizers the significance of this grant to the communities that the YMCA serves. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScISNJcz_uBNiZtgQkosabuhnGK7wP9mw-VtTlsxSre91sCJw/viewform

Mrs. McLaughlin's summary of a portion of the day's itinerary: - "We spent the afternoon on a bus tour of the Ring of Kerry. An amazing route that goes past unbelievable scenery and history. We stopped at a beach, lookout points, and small quaint villages." - The following are images of the vistas, and beach. You may catch Mr. Shuskey engaging in some impromptu marine science lessons.
