Christopher Putney received one of the highest honors a student-musician can achieve in the state. The seventh grader performed the bass clarinet with the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Zone 2 Area All-State Symphonic Band on November 4 at Batavia High School. He was only one of two students from the Genesee Valley School Music Association to perform with the group of 75 of the top band students (grades 7-9) from around Zone 2. To be accepted into the group, Christopher successfully auditioned at Solo Festival in May. Congratulations, Christopher! #PrideInTheHive (Pictured is Christopher with Ms. Gottschall, 5-8 instrumental music teacher)

Our Jr. High students were rakin' and rollin' in the leaves yesterday!!! They were joined at our annual Rake, Rattle and Roll event by faculty/staff and National Honor Society members. This long-standing tradition has allowed our students to give back the community for decades. It was a fun and productive day! #PrideInTheHive (Thanks to our awesome JH team for the photos)

Buster just wants our kids at PCS to stay safe while riding the bus. That’s why he’s visiting several elementary classrooms today, along with his friends Trisha and Ed from the Bus Garage, to remind students about very important rules to follow as bus riders. #PrideInTheHive

Mrs. Lowery’s 8th grade business students started their own business, School Supply Depot. Students can buy pencils, erasers, folders, snacks and more. Prices range from 25 cents to a dollar. The store is open Mondays and Fridays during 2nd period in the JH technology/business classroom. Students are experimenting with marketing techniques, so we caught them in Mrs. Manchester’s classroom this morning pitching the business to 5th graders. #PrideInTheHive

When we talk about making connections with our students, our teachers and staff are the best of the best. You won’t find a group more dedicated to their students’ success or more in-tune with their individual needs. Whether it’s in the classroom, walking through the hallways, or visiting The Autism Nature Trail like this morning, the passion and love these educators have for their students shines through. #PrideInTheHive

We caught Mr. Sporleder’s agriculture mechanics class hard at work this morning. Students started the school year by disassembling small engines and, after studying each component, are working to rebuild them. This is just one unit of study for the new course offering. The engine kits, workstations, and some tools were made possible through funding by The Foundation for Perry’s Educational Future, Inc. #PrideInTheHive

Accompanied by her family, colleagues, and students, Jr./Sr. High Principal Rebecca Belkota was recognized this morning as an ATHENA Leadership Award finalist at the inaugural celebration hosted by the Livingston County Area Chamber at SUNY Geneseo. The awards honor local women dedicated to community, professionalism, and leadership. The Chamber sought nominations last summer, seeking examples of professional leadership, community leadership, personal leadership or mentorship. Principal Belkota embodies all of that. We are grateful to have her at PCS and congratulate her on being named a finalist! Congratulations to all the finalists, especially Ms. Helen Serefine for being named the ATHENA Award winner in Livingston County. #PrideInTheHive
