MES morning program
wraps up an exciting month
Students at Middleburgh Elementary School began their day with songs and celebrations during a weekly morning program on Jan. 28. Led by Principal Kim Ross, kindergarten through third-grade students kicked off the event by reciting the schoolwide values of responsibility, safety and respect.
Students who achieved milestones or have stood out in their classes were honored as Students of the Week. Because Jan. 28 was the last Thursday of the month, the school also recognized January’s Kids with Character, students who have exemplified character strengths taught in each classroom
for their understanding and use of goal-setting inside and outside of the classroom. Following the celebrations, staff members took a moment to speak with students about stranger safety, mirroring a districtwide effort to educate children about safety issues and practices. Parents are encouraged to talk with their children about safety at school and in the community, and the district has provided a
resource of age-appropriate ways
(PDF) to handle these discussions. Congratulations to MES students
and staff on another successful morning program!

Support Sunship Earth through recycling
students and staff are seeking a bit of
Earth-friendly support for Sunship Earth at
Middleburgh Central School District. Sunship
Earth is a hands-on environmental science
program that was established over 30 years
ago and teaches students about key science
topics including biology, food sources,
power and alternative energy, among other
environmental science fundamentals and
lessons on team building and physical
education during a week-long outdoor
educational experience. Community members
can support Sunship Earth by returning
recyclable bottles and cans to the Schoharie
County ARC Redemption Center at 121
Opportunity Drive in Schoharie and asking
the attendant to direct the returned deposit
funds to the Middleburgh Sunship Earth
account. Funds raised will support camp supplies, food
for participants and other program costs.
