Citizen's of the World Club

Sources of Strength Project

Sources of Strength Peer Leaders focused on helping our Gananda students think about their family support networks this month. Family support can be found in those people you are related to, or those who you choose. SOS leaders challenged students to identify those people in their life that provide support to them when they need it most and accept them for who they are. We created a Gananda Family Tree to display the students responses.

Rachel's Challenge Club Donates to the Humane Society of Wayne County

On December 14th, students from the Rachel's Challenge Club visited The Humane Society of Wayne County to drop off donations that were collected at all three schools and to spend some time with the adorable furry residents.

Gananda Central School District communicates information through a variety of ways to ensure our parents and community are informed. As a reminder, if you are not receiving phone calls, emails, or text messages from the district and you would like to, please contact the public relations office directly at GanandaPR@gananda.org. The contact information that we have on file in the parent portal is what we use to contact you, so if it isn't up to date, you may not receive our communications. You can also receive information on our Facebook page: www.Facebook.com/GanandaSchools and/or our Twitter handle at: @WeAreGananda.

ID Required to Enter Gananda HS - please bring your driver's license when you come in!

Ruben A. Cirillo High School uses the same Raptor visitor management system that the Middle School used. The system provides an overall safer environment for our students and staff by enabling us to check visitors, contractors, and volunteers in the high school building. All visitors to Ruben A. Cirillo High School will need to present a valid ID to be scanned into the Raptor system. For our incoming Freshman parents and guardians, the Middle School system does not transfer over to the High School so you will need to provide your license the first time you enter the school. Once you have been scanned into the system you should not need to provide your license again.
