Happy New Year Titan Families!

Students have recovered from being able to sleep in through the holiday break and seem to be back on track with the routine of school. We had a nice treat this morning as the NiCastro family hosted the first Breakfast with the Principal for this school year. We had a nice group of staff and students who mixed and mingled over breakfast. It is a nice way to connect with our families and form the relationships that carry over into the classroom.


If you would like to schedule a Breakfast with the Principal call Mrs. Gaudino at 670-8001.

The HOBY Award!

Founded in 1958, the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Organization or “HOBY” has had as its mission to inspire and develop a global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. HOBY programs are conducted annually throughout the United States, serving local and international high school students.

Geotech making progress...

Our Geotech class has started to make above ground progress with the warm weather right after the holiday break. They are constructing a classroom gazebo for our main courtyard which we hope to have done this spring in time for the warm weather. Thanks to Mr. Mangos, Mr. Tuchrello, Mrs. Abbe and the entire GeoTech crew for their hard work! (as we all know, not all the days are as pleasant as these in Western New York)
