Thank you so much for what you do to support our students, teachers, Teaching Assistants, Aides, bus drivers, nurse, front office staff, maintenance, cleaners, and everyone that works with your child on a daily basis to make sure that they have every opportunity to become a successful citizen that makes a positive difference in our community, country, and world!

Cornell Cooperative and GST BOCES Celebrate "Farm to School" Grant with our school!

Last week was Agriculture Literacy Week across NY state! This is the week every year that we celebrate agriculture and how food gets to our plate. On Friday, March 23rd, Campbell-Savona elementary students celebrated agriculture with a farm fair event and local food tastings in our cafeteria. Students had have the option to sample a local tasting from Eat Smart New York nutrition educators, meet local producers and sample some of their products, learn where food is grown in the region and sample the cafeteria’s local roasted potatoes. Please note that we are kept food allergy issues a priority and listed ingredients of any sampling dishes provided. This event kicked off a Farm to School grant awarded to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County along with GST BOCES. With this grant CCE Steuben hopes to increase the amount of local food in our school systems and increase awareness and knowledge of our local food system.
