Parent Commitment Survey for 2nd Half of School Year

We are finalizing the plans this week and will have the commitment survey emailed out to you at the end of this week. Stay tuned for further instruction coming soon!

Registration Now Open for the Gananda Spelling Bee

The Gananda Central School District Spelling Bee is scheduled to be held on February 11. With current COVID-19 restrictions, we are not exactly sure if the format will be the same as previous years, but we would like to get an idea of who is interested in participating. We invite all students interested in participating from grades 4 - 8 to register so we can begin the event planning process. Please complete the Online Registration Form if you are interested in participating.

********************************

Reminder

If a student or staff member is at home when they begin to show symptoms, it is very important that they notify the Covid-19 Lead Nurse, Kim Roach at 315-986-3521 x2519 or kroach@gananda.org.
