      It has come to our attention that the Mountain Eagle made an error in the article that appeared in last week’s edition about our school budget.  

      The figure of $9,367,985 in the second paragraph is incorrect (it is the budget figure from 2017-2018).  

      The correct figure for both the first budget and the new budget to be proposed on June 19th is $9,739,213. This new budget represents a 2.27 percent increase in the tax levy, with no increase in spending. The board will use an additional $70,000 from reserves, for a total of $193,730 from reserves, to balance the budget and remain within the allowable tax cap.

      The Budget Newsletter that was recently mailed out reflects the correct information.

Summer Reading at

Stamford Central School 2018

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

      Your child will bring home a packet of summer reading information in the next day or so. Please be on the lookout!

      Believe it or not, the sunny days of summer are right around the corner. Summertime is a fun and exciting time for students filled with outdoor activities, sports, carefree days spent with friends, or maybe even an epic family vacation. While these are all wonderful things, it’s important to incorporate a time for reading in your busy summer schedules to avoid what education researchers refer to as the “Summer Slide.”

What Is the Summer Slide?

      Also commonly known as summer learning loss, the summer slide phenomenon occurs when students lose the skills or knowledge acquired during the previous school year due to a prolonged absence from academically enriching activities. Studies have shown that this loss can amount to as much as a month’s worth of material or more, which will need to be retaught during the next school year. 

      Research has shown that summer reading loss is cumulative over time. While some struggling students are falling behind, others are moving ahead with their skills, creating a wider gap each year. By middle school, children who lose reading skills over the summer have accumulated a two-year lag behind their classmates.

Prevent the Summer Slide

      Starting in kindergarten, if a student reads 20 minutes a day at home, they will hear 1.8 million words per year. They will have read for 851 hours by 6th grade and on standardized tests, they will likely score better than 90% of their peers! 

 

What Can You Do to Help?

  • Encourage your child to read at least 15-30 minutes every day or a minimum of 4-5 books during summer break.
  • Motivate them to read anything at their reading level that interests them; whether it’s comics, magazines, graphic novels, recipes, etc.
  • Take your child to the Stamford Village Library (or other public library) to check out books. Let your child participate in summer reading programs and other activities.
  • Keep track of your child’s reading with the attached reading log.
  • Read 5 books (or more J), and record them on the attached summer reading log
  • Bring your completed reading log to Ms. Rutherford by Monday, September 10, to receive a free hand bookmark! (while supplies last) and special recognition.
  •  
  • o   A $10 Amazon gift card will be awarded to the student who reads the most books in the following three categories:

    Ø Students entering grades 1-3 in the fall

    Ø Students entering grades 4-5 in the fall

    Ø Students entering grades 6-7 in the fall

    Have a great summer and happy reading!!

      Shawn Davis will join Stamford Central School as Principal starting July 1, 2018.      

      After convening five advisory groups made up of parents and community members, faculty and staff, students, administration and board members, the groups unanimously recommended Ms. Davis as the next Principal for Stamford Central School. A three year contract was approved at the April 12 board of education meeting.          

      Shawn Davis comes to Stamford with a wealth of knowledge, experience, and skills as an educational leader.  She has twenty-two years of service within the Liberty Central School District. At Liberty High School she taught Social Studies for sixteen years before being named Dean of Students and eventually Middle/High School Assistant Principal . Before her tenure at Liberty, Ms. Davis taught Global Studies, Algebra, and Geometry at Jeffersonville-Youngsville Central School District.      

      Ms. Davis grew up in Honesdale, Pennsylvania and attended school in the Wayne Highlands School District, graduating from Honesdale High School. She received her undergraduate degree from SUNY New Paltz in Secondary Education with a specialization in Social Studies. This specialty area informs her leadership and teaching approach, as she views public education as the foundation of enlightened and engaged citizenry. Ms. Davis earned her master’s degree in Social Studies Education in 1999, and a Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Administration in 2005, both from SUNY New Paltz.      

      Ms. Davis views a collaborative school environment as the key to creating successful teachers and students. She believes partnerships with parents and community partners are essential to enriching the experience at Stamford Central School. She eagerly looks forward to joining the Stamford Central School community and becoming a local resident.      

      During her free time, Ms. Davis enjoys reading, hiking in the mountains, and being mother to Jessica, a naval officer, and Jennifer, an upcoming freshman at Ithaca College.
