Dear Kindergarten Parent/Guardian,
We wouldlike to formally invite you and your child to attend the first of our monthlyFABLES nights here at Canaseraga afterschool. Each month, the ACCORDafterschool program will be hosting a FABLES night. FABLES (Families Building LearningExperiences with Schools) is built upon the idea that lifelong literacy beginswith families and family engagement. Thefirst and third Friday of each month, ACCORD afterschool personnel will providea literacy workshop for a chosen grade level to attend along with theirparents. The workshop will be centeredon a specific theme or idea and then families will be given a project tocomplete. Their project will be fun andbased on literacy, creativity and most importantly, family engagement. On the second night of FABLES, children willbe asked to present their project for the group. Each family that attends both workshop nightswill be entered in a drawing to win a family game night package to be awardedat the conclusion of presentation night.
For theMonth of December, we have selected the CCS Kindergarten class to attend ourfirst month of FABLES. Our chosen themewill be “Holiday Traditions”. Wesincerely hope you can join us for this evening of fun and family engagement. To reserve your family’s spot or if you haveany questions, please contact Katherine Lefler, Program Manager for the ACCORDAfterschool Program at CCS.

What a spectacular evening of Family Fun had by all at our annual Canaseraga Community Halloween Party! More than 250 people came out to take part of everything from face painting, dancing and costume contests to the haunted fire hall and chili/soup cook off. Several high school students volunteered their time setting up, working and cleaning up for the event and many area businesses made incredible donations to make the event a success. Special thanks to Hark’s and Gelser’s Farms for donating over 100 pumpkins for the event, Mastin’s for donating 3 sheet pizzas, The Nunda Family Pharmacy for donating over $400 in door prizes, Oliver’s for door prize donations, Dansville’s Cutting Crew, Pizza King, The Sugar Bowl, Star Theatre, Zoom Tan, The Hair Pace, Harvey’s Maple Syrup, Wilson’s Beef Farm and Dogwood Stationary Company for donating wonderful raffle baskets and raffle basket items and of course the Canaseraga Volunteer Fire Department and several Canaseraga Community Organizations for helping to fund this year’s event. Without all of these fantastic benefactors coming together, we wouldn’t be able to bring such wonderful family events toCCS…THANK YOU ALL!
In the coming months, 21st CCLC is goingto be offering some amazing new clubs along with some oldies but goodies with a few new twists!
