Dear Canaseraga Parents & Students,
Greetings from the 21st CCLC Program at Canaseraga Central School! The holidays are upon us and along with the excitement of the season, there is a lot of excitement here too.
November has been busy with music visits with Mr. Stack, ASAP, amazing K-4 and 5-8 afterschool programs and the introduction of our Cavity Free Kids program for grades K-4. Students have been having a blast participating in Harry Potter, Face Off, Greek 2 Me, Mystery Inc., Card Sharks and Oceanography. First grade FABLES nights taught students all about expressing Thankfulness. In December, second grade is invited to attend our FABLES nights to explore our next theme, “Holiday Traditions” with Miss Jess. In grades 9-12, students were given the opportunity to attend a fabulous college visit to the University of Buffalo. Students that attended reported back how amazing the day was. More college visits are coming up, don’t miss out on this experience. Legacy of Leaders will continue to bring mentors and mentees together to create learning partnerships on respect, healthy competition and all around sportsmanship. In January, there will be a Legacy of Leaders Dodgeball Tournament and Community Service Opportunities for students in grades 9-12…stay tuned for more details.
