Genet Elementary School students played the parts of historical and contemporary figures such as Muhammad Ali, Paul Revere and Alex Morgan at the annual 4th Grade Interactive Wax Museum in the school gym last week.
Students and staff on the Genet 5th Grade Field Trip to Great Escape are returning to school earlier than planned due to rainy weather. They will be leaving the park shortly and estimated back at school at approximately 3:30 p.m. Because this is after regular dismissal, students will still need to be picked up from school as planned.
East Greenbush Central School District was recently informed by the New York State Education Department that all seven of its schools are in “Good Standing” in accordance with the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act plan. Additionally, Columbia High School was named a Recognition School for its high performance.
East Greenbush Central School District will be introducing new report cards for Kindergarten and Grade 1 students beginning in the 2019-20 school year. The new standards-based report cards were developed by district teachers this year and approved by the Board of Education at its public meeting on May 22.
More than two dozen staff members who are retiring from the East Greenbush Central School District this year were recognized for their service at Wednesday’s Board of Education meeting in the Genet Elementary School auditorium. Congratulations and best wishes!
