MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL FEBRUARY STUDENTS OF THE MONTH 

February Student of Month

Oswayo Valley is proud to announce February’s Students of the Month.  Representing the High School is Jessica Edwards and Isaiah Barney receives the nomination for the Middle School.

Jessica is the daughter of Ronda Smoker-Allen and Mike Edwards.  She is in the tenth grade and participates in volleyball, basketball, Student Council, and the Arts & Humanities Club.  When asked about her favorite subject, Jessica decided upon Yearbook.  Jessica would like to attend college after high school, but hasn’t determined what her major will be yet.  Miss Vaccarelli had this to say about Jessica: “Jessica is a very hard-working and dedicated student.  She is responsible and diligent with her work and she consistently puts forth her best effort both during class and on assignments.  Jessica has a positive attitude, works well with her classmates, and is willing to help others.  She is involved in many school activities and displays the positive attributes of a successful, well-rounded student.”  Jessica’s advice to her class mates is “Try your hardest no matter how many activities you are in and do better than good enough.”

Isaiah is the son of Jeremy and Tracy Barney.  He is in the eighth grad and enjoys spending his time in 4-H, wrestling, and giving back to his community through community service.  Isaiah’s favorite subject is History.  He would like to become an engineer once he is out of school.  Mrs. Chisholm had this to say about Isaiah: “Isaiah is a terrific young man who is hard-working and is always willing to help others.  Isaiah is self-motivated and excels not only in the classroom, but also as an athlete.”

Congratulations Jessica and Isaiah!  We are proud of your accomplishments!

OSWAYO VALLEY SCHOOL BOARD APPROVES ZERO-BASED BUDGETING FOR 2015-16 SCHOOL YEAR

As the district moves forward in uncertain financial times, a zero based budget resolution was passed by the Oswayo Valley School Board on Monday November 10, 2014. With costs continuing to rise, enrollment decreasing and funding from the state stagnant, the board felt that taking a zero based budget approach  was the right thing to do for the 2015-16 budget. A copy of this resolution is attached below. The board is committed to offering a solid education program and maximizing every dollar in every area is of utmost importance in times like this.  We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this process.
