Superintendent's Message

Dear CV Community,

Our students and staff have been busy throughout the district.  We have had many celebrations thanks to our staff, students, and community!  

We held another successful Humanities Night – celebrating the joys of learning in a fun, meaningful way.  Port Dickinson and Chenango Bridge celebrated Veterans Day with exceptional programs, teaching our students gratitude and appreciation for the men and women who serve our country.  Many classes also participated in writing notes and drawing pictures that have been sent to our men and women overseas aboard USS America.  
We began a new writing program for grades K-8 which encourages writing daily and expanding their writing beyond response to text.  Students are receiving direct instruction on how to improve their own personal writing skills in the genres of narrative opinion and informative writing. We began “Ag in our Classroom” at Chenango Bridge, which teaches our students about the opportunities that exist in this area.  The middle and high schools have also been busy working on many projects that support their learning.  

A huge thank you to all of our fall coaches and athletes.  We had a successful fall athletic season especially in girls’ swimming, girls’ soccer, girls’ tennis, and cheerleading. We are so proud of all of our students for their academic and athletic commitment to excellence.

Our Assistant Superintendent Mrs. Michelle Feyerabend and I have enjoyed touring the district’s buildings and classrooms.  We have enjoyed lunches with members of the 6th through 12th grade classes in the past weeks.  It’s important to hear from our students so we can learn how to become better at what we do – educating them.  I’m confident that we all want the same thing – for our students to reach their highest potential.

As you are aware, we have a community capital project vote on December 5. We encourage you to come out and vote, and appreciate your voice in our school community. 

In closing, I wish you and your families a happy holiday season.  Embrace your family and friends, and be thankful for belonging to a great family community.  When I am asked why I have stayed in the Binghamton area for all of my life, I share that it is a great place to live and raise a family.  I hope that as part of the Chenango Valley community you feel the same.

Sincerely,
david
David P. Gill
