Superintendent's Message

C V Superintendent David P Gill

Dear CV Community,

Happy holidays! The year is moving quickly and we have had many CV celebrations! Thank you to those who joined us for our Humanities Night which is a fun, educational family night for our community. Two informative parent/guardian events are taking place at CV in December. One is a program called “Shawna has a Secret,” dealing with substance abuse. The other is a December 12 presentation on supporting families around routines, schedules and structure. Our holiday concerts showcase our students’ vocal and instrumental talents. These talents also shine through the Chenango Valley Middle School Theatre Guild’s production of “Disney’s Lion King JR.” In addition, many of our Warrior athletes excelled this fall season! We’re so proud of all of our Warriors for their many accomplishments!

Some reminders:

  • Please help us with our continued efforts to ensure good student attendance. There are numerous research studies tying student attendance to student success. Students are our first priority and we want them here each day so we can help them learn and grow.
  • We continue to monitor transportation issues. Although we hope you have seen some improvement, we continue to have issues if there is sickness in our transportation department. We have three substitute drivers, but when a fourth person is ill, we are unable to man all 16 buses required to transport our students. It is important to note that we need 16 buses and 16 drivers regardless of the start/end times or routing.  
  • First quarter grades are complete. Please reflect on them and reach out to your child’s teacher(s) and principal for any support you may need. We believe all students can learn and will never give up on any student. Our partnership with families is critical to help ensure student success.
  • For those families with elementary students, we are finalizing our relocation plan for the 2019-2020 school year for grades pre-K through 5. Presently, we will be moving grades pre-K through 2 to our Chenango Bridge Elementary building during the summer of 2019. They will be housed at CB for the fall and early winter seasons, while renovations take place at Port Dickinson Elementary School. We anticipate the completion of PD by November/December of 2019, at which time we will move grades pre-K through 2 back to PD. Meanwhile, we will be relocating grades 3 through 5 to St. Francis of Assisi School for the 2019-2020 school year. The Chenango Valley School District utilized this school in the early 2000s during the middle/high school renovation project. It was most recently used for 4.5 years by the Binghamton City School District to house their MacArthur Elementary School during the last flood. More details will be forthcoming as the year progresses.
  • For the families of our middle/high school students, we ask that you continue to have conversations with your children, especially in regards to dangerous and illegal behaviors such as smoking, vaping, underage drinking and more serious drug use. As you know, these behaviors are harmful to our youth and are against school policy and state law. Please help us to be proactive with our students to encourage them to not engage in these behaviors and report any concerns to the appropriate building principals.

Lastly, I want to thank our CV Board of Education, the wonderful staff of Chenango Valley, our student body and our supportive Chenango Valley families for working with me to help make CV shine!


Enjoy the holidays with your families and friends,
david
