School Vision Statement

Our school is a community of learners where we focus on the social, emotional, and academic growth of each child. We strive to establish in each student a strong academic and personal foundation through high quality instructional experiences and school-wide adoption of "Rachel's Challenge" principles. The principles are:

  1. Start a chain reaction of kindness
  2. Accept and include others
  3. Be a positive influence
As a result, we have created a school climate that is conducive to learning. Our students are able to achieve academic success in a safe, nurturing environment.

The students in Mrs. Bayles' Pre-K enrichment class at Nassakeag Elementary School visited Planet P to meet the Pod Pals during a new unit in the Imagination Playground Program. The program encourages students to work with one another and design their own course of play.

Students were first challenged to invent their own equipment and Super Space Shoes using a variety of recycled materials. Then, they wore their shoes to land on Planet “P” and chose Pod Pals, creatures that enjoy exploring and inventing, to bring back to Earth to work on future projects together.

Students across the Three Village Central School District celebrated Thanksgiving and its many traditions ahead of the holiday. They learned about the importance of giving and took part in service projects to help the greater community.

The student council at Nassakeag Elementary School collected candy from staff and students after Halloween. Members decorated brown paper bags with Thanksgiving artwork and filled them with candy to be donated to Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry at St. James Roman Catholic Church. The bags were distributed during a Thanksgiving meal held at the church.

Third graders in Mrs. Frole’s class at Minnesauke Elementary School collected food items and gift cards to create Thanksgiving meal baskets for local families in need. Students donated, designed and wrapped each basket. They also created Thanksgiving cards to be given to local veterans with their holiday meals.

At W.S. Mount Elementary School, Mrs. Costanza, Mrs. Mazzarone, and Mrs. Pushee's classes joined together to host a food drive. They assembled four gift baskets for local families to enjoy this Thanksgiving. In addition to this service project at Mount, the building hosted a schoolwide Thanksgiving parade and Pre-K classes enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast with their families.
