October Message

CMS Students Attend Sports Clinic:
On September 30, 2015 some of our students from CMS had the opportunity to attend the Empire State Games Adapted Sports Clinic at The CNY Family Sports Center. They had a great time trying activities such as archery, mini golf and basketball shooting. Each student received a medal and certificate for participating in the clinic. It was a great experience and one they look forward to doing again next year!

West Genesee Special Education PTSA Meeting:

I had the opportunity to talk with our West Genesee Special Education PTSA group at the first meeting of the school year.  This group works to help parents advocate for special needs children and is a place for parents and teachers to exchange information and support each other. 

The West Genesee Special Education PTSA has regular meetings just like any other PTA, with speakers or workshops on a variety of topics. They have events planned for families to attend that are designed to allow children with special needs to join in, such as a bowling outing and a picnic held each summer for the whole family.
