A Summer of Project Based Learning at Fallsburg Schools

As part of the Summer School Program at Fallsburg Central School District, 200 junior high and elementary school students are involved in project-based learning. The five day a week for six weeks program provides a special opportunity for the instructor and the students. Summer School Program Director Ms. Tammy Slick explains that project-based learning is student driven. Students gain a deeper understanding of material by investigating questions, proposing hypotheses and possible explanations. Students work collaboratively to discuss and challenge each other’s ideas, which lead to further inquiry. Students engage in problem solving and critical thinking skills with each other and are fully engaged to find meaningful solutions to their questions.
 

Fallsburg Students Enjoying and Learning at Robotics Camp

The Fallsburg Robotics Team participated in a two-day and two-night a week camp at the High School from July 19 to August 25. Faculty Advisor and Science teacher Don Thomas organized the activity after the Robotics Team performed so successfully during the past few school years. The Camp was paid for by the 21st Century Grant as part of the Extended Day Program.
 

Fallsburg High School Welcomes Hall of Famer Andrew Neiderman
On the evening of August 5, 2016, dozens of Andrew Neiderman’s former students, their families and teaching colleagues welcomed him back to Fallsburg High School, his alma mater and the place where he taught from the early 1960’s to the early 1980’s. Mr. Neiderman set out at that time for California to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a writer.
 
Vision Statement
Dear School Community Member:

It is my honor to present to you the vision statement for the Fallsburg Central school district:
Vision Statement

This statement was months in the making. Various members of the school community worked with me and submitted drafts that would ultimately be considered by the district visioning committee. In particular I would like to thank all of the school groups that spent time working on previous drafts of the vision statement and let the creative juices flow in our group work activities.

The following 12 committees met with me in the months of March, April, May and June to create their vision statement submissions:

  • Superintendent’s Round Table
  • BOE/Student Round Table
  • Administrative Council
  • JSHS Department Chairs
  • District-wide DCIP Committee
  • District-wide Professional Development Committee
  • English Language Learners Leadership Team
  • Wellness Committee
  • Board of Education (at a retreat)
  • Technology Committee
  • BCES Building Leadership Team
  • District-Wide Visioning Committee (met 2x)

Following the first meeting of the district visioning committee, we had a two-week comment period for members of our school community to review and comment on the vision statement draft. The visioning committee then met a second time, following the comment period, to finalize the vision statement while considering the feedback garnered from the comment period.

This vision statement will guide the creation of future district goals and we will proudly display it around the buildings in our district.

Ivan J. Katz, Ed.D
