Football on field Football Meeting on August 1
Dear Parents/Guardians,
The Fallsburg football program is anxiously awaiting the start of the 2017 football season. There will be a vital parent/player meeting on Tuesday, August 1st at the Fallsburg Junior/Senior High School auditorium at 6:00pm for all 7th and 8th graders interested in participating. We will be discussing important information relevant to the upcoming modified season.

At this time, not enough participants have shown interest to complete the necessary roster; therefore attendance to this meeting is very important and pivotal for the direction of the program. If for some reason you are unable to attend and your child is interested in playing, please email me at: [email protected]

STEAM program demonstration Fallsburg STEAM Team Presents to Board of Education
Fallsburg Central School District (FCSD) Superintendent Dr. Ivan Katz invited the Fallsburg Jr/Sr High School STEAM Team to present its most recent project to the Board of Education at the meeting of June 17, 2017.

The acronym STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art (and design), and mathematics. Art and design were added with the “A” to the original STEM designation that has been a focus of American education over the past six years to improve competitiveness in science and technology development.

Dr. Katz witnessed the presentation of Fallsburg’s STEAM Team at the Hurleyville Arts Center and was so impressed he invited the faculty facilitator science teacher Don Thomas to show the School Board. Eighth grader G. Pantel made the presentation.

Miss Pantel used a foam board stand that explained what STEAM is all about and how the Fallsburg team has used the principles to create their first major project—an automated announcement board using a YODA software program and operated wirelessly. The students programed, designed and built the board that will display the daily lunch menu on monitors in the cafeteria and wherever else they are located in the building. The display will show other events as well. Daily and special announcements will go through the system. Miss Pantel will be responsible for running the system beginning in September.

The Board was very impressed with Miss Pantel’s poise and presentation. Dr. Katz thanked her and Mr. Thomas for the great work they were doing, for representing the Fallsburg Central School District in an outstanding manner and for making the community proud of their accomplishments.

Volunteers in classroom Fallsburg Board of Education Honors Volunteers
During the meeting of June 21, 2017, the Fallsburg Board of Education honored the Volunteers in the Classroom (VIC) that had been supporting students and staff throughout the school year in both Fallsburg Jr/Sr High School and Benjamin Cosor Elementary School. Superintendent Dr. Ivan Katz thanked the volunteers for sharing a part of their lives with the school district by spending many hours each week offering in-class aid with the children and administrative help for the staff. Dr. Katz stated that the positive effects on students and teachers have been measurable.

Board Member Dr. Stephanie Phillips, who was instrumental in helping create the VIC program, thanked all the volunteers present and expressed her good fortune in meeting these outstanding members of the Fallsburg community.

Volunteers receiving certificates of appreciation were Shawn Ferris, Heather Manor, Christina Frunzi, Hermine Abreu, Sonya Smith, Diosdado Santiago, Barbara Uhrie, Jenny Gagnon, Robert Schreier, and Andrea Hook. Mrs. Hook was unable to attend the meeting because she was chaperoning the Sixth Grade Dance!

Robert Longo and Sons Robert Longo Enters Fallsburg Hall of Fame

Fallsburg Central School District inducted Robert Longo into the Fallsburg Hall of Fame on June 25, 2017 as part of the High School Graduation Ceremonies. Superintendent Dr. Ivan Katz welcomed Mr. Longo, his family, friends, former colleagues and students. He presented the highlights of Mr. Longo’s outstanding service as an art teacher for thirty-five years in the District, to the greater Sullivan County community, and to the country for his service as World War II veteran of the Army Air Corps. Board of Education Vice President Joe Collura added details on Longo’s military service and his impact on himself and fellow students over the many years of teaching.

Supported by two of his three sons, Mr. Longo thanked Dr. Katz for the award and the honor of joining several of his colleagues previously installed in the Hall of Fame. But the most important thing to him as he spoke to the audience was his gratitude at being able to serve his community and his country in World War II. His words merited a huge ovation filled with gratitude from the young graduates on stage and the families packing the auditorium.

To this very day at age 95, he stays in touch with the few survivors of his squadron and their families. Fallsburg appreciates Mr. Robert Longo very dearly, and the school and community are proud to have his photo and plaque in the Hall of Fame display in the High School Lobby.

We are looking to collect copies of pictures or other materials that have any representation of the last 50 years so that we can showcase them in our school and show how proud we are to have made this huge accomplishment together! These pictures can include people from the past or present, different activities or events that people may have attended, memorabilia from the years, or even pictures of clothes and cars from different periods of time.
