Graduate Walks FHS Graduating Seniors Parade Through the Elementary School
Earlier this spring Fallsburg High School Principal Michael Williams and Benjamin Cosor Elementary School Principal Mary Kate Stinehour were discussing a great idea they saw on Facebook—just before graduation, a senior class went back as a group to the school district’s elementary school in their caps and gowns. They loved the idea and set a date of Monday morning, June 12, 2017 to replicate it at BCES.

The seniors’ parade started at 9:30 led by Valedictorian Olaf Peterson Langeland and Salutatorian Pu (Sam) Cheng. The enthusiasm and congratulatory signs held by BCES students lining both sides of the corridors inspired the marchers. As they walked, they recalled memories of the years spent in these hallways and in the classrooms with many of their former teachers applauding them that day.

Afterwards BCES teachers recounted the enthusiasm of their current students witnessing the older students in their caps and gowns. “We will do that some day!” exclaimed many of the youngsters. Some of the kids were siblings of the graduates so that made the parade a source of pride and special excitement as they were literally “looking up” to the seniors walking by.

From everyone’s reaction that morning, it appears that this event will become a tradition in the Fallsburg School District. Now, the school’s Facebook Page will be filled with some of its own memories for other schools to see.

Dual Language Program Dual Language Program

Benjamin Cosor Elementary School students will be able to become biliterate, in English and Spanish, in a new, dual language program in 2017–18. Available to students in kindergarten and first grade, the program will prepare students for an increasingly diverse society, and make them more marketable, in education and the workforce, in the 21st Century.

Numerous research has shown that bilingual individuals have distinct advantages over their monolingual peers, including better memory, literacy, decision-making skills, problem-solving, and attention to tasks. Studies have also shown that bilingual individuals have, on average, a later onset of dementia when compared to their monolingual peers. Bilingual students have also been found to be happier than monolingual students, and outperform them on standardized tests.

Interested parents will need to register their students for the dual language program, in kindergarten or first grade. To do so, parents should complete the attached form, and return it to the main office of Benjamin Cosor Elementary School, 15 Old Falls Road, Fallsburg, NY, 12733, by June 16, 2017.

Fallsburg Central School District will be providing a parent information meeting--for interested parents of kindergarten and first grade students (2017–18)--on Monday, June 12, at 5:30 PM in the Benjamin Cosor Elementary School Cafeteria, 15 Old Falls Road, Fallsburg, NY. For more information, parents may contact Dr. Matthew T. Evans, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, at (845) 434-5884, or Ms. Mary Kate Stinehour, BCES Principal, at (845) 434-4110.

 
Celebrating 50 Years! Celebrating 50 Years!
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. We ask that you only provide copies of materials, rather than bring in anything that could potentially get damaged. We set up a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BCES50Years, where we are asking our parents of students, school staff, retired staff or any community members to post to that page or bring in your copies of pictures or materials to the school addressed to Mrs. Pacheco.
