Benjamin Cosor Elementary School—50 Years Old and Counting Benjamin Cosor Elementary School—50 Years Old and Counting
On a bright summer morning of September 22, 2017, the students and staff of Fallsburg’s Benjamin Cosor Elementary School assembled in the large courtyard in front of the school to begin a school-wide celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the dedication of the building that was opened in 1967.

Principal Mary Kate Stinehour welcomed everyone. FCSD Superintendent Dr. Ivan Katz informed the assembly about the namesake for the building, Benjamin Cosor, who was a long-term member of the School Board. The Superintendent then led everyone in singing Happy Birthday to the school.
Fallsburg Begins a New Way to Celebrate Birthdays in School Fallsburg Begins a New Way to Celebrate Birthdays in School
In the interests of creating a healthier way to celebrate birthdays in the Fallsburg Central School District (FCSD), the Wellness Committee has made available a Celebration Cart to classrooms. Through the generosity of Sullivan County Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE), the mobile cart is brightly decorated and filled with games and activities that the birthday children can select and share with classmates during a brief celebration period. Third grade teacher and member of the Wellness Committee Mrs. Jennie Kohler took the Cart for its maiden voyage on September 27 to acknowledge the birthdays of three students: Fatoumata, Blanca and Inmer.

After singing Happy Birthday to their classmates, the kids immersed themselves in table tennis, jump rope, Lego and other activities. The room was filled with healthy exercise and interaction among students. Mrs. Kohler thought it was a great success and has shared her experience with other teachers. By the cheering and smiles on the faces of all the third graders, they are sharing their delight with siblings and other students as well. By all signs, the Celebration Cart is a big success.
