Reactions and Reflections by CET Artists a Year After Sandy

It was an event that effected many lives, both during and after the storm. Students saw trees blown over or tree limbs scattered throughout the town. Some students remained without power at their home for many days after the storm. Read more...

Adults Learn Too! Making Pickles at PVC School and More
Who says learning is just for kids? Twelve Croton adults learned how to be more self-sufficient by
learning how to make their own pickles. Margaret Von Der Meden shared a generational family recipe and everyone enrolled in the class held at PVC Middle School took home their own jar of pickles they made themselves. This is one of more than 40 great workshops/classes being offered through the Croton-Harmon School District’s Continuing Education this fall. Iris Stevens, the Director of Croton-Harmon Continuing Education firmly believes that adults in this district deserve exciting workshops and classes too; especially classes that help them become more self -sufficient.

News from the Assistant Principal,
Mrs. Kerri Bianchi
Kids will be kids. Sometimes they play a little too rough, at times they really fight and occasionally they bully. At CET, all of these behaviors are taken very seriously and often require some type of disciplinary action. When behaviors like these occur, students usually end up spending some time with me or Mrs. Maloney so that we can help to resolve the issue. It is very important for us as educators and you as parents to be able to distinguish between these types of behaviors. Below you will find a helpful chart that identifies the characteristics of these specific behaviors.

We are fortunate that the CET PTA sponsored the Professional Lice Screening event in September. However, lice are constantly around us, especially within the elementary school age population. Parents have continued to phone us about new cases, and the Health Office has also diagnosed students in many classes. For this reason, I am asking all parents to keep checking their children each week.
