Capital Project Vote Passed

Fort Plain voters passed a proposed capital project on Tuesday by a margin of 83 yes votes to 15 no votes.

 

The Fort Plain Community has once again demonstrated its strong support for our schools by approving the proposed Health, Safety, and Infrastructure Capital Project,” said District Superintendent David Ziskin. “The project is a wise long-term investment that will maintain our school facilities in the most fiscally advantageous manner for our local taxpayers. Thank you again to the taxpayers of the Fort Plain CSD for your continued support of the children of Fort Plain and their schools.

 

The $11,200,000 project will improve facilities at both the Jr./Sr. High School and Elementary school, and the district hopes to have the project completed by December 2021.

 

For more information on the project visit the Capital Project page on our website.

Fort Plain Seniors Accompany Santa at Harry Hoag

On Tuesday, December 18, Mrs. Trembley’s English 12 R class traveled with Santa to visit the Kindergarten classes at Harry Hoag.

The Kindergarten students wrote letters to Santa, and the seniors helped Santa write responses, created goody bags, ornaments, and treats for the classes.

Dressed as elves, the seniors accompanied Santa to the classes where students visited with Santa, got their letters and a treat, had their picture taken, received their picture ornaments, listened to a story, and had treats made by the class. This visit was a gratifying experience for all of the students.

Fort Plain High School Technology Students Visit Hudson Valley Community College

On Monday, November 26, Fort Plain high school technology students visited Hudson Valley Community College and got a taste of the Automotive Technology, Manufacturing Technology, and Electrical Technology programs.

The trip exposed students to options of Technical Degrees once they graduate. The students were able to see the three programs in the process as current students were working on projects in class.

Students were excited to see that there is an opportunity for higher education in the Automotive field somewhat close to home.

MVP Coat Drive and Solitude Lake Management

With colder weather on the way, MVP Healthcare and United Way of Montgomery County distributed warm coats for elementary school students identified by school social workers in the five school districts, Amsterdam, Fonda-Fultonville, Canajoharie Fort Plain, and St. Johnsville, in Montgomery County.

Additionally, NBT Bank is conducting collections for hats, mittens, scarves and gently worn coats in the NBT branches thru November 15, 2018. All the collected items will be distributed through the schools.

Little Gobblers with Solitude Lake management.

SOLITUDE Lake Management is a company-wide community outreach program that fosters core values both inside and outside the workplace. They have a Little Gobblers initiative and Becky Snyder nominated the Harry Hoag Elementary School. They donated ten $25 Price Chopper gift cards to our families in the Fort Plain Central School district.

Military Boxes

The Student Council organized a drive to collect items for SSgt Samuel Hoffman, a 2012 graduate of Fort Plain.

Hoffman is one of the Combat Christmas Party committee members at Al Asad AB.

Hoffman and six others were tasked with putting together a party for the 1st Expeditionary Rescue Group that covers a couple of hundred members in Camp Flores.

The Student Council collected a wide variety of items to be used in Christmas gift baskets for the soldiers there and mailed out eight FULL boxes of things on Tuesday, November 20th so they will reach the troops in time for the holidays!

Excellent work Fort Plain students!

Eighth-Grade Family Night – October 25th

On Thursday, October 25th, the eighth-grade team hosted a Family Night.

The night started with a delicious dinner which followed by an “Escape Room” activity. Families were assigned to groups and brought to a classroom where they had to work together to figure out clues from each subject area to “escape.”

Each family in the first group to escape won a freshly baked pumpkin pie.

All families were treated to dessert in the cafeteria after escaping their room.

The eighth-grade team would like to thank the generous donors as well as the families for making the event a great time for all!
