Since I first arrived at Cold Spring School, I have wanted to implement an all-school, brief community-building assembly that occurs regularly at our wonderful little school. I am excited to share that we have begun to gather as a school every Monday morning right after the 8:25 bell. The size of our community allows us to comfortably gather in one place to do the flag salute, sing a patriotic song, share news, celebrate birthdays, and focus on positive behaviors. The entire school is present: teachers, aides, office staff, custodial staff, special education staff. It is a wonderful community-building activity that reminds us that we are like a big family, here to support one another, encourage one another, celebrate, and share news. If you have a moment on a Monday morning, please come and celebrate with us - you are part of the community too!
The mission of Cold Spring School is to provide a quality educational program in a secure family atmosphere, which fosters a balance of academic achievement, healthy personal development, social and environmental responsibility, and enthusiasm for lifelong learning. Teachers, staff, parents, and the community will work together to create a school environment in which cooperative problem-solving, creativity, and innovative thinking are encouraged, and the unique potential of each individual student and employee is valued and nurtured.
