By Mr. Patton, Principal Califon Public School
Great things continue at Califon Public School! This is my fourth year as principal and the community support is so overwhelmingly positive! Where else can a child attend a non-private school where the average class size is approximately nine students? Teachers can really differentiate their instruction and focus on each child. This focus truly makes Califon School a special place to be!
Students participate in awesome activities throughout the year such as Destination Imagination, Reading Olympics, and our TREP$ Marketplace to name a few. Recently, we have been able to offer after school clubs such as Model Building, Robotics, and 3D Printing. Over the next three months, we will be offering an after school Science Club for our students through Science Explorers®. These are just a few of the activities that make our school a great place at which to learn.
Some upcoming events include our annual student Fall Parade, which will start around 1:45pm on Monday, October 31st. Come check out the awesome costumes as students parade around the school and the courtyard! You can check out the winners of our annual poster contest as well. On Tuesday, December 6th, we will have our Winter Concert at 7pm, and on Tuesday, December 13th at 11:30am we will hold our annual Holiday Luncheon. We also expect to have our visitor from the north on hand!
I want to finish by thanking everybody again for their support and if you have any issues, concerns, or questions, feel free to contact us at the school at 832-2828. Have a great day!
