School Announcements and Upcoming Events
Annual Celebration AT LONG LAKE CENTRAL SCHOOL
Long Lake Central School announces a day-long student and Community Event --- A Foreign Exchange Gala on Thursday, March 5, 2015.  During the day foreign students from nearby schools are invited to come to Long Lake and interact with faculty, students and visiting instructors in dance, music and art. The artists will also be available in the evening so community participants can try their hand at various crafts and art with Lausanne, dance to the music of Peter, Paul, and George, hear the tales of Long Lakers living abroad and enjoy Asian and European cuisine including paella from Spain, dumplings from China, bratwurst from Germany, baklava from Armenia, Stromboli from Italy and a variety of other dishes.
For the past several years, the faculty, students and administration of Long Lake Central School have provided an evening of fun, food, culture, history and art as a means of thanking the Long Lake community for their support through the year.  The community is invited to come at 5:00 p.m. to sample the cuisine, dance to live music, meet the host families of the foreign students, learn about our neighboring foreign exchange students through live presentations, and enjoy the visiting artists. 
          Artists include Peter Davis, a musician, who will perform on many different instruments ranging from the guitar to the piano and including the whistle.  He will be joined by George Wilson and his fiddle, banjo and guitar.  Direct from the popular Dance Flurry Festival in Saratoga Springs which he has organized for the past 18 years, is Paul Rosenberg, dancer, dance teacher and dance director.  Lausanne Allen from Vermont is a weaver, fiber artist and a dance caller.  She will offer Arts and Crafts of both European and Asian cultures.
 
 
This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the NYS Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature and administered by the ADK Lakes Center for the Arts.

PARP 2015 is Coming!
PARP begins this month at Long Lake Central School and this year our theme is Rainforest Reading.  PARP stands for Parents as Reading Partners and is a national program celebrated each March, encouraging literacy through at-home reading between students and their caregivers. Beginning this weekend, read at home with your child each night for 15 minutes.  Fill out the attached student reading tally for each day and send back to school.  We will then post them on our giant Rainforest Tree Display outside the elementary library.  We are hoping to fill the entire trunk and branches with our reading tallies.  (Pizza Hut Book-It reading counts toward PARP!)

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me at slong@longlakecsd.org.  And please, mark your calendar for our evening PARP Rainforest Extravaganza (Thursday, March 26 from 5-7 pm) and Scholastic Book Fair (from March 23 through March 27).

Thank you for your continued support of this wonderful, literacy program!

Marvelous Money Day!
Once a month, 3rd graders participate in "Marvelous Money Day."  For the month of January, the students came to the Marvelous Money Day Restaurant.  They were expected to have proper restaurant etiquette and manners.  The 3rd graders did a fantastic job with this.  You would be proud!  

They were each given 25 pretend dollars to spend.  The meal was pretend food, ordered from pretend menus, but the dessert, drink, and complimentary appetizer was REAL FOOD!  At the end of the meal, they were given a bill and were expected to pay for their meal as well as leave an appropriate tip.  
This Friday, they will be coming to the Marvelous Money Day Theater!  Who knows what other marvelous money events are in store for the future!
