Congratulations to Marlboro students Hailey Monroe, Rosendo Hernandez, Amelia DeSousa, Destiney Cronister, and Lizi Gordiashvili (not pictured). They are the winners of this year's President's Challenge Scholarship, sponsored by SUNY Ulster and the SUNY Ulster Foundation. Awarded in Grade 8, the scholarship is designed to assist first-generation college-bound students. The chosen students will receive guidance counseling and mentoring throughout high school and, upon graduation, will be able to attend SUNY Ulster tuition-free for two years.
It was an exciting day in Marlboro as the lottery selection took place to determine which children would fill the 42 available seats for the school district's Univeral Pre-Kindergarten program, which will be launching in September. Names were chosen at random by Board of Education trustee JoAnn Reed, as Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction Robin Hecht looked on. Parents/guardians of all applicants will be notified soon as to whether their child has been chosen for a seat or placed on the waiting list.
The Marlboro BOE will be meeting on 12/17 at 7:30 PM. The meeting will be held at @GOMHSDukes & broadcast live on the Marlboro CSD YouTube page.
The Marlboro BOE recently approved the Superintendent’s recommendation to “pause” in-person learning for a period of one week following the upcoming Winter Recess, Presidents’ Week, and Spring Recess. For more information, including exact dates, visit http://bit.ly/3gx8snk
Marlboro High School senior Lena Atkins joined Grade 2 teacher Mrs. DeMarco’s Google Meet to read a book to students during virtual learning last week. Mrs. DeMarco and Lena collaborated to plan the read-aloud for the students.
Exciting news! The District has received its long-awaited order of 550 Chromebooks. Technology staff from the service and support groups have been busy working together to process the devices and start getting them into the hands of students in Grades 1-3.
