CCS Copenhagen Central School Summer 2010 Newsletter Newsletter Date Volume 1, Issue 1 Page 2 C o p e n h a g e n C e n t r a l S c h o o l From the Desk of the Superintendent Dear District Residents, I would like to share with you several pieces of news about our district. Summer Activities: This summer is filled with lots of exciting activities for our students: Our summer athletic camps are running throughout the summer. The Village Recreation Program is running with lots of students participating in the program. We have enjoyed the partnership with the village! Our summer soccer programs are engaging students at various levels. We are encouraging students to enjoy the game as well as learn some new skills. STARS is offering some summer opportunities as well as morning and afternoon hours to compliment the Village Recreation Program. Mrs. Greene is offering open library hours as well as a summer library camp for grades 4, 5 and 6. Retirements Two staff members will be missing this fall from the busses and roads of Copenhagen Central School District. The two drivers have been at Copenhagen for a total of 68+ years and have made a huge impact on the students at Copenhagen. We thank them for their service to the school and community. Mrs. Judy Scoville has been working for the district for 32+ years in the transportation department and in the cafeteria. She was always very professional and made sure that our students got to school and home safely. In the cafeteria, Judy made it a point to connect with the students. Judy will enjoy her retirement spending time with her children and grandchildren. Mrs. Sue Mattis has been working for the district for 36 years in the transportation department. She has a permanent seat at the bus garage and her ability to connect with the children on her bus will be greatly missed. Sue will enjoy her retirement spending time with her children and grandchildren. Thanks I would like to thank the Copenhagen community for allowing me to serve as Superintendent of Copenhagen Central School District for the past three years. I have enjoyed my experiences at Copenhagen as I have had many excellent administrative experiences and I have grown as an educator while at Copenhagen. Copenhagen has a wonderful community, staff and students that I will miss greatly. I appreciate having had the opportunity to be a member of the Copenhagen Central School District and offer my best wishes for continued success at the school district. Sincerely, Mary-Margaret Zehr Superintendent Page 3 C o p e n h a g e n C e n t r a l S c h o o l Senior Graduation 2010 Graduating Senior and Class Salutatorian Kayla Nicole McNamara welcomed attendees for the 2010 commencement exercises held at Copenhagen Central School on Sunday, June 27, 2010.

Principally Speaking Would You Like to Host an Exchange Student? We have information from CCI (Center for Cultural Interchange) for families who would like to open their homes to an exchange student. This is the same organization that has placed students in our district for the past few years. Students come from Spain, Hong Kong, Norway, Colombia, Japan among many other global countries and cities. If you are interested, contact Nancy Sandersen at 222.6042 or email@example.com. For more information about CCI please go to their website h t t p : / / w w w . c c i exchange.com/usprograms_home.aspx Have a relaxing, safe summer! See you in September! Physical Activity in the Warm Summer Months Some tips from Cornell Cooperative Extension for staying safe and healthy while being active outdoors: Warm up before any activity including stretching. Drink plenty of fluids. Water is best. Pay attention to your body. Take it slow and rest when you need to. Try to schedule more rigorous activity for earlier in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are more tolerable. Dress appropriately. A hat protects your face and eyes from sun. Light colors help keep you cool. Sunscreen protects you skin. Physical activity is essential in maintaining your good health. Get active while being aware of how to do so safely. Congratulation, CCS Students! Warmest wishes and heartfelt congratulations go out to all of our CCS graduates this year. Pre-K, Kindergarten, Eighth Grade and, of course, the Class of 2010. To the seniors: as you take this next step into your future, remember the firm foundation you still have underneath you—the education you gained right here in Copenhagen. Best of luck now and always. Congratulations, Cassandra Colton! The Lewis County Hospital’s Women’s Auxiliary recently ranked a piece of artwork created by Cassandra Colton as first place in a competition. As the winner, she received a monetary award in addition to the honor of having her work on display at the Lewis County General Hospital. Next time you are there, look for it and be proud of the talent that Copenhagen Central School has to offer our community. Great job, Cassandra! Student Parking for 2010-2011 Please take note. Next year there will be no student parking at school. This means that students will not be able to drive to school. The reason is that we will lose one entire parking lot during the building project. Page 7 C o p e n h a g e n A Message from the Board of Education Dear District Residents, The Copenhagen Champion of Character Award will honor two students each quarter. The Copenhagen Inspiring Excellence Award will recognize one teacher/staff person each quarter. We are pleased to announce that the Copenhagen Champion of Character Award winners for the fourth quarter are Dylan Lago and Connor Berrus. Dylan is in the third grade and Connor is in the 10th grade. Copenhagen Champion of Character Student Award Copenhagen Champion of Character Student Award Connor Berrus Dylan Lago The Community/staff member that nominated Dylan stated: Dylan is a student with special needs. He is well known throughout the building and always offers a friendly “Hi, how are you?” Dylan is a joy and he always puts a smile on your face when you see him. Dylan has made a lot of progress this year at school. We are so proud of you Dylan! The Community/staff member that nominated Connor stated: Connor has always demonstrated a Champion of Character attitude toward classmates and all his teachers. He can definitely put a smile on a person’s face if they are feeling upset and he always offers a shoulder to lean on if an individual needs support. This student demonstrates a Champion of Character because he is constantly helping a person out in a subject they struggle with. He always gives to someone who needs a certain school supply, such as a piece of paper or a pen. This student is also respectful to those outside school. He volunteers wherever he can. He is such a good kid and is always trustworthy, respectful, caring, fair and is very much a good citizen. Copenhagen Inspiring Excellence Award The Community/staff member that nominated Mrs. Carlson stated: I think there are plenty of teachers or staff that deserve this C e n t r a l S c h o o l award here at Copenhagen. One in particular is Mrs. Carlson. I think she goes far beyond her role as a teacher. Her compassion toward the students and her love for teaching shines through. She not only is an elementary teacher but has a love for the older students in middle and high school also. My daughter and my niece were both student aides in her classroom and she always went that extra mile with them and instilled a friendship that is everlasting. They both look up to her as a mentor and as a person who always encouraged them to give everything 100% and to do their best and they would be rewarded in life some how or some way. I have worked at school in the past and also had a son who had her as a teacher and what she did for him and other students goes far beyond the duties of a teacher. Mrs. Carlson would take her own lunch period and use that time to help those students who would need extra help. Mrs. Carlson has a caring heart and makes learning fun. I think she shows a lot of leadership qualities and is a wonderful role model for our children. Mrs. Carolyn Carlson Page 8 C o p e n h a g e n C e n t r a l S c h o o l Page 9 C o p e n h a g e n C e n t r a l S c h o o l The Classroom Connection Universal Pre-K Mrs. Combs, Mrs. Sullivan &Ms. Farney The end of the year can be so bittersweet: goodbyes are inevitable and we teachers have learned to care for and encourage these preschoolers to do their best. Yet we also feel proud that this special group of children is ready to move onto the new challenges and joys of Kindergarten. We rounded out the school year with a lot of fun, so much fun, in fact, the children did not even realize the learning that was taking place. We kicked off June with a farm theme: painting cows, crafting tissue pigs, playing with tractors and lots of barnyard animals. Mr. Matt Greene from Cornell Cooperative Extension paid us a visit with his special “friend” Clover the cow, that the children were able to milk. During the second week, we visited the Kindergarten classrooms. Mrs. Graves’ and Mrs. Scholler’s students shared with us their favorite part of Kindergarten. The little preschoolers travelled down to the big cafeteria for breakfast that week and learned how to choose their own foods and walk through the line. The third week was all about dads, and one very popular pastime, fishing. The children tried Gyotaku (Japanese art of fish printing), practiced casting, dressed up in waders, vests and hats, played with tackle (minus hooks of course) and experimented with bobbers and lures in the water table (oh, and real minnows and crayfish too! J). They crafted a very special sailboat for their fathers who joined us for ice cream floats and a presentation by Captain Bill Saiff II of PBS’ Rod & Reel fame. The children tried to put all their favorite memories together by crafting a mini photo album to take home. For our end of the year program, they sang their ABCs and 1,2 Buckle My Shoe, the popular weather song S-U-N-N-Y, and acted out one of their favorite stories from the year - Chicka Chicka Boom Boom -- for their family and friends. All the families contributed for a wonderful picnic following the ceremony and then it was “Goodbye UPK, Hello Kindergarten!” Miss Amy, Miss Heather and Miss Kristy want to thank all the children, their families, and the staff at CCS for another successful preschool year. We look forward to seeing fresh little faces in September!

It was a great year and we wish everyone the best of luck next year in fifth grade. We ended our school year with a field trip to Stone Mills. The “Farmer Boy Days” program was very interesting. The students had a great time pretending to be farm children during the 1860s. They even attended a one room schoolhouse for a few minutes. They pumped water from a well, ground corn to feed chickens, kneaded bread dough, played with old-fashioned instruments and toys, took rides on wagons pulled by oxen and horses and many more activities from days gone by. We would like to thank our chaperones Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Widrick, Mrs. Rivers, and Mrs. Muncy for their help. Here is our supply list for the new fourth graders this September.

The sessions will run from between 6:00 p.m.—7:30 p.m. every Sunday.

There is no cost to participate. Each player must bring a drink, a soccer ball, appropriate footwear and shin guards. We will start off each night working on ball handling/control for about an hour and then work in some small sided games. Most of the foot skills used will come from the Coever coaching methods.

Page 20 C o p e n h a g e n C e n t r a l S c h o o l News from John Cain, Athletic Coordinator I have been watching all of the staff and teachers pack up their classrooms and get their rooms and areas clean for summer, yet on the fields behind the school Mr. McGraw and his staff have laid down our soccer fields and the goals are ready to go. Despite the fact that practice will not begin until the end of August for fall sports, many of our student-athletes have already been very busy getting ready, keeping our fields constantly busy with practices and games for the various summer leagues we have going on. The fields will remain busy up until the start of the season, and the action inside is starting to pick up as the basketball teams get ready for their summer leagues and camps. The fall schedule has al- ready been posted on www.viewmyschedule.com and it will be posted on the athletics website soon. Dates worth noting are as follows: 8/18/10 Fall Sports Parents Meeting 7:00 PM in the Band Room 8/23/10 First day of Fall Practices for JV and Varsity Teams 9/7/10 First day of practice for Modified Teams 10/4-10/9/10 WEEK PINK All student-athletes must have a physical before they may begin practice. Most student-athletes had one the last month of school. In addition, all forms must be turned in within 30 days of the start of the season. These forms are the physical recertification form and the athletics contract. These forms will be mailed home for fall athletes and should be returned to the main office of the school PRIOR to the first day of practice. Student athletes who have done this will receive their white card which must be given to their head coach before they are eligible to practice. No player may participate in any part of practice until they have handed their coach their white card. Any student who plans on playing a fall sport and did not receive a physical in the spring should contact the school nurse as soon as possible. Have a safe summer! Spring Sports Wrap Up Varsity Softball Coach John Cain 2010 was a rough year for the Lady Golden Knights. The team never did seem to find its’ groove, but it did display a lot of tenacity and heart. The team finished with a 6-13 overall record, and a 5-9 league mark. This put the team in a 4th place tie with Sackets Harbor in the league. The team missed the playoffs by virtue of the tie-breaker rule which went to head-to-head games, and Copenhagen was 0-2 against Sackets this season. The team was eligible for sectional play and lost in the opening round by a score of 7-1 to a Hamilton that didn’t lose in sectional play until they made it to the Section III Championship game. Despite the record, the team played in a lot of close games, but just couldn’t seem to find any good luck when they needed it. The team was able to sweep their season series against Lyme, and in one of the games saw Brianne Spaulding get her first of what we hope to be many varsity softball wins. The team also swept the eventual playoff champion Alex Bay, including an extra inning nail biter on the road. In addition, Copenhagen was the only D Division school to win a crossover game against a C Division school when we beat Beaver River in the bottom of the 7th inning by a score of 3-2 at home. We were very competitive in the South Jefferson Tournament, a sunny Saturday that saw us lose to Class B Section III Champion South Jefferson by a score of 9-4. The Lady Knights then dropped a heartbreaker to Class C Phoenix in the consolation game. The team also competed in Mudville for the first time, playing in the Emma Durant Memorial Tournament. The team opened play with a solid win over Class C East Rochester before falling to Mayfield, another Class C school from section 2, in the finals. Overall the Lady Knights played three teams that made their sectional championship games this year, including 2 Section II Champi- ons. Offensively the team was led by senior captain Sarah Jolliff who had a team best .339 batting average and 21 hits. She was followed by Rachel Muncy at .322 and Morgan Kiernan at .316. Freshman Rachel Muncy led the team in RBI with 13, slugging percentage with a .458 and total bases at 27. Danielle Eisel led the team in runs scored at 14, and stolen bases with 11 swipes. Sarah Jolliff notched 118 innings pitched, accounting for all but 6 innings all season. She finished with a record of 5-13, but only gave up 52 earned runs for an ERA of 3.08. She also walked less than two hitters per game and totaled 73 strikeouts on the season. Defensively the team was led by Taylor Church who made only 4 errors in 126 opportunities. Despite saying goodbye to two key seniors, the team will have a strong core of returning starters (Continued on page 21) Volume 1 , I s s u e 1 Page 21 Spring Sports Wrap Up. . .continued (Continued from page 20) next year, and will be adding several players who got considerable playing time and experience this season at the JV level. This year’s varsity team included: Sarah Jolliff Senior Emily Lance Senior Taylor Church Junior Danielle Eisel Junior Morgan Kiernan Junior Taylor Doner Junior Bethany Deveines Junior Jillian Riccio Junior Katrina Freeman Junior Autumn Moser Sophomore Alexandra LaBarge Sophomore Rachel Muncy Freshman Sarah Jolliff, Danielle Eisel, and Morgan Kiernan were all named Frontier League All-Stars. Rachel Muncy and Bethany Deveines were both selected as Frontier League Honorable Mention. The team was also honored as a NYSPHSAA Scholar Team. Renee Eisel deserves a big thank you for keeping our books and assisting as a base coach. Her input is invaluable and it is always nice to have somebody who knows the game to discuss strategy with during the season. We also appreciate the hard work of John McGraw, Dale Clarke and Ron Trainham for keeping our fields playable. Modified Girls Softball Coach Cathy Snyder The Modified Girls Softball team ended their season 9-3. This year’s squad had a sensational season full of huge improvements, teamwork and incredible sportsmanship. I was very impressed with the level of play, the leadership these young ladies conducted themselves with (on and off the field) and their willingness to learn with such enthusiasm. We became a competitive team exhibiting aggressive base running and rallying as a team throughout every game. I would like to extend a very special thank you to Nicole Henry for being a wonderful volunteer assistant coach and comrade to the team. Her work ethic and knowledge of the game made her an incredible asset to the team. Also, we would not have had the success we did without our managers Emma Roberts, Sydney Greene and Kylie Tomaselli. These girls helped fill-in during warm-ups and practice wherever a partner was needed in addition to their managing responsibilities. Last but not least, thank you so much to all of the parents and spectators for helping out with the team coaching bases, supplying food, scorekeeping and most of all supporting these fine young ladies. Nikki Burns Summer Freeman Nicole Gardner Emily Griffin Karlee Herzig Sam Kallen Shania Lehman Justine Malbouf Breanna Muncy Brooke Spaulding Ashley Willits Morgan Young Managers Kylie Tomaselli Sydney Greene Emma Roberts (captain), Melissa Baker (captain), Cassidy O’Donnell, Rachel Griffin, Alicia Evans, Cierra Dicob, Liz Martin, Logan Wheeler, Erika Eddy, Brittany Tanner. Modified Boys Baseball Coach Scott Randall The Modified Boys’ Baseball team ended their 2010 season with a record of 4-6-1. The boys worked hard and improved all season long. Offensive leaders included Andy Freeman with a batting average of .408. Others included Antonio Figueroa (.393), Cory Moser (.387), and Greg Kunert (.351). Travis Clarke added the team’s only homerun of the season with a shot that helped lead the Knights over IHC. Pitchers Brandon Moser, Nate Freeman, and Greg Pelan all recorded wins throughout the season. This year’s roster also included the following players: Dallas Church Garrett Munden Tristan Myers Josh Snyder Sam Williams Junior Varsity Softball Coach Tamie Stephenson The JV Girls Softball Team had a successful season. They found out that hard work can pay off! The team played extremely tough against the larger opponents they faced. The team’s overall record ended up 10-9. All the fans saw the improvements the ladies made throughout the season. I would like to thank Bruce Evans for all of his help throughout the season. You put in a lot of time. I would also like to thank Lori Griffin and Luke Evans for keeping score. Lastly, thanks to our parents and fans for their support this season. Members of the team included: Brianne Spaulding (captain), Taylor Murtha Kevin Carroll Special thanks go out to Ken Clarke, Sue Parker, and managers Caleb Moser and Brandon Moser. Thank you to all the parents who supported the team throughout the season.

Varsity Baseball—2010, Coach Jim Spaulding The 2010 Varsity Baseball Team finished an incredible season with a 20-3 overall record. During that run they won the League Championship finishing with a 13-1 league record. The team then captured the Playoff Championship by defeating Lyme 15-0 in the first round game and then beating Belleville-Henderson 13-2 in the championship game at the Watertown Fairgrounds. The team continued its winning ways by winning the next four rounds in sectional play to earn being crowned as the Section III Class D Champions. The team then entered State play against Section IV champions, Hancock, in which they would defeat 6 to 1 to win the Central Region Championship. Next up for the Knights, the State Final IV Championship in Binghamton, New York. The team lost in the State semi finals to Bolivar-Richburg and finished its season with a final ranking of 3rd overall amongst “D” class schools in the State. Although the team fell just short of its goal of a State Title, their accomplishments over the season reflect great credit to them, Copenhagen Central School and our community. The team put up some impressive offensive numbers, one which included 62 extra base hits over the season, fifteen of those being homeruns. Jake Spaulding led the team in hits with 36 while Chris Kellogg, David Hovendon and John Hanchek followed with 35, 30 and 29 respectively. Chris Kellogg slugged out a team best 13 extra base hits and 32 RBI’s while finishing with a team high .493 batting average. John Hanchek (.453) and Jake Spaulding (.434) rounded out the leaders for batting average. Blake LaBarge led the Club in home runs with five while batting .383 on the year. Ryan Fitzpatrick finished with ten extra base hits including four home runs and a final batting average of .312. Dave Hovendon (.375) and Josh Spaulding (.295) each finished the season with a team best 14 stolen bases. Alex Moser (.255) set the schools single season walk record tallying 23-base on balls over the year. Derek Moser finished the season with 12 hits and 14 walks and a final average of .214 at the plate. Chad Tessier (.133) made the most of his at bats driving in a total of 9 RBI’s on the season. Chad was responsible for driving in all 3-runs during our only league loss to rival Sackets Harbor. During a four game Volume 1 , I s s u e 1 Page 23 stretch of the season, Collin Hess was asked to play up and he contributed many valuable innings towards the team’s success. Collin would later be added to the varsity roster for the playoff run. The pitching rotation was made up of the following players; Chris Kellogg, Dave Hovendon, Alex Moser and Jake Spaulding. Chris finished with a 10-2 record throwing 72 innings and finishing with a stingy 1.94 ERA. Dave threw 58 innings finishing with a 7—0 record and an ERA of only 1.34. Alex finished with a 3—1 record while Jake only threw 5innings but they were all valuable innings so we could rest the other’s arms. Defensively the team was anchored by all nine position players as everyone played spectacular throughout the year. Chris Kellogg, Blake LaBarge, David Hovendon, Jake Spaulding and John Hanchek were all named to the Frontier League all-star team for their accomplishments. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Spaulding were named to the Honorable Mention Team. Adam Aubin was also named All-Star for his hard work and dedication on the year. The following players will be lost to graduation this year; Ryan Fitzpatrick, John Hanchek, David Hovendon, Blake LaBarge and Chris Kellogg. They will certainly be missed as their career stats indicate.
