Copenhagen Central School December, 2013 Newsletter

From the Desk of the Superintendent Dear District Residents: I’d like to share with you a few pieces of news about our district. School Safety

PTO News

14

The safety committee meets throughout the year and looks at our safety plan and ways we can improve. Each time something violent happens at a school or place of public congregation in our nation we learn of ways to change what we do to keep our children safe. Having said that, beginning this month we will be extending our locked campus policy to 7:00 a.m. Prior to this the school was only locked between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. All doors were opened at 7:00 a.m. with no supervision in the building. We will now have only the front entrance doors open at 7:00 a.m. and we will have a greeter in the main hall.

An exception to

the policy discussed above will be any functions in our cafeteria during schools hours, Senior Citizens luncheons, Parent/Grandparent luncheons, etc. For these events we ask that you park in the back parking lot of the school and enter the building through the cafeteria doors. There will be a staff member there to greet you. Winter School Closings It won’t be long before the snow and cold will be upon us. Again this year we will be using multiple methods of communicating any closings or delays to you. You can access this information from WWNY-TV Channel 7, WWTI-TV Channel 50, all area radio stations, and our automated phone system, School Messenger. We will also post this on our website and Facebook page. As you know, the North Country/Tug Hill weather is extremely unpredictable, and we will always put the safety of

your children first. We will also attempt to make these decisions as early as possible to allow you time to plan. Special Congratulations Congratulations go out to Ms. Gleason, the cast, and everyone involved in the production of the musical, “The Wizard of Oz”. I hope everyone got out to see this outstanding show. It’s just another example of the hard working and talented students we have at CCS. Thank you for your continued support of our district and our students. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season. Sincerely,

Scott N. Connell Superintendent

Ideas for Parents

Copenhagen Central School

C. Moser

According to an article in the “Connecting Lewis County” newsletter, parents who give young people meaningful roles help children feel like an important resource. This is an important asset for your child to grow up healthy. Ways to develop this empowering asset include:  Ask your child to teach you something  Ask your child’s input on a family decision  Give your child an important role in the family M. Thomas

BOCES Names “Students of the Quarter” Howard G. Sackett and Bohlen Technical Centers have named their “Students of the Quarter.” Each instructor is allowed to select one student who has exhibited “outstanding qualities” in their program. This quarter Kristen Fleming was selected for her outstanding achievement in the development of professional skills. Cheyenne Rose was chosen for her great effort and for always being positive and attentive in Cosmetology. Congratulations, Kristen and Cheyenne!

Volume 51, Issue 4 Dear Parents/Guardians and Copenhagen Community, 

This month I wanted to take some time to familiarize you with the range of programs in the district designed to assist students with social/emotional issues. Many are already aware of the counseling services provided by Mrs. Gillette, Mrs. Petersen and myself as well as the Student Assistance Program from Mountain View Prevention Services supervised by Sheryl Hutton. Some are also aware of the Social Work Services provided by BOCES staff member Melissa Rookman. However, there are a few other programs that are available to our students that are somewhat lesser known as well as a couple others that we expect to be coming soon. Transitional Living Service In collaboration with Lewis County, Transitional Living Services is currently providing school based mental health services here on Thursdays by Joanna Daily. These services are provided to anyone with mental health needs and designed for those that may have difficulties accessing community based services either due to difficulties getting access to services or transportation difficulties. For referral information parents are encouraged to contact Mrs. Gillette or myself. Primary Project Primary Project is a school-based prevention program using expressive play. Research has shown that this program helps K-3 grade students adjust to school, gain confidence and focus on learning. Our Child Associate, Christina Petersen, provides weekly support and encouragement to students in an effort to help them become more successful learners. Currently this program exists in over 2,000 schools across the country and is supported by a grant. Children are selected for participation in the program through a variety of methods. Teachers will be completing a universal screening measure to help identify students that are showing signs of difficulty in the classroom or with dealing with a myriad of life-stressors. Screening tools are not perfect and students can also be referred to the program by parents, teachers or other school staff. Parental consent is required to participate. Youth Advocate Program Sheryl Hutton and Mountain View Prevention Services also provide our elementary students with a Youth Advocate program. This program assists students with any number of school related difficulties including attention and behavioral difficulties, academic difficulties and difficulties coping with various life stressors. Services are provided on Tuesdays in 30 minute individual sessions as well as through parent communications. This grant based program will run through January 1st pending the renewal of our grant. Fort Drum Military Family Life Consultant The MFLC program has been available to the three largest local school districts for quite some time and will be coming to Copenhagen on Thursdays and Fridays very soon. This program is designed to assist students and families with the various stressors that come with Military living. The MFLC consultant will work with both military and nonmilitary students both individually and in small groups on a variety of topics. Interested individuals are encouraged to contact Mrs. Gillette or myself. Northern Regional Center for Independent Living Home School Coordinator NRCIL has long been associated with assisting families of students with disabilities with the various difficulties that accompany their child’s individual needs. Recently they have committed to hiring a Home School Coordinator to assist students, parents and the school in communicating needed information and community program availabilities. Stay tuned as this person should begin working here in the very near future. If you have any questions, please contact me at 688-4411 or at dmunn@ccsknights.org. Sincerely, 

Dale Munn, Jr., Director of Student Services

The Classroom Connection Universal Pre-K Mrs. Rarick and Mrs. Virkler In November the children learned about the meaning of Thanksgiving. They learned who was present at the first Thanksgiving (Native Americans and Pilgrims) and learned a bit about how they lived. We made many fun crafts such as shape turkeys, Indian corn, and Thanksgiving hats. Pre-k boys and girls were also able to tell us what they are thankful for. We had some wonderful class discussions about that! In December, we will make ornaments and decorate our class tree. We are very excited to read books about Christmas, make many crafts, and sing Christmas songs! We plan to make the entire month of December very festive! Pre-k children have been learning to rhyme, to count up to ten objects, to cut with scissors, and to recognize numerals 0-10. They’ve been putting together name puzzles and are mostly able to recognize the letters in their own names. We’ve been working on having the children put on their own outerwear independently. They’ve been doing a great job, so please encourage this at home! Have a wonderful holiday season! Pre-K Favorite Apple Muffins cooking spray 3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda 3 cups apples - peeled, cored, and chopped 1 cup vegetable oil 2 cups white sugar 3 eggs, beaten 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon Directions Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Prepare 2 muffin tins or 2 loaf pans (8 1/2x4 1/2-inch loaf pans) with cooking spray. Mix flour, baking soda, and apples in a large bowl. Whisk oil, sugar, eggs, and cinnamon together in a small bowl; add to flour mixture and mix until just moistened. Evenly divide mixture between prepared loaf pans. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 90 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack. Substitutions: Cut sugar in half, add one cup of applesauce in place of vegetable oil. Kindergarten Mrs. Scholler and Ms. Houppert It was very nice to see so many of you at the Parent Teacher Conferences last month. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We are off to a great start with the Book It! Program.

Please remember to return your child’s reading list at the end of the month. We are still in the first math module. We have spent much time working on hidden partners (the two numbers used to make a whole number), number formation, beginning addition and word problems. In addition, we are working on counting aloud to 50 in the classroom and recognizing groups of objects from 1 to 10. In ELA, we have started out third skills module, which consists of letter formation. We have just completed our Stories and Folktales Unit. We will spend some time working on this skill. In addition, please continue to work on buttoning, zipping and shoe tying to help prepare for arrival, recess and dismissal. We will be having a classroom Christmas Party on the last day of school before Christmas Vacation, December 20. We would like it if students can please bring in the same items for each of the other children in their class. It can be a pencil for each friend; an eraser; a homemade bookmark, or ornament for each friend; a small plastic animal; a pack of gum or candy canes for each friend, etc… For

The Classroom Connection…………...continued example, one child brought in a bulk package of toy telescopes, one for each friend. ***Many homemade items can be made in quantities or other gift items can be bought in bulk packages at stores like Big Lots or Dollar Tree which can make this way of gift-giving less expensive and also equal. The letters for the month of December are Ww (continued), Tt and Ee. The sight words for the month are white, a, the, and to and I. Please continue to read books daily and ask your child to point out vocabulary words in the text. We will be having a craft day in the first week or two of December. We will send home more information as soon as we solidify plans. The plan is to have one adult per student, Mom or Dad or Grandparent. We will spend the morning making crafts. Listening to Christmas music and enjoying a snack together. Please look for details for our annual tree farm visit. 1st Grade Mrs. Hefferon and Ms. Strianese December is our craft month. Parents are invited to come into the first grade classrooms on Friday, December 13 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. to help the children make Christmas crafts. More information will be coming home with the children.

Please keep practicing the sight words. With more words coming home each week it is important that your child does not fall behind. It is also a good time to start reviewing addition facts to ten. With the new Common Core Standards the children are supposed to be fluent with addition facts to 20 by the end of first grade. Please make sure your child has a warm jacket, snow pants, hat and gloves. They will be going outside every day that the wind chill is above 0. 2nd Grade Mrs. Reed and Mrs. B. Zehr We are working on our 2 Math Module from the Core Curriculum. It is called Addition and Subtraction of Length Units (Measurement). Look for homework assignments. We will use the metric system and not the U.S. standard system for measurement. As always, look over the Friday work folder. If you do this each week, you will get a good idea of how your child is doing in second grade. The winter months are a good time to read together as a family. It also helps our students learn to enjoy books and getting their free pizza from Pizza Hut is an added bonus. Any reading at home with our students is greatly appreciated. nd

Our 2nd grades will be taking a trip to Syracuse on December 5th to see the Nutcracker Ballet. More information will be provided when we have the details. Our Christmas party will be held on Friday, December 20th. More information will be sent home at a later time. In the spirit of giving, we will be collecting canned goods for the local food pantry. Please be generous and send in as many canned goods as you can spare. We will be collecting the food items during most of December. Looking Ahead to January: Flat Stanley………Get ready for Flat Stanley! We will be reading Flat Stanley in January and he should be ready to travel by February. Every student will make a Flat Stanley and mail him to a family member or friend that is willing to take him places. Please send Stanley to a person that you think will be willing to take the time to take pictures and send them back for all to enjoy. Once all the Stanleys are back, they will be put up on the large bulletin board in the elementary wing for all to enjoy.

The Classroom Connection. . . . . continued 3rd Grade Mrs. Ratliff/ Mrs. Farney and Mrs. Muncy Happy Holidays from third grade! With the holidays upon us, third graders are learning about how people from communities around the world celebrate Christmas. They are working towards creating PowerPoints, reading picture books, and making crafts from 14 different countries. We are also hoping to have a guest come in and speak about Christmas in Denmark! In math, students are working on time and measurement. This is a great hands-on module as students time themselves doing various activities, and weigh and measure a variety of materials. Christmas parties will be held on Friday, December 20th. Information has been sent home regarding our gift exchange, and reminders for those who signed up for refreshments will be sent home as the party date approaches. As always, keep watch of our classroom websites, as they provide a wealth of information on classroom activities, common core vocabulary, and fun links to practice spelling, vocabulary and math skills! (These will keep students’ skills sharp over the long winter break!)

4th Grade Mrs. McCabe and Ms. Burns Thank you to all the parents that made treats for our bake sale. Our classes made $150.00 dollars. That money will be used by the library to buy RIF books for the children to keep. A special thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Bogert and Mrs. Souva for their help selling the treats during lunch. Last month the Jefferson County Historical Society visited our classroom. Mrs. Melissa Widrick came to our classes and talked about the Native Americans that lived in this area long ago. She brought in items used by the people of the Iroquois Confederacy. The students enjoyed the artifacts such as spearheads and arrowheads that were found in this area. She also showed the students reproductions of dolls, baskets and instruments the Indians would have used. We are well into the new marking period. Parent conferences were very helpful, especially with the new report card. This report card is very similar to last year’s and it tells us exactly how the student is progressing. With the new state tests being such a big part of our education program, it is important for parents to know their child’s averages in all areas. In science, we are discovering more about our Solar Sys-

tem. We have been studying the planets, our moon, the sun and how our earth is connected to other objects in the sky. Ask your child if shooting stars really exist. We learned some amazing facts. As we continue to move through our math units, we would like to ask parents to practice math facts (multiplying and dividing) with their children. The basic fact families should be at a student’s fingertips when we start multiplying and dividing greater numbers. With Christmas right around the corner we will be sending home a letter to explain our Christmas gift exchange and other Christmas activities. It will be sent out the first week of December.

Module Minutes from Mrs. Farney and Mrs. Ratliff It is of the utmost importance to CCS teachers and administrators to include parents, families, and the community in the changes taking place in the education of students. To that end, we established our school’s first annual Parent Information Night/Module Expo (see photos below). It was held on Tuesday, November 19 from 6-7:30, and it was a terrific success! We had a substantial turnout of parents and families, which enabled a productive, thoughtful, engaging, and informative conversation among parents, teachers, and administrators. Teachers were represented from kindergarten through middle school English and high school Math, and they provided sample materials and lessons at their individual tables that exhibited how the Common Core Learning Standards are being met. A few of the exhibits included: a handson learning demonstration in dividing decimals, explanations of tape diagrams, sample rekenreks (similar to an abacus), a library of Grade 3 texts to browse, practice with number bonds, Grade 1 “Human Body” module

extension activities, and sample student reader and workbooks in Grade 2. If you weren’t able to attend the Expo, some highlights from the conversation are: The Common Core Learning Standards, the teacher evaluation system (APPR), and Data-Driven Instruction are part of the Reform Agenda which provided money to districts such as Copenhagen that aligned to these criteria in an effort to increase student achievement. There are 6 Shifts in both ELA/Literacy and Math instruction. Shifts refer to new ways of teaching and learning. To learn more about the shifts in ELA and Math, visit our CCS Common Core and More webpage at http://commoncore.ccsknights.schoolfusion.us/ modules/groups/ integrated_home.phtml?gid=4019839 . Parents helping students with homework is not expected, and some teachers suggest to not help. This is to provide students the opportunity to problem-solve independently, to feel a minimal amount of stress which will help deal with situations throughout life, and to avoid confusion regarding how and what is being taught. Helping with homework is a multi-generational concern, and the Common Core Learning Standards and the New York State Learning Modules are no different. Teachers were provided with ideas and suggestions from parents on the importance of incorporating their own creative, hands-on ideas to supplement the Common Core Learning Standards, and parents received ideas and suggestions to

help support the 6 Shifts in ELA/Literacy and Math at home.

News and Notes From the Music Department

Bi-County Band Members, left to right: Stephanie Aubin, Zachary Herbert, Tristan Cole and Ashley Young

Bi-County News Several students in both band and chorus participated in the Fall Bi-County Festival in early November.

PTO News Wow! Thanks everyone for a fun Fall Festival. We had many wonderful volunteers and would like to thank Andrea Simmons and Copenhagen Carvers, Brittany Denesha-Jackson and DBK for their generous donations of prizes for the Freaky Finger Food contest. If you didn't get a chance to see the freaky creations, trust me, they were FREAKY! Another thanks to Nikki MacDonald Photography for taking photos of our Mummy Mommies and families. We have so much creativity in our community! Be sure and check out the pictures on the Copenhagen PTO facebook page. While you're there, go ahead and like our page so you can get updates on all our events. Once again, we had a great time bowling at Lewis Lanes. The owners are so generous. Our CCS families have some mad skills! Future pro bowlers in the mix? Thanks to Ashley Lee for organizing and planning this event. Where can you find pictures of this event? The Copenhagen PTO facebook page! Our annual Frozen Pie fundraiser was quite successful. The top selling class was the 1st Grade and our top sellers were Gavin Parker, 3rd Grade, Courtney Johnston, 4th Grade and Julia Richardson, 1st Grade. We know that there a lot of fundraisers in our community and not everyone wants a frozen pie. We are deeply grateful for the support of the CCS community as we continue to help our school, teachers and students. Already this year we have been able to provide a portion of the meal at Back to School night, fund a field trip for 2nd graders to Windy Hollow Farm, provide funds for supplies for module implementation

(including 80 ELA modules and 35 math modules!), provide dinner for the cast of the Wizard of Oz during dress rehearsal, provide a meal for teachers during Parent/Teacher conference, give the faculty room a little face-lift, donate canned goods to the YAC backpack program, and will be funding a field trip for 2nd and 3rd graders to the Nutcracker Ballet, the annual Kindergarten field trip to the Christmas Tree Farm, buses for the Spanish and Art club students to attend an Art Show as well as a Spanish show at Syracuse Stage, buses for a K-5 field trip to Maple Ridge Snow Park and purchasing a video camera for the college level Video Productions class. We could not do any of this without your support. Our community is the heart of our PTO! Evening with Santa is coming right up on Friday, December 13 from 6 pm - 8 pm. We are currently accepting donations for our popular Copenhagen Community raffle basket. If you would like your business to be represented in the basket or if your business would like to donate its own basket, we would love to accommodate you. We are also taking reservations for vendor tables for the holiday gift shop. Students are able to purchase inexpensive gifts for their family and friends in the holiday shop. We will be accepting baked good donations for the cake wheel on the night of Evening with Santa. For any Evening with Santa related questions, please contact Liz Harding at copenhagenmom@hotmail.com or Beckie Scholler at bscholler@ccsknights.org. A final thought, with all of the changes occurring in education

right now, our teachers have been working very hard, many spending hours beyond the school day to prepare to teach our children. If you get a chance, send a thank you note or an email to your child's teacher letting them know how much you appreciate what they do for your child. Sometimes a little thanks goes a long way on a stressful day. :-) * The next Community Book Group book is Free Range Kids, by Lenore Skenazy. We will be skipping the busy month of December but will meet again on Thursday, January 16 at 6 pm in the library. * We are still getting together on Tuesday mornings at 8 am to help teachers with prep work. We meet in the faculty room and appreciate any amount of time you can give. *Date Change: Our regularly scheduled PTO meeting for December has been moved to November 26 at 6 pm. We will focus mainly on planning and preparing for Evening with Santa. Anytime you have questions or would like to know more about the PTO or offer suggestions, feel free to contact any of our officers or email copenhagenpto@gmail.com.

Holiday Traditions Strengthen Family Ties, Sheryl Hutton, Student Assistance Counselor While holidays are often a time of joy and celebration, for many they can be a source of stress and anxiety. Expectations about what should happen around the holidays can collide with the reality of what actually does happen, causing disappointment, anger, and sadness. The holidays are the perfect time to develop your family rituals so that traditions are remembered by all family members with fondness and alleviate some stress. More importantly, children learn from family traditions. Traditions help reinforce family values and beliefs. For those in a divorce and step situation, realize that movement between homes is a part of life, especially during the holidays.

If this is your situation, let your children know that the good news about a holiday is that your kids get to celebrate with more people in their life, though it may seem like they get less time to spend with their core family. Holidays typically represent a time for forgiveness and new beginnings especially for divorce and stepfamilies. Get close and create a loving atmosphere. Bake pies and cookies, or share eggnog and popcorn by the fire. Shut off the T.V and Phones.

Page 15

The following are examples of how to stimulate discussion: 

What is special about our family?



What’s a favorite family memory?



What do you enjoy most about the holidays, and what you do not like about them?



What are your favorite holiday foods and why?

Tradition does not draw its power from a price tag, but from the sense of continuity. As you prepare for the holidays, engage in conversations that will connect family members.

A Big Huge Thank You to Emily Griffin and Ashley Crandall for the great job they did on the new mural located across from the library. The two girls worked on it every day for about 3 weeks and did a wonderful job painting, as well as selecting excellent pieces of literature for their "Tree of Books". Be sure to take a closer look next time you are in the school building.

STUDENT VOICE – ARTICLE STUDENT VOICE – ARTICLE What’s wrong with our youth today? Maybe it’s how we as adults don’t seek the positive side of that question by asking, “What is right with youth today?” We often fail to see the great attributes of our youth because it can sometimes be hidden by an unhealthy emphasis on the negative. The community however, is blessed with youth serving in many capacities. Take for instance the Lewis County Youth Bureau Advisory

Board. The following youth serve as student representatives for their respective schools on this board: Serena Vargulick and Ryan Rubenzahl (Lowville Academy), Gaelyn Bronson and Nathan DeSantis (South Lewis Central), Christian Hamilton and Antonio Figueroa (Copenhagen Central), Jesse Campbell (Harrisville Central), and Jake Ledoux (Beaver River Central). These students are selected by their schools and or

recommended by a student representative whose term of office is slated to end, and then appointed to the Lewis County Youth Advisory Board by the Board of Legislators. In their capacity, the student representatives provide a youth perspective, engage in discussions about issues facing our youth, conduct program monitoring, review funding applications, and ultimately make recommendations to fund future projects within (Continued on page 17)

our community. In addition, these student representatives assist with various activities throughout the year such as National Night Out and the Homeless Christmas Tree initiative. Without the input offered from these students, we would lose the voice of youth in our decision making. With that in mind, we all could benefit from hearing about what youth are struggling with today, or how they are contributing to our community, or just what is on their minds. That’s the intent behind “The Student

Voice”. The Student Voice is a weekly column that will be a collection of student-written literature that highlights real-world challenges facing our youth today. We will showcase essays, fictional stories, awareness projects, poems, or other variants of their choosing. Please check back weekly to delve into the minds of our youth. The column will begin December 2013 and will run throughout the school year. If you are a young person and would like to contribute to The Student Voice, we invite you to submit an article. Arti-

cles selected for publishing will credit the author and we would love to have a picture of the student to place with the column that will be in the Lowville Journal & Republican. The published articles will also be posted on the Youth Bureau website at www.lewiscountyny.org/youth and on the Journal & Republican Face Book Page. Anonymous articles are welcome as well. Please send submissions or general questions to the Youth Bureau at Penny.Demo@dfa.state.ny.us or

C.C.S. Golden Knights Fall Sports Wrap-up Modified Girls Soccer Coach Cathy Snyder The modified girl’s soccer team ended their season 3-3-5. With such a young and inexperienced squad the team worked very hard to improve their skills and knowledge. Several teams which we played against had ninth graders and we would play with only 11 or 12 players so we had to become stronger, more determined and have lots of heart. It was always an intense game with only allowing 5 goals during the season and scoring 6. Our team was very strong in the center with Danielle Thomas, Olivia Carroll , Hailey Tweedy and Katie Best. They not only were the leaders but also the core unit which had flexibility to play each other’s position when needed. Being her first year in the goal, Taylor Ridsdale did a phenomenal job with spectacular saves. Madison Freeman and Ashley Dunakin grew stronger as defenders and always looked to go offensively. Sophie Martin, Gabby Goutermout, Courtney Micek, Brooke Snyder, Alicia Berghorn and Emily Scholler, each became physically stronger in passing, creating combinations and just the understanding of the game. Thank you to our managers Abbi Carroll and Charli Carroll for all of your efforts at all of the games and practices. Your help in filling in for partners, chasing balls and putting up with all of us was stupendous.

Special thank you to Emily Sipher and Coach Jill Micek for all of the support at practices and games for without your help the team would not have grown to become the successful team it is. I have enjoyed this team tremendously; they are very good to each other with positive reinforcement and teaching each other the game of soccer. I will miss them all but I know that the future of Copenhagen soccer is still strong. Also thank you to all of the parents and fans. The players and I greatly appreciate you taking time to come to our games and supporting us. JV Girls Soccer Coach Natalie Scott The JV Girls Soccer Team had a learning season in 2013 adding many new faces to the squad. The girls had success even though they were young (4 sophomores, 8 freshman, and 2 eighth graders). The team’s overall record ended up 3-7. The team’s attitude was superb, their work ethic tremendous, and they found out that hard work can really pay off! There was only one team in our division this year, Sackets Harbor. We played three hard fought battles against them, that all ended up with a 1 point decision. All other games were played against bigger schools. The girls played a competitive game versus South Jefferson and came up a little short losing 2-1.

In crossover action, the girls played extremely tough against the larger opponents they faced. The girls also had a huge victory over Thousand Islands beating them 1-0. They also had great wins versus Sandy Creek, one of which included our “pink” game! The team saw that hard work can pay off! The girls showed much improvement this year in their trapping, moving with the ball, seeing the field, and communicating. Team play, the will to improve themselves, and a little pride and heart can take a team a long way! I’m very proud of you girls!!!!! Members of the team included sophomores, Laura Graves (captain), Olivia Morrow, Matilde Huerta-McDonald and Alexis Trainham. Ninth graders included Hope Woodruff (captain), Kylie Guyette (captain), Andrea Travis, Tiana Witham, Ashley Gardner, Cassandra Kunert, Katlyn Hayden and Hallie Freeman. Eight graders included Emily Frith and our goalkeeper, Kiersten Hancock. All showed improvement in their game and real heart! Thank you all girls!!!!!! First, I would like to thank Michelle Castor, our assistant coach, and Jillann Micek, our goalie coach. I would like to thank Madison Trainham, Carlos Huerta-McDonald, Lucas Graves and Josh Gardner for their much needed help being ball people. You all put in a lot of time and effort. We appreciate you!

Getting your children to and from practice and games was greatly appreciated!!! Seeing all of your positive support of our team helped us progress throughout the season. Thanks again!!! Varsity Boys’ Soccer 2013 Coach Scott Randall The Copenhagen Boys’ Varsity Soccer team finished their 2013 season with a record of 18-1. The boys had a notable season finishing 1st in the Frontier League regular season as well as 1st in the Frontier League Playoffs. The Golden Knights made it as far as 7th in the New York State Rankings. The team drew the 3rd seed in the Section 3 Tournament and won their First Round game against Madison with a score of 61. The Knights continued their winning ways in the Sectional Quarterfinals with a hard fought victory against a tough opponent in Blessed Virgin Mary. However the season ended with a semi-final loss to 2nd seeded IHC. Key wins came against league rival Alexandria in the first game of the season 3-1 and a 2-0 victory over “C” Division power Thousand Islands. The boys’ also crossed over to beat South Jefferson and perennial power Mt. Markham. The boys showed their resolve in the Mt. Markham game scoring in the final 10 seconds of regulation on a restart to win 1-0. The regular season was punctuated by beating

long time rival Lyme twice within one week to secure both the league and playoff championships. Team scoring was led by junior Frontier League All-Stars Brenden Jacobs (14 Goals, 15 Assists) and Antonio Figueroa (12 Goals, 14 Assists). Sophomore Connor Eddy, who added 10 Goals and 1 Assist was also named as Frontier League AllStar, and Senior Travis Clarke (3 Goals, 3 Assists) and junior Garrett Munden (6 goals) were named Honorable Mention. The Golden Knights outscored opponents 63-10 throughout the season. Our goal at the beginning of the season was to only allow 10 goals. All-Star sophomore goalkeepers Brandon Buckley and Robbie Groff, who split time in the goal throughout the season helped the team post 11 shutouts. Other notables on defense included Senior Greg Kunert (5 Goals, 4 Assists) and Junior Breven Jacobs (3 Goals, 5 Assists) receiving Frontier League AllStar. Other team members included: Sam Williams Josh Snyder (3 Goals) Kevin Carroll (1 Goal) Cory Moser (3 Goals) Caleb Hatch (1 Goal) Ian Sawyer (1 Assist) Cody Buckley (2 Goals, 1 Assist) This season’s successes can be attributed to the hard work and dedication that the boys put

into this past off-season. Time spent in the gym, in the weight room, and summer leagues really paid off for this group. I am proud of the way they played throughout the season and I look forward to working with the underclassmen in the future. Seniors Greg Kunert and Travis Clarke have left a positive legacy on the program and we sincerely appreciate their efforts. Thank you to assistant coaches Troy Buckley, Jill Micek, and Matt Hayden for your dedication and hard work. Another thank you goes out to managers Drew Witham, Joe Johnson, and Tanion Jacobs, and scorekeeper Ken Clarke. I would like to extend a special thank you to all parents and family members for your support throughout the season. Modified Boys Soccer Coach Gerald Snyder What a wonderful and amazing season! As a coach, you always hope that the boys will buy into what you are teaching them and expecting them to learn and do. This year’s team was very young with little or no experience about soccer. None of the seventh graders had any field or team experience. In the end, the boys put it all together and finished the season with 10 wins and only one loss. JD Uhlinger led the way with 10 goals; Dustin Snyder recorded 6 shutouts in the goal; and Zach Herbert recorded a perfect 5

As a coach, I was very pleased and proud of each and every soccer player on the team— the way they played, the good sportsmanship they displayed and the way they played team ball. A big thank you goes to Mr. Herbert, my District Volun-

teer Assistant, for a great job. It made my job a lot easier knowing that I could count on him. To all the parents and fans, you may not think much about it but your support means more to the soccer players and coaches than you will ever know.

Varsity Girls Soccer Coach Katherine Stackel Congratulations to the Varsity Girls’ Soccer Team on a very successful season finishing with an overall record of 18-1. The team captured first place in the Frontier League and won the D Division Tournament with wins over Alex Bay and Lyme. In sectional play, the girls defeated Stockbridge Valley 6-0 and Remsen 2-1 to advance to the Class D Section III Finals. The season ended with a 4-2 loss to Poland in the finals. The team was awarded the NYPHSAA Scholar Athlete Award for exceptional performance in the classroom. Over the course of the season, the team scored 104 total goals, allowed 16 goals, and recorded 9 shutouts in 19 games. All in all, it was a great season full of many memories. The following players were selected as Frontier League All-Stars: Emma Roberts, Claire Stackel, Brooke Spaulding, Christie Thomas, Lexie LaBarge, Morgan Moore, and Maci Spaulding. Alicia Evans was named Honorable Mention. Midfielders Emma Roberts and Claire Stackel were named as Section III Class D All–Stars. Claire Stackel was named the NSCAA/TDS National High School Player of the Week and chosen as the Watertown Savings Bank Athlete of the Week. The team would like to thank Logan Spaulding for serving as volunteer assistant throughout the season. Renee Eisel did a great job keeping score and supporting the team. Special thanks to our four managers: Brooke and Aubree Smykla and Meaghen and Alyssa Fitzpatrick. Good luck to senior Alicia Evans.
