Spring is in the Air!

Spring is in the air and hopefully we are heading into some warmer days. I actually heard birds chirping, so I know the good weather cannot be far behind.

Budget Update: On March 6, Assistant Superintendent for Management Services, Paul Pelton, presented the proposed 2019-2020 budget to the Board of Education. This visual presentation will be given again for the public on April 23 and May 8. For more details about all things budget, just click here to go to the budget section of our website.

West Genesee School Resource Officer is Honored: Our School Resource Officer, Anthony Gucciardi, has been named the 2018 Camillus Police Officer of the Year. He was selected because of his strong work ethic, and the consistent and professional service he provides to our school and community. We are lucky to have Officer Gucciardi with us here at West Genesee. We congratulate him on this well-deserved honor!
