End of year schedule update
The last day of school for Susquehanna Valley students in UPK through Grade 8 will be Wednesday, June 22.  This will be an 11:00am dismissal for students in grades 6-8 and a 12:00pm dismissal for students in UPK through grade 5.  Additionally, Brookside Elementary students and staff will not need to attend on Friday, May 27 as previously communicated.  A provision of Education Law does not require that day to be made up after being canceled due to April's snow storm and subsequent power outages.  
Aiden Ruffo snares a perfect score at NYSSMA
A big standing ovation for Francis P. Donnelly's Aiden Ruffo who earned a perfect score on his snare drum solo at the NYSSMA music festival in Johnson City at the beginning of April. A few weeks prior, he auditioned his way onto the stage of Binghamton University's Anderson Center as part of the 5th-6th grade Band at a BCMEA All-County music festival. Nice going Aiden! 
FPD generosity helps Food Bank
Francis P. Donnelly Elementary School recently partnered with the Food Bank of the Southern Tier for our annual food drive.  For five weeks, students and staff collected food items, and even had some friendly students-versus-staff and class-versus-class competitions. When it was all over, Mr. Porcari’s class (pictured above - click the pic to see it full size), with 402 items, had collected the most! And the school donated more than 1,500 items! Over the past five years, F.P. Donnelly staff, students and parents have donated more than 5,200 pounds of food!
