Spring is finally here! And with the weather comes a desire to get out a bit more. How about a walk or a ride to Common Grounds Cafe, also known as Dave’s Diner? It’s a very popular spot in the Cazenovia village – an excellent place to sit and enjoy a hot or iced coffee with friends. But did you know you can also enjoy some great art there as well? A collection of about forty works of art created by our fifth, sixth, and seventh grade students will be on display at this local hot spot through the month of April. Pieces include collages, studies in line, color, and value, and more. So when you’re looking for a pleasant way to spend an hour or so, think about visiting Common Grounds and checking out the wonderful work of these talented young students!

The Student Leader program has two facets. These students will assist the principal in maintaining safety and order in the corridors, lavatories, and other areas. The second duty that the Student Leaders are performing is to act as representatives for their peers to discuss concerns they have about our school. This will be a modified form of Student Government. Congratulations to: Carter Ruddy, Quinlan Emhoff, Mary Williams, Megan Kuhn, Brody Coleman and Cooper Hughes.
The second quarter Citizens of the Quarter have been named at the Cazenovia Middle School. This is an honor awarded to a student who displays good manners, a positive attitude, a consideration for others, cooperative behavior and a responsibility toward self and school in an exemplary manner. The students are nominated by their teachers who use specific examples to explain why they feel their nominee has earned this honor. It emphasizes attributes that are not easily measured by grade reports.

It is December in Cazenovia, and the snow is beginning to fall. December also means it’s time for the annual Student Art Show at the New Woodstock Free Library. They have once again graciously agreed to host an exciting display of Cazenovia student art! On Saturday, December 3rd, the exhibit of artwork created by over 100 Cazenovia Elementary and Middle School students was unveiled. Work by students in Kindergarten through seventh grade was on display. A reception complete with refreshments was provided for the opening of the exhibit, which was held from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon. It was very well attended by the artists, their parents, and other appreciative community members. Thanks to the wonderful work of the volunteers at the library, this was an exciting opportunity for the students to showcase their efforts. The artwork will be on display through mid-January of the new year, and it is well worth a trip to view the creations of these talented students. The art work ranges from watercolor landscapes, to portraits, to abstract pieces. You can enjoy everything from paper sculptures, to foil relief work, to studies in color, line, shape and texture. A wide variety of styles and mediums are represented. We hope you will join us in celebrating the arts in our schools, and the success of our children. Please visit the New Woodstock Free Library and be inspired and impressed by the talented young people of the Cazenovia School District. Enjoy several glimpses of the show in the pictures below:
