|We are building our “Veterans Wall of Honor” in our foyer to honor veterans in our school community for Veterans Day. If you or a family member is a veteran, please consider providing us with a copy of a picture along with the name of the veteran. Indicate the family connection, branch of service, and the period of service. There is a photo collection box in the main office. Let us know if we can keep the picture. This will allow us to use the picture each year. In addition, we will honor Veterans at our November 1, Team Builder Character Education Assembly. Our character trait of the month of November is citizenship. Our gratitude goes out to Mrs. Kay Gallery and Mrs. Donna Foley as well as students from her classroom School will not be in session on Tuesday, November 5, for a Professional Development Day for staff. School will not be in session on November 11 to celebrate Veteran’s Day. Our annual Thanksgiving recess is November 27 to 29.
This from our Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) staff: Build a Structure That Can Withstand an Earthquake - Using toothpicks, marshmallows, and more, kids design different structures and then simulate an earthquake to test which stay upright—without any significant change in structural integrity.
ESE’s first annual Fun Run is in the books! The Fun Run was an awesome day filled with smiles, laughter and so much running! All of the students participated in the Fun Run and every student received a Golden Sneaker, which is showcased on our Golden Sneaker Wall. We had 167 students fundraise for this event! And thanks to the hard work and effort on behalf of these students, their families and friends, our school community brought in $6,486.48 (minus our expenses). All of the money raised will go into a fund that will be used for school sponsored activities by the ESE PTO. The PTO sponsors Fun Day, field trips, state testing snacks, the visiting author and much, much, more!!
It was so great to see our community, from local businesses to the East Syracuse Fire Department, supporting our great school. We all came together and had an amazing day. The smiles on the students’ faces were priceless and we could see how empowered they all felt as they counted their rubber bands at the end. The Fun Run also ties into the District’s Health and Wellness initiative to encourage a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise. Even Mr. Dadey remarked how he can’t get the students to run during PE, and to look at them now!! What a great event and we all cannot wait to see what next year’s Fun Run has in store!!
We would like to recognize Terrance Barner as the top lap runner for the boys, as well as Lucy Gallery and Sienna Rhode as the top lap runners for the girls.

Student Council presents “St. Matt’s Canned Food Drive”
Students and staff will collect non-perishable food items for St. Matthew’s food pantry starting November 12 through the 26th. This is an annual event that benefits our community members. Students can bring in food items (canned, boxed, or bagged) and add them to a collection in main lobby. The food items will be delivered to St. Matthew’s to replenish the pantry after Thanksgiving. Please help us make this collection a huge success!
The character education trait for November is Self-Control. We ask for your help by discussing this trait at home with your student. Our entire school community wishes you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
