MEDINA – Medina Central School’s Oak Orchard Primary and Clifford Wise Intermediate staff had a great time greeting students and their parents for their welcome back picnic on Aug. 24.

Students were able to meet their new teachers, say hello to their old teachers and bring in their supplies to kick off the new school year.

Oak Orchard Primary Principal Jennifer Stearns says that students at both schools who did not attend will receive their assignment in the mail.

Any parent who still needs to enroll their children should do so as soon as possible. They should also be aware that UPK still has a limited number of slots available.

Mrs. Stearns says she and Clifford Wise Intermediate Principals Daniel Doctor and Chris Hughes were pleased with the turnout and very grateful to community organizations: Cornell Cooperative Extension (4H/Digital Literacy), the Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts, Medina Fire Department, Medina Police Department, Orleans County Mental Health, Medina Memorial Hospital,  YMCA, MAAC, Lions Club, the Public Library, OCALS and Head Start for taking time out to talk to the parents and students.  “We can’t wait to see all our students on opening day!”
