PROJECT COOPERATION 2018 WELCOMES AND CONNECTS 6TH GRADERS

Posted August 8 at 2:40pm

This summer’s Project Cooperation at the middle school served 200 incoming students, with the help of 42 high school peer leaders—and a host of volunteers. This school-funded, three-day program (Aug. 6-8) is exclusively designed to prepare sixth graders to make the leap to the middle school in September.

“This is a unique opportunity for Otisville and Minisink graduates to get to know one another,” said Jennifer Pagnanella who coordinates the project with fellow English teacher, Nick Prezioso. “It goes a long way in easing the anxiety of starting over in a new building, with new peers and personnel.”
