Superintendent of Schools

It’s been a very busy fall so

far, with lots of exciting things


I’ll begin with an update on the

R.I.T.E. Project. Over the course

of the past month, we saw the

completion of Hartwood Park,

the Jr.-Sr. High School Library/

Media Center, Gymnasium, Stu-

dent Commons, Cafeteria, and

Wolcott Street School Kitchen.

All areas need a few punch list

items completed, but are up and

open for business.

Classrooms in the Wolcott

Street and Trigon buildings

continue to receive facelifts in-

cluding new flooring, paint, and

lighting. This work continues

on the second shift and will near

completion in the early spring.

The big push now is the construc-

tion of the new Library/Media

Center at the Wolcott Street

School. The space is opened up

and naturally there are some

structural surprises in 100 year

old buildings. These are being

addressed and the plan is to have

the library open towards the end

of January or the beginning of

February. The construction of the

new gymnasium in the Wolcott

Street School continues to prog-

ress on track.

The District’s sports teams are

completing their fall seasons.

Most teams have finished regular

season play. The Volleyball Team

and Fall Cheerleading are still

in sectional play. Cheerleading

Superintendent ’ Column

29th, at 10:00 am at RIT, while

Along with athletics, the Mu-

sic Department has been very

active this season. Marching

Band competes in its final show

on Sunday, October 30th, at the

Dome at Syracuse University.

This is always a great event with

bands from across the state. The

Le Roy Marching Knights take

the field at 11:00 am. Wish them

luck! Also, save the date, for the

6th Grade Musical, “

Mulan Jr.


This show will be held at the

Jr.-Sr. High School Auditorium

at 7:00 pm on November 10th.

Please bring a canned good for

donation to the Food Pantry.

home, please contact Mrs. Lowe,

Office. Please, no rakes on school


Enjoy a nice fall weekend and

Happy Halloween!

Love Bugs Pumpkin Fun

The Pre-K class at Love Bugs Preschool learned all about

pumpkins this week. The childrenmeasured, weighed and

washed pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. They cleaned

out the inside of the pumpkin and even tried some seeds.

Happy Fall to all.

Batavia Ramparts

Pee Wee III Team

On Saturday, October 8th

the Batavia Ramparts Pee Wee

III team, sponsored by Baltz

Concrete, traveled to scenic

Niagara Falls USA to take on

the Niagara Jr. Purple Eagles

at Dwyer Arena at Niagara

College. The Jr. Purple Eagles

came out fast and strong scoring

3 goals early in the first period.

The Ramparts trailed 7-0 after

2 periods. Even though the

Rampa r ts began to stage a

comeback scoring the only goals

in the 3rd period, they ended up

taking a 7-2 loss. Nate Tilley of

Batavia scored both goals with

one assist by Alex Bartz, also

of Batavia.

On Sunday, October 9th

the Rampa r ts Pee Wee I I I

traveled to Olean to take on the

Olean Arrows. It was an evenly

matched game with a score of

0-0 until late in the 2nd period

with a goal net by the Arrows.

Rampa r ts came out st rong

and quickly in the 3rd period

with an unassisted goal by

Andrew Kasmarek of Stafford

evening up the score to a 1-1

tie. Kasmarek also netted the

go-ahead score, assisted by Zack

Eschberger of LeRoy. Noah

Batavia's lead to 3-1 with goal

assisted by Tilley. The Olean

Arrows scored again at the 6

minute mark to bring the game

to a close 3-2 score. With under

2 minutes left the Arrows pulled

their goalie in a last ditch effort

to tie up the game...Kasmarek

net and scored to cap the game

his first hat trick of the season.
