Registration for the 2019 Project Cooperation is now open. This is a three-day summer program specifically designed for students entering sixth-grade at Minisink Valley Middle School in the fall.

Program Links: Information letter to parents/guardians • Registration form

In the summer of 2018, Project Cooperation served approximately 200 incoming sixth-grade students.

OTISVILLE ELEMENTARY FIRST-GRADERS MARK FLAG DAY WITH A PARADE AND SONG

Posted June 14 at 1:05pm

Today, June 14, is Flag Day! Do you know what this day means? Students in Melanie Amatetti's Otisville Elementary’s first-grade class do!

Flag day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by the Second Continental Congress. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; on Aug. 3, 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Ms. Amaterri’s class went on parade walk to Principal Biele’s office, around and outside of the school building waving the US Flag in honor of its special day. The song they sang was "Fifty Nifty United States."
