Massena Central Community Schools. Our Kids. Our School. Our Community.

Massena Central is a Community School, what does this mean? 
Building a strong partnership between the school district and the surrounding community. This includes working with community partners such as law enforcement, local firefighters, not for profits, faith-based organizations, and colleges. Through this network, there are accessible resources for students and families in need of basic necessities such as clothing, shelter, or food. As a result, this relationship helps to promote the local organization when they meet a student or family’s need. 
 
What are Parent Cafe's? 
The Parent Cafes are part of our community schools and are designed to help improve family and community engagement with the district. The goal is to make connections with families, engage in dialogue about the school and determine topics of interest for future Parent Café events. Schools are most successful and our students learn best when there is a positive partnership between parents and schools. This initiative seeks to enhance this relationship.

Students at Massena Central Schools will be safer this winter thanks to a Girl Scouts Silver Award Project.  Massena Central School students, Christine G. and Kaitlyn D. completed over 50 hours each toward their Girl Scout Silver Award to develop three short films highlighting safe COVID prevention practices and made 125 mask lanyards. The short films focus on the topics of social distancing, hand washing, and mask wearing and will be shared with families throughout 

the school district.  The mask lanyards will be shared with district elementary school students and are designed to prevent masks from getting misplaced.  Christine and Kaitlyn enjoyed working on the short films and learning about video editing and are excited to share their work with other students at Massena Central.

High School students in the National Honor Society and Student Council held a coat drive and collected 24 winter coats to help keep students warm this winter.  The coats will be available in the High School Lobby for the rest of the winter and sizes range from child to adult. Students, parents, and caretakers are encouraged to stop in and take a free warm coat if they need one.  If anyone has a warm coat to donate, please drop them off at the front office of the Massena High School.
