Ben's Book Station at North Warren Central School

Last June, Bill Osborne of the Ben Osborne Memorial Fund met with North Warren Superintendent, Michele French, Technology Teacher, Chris Stiles and School Counselor, Mike Therio to discuss the addition of a Ben's Book Station” on North Warren Central School property. The project, to be fully funded by the Ben Osborne fund, would allow K-12 students from the Brant Lake, Chestertown, and Pottersville communities to have access to free books that can be picked up at any time and either returned, or kept by the student.
One year later, on June 12th, this vision became a reality as Chris Stiles and his students completed the bookshelf and fully stocked it with books together. Prevocational Classroom Teacher, Chris Stiles, with Arianna Howe, Thomas Conway, Andrew Beadnell and Ethan Danzce

This book station is located at the start of the Chester Challenge trail, near the bridge to the girls’ softball field. The book station, designed to hold approximately 250 books with a reading bench to eventually be placed at this location will provide a centrally accessible spot for the North Warren Community, while also being accessible for Bill and for members of the Ben Osborn Fund to access it for restocking with books for K-12 students.
We believe this provides a wonderful opportunity for the children in our community, and it was a great curriculum enrichment project for the PreVocational class, taught by Chris Stiles.

North Warren Natural Helpers Highway Cleanup

On Wednesday, June 12th, the North Warren Natural Helpers Team sponsored their 5th bi-annual highway cleanup event for Route 8 between Dynamite Hill and Route 87. The New York State DOT provided vests and helmets for all participants, while New York State Police (Trooper McMann) and Warren County Sheriff (Deputy Lavallie) provided traffic cover and security. Dave Scroggins provided fresh baked cookies and cold beverages, and 8 students, along with their 3 advisors, Shannon Phelps, Michael Therio and Debra Varsames worked together to collect a total of 10 industrial bags of trash and debris. Thank you to all sponsers and Volunteers to make Race teh Cougar 5K happen!Dear Parents and Guardians, 
Based on recommendation and suggestions for improving our morning arrival procedures, 
beginning on Monday, June 3rd, we will be piloting a new traffic pattern for the month of June. This idea was formulated by our Safety Team that includes staff members, administration, our security staff, our safety specialist from BOCES and members of the State Police and Sheriff's Department. 
The new morning arrival allows traffic to ONLY enter at the main entrance driveway from Route 8 and ALL traffic will exit via our service road to Theriot Avenue. 
On the back of this note, please find a map of the new arrival pattern and please note that 
PARENT DROP OFF will be at the circle by the elementary door entrance. Student parking is still in the same location as is staff parking. 
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we try to improve our traffic flow. 
We hope that this will increase safety for all and help to relieve some of the Route 8 morning 
back-ups. North Warren Calendar Updates

PREPAY FOR FOOD SERVICES

  • With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, North Warren Central School’s Food Service Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time.  This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called mySchoolBucks.com.  By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends. 

    Also, parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating history report.  This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and or lunch within the past thirty days.

For more information and to access these services simply click on the Food Service link and choose Payment Information.
