behalf of the teachers and entire staff at Chichester Central
School, we hope you have had a safe and enjoyable summer thus far.
We are looking forward to welcoming back all of our students for
the 2015-16 school year. The classrooms are in order, hallways are
getting waxed and shined, and the teaching staff is gearing up for
another exciting year of learning and growing together with our
students. Within the next week, all students should be receiving a
“welcome” letter from their homeroom teacher which will list
necessary supplies for the school year. You will also be able to
find these letters on the school website in case you misplace yours.
Wednesday, August 26, is our first day of school. Please look over
the bus routes as some times and stops have changed. Students
should be at their designated bus stop at least 10 minutes before
their scheduled time in the first week of school so we can gauge
their pick-up time and bus route correctly. Parents who are dropping
off their children are asked to do so after 8 and as close to 8:10
as possible. Students may begin entering their homeroom at 8:15.
There is still time for parents who would like to have their
children use the New Morning Childcare program to register. This
program provides care for students of Chichester Central School
before school beginning at 7 AM and after school until 5:45 PM.
Parents and families may call the New Morning program at 669-3591

Pleasant Street. Although a wholesale operation, Millican offered
an hour long tour of their facility and gave Tour participants an
opportunity to make a purchase. Participants were very appreciative
of Millican’s effort to make this weekend a memorable one and our
tour guide, who took the time to inform and answer horticultural

mature ladies raising flowers in tiny gardens. This Tour brought to
light the diversity of gardeners with that some of our more
experienced vegetable gardeners sharing growing techniques in
gardens to provide food for much of the year. We were
pleased that one entire family takes gardening to heart, and
delighted to have 14-year old Josh Newhook share his two gardens
with Tour participants. Josh enthusiastically guided participants
around the family backyard explaining who created which gardens,
type of flowers and herbs and shared his knowledge and excitement of

Farmers’ Market At The Chichester Library
conjunction with the August 22nd book sale, the Library will be
hosting a local version of a Farmers’ Market. The gardens are
yielding their crops in abundance and what better way to distribute
any extras than selling them? Those who have vegetables, eggs,
honey, syrup, flowers or anything they have personally produced
(such as baked goods, soaps, lip balms, etc.) are encouraged to
participate. Each “vendor” is responsible for set-up and tear-down
of their own 10’ x 10’ space. Smaller spaces are also available.
There will be nearby parking available for vendors and buyers.
Interested parties should register by contacting the Library or one
of the Trustees (Carol Hendee, Carolee Davison or Lucille Noel) and
providing your name and phone number. The market is planned for
either rain or shine, as there is no rain date.
