Challenging and Inspiring Children to be Life-Long Learners

District Announcements

  • Thank You
    Miss Linsley and Mrs. Button
    The end of the 2015 school year at Mount Markham marked the end of the careers of two wonderful teachers.  Miss Barbara Linsley retired after 25 years of teaching 5th grade teacher at Mount Markham Middle School.  She inspired her students to ask questions and never stop the enthusiasm of curiosity.  Mrs. Susan Button retires after 22 years as a second grade teacher here at Mount Markham Elementary.  Mrs. Button's students will always remember her compassion and genuine smile every morning.  Good luck dear ladies.  You will surely be missed.

  • Support Staff loses over 62 years of experience
    Monday afternoon, June 22, 2015, SUAMM said thank you in a small reception of cake and iced tea to three very deserving ladies as they ride off into the retirement sunset. Ann Hilts retires after 12 years as a teacher assistant here at both Mount Markham Elementary and Middle School and 4 years before that at BOCES. Linda Rogers is retiring after 23 years as a kindergarten teachers aide. She substituted for us for 6 years before becoming a teacher's aide. Cindy Robinson retires after 27 years as our high school building secretary.  We thank all three wonderful ladies for their dedication to Mount Markham. Those big smiles say it all. We all will miss you!

The purpose of this review is to assess the district's compliance with selected Federal and State Laws and regulations governing the education of students with disabilities.

We anticipate that we will receive the Regional Associate's report detailing the results of the review in late June/early July. A summary of the finding will be on the website at that time.
