OSWEGO, NY – The 2013-2014 school year is officially under way and The Buccaneer Junior/Senior High School celebrated it by hosting the Fall Harvest Dinner on October 9 at the Scriba Fire Station.
Since the BUC School, as it’s colloquially termed, is modeled around the foundation of the Big Picture Learning for education, one premise it adamantly adheres to is community involvement.
This year parents, grandparents, siblings, guardians, students, and the BUC faculty arrived that evening to show their support for the program in its second year here in Oswego.
The night commenced at 5 p.m. with a welcome meet-and-greet by the Principal Deb Smith in the Banquet Hall of the Scriba Fire Station.
A special thanks is given to the Scriba Fire Department for allowing The BUC Family the use of its facility.
The fire department offered the use of its facility in its continuing community involvement endeavor.
Dinner was served promptly at 5:30 p.m. and included tossed garden salad, fresh rolls, spaghetti and meatballs.
Also, an alfredo sauce made by technology teacher and chef Jason Webb was a popular option.
Desserts were brought in by the Parents’ League.
As dinner came to a close, everyone began to mingle.
The BUC faculty walked around speaking with the parents in an open house style forum allowing parents and family members the opportunity to find out how their child is progressing in the school.
The night ended with a final display of community generosity in the form of basket donations for the fundraising raffles.
Donations were received from local businesses including Canale’s, Price Chopper, Wal-Mart, and Davis Meats.
Other donations were from Paws ‘n’ Effect, SunSeekers, Red Sun, and Dunkin’ Donuts.
It was a great time for the students and also a chance for every student to show off their school over dinner with their biggest fans – their parents.
