The following is a list of enrichment activities that occur in our building:
Odyssey of the Mind
Teamwork to develop higher-level thinking and problem-solving. This is a competitive activity with other schools in the tri-county area.
Held in the spring, this event is a major occurrence in the school year. For one night, the school is filled with student demonstrations and scientific concepts.
In June, the school hosts a Field Day to celebrate the end of the school year. Field Day is an opportunity for students to participate in fun activities, games, and competitions with their classmates that offer physical exercise and help children learn team-building skills. The annual event is held outside (weather permitting), and typically features Bounce rides, face painting and other activities that children enjoy.
Fulton County Art Show
Each May district students have the opportunity to visit the Fulton County art show where some of the finest examples of local artists’ works are displayed alongside a gallery of student work representing every school in the district.
Each year the Kingsborough School students and staff participate in a Halloween Parade. Kindergarten leads the parade and each level is picked up in turn as we pass through the building. Additional information is available in early October.
Each year during the holiday season in December, the Kingsborough School chorus performs in a holiday concert presented to both the school and parents, relatives, friends, etc. The date of the holiday concert will be announced early in the school year.
Read Across America Day
Read Across America Day is celebrated each year in March and features special guest readers from throughout the school district and the Gloversville community. The day is also referred to as Dr. Seuss Day because it marks the birth date of Theodor Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) — author of such beloved children’s books as The Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and many others. Read Across America Day offers students and educators alike an opportunity to celebrate books and reading.
Each year the school district participates in a spelling bee sponsored for the region by a local newspaper or company. In March, finalists for this spelling bee travel to an elementary school to determine the district winner. This student will proceed to the regional competition. Grades four and five are the focal levels of the spelling bee.
YMCA After-School Care Program – at Kingsborough until 5:30 p.m. The cost is prorated for a family’s ability to pay.
