RENOVO – Following Thursday’s re-inauguration of the Bucktail campus, the Keystone Central School Board held its only meeting in October. The meeting was a combined working and voting session.

KCSD Superintendent Jacquelyn Martin spoke of Keystone Academy’s success in her report. According to Martin, 151 students will attend the academy.

“I am pleased to announce that 151 K-12 students have enrolled in Keystone Academy, which is our new after-school program,” Martin said. “This program aims to focus on the loss of academic learning and will promote healthy social and emotional development. We have 35 staff who juggle these after-hours responsibilities in our district. “

The program is funded by the ESSR grant.

Martin also spoke about the upcoming Homecoming parade, which will take place on Thursday, October 21 in downtown Lock Haven. Once again, KCSD will partner with Lock Haven University.

“I was told there were over 30 entries for the parade,” Martin said.

The tanks will be judged in front of the Elks Lodge along E. Main St. Martin said some “very important people” will judge the tanks. Wooded “Bo” Miller will be the emcee, Martin said.

Judges for the tanks will be: Clinton County Sheriff Kerry Stover, Clinton County Tourism Director Julie Brennan and Lock Haven City Manager Greg Wilson.

Martin called them “three icons from County Clinton.”

All three will rate the floats for school spirit and several other categories.

Martin said a joint cheering rally for Bucktail High School and Central Mountain High School will be held inside the Lock Haven University East Campus Gymnasium. Albert Jones of Lock Haven University will be the emcee for the cheering rally.

Anyone wishing to join the KCSD alumni entrance should contact Jamie Kessinger, Martin said.

“I look forward to this fun event, because it lifts morale and makes our students feel really special” Martin said.
