Nearly a week has passed since the first day of school and the Tuesday, September 11, Board of Education meeting at Woodstock Elementary, Onteora district principals weighed in on how the new grade configuration was going. Bennett Principal Gabe Buono, whose school now houses all the district’s students in grades four-through-eight, said it was like having a new school. “On the outside we look really good, but on the inside we’re still a mess, behind the scenes were still trying to work it all out,” he said. Classrooms and the new Project Based Learning style teaching program are progressing with consultants lending a helping hand.
