Staff Gathers For Opening Day Celebration

CAMDEN, NY - Teachers and staff members in the Camden Central School District gathered for their annual “Opening Day” celebration on Wednesday, September 1st, 2021. The program allows district staff a vital opportunity to collaborate and communicate with their peers, while also giving administration a chance to speak directly to staff district-wide about vitally important topics for the upcoming school year.

The day began with breakfast in the high school cafeteria. From there, staff members convened in the Auditorium for a full program of information and celebrations. Staff were shown a special “thank you” video for their efforts during a challenging 2020-21 school year. Ms. Melissa Roys from Connected Community Schools presented about Camden’s entry into her organization’s programs.

Additionally, the occasion also provided an opportunity to celebrate the district’s newest staff members, along with those reaching an important career milestone. The exceptional individuals who are joining the Camden School District team for the 2021-22 school year were introduced to the group, while another group of incredible staff members were honored for 25 years of dedicated service to the district.

The day also featured a flu shot clinic, and in-building sessions and room preparation.

The staff members who were recognized in the All-Staff portion at the high school are listed below.
