THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
All parents of Potsdam Central School students will now receive a copy of the Board of Education agenda emailed to them prior to each meeting. Meeting agendas were always available online on the school’s website, but were not so easy to access if someone did not know where to look. Now, each parent who supplied an email to the school will be aware of BOE meeting dates and topics.
How often do you attend school board meetings in your town?
Results will be posted July 2.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
June 21 officially marked the beginning of summer. What part of summer are you looking forward to the most this year?

'Pretty impressive storm clouds were seen Monday evening off the shores of Jacques Cartier State Park near Morristown,' said photographer Bruce Dana. 'I managed to snap a few pictures before the heavy rain started. The extended forecast is calling for dryer and warmer weather as we get into July. The river remains high and we don't need anymore rain,' he said. Dana will present a slideshow of nature and wildlife photography at Jacques Cartier State Park on Saturday, July 8, at 7 and 9 p.m. featuring travel photos from Maine, North Carolina and Florida. Bring a folding chair. For Bruce Dana photos, call 850-688-0016.View enlarged photo.
