COLTON -- Colton-Pierrepont Central School recently partnered with Clarkson University for a day of learning.

On Feb. 11 the school partnered with Clarkson University to discuss with students in grades 7- 12 how to safely use the internet as a tool to reach college and career readiness.

Students also heard from World War II veterans, learned about life in Colton and South Colton during the 1940s and the transition from one-room schoolhouses in the area to the central school district.

The presentations were based upon historical information captured by the Colton Historical Society as part of The Sunday Rock Legacy Project, which also involves CPCS and the Grasse River Players.

As part of the theatrical performance in July 2013 the Sunday Rock Legacy partners produced a Radio Hour Show Program & Historical Guide.

The Sunday Rock Legacy Project needs between $15,000 - 20,000 annually for the stage performance, to do related historical research and to develop associated educational materials.

The first production, held in July 2012, was Sunday Rock - The Folk Musical.

The project in 2013 focused on the 1940s and World War II in particular, with Karen Wells teaming up with Lorie Gruneisen to bring The 1940’s Radio Hour written by Walton Jones to life on stage at CPCS.

The theme for the legacy project in 2014 is “ABRACADABRA - School House Magic.”
