We made it through the opening of school. Things are exciting around North Warren these days. Students are getting used to working with Chrome Books while using Google Docs and Google Classroom. The potential for advanced learning from these devices and programs is tremendous. We look forward to the eventual integration of Google Classroom in all grades.
On our campus we are seeing many changes. First the roof on the main building was completely redone. Next we have a new trail system around the campus with almost four miles of trails, some to be hiking trails and others to be cross country ski trails and/or snowshoeing trails. The system was built by Dan Smith of Brant Lake. He was part of a Town of Chester initiative to create a multi-location trail system. We are using the Trail system for academic purposes. Soon there will be boxes on the trails identifying environment aspects of the area around the box. The information is being supplied by our Biology Department. We are exploring other academic uses for the trails as we go forward.
The campus baseball field is being restored and the work is near completed.
As we proceed into the school year, students will need to continue their engagement with academics. We encourage them to work hard and stay focused on their education. Doing well in school is the quickest path to a successful, adult life. We also encourage parents to work with their children, offering them assistance and encouragement. With all of us working together the children of North Warren can only succeed.

With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, North Warren Central School’s Food Service Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called mySchoolBucks.com. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends.
Also, parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating history report. This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and or lunch within the past thirty days.
For more information and to access these services simply click on the Food Service link and choose Payment Information.
