Have you heard about the exciting changes coming for sixth graders at Warren Street?
Sixth graders will be working with all teachers in ONE team and be following schedules starting in September 2018. The team is excited to start this adventure as we are confident it will benefit students and families in many ways!
A special Open House for sixth grade families is being scheduled and more information about that will be provided soon. An informative letter will be sent home the week of July 23rd, and some details can be found in the following links:
Students in grades 4-6 from Warren Street and Wheelerville took part in the annual Johnstown Elementary Track Meet at Knox Field on Thursday, May 31st. They competed in a variety of track and field events such as the 50 Meter Dash, 50 Yard Hurdles, 200 and 400 Meter Relays, 40 Yard Shuttle Relay, Standing and Running Long Jump, Softball Throw, Discus, Shot Put and Tug-of-War.
As part of their preparation for the annual track meet, the students first participated in a track and field unit in physical education class where they were able to learn and practice their events and organize their relay teams.
Thank you to Bill Trojan and Paul Wager for the great pictures, thank you to everyone who assisted with organizing this event, and thank you to all of our future Sir Bills and Lady Bills for their effort and teamwork.
A group of Warren Street Students worked with Johnstown High School students and staff to get an introduction to coding. The students created code and programmed mini robots and a great time was had by all! This group is looking forward to another visit by high school students next week and we can’t wait to see what fun activity they will be working on.
On Thursday, May 24th, author James Preller visited Knox to discuss his books and writing process with students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades. After Mr. Preller’s presentations, a small group of students participated in a Q & A session with the author, where they discussed their own writing and books that they love.
Special thanks to Ms. Chaulk and Ms. Rau for putting the event together; to the Knox PTSA and JEPTA for sponsoring; and to Mysteries on Main Street for helping with book sales.

Please make sure your child is wearing a helmet when they ride bikes!
Also- as the weather is warming up, please be mindful of our dress code. Students should refrain from wearing overly short shorts and skirts, halter- type tops or tops with spaghetti straps or having any undergarments revealed. If you are questioning what your child has on, chances are it is not okay.
This afternoon, a matter was brought to the attention of Principal Lent regarding threats of a serious nature that were reported to have been made by a student toward the school and its community.
We take the safety of our students very seriously as well as any related threats. Upon receiving the report of these threats, Principal Lent immediately contacted the Johnstown Police Department and other outside community-based service providers for assistance with this matter. As a result, it is being thoroughly investigated and addressed, and we continue to believe that Warren Street School is a safe environment for our students.
We appreciate the role that our students played in bringing this matter to our attention and the roles that parents play every day in our students’ safety.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Warren Street Main Office at 518-762-3715.
