Teamwork flourishes in Fallsburg

Posted

FALLSBURG - The Fallsburg Central School District Wellness Committee is an energetic group of school and community members dedicated to the well-being of students and staff.

Whenever Committee Chair Suzanne Lendzian has a project to implement this vision, volunteers raise their hands eagerly. On October 8, five people joined her to paint the blacktop on the basketball court in the front field of Benjamin Cosor Elementary School (BCES).

Last year these same volunteers and others painted the early childhood playground. Their experience with stencils provided by group members SueAnn Boyd and Bee Moser from Sullivan County Cornell Cooperative Extension helped the work go smoothly. This year, the stencils were loaned out to Tri-Valley School District, and SueAnn and Bee, along with Suzanne and Fallsburg teachers Amber Smith and Vanessa Marsilio, had to use ingenuity to create their own stencils.

They had a design laid out on paper, and they discussed the different shapes and words and how best to make them happen. It was wonderful to watch the teamwork unfold as the work progressed. People were focused, and, yet, each team chatted about the designs, about their children, about their dogs. Here was an example of a high-performance team in action.

At the end of a few hours, the project was complete and Suzanne took a selfie of the group with some of the designs in the background. Soon, the students at BCES will be enjoying the exercises and following the written word activities that the Wellness Committee has painted so carefully.
