Mr. Misch has passed away

Mr. Misch was a long-time 5th grade teacher at Gasport Elementary. I had him as a teacher, just as my father did. We loved him -- he was a great teacher and a great guy, and we could relate to him as an outdoorsman and nature lover. RIP.

He graduated from Capital University with a bachelor’s degree, did his graduate work at Buffalo State Teachers College where he received his Master’s in Education and then proudly served in the U.S. Navy. He spent his career teaching 5th grade at Gasport Elementary School. John was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church and the Retired Teachers Association. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and spending time with family at Trout Lake.

Husband of 61 years to Virginia Hart Misch; father of Katherine (Barry) Stockhaus and Diane Elizabeth Misch; grandfather of Alyssa Marie Aronow, Nicole Christine (Eric) Geier, the late Melanie Jordan Aronow, Daniel Scott Stockhaus and Rebecca Anne Stockhaus.

Roy-Hart ag program highlighted on WLVL


It was awesome to hear Royalton-Hartland School District ag instructor Matthew Sweeney on WLVL yesterday talking about the district's ag education program and FFA.

Roy-Hart's incredible ag program is so unique, well-equipped, and well-funded (taxes, grants, charity, the Foundation) that it is a major asset and selling point for the district -- it provides career readiness to the students and it is the sort of thing that can attract families to the district.

Niagara Kraze playdates during winter break

 Here's a post from Niagara Kraze's Facebook:


Hey everyone! Welcome to Winter Break! The kids are off from school and everyone is looking for something to do! Because we know so many of you want to spend some of your time with us, we wanted to give you an update on session availability so that you can choose the best open gym session for you!

WEDNESDAY, 2/22, 2pm-4pm - SOLD OUT! Although the presale tickets for this session are sold out, we do take walk-ins, so feel free to come on in!

FRIDAY, 2/24, 10am-12pm - Just 4 presale tickets remain for this session as of now. It will sell out very soon, but again, we do take walk-ins during these sessions so feel free to come on in and get tickets at the door!

SUNDAY, 2/26, 10am-12pm - There are still around 20 presale tickts left for this open play session. It will definitely sell out as we move through the week, but there are some for purchase as of this time.

This is always one of our busiest weeks of the year with our open play sessions and Private Events. So, this year we wanted to make sure we offered enough open play sessions that will allow everyone to kind of spread out and not have everyone want to come in the same day.

We thank everyone so much for your support and we can't wait to see you all this week!
