All BOCES instructional programs and offices are closed
Due to an order issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, all K-12 schools will remain closed through the rest of the academic year. A decision regarding summer school is pending. Instruction will continue to be provided remotely. 
The closure order is part of a proactive effort to limit exposure to the Coronavirus. All BOCES offices will also remain closed. Updated information will be posted in this location as it becomes available. 
All schools are prepared to provide student meals (two per day per student) at designated pick-up locations throughout the county. You do not have to go to the pick-up site at your school; any site will serve you. To view a list of those locations, click here for Broome County schools,  click here for Tioga County schools.  
Latest updates: Governor says key data points are trending downward, but cautions reopening will be gradual to prevent infection rates from rising again. To read district superintendent's staff briefing, click here.

Jorge Cuevas


Grades: K-12

Audience Size: Maximum 30                     Length of Performance: 30 - 60 minutes

This performance supports the following NYS Learning Standards:
Theatre, Visual Arts:
• Standard 4 (Understanding the cultural dimensions and contribution of the arts)

You won’t believe how fast the students develop a vocabulary in Spanish just from playing Simon Says in Spanish. Jorge starts out briefly going over the sound of the vowels in Spanish. He then teaches them the Spanish names of the appropriate body parts. The students will pronounce each word as it’s introduced. After each short game, more words will be added. By the end of the one session, students have learned 25 – 50 Spanish words. For extra incentive, Jorge provides some prizes.
