— The students of Burton Street Elementary School are learning what it was like to live in Cazenovia long ago.

Thanks to the support of both the Cazenovia Public Library and The Burton Street PTA, students are given the opportunity to participate in “The Museum Program.”

This hands-on Social Studies Outreach Program travels into second grade and multi-age classrooms, providing an exciting glimpse into the history of Cazenovia. A key element of each classroom presentation is the opportunity to view a sampling of the library’s extensive collection of artifacts, which includes objects from pre- and post-contact Iroquois, early America and locations around the world.

The five-part program will culminate in a two-hour field trip to the library’s museum. “The Museum Program” is presented by Cazenovia Public Library’s museum educators, Pat Hill and Julia Shotzberger, and is funded by the Burton Street PTA.

Vicki Grimes is president of the Burton Street PTA. She can be reached at vicki@grimes-family.com.
