Greene Central Schools Blessings in a Backpack Feeding Program
The Greene Central School in partnership with the Zion Episcopal Church are in their eighth year participating in the nationally recognized, Blessings in a Backpack feeding program. This is a unique program designed to feed our school children, universal kindergarten through the twelfth grade, who are at risk of having little or no food on the weekends. Greene Central School is a high needs district. Most do not realize that approximately 50% of our school children qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program. 
G.C.S. Students participated in All-County Music Festivals
Every year our Chenango County music teachers host two festivals: the Winter Festival (in January), and the Spring Festival (in March). We rotate the host school, and hold auditions in the fall at Bainbridge-Guilford. These festivals showcase the top students in each district, and after hours of rehearsal, each festival culminates in a concert.

Participants in the Elementary Chorus, Elementary Band, Jr. Band, and Jr. Chorus are in grades 5-8. These students were placed by teacher recommendation.

Participants in the Swing Choir, Senior Chorus and Senior Band are in grades 9-12 and auditioned for placement in the fall.
