Goodbye, Mr. Dubik – a look back at superintendent’s 38-year career in education

In his 14 years in the Cazenovia Central School District — 10 of those as superintendent — Bob Dubik has achieved many successes, made institutional changes, passed 10 budgets, attended at least one event for every school sport and extracurricular activity offered and been a constant and visible participant in community organizations and events. “I’m a proud father,” Dubik said after ticking off the numerous accomplishments of Cazenovia students he has fostered and witnessed since he became superintendent in 2004. “I’m proud of everything, not just one thing that we’ve accomplished. … Certainly there are things I will miss, especially the kids — seeing them every day, getting hugs, cards, well-wishes from parents, the thank yous and appreciation from community members.” Last Saturday’s commencement ceremonies for the Cazenovia High School Class of 2014 were, in fact, Dubik’s last as superintendent. He retired on June 30, after a career of more than 30 years in education.

Common Grounds Service Learning Program has successful first year

What is service learning? This was the exact question I was asking myself a year ago — well, a school year ago, when I decided to take on this role. Ultimately, service learning is a philosophy where students are encouraged to combine what they study in school with their own skills and interests, and apply it to community service activities. Moreover, the goal of service learning is for students to reflect on the issues and needs of the area, organization or population that they are serving, which in turn offers an opportunity for them to grow as a result of the work they do in our community.
