Senator Joe Robach Helps Cut Ribbon on Renovated Rochester City Schools

With the 2013-2014 school year recently underway, Joe Robach is an active supporter of education and the Rochester City School District. That’s why he was on hand to help re-open several City of Rochester schools that have undergone various renovations and improvements. A week before the start of school, students, teachers, parents and school administrators convened at the Enrico Fermi School #17 on Orchard Street and at Helen Barrett Montgomery School #50 in the City of Rochester.

School #17 is a newly rebuilt school that serves grades pre-K through 8 and is an Extended Learning Time School adding 300 hours to the school year for each student. Joe Robach was pleased to discuss the importance of education as one of the distinguished speakers at the official ribbon cutting ceremony.

“This is a magnificent, new facility for you to learn and grow in. This facility is as good as any that I’ve seen in the Rochester area, it’s now up to you to put in the work to ensure you get the most out of your education,” commented Senator Joe Robach.

School #50 serves grades K through 6 with an academic vision of “Academic excellence: every minutes counts!” Senator Joe Robach echoed that vision and stressed the importance of education, to students and their parents at the school’s opening celebration. “This building is an investment in to you and your education, I know that you all are capable of big things and you now have the resources to do it,” said Joe Robach.

As a native of the Charlotte area, Senator Joe Robach was especially excited to help reopen Charlotte High School on Lake Avenue after it had been closed for substantial renovations. The newly renovated school will not only be home to Charlotte High School and its 9th – 12th graders, but will also be home to the Rochester Leadership Academy for Young Men. Senator Joe Robach was excited to hear about the education the students will receive at this new school.

“The Leadership Academy for Young Men has a commitment to providing young men with an education focused on discipline and respect. The students at this new institution will learn the importance of an education, I have no doubt about that,” said Senator Joe Robach.
