Cider Mill School had a special visitor the first day of school — its new mascot, Buzzby the Bee. Maddie Dineen, now in fifth grade, submitted the mascot idea during last year's Mascot Madness. She named the mascot #BNKC, which stands for 'Bee Nice, Kind, and Caring.'

Earlier this month, the entire school gathered to discuss the importance of teamwork during Cider Mill's first-ever monthly Hive Huddle. Next month’s Hive Huddle will focus on respect.
