Parents and students in grades 7-12 who want to play Modified or Varsity Soccer are invited to an informational meeting on MONDAY, AUGUST 15 at 7 PM in the gym. We will go over expectations for both levels, explain student and parent behavior expectations, review the concussion protocol, and sign forms. If you are unable to attend the meeting, forms are also available on the website. These completed forms must be submitted to our school nurse before the first day of practice for Varsity (August 22), and the first day of school for Modified (September 7).

We have lift-off! And sometimes we don't...at first. Recently Ms. Beck's two science classes of 6th graders took their experiments in chemistry and engineering outdoors as part of a project integrating concepts studied throughout the school year. "If students were able to design a rocket that overcame gravity, they got a 100%. Students helped each other, gave advice, and tried/re-tried different methods. It was a true experiment in the scientific method."

Student writers in 6th grade were awarded for contributions to the Echoes Spring 2022 script written by students across New York State, and performed by the professional REV Theatre Company. Showcased Author Alex Thompson and Excellence in Writing winner Konyr Clemens join a roster of Honorable Mention and participating authors from O V and across the state, with Alex's work being featured in a compelling ensemble show that was at once funny, serious, thoughtful, and always creative. Congratulations, writers!
