Mrs. Town Brings Science Alive @ Hoosic Valley
May 20, 2016 - This year’s Science Club (5th & 6th graders) studied aviation and ended the year with a trip to the Schenectady County Airport. Special thanks goes out to Mike Schadewald, air traffic controller, who showed the science club around the tower. It was a busy day for him so students got to hear his communications with planes taking off and landing. It was especially nice to get an almost bird’s eye view of the field and see the taxiway and runway markings. Next students went with Dave Bono, manager of Richmore Aviation, to see a small 4-seater training plane. He talked about flight school, ailerons, rudders, lift and so much more that students learned throughout the year of science club. A special treat was the view inside one of the hangers that holds a 14 passenger private jet owned by someone from NYC. It is huge and impressive! Their last stop was at the Empire State Aerosciences Museum where Kevin Millington and his helpers showed off the museum and airpark. Students got to climb into an F-5 fighter jet and also a UH-1 gunner helicopter, both used in the Viet Nam War. We thank all the people that made this such terrific fieldtrip!

Senior Band- Rating: Excellent
Good individual sound, work more on sounding as an ensemble
Well articulated, but need to work more on defining the difference between articulation styles
Work more on phrase shaping and a larger dynamic spectrum
Senior Chorus- Rating: Superior
Tone is very well matched, good individual sound production and rich ensemble sonority
Good clarity with diction, could improve on performing stronger, defined consonants, singing could be more passionate
Could use more breath support to improve the sound
Good intervallic accuracy, group listens very well
