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!

May 20, 2016 - Mrs. Town visited 4th Grade on Monday to share her chemical and physical changes experiment. Our students will make great scientist someday! Click here for more photos

May 17, 2016 - Despite the rain, there were smiles and cheers on Friday!! Trills & Thrills Music Mini Fest is a non-competitive, motivational, one-day music festivals for students which just happens to be held near Six Flags! Here's how our performers did:

  • 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
