On May 19th the 8th and 9th grade classes attended a field trip to the Black River Outdoor Education Facility in Boonville NY. Students spent the day learning group mountain bike riding safety through different skill level trails in the Adirondacks. Along the way students were educated about different concepts regarding our environment and the beauty that nature serves. Although the weather did not cooperate, all students had a great time. We were very proud of their perseverance and determination. These skills of perseverance and determination transfer to real life as well as the opportunity to experience lifetime sports like mountain biking.

The third graders got to meet their local heroes in person today! Mrs. Beam and Ms. Valenta's class spent some time this year researching heroes around the world. After they finished their research they had the opportunity to write a letter to someone that they thought was a hero in their local community. These letters were sent to the Van Hornesville Fire Department. As a thank you, the fire department showed up to present them with a gift and to thank them in person for appreciating their hard work. The Kindergarten class joined in on the fun and educational experience.

Owen D. Young students grades 3 and up had a great time at the Route 80 Bowl! Students learned how to bowl and keep score while enjoying snacks and socializing with their friends. On the last day of bowling, the students were given ice cream! The money was donated, thru a local community member, from left over funds of a bowling league from previous years. The students were pleasantly surprised. It was a "bowl" of fun!

The 3rd Grade class has started their unit of fossils. Today, they had to investigate hidden clues about the earth's past. They worked like paleontologists and carefully dug through different layers of the earth identifying what was in each layer contained. After their investigation they then discussed with their group the different fossils found in each layer and how each layer was different and could have changed over time.

On Wednesday, Mach 23, members of the Science Club in connection with CFES and West Point Military Academy participated in a STEM challenge during the school day. Second Year Cadet Ryan Logan joined the students to help them with a rocket design challenge related to the challenge the West Point robotics team, the Army Astrobotics, were working on. The students were challenged to build the best balloon rocket using the given materials that could carry the heaviest payload and fly across the room the fastest within 1 hour or working time. The students had a great time and would like to thank Cadet Logan, West Point and the CFES program for giving them this opportunity.
