Learning about landforms and more 

When 6th graders created models of landforms, they learned much more than geography.

Thankful for those who have served

Lieutenant Colonel Danner made a special presentation on Veterans Day to Mary Bates' 5th-grade class, including an explanation of uniforms worn by those who serve. See photo below.

3-D learning about landforms - and more

What's made of frosting, cotton, moss, brownies, food coloring, Legos, flour, bark, sticks, rocks, acorns, paint, cardboard, plastic, clay, flour, wood, gummy candy, balloons, pipe cleaners and more? Why the landforms of the earth, of course!

For SCS 6th-graders, the project was about way more than geography: they grew their knowledge across a range of subjects and had fun learning, too. READ MORE & VIEW PHOTO GALLERY

Safety drills are routine and important

Fire drills, lockdown drills, go-home-early drills: all are a routine but important part of keeping students and staff prepared and our school safe. Practicing for emergencies is important for all of us, and drills will be held throughout the school year. As with fire drills, lockdown, lockout and other drills are not announced ahead of time.

Elementary students and WGNA: Don't be a bully

To prepare for October as Bullying Awareness Month, students in Karen Yager's 4th-grade class at Schoharie Elementary teamed up with Richie Phillips of the Sean, Richie and Bethany Show on radio station WGNA to create a brand new song, "Don't Be a Bully."

Phillips visited the class in September, but he is no stranger to SCS, having worked with students in the past to put positive messages to music.

On the WGNA webpage about this year's song, Phillips said, "Leave it to Mrs. Yager from Schoharie Elementary to come through when I was looking for a class to create a anti-bullying song to kick off our Anti Bullying Week on the Sean, Richie and Bethany Show. Much appreciated – and you should hear the result!

"This awesome group of kids – fourth-graders – created a song parody in under an hour to kickoff what’s going to be a very special week on our show. We’re starting an Anti-Bullying Awareness Week beginning October 3rd. We want to help start the new school year off on the right foot."

Mosaic mural photoed for displaytile

For many years, a piece of public art was displayed in the lobby of Schoharie Elementary. The mosaic mural of ceramic tiles illustrates children's interpretations of what a centennial celebration means.

The mosaic had to be placed in storage due to age-related deterioration. The mosaic is sadly beyond the point of salvation. However, it has been photographed as a means to preserve the project. READ MORE
