A growth mindset, taking ownership of learning, believing one can achieve whatever he or she wants to achieve: a program at Schoharie Schools builds much more than skills for the classroom.

Elementary students learned more than basic computer science during Hour of Code - they also sharpened their problem-solving and analytical skills during fun STEAM lessons.

Jenna Wiest's 6th graders collected lots of food for the Helping Club's Food Drive, working hard for a worthy cause.

They Just Ran - really well

Sixty-five Schoharie students ran in the culminating Just Run meet held recently at Tawasentha Park. Eight SCS runners placed in the top 10 for their age group and events.

Students show learning gains

Last fall, Schoharie Elementary launched new math, English and reading programs, and teachers continued engaging learners in an individualized instruction program. This fall, students started the year enriched with greater skills and knowledge thanks to those efforts.

Elks donate dictionaries to entire 3rd grade

Thanks to the Esperance Elks, every SCS 3rd grader now has his or her own dictionary.

PBIS Wellness Day teaches life tools

Students learned from Sarah Nies of Schoharie County Mental Health about coping with stress during PBIS Wellness Day.

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.

A set number of drills is required by the state, and drills are held throughout the year, not announced ahead of time and coordinated with local fire, emergency and law enforcement agencies.
