Student Art Show Opening April 12

In a continuing effort to connect school and community, all are invited to a student art show that opens on April 12 at the Hive, a shop located at 321 Main St., Schoharie. The Hive’s owner and the Schoharie Arts Council invited Schoharie Central students to show their artwork in the Hive’s new gallery space on the shop’s second floor. The show will provide the selected Schoharie Elementary student artists with a wonderful experience to show and potentially sell their artwork, as a professional artist regularly needs to do.

Future shows are planned that will be open to students in grades K-12. The show’s opening reception will be held April 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Hive, and for those unable to attend the opening, the show can be viewed during regular store hours until Mother’s Day. Please visit the Hive and support the arts at Schoharie Central School!

Seeing stars

Schenectady's Dudley Observatory brought the stars to Schoharie Elementary on Oct. 24, via StarLab, an infatable observatory. Students in grades 4-6 learned about stars, constellations, galaxies and more - right in their own gym.

Body Mass Index is part of required school health check

State law now requires body mass index, or BMI, and weight status group to included in a student’s school health examination. BMI helps the nurse or doctor know if the student’s weight is in a healthy range or is too high or too low.

A sample of school districts will be selected to take part in a survey by the New York State Department of Health with a goal of helping children be healthier. Only summary information is sent; names or information about individual students are not included. Parents may choose not to have their child's weight status group information included. Read more
