Celebrating the 100th day of school, fashionably
Earlier this year, Schoharie Elementary students
celebrated the 100th day of school by holding a 100th Day Fashion Show
featuring shirts they decorated with 100 items.
At the show, teachers announced what items their
students chose to place 100 times on their shirts. The
children then walked the red carpet to show off their designs. Thank you
to the ETPSO for donating the shirts for the children to decorate. The show was a huge success.
A gathering of elementary scientists
Schoharie Elementary student Olivia Borst presented her project about
boxelder beetles at an April 21 Science Fair hosted by Duanesburg
Elementary for students from the two districts. Noah Dutcher explained
how maple syrup is made and provided visitors with tasty samples.
Science, technology & math were never so tasty
It's not often that a lesson that teaches science,
technology and math also tastes really, really good. For Schoharie
kindergartners, one such lesson
began with learning from high school students and ended with pancakes.
