A calculated way to help younger schoolmates

At Schoharie High School, seniors are asked to complete a service project as part of English 12. This year, thanks to an idea from Board of Education member Dan Guasp, students in Tom Clayton's English class helped younger students in a calculated way.

 "Mr. Guasp had seen photos from a school where they put math facts - multiplication tables - on flights of stairs so that elementary students could see and hopefully memorize equations as they went through their school building each day," Clayton related.

"He wanted to bring the idea to our own elementary school, and four seniors worked together to make it a reality."

Emily and Sarah Cooper, Ana Tessitore and Caitlyn Cacciolfi painted Schoharie Elementary steps in bright colors and affixed math equations.

"They worked for several weeks to make this happen, and the elementary teachers and students seem excited about the results," Clayton said. "I'm proud of how they served the school community."
