2018-19 Long-Term Problem Synopses*

Tentative as of April 28, 2018. All problems have an 8-minute time limit.

Problem 1: OMER to the Rescue Again

Divisions I, II & III

Who better to help those in distress than OMER? In this problem, OMER and his trusty Sidekick travel to different places with suitcases holding all of the parts of an OMER-mobile vehicle! OMER and his Sidekick will assemble and ride on the vehicle where it will function in different ways to “save the day.” Between attempts, the vehicle will be disassembled, put back into the suitcases, and taken to a different area where it will be reassembled and driven again. Finally, the OMER-mobile is thrown a hero’s parade as a show of appreciation!

Problem 2: Hide in Plain Sight

Divisions I, II, III & IV

Teams take a cue from nature in this problem where they create and build a team-made mechanical creature that hides in plain sight. The creature will change its appearance three times to avoid being detected by a Searcher Character trying to find it. The way the creature changes will be different each time! The team will create and present a performance where its creature gets into – or out of – various situations using this resourceful skill. In the end the creature will surprise everyone by changing its appearance a final time and reveal its true self.

Problem 3: Classics… Leonardo’s Workshop

Divisions I, II, III & IV

Imagine how inspiring Leonardo DaVinci’s (LDV) workshop must have been. Teams will portray his workplace in an original, creative performance that includes LDV, a patron, and a naysayer. The team will recreate a DaVinci painting, make a three-dimensional representation of one of his works, and recreate another LDV work in any form the team wishes. There will also be an original “debunked” creation that LDV “invented” but discarded because it was mocked. Ironically, the item will be shown as something commonly used in modern times.

Problem 4: Structure Toss

Divisions I, II, III & IV

Step right up and put your structure to the test! Teams must strategize risk for points and “toss” their structures in this year’s problem-turned-carnival. They will use a device to propel the structure in a carnival game. If it travels in the air it gets higher score! Once the structure has been successfully tossed, it can be tested for strength. A carnival barker character will entice other characters to join the fun during a performance that incorporates testing the structure’s strength with creative games of skill and chance.

Problem 5: Opposites Distract

Divisions I, II, III & IV

Disagreements can distract groups from seeing the bigger picture. Teams will create and present a humorous performance about a sneaky character that distracts others while trying to take control of anything the team wishes. In the performance it will lure others into silly arguments and be successful two times. The arguments will be presented using different dramatic styles and will include attention-getting effects. In the end, the groups will learn that they have been intentionally distracted and will catch the sneaky character before it takes control.

Primary: Museum Makers

Grades K-2

Kids can see the extraordinary in the ordinary. Now they will use that ability to create their own museum! The team will create and present an original museum and its exhibits. During the performance, the team will reveal three creative displays that explain the theme of the museum and show off team-made items. A tour guide will take audiences on a journey through the museum to meet a humorous artist and a curator.

School Banking at Warren Street

School Banking at Warren Street

First Choice Financial Credit Union logo

September 2018

Dear Parent or Guardian:

This year we plan to do a “School Savings Star Program” with First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union. 

Saving pennies, nickels and dimes will add up to dollars in no time!

The Johnstown School District is committed to providing a well-rounded education to prepare students for success in all facets of their lives. This includes learning the importance of saving money and developing strong savings habits beginning at the elementary school level.

By participating in the school-banking program, your child will learn what a savings account is, begin to appreciate the advantages of saving, and will receive an account statement displaying their account activity. Your child will be able to make their deposits right at school on a designated banking day, or at the First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union main office located at 355 Hales Mills Road in Gloversville, the Walmart branch office located inside the Walmart Supercenter in Gloversville, or the Broadalbin Branch Office located at 3677 State Highway 30 in Broadalbin.

If your child would like to participate in the “School Savings Star Program,” he/she can get their account started at any of the First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union locations. This savings account can be open with as little as $5. The Credit Union will make the first deposit of $5 for all Student Star Savers.

If your child already has an account with First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union, they only need to bring their savings deposit and account number to school on banking day.

The first “School Savings Star” banking day will begin on Wednesday,September 19, 2018 and end on Wednesday,June 5, 2019. Bank days will  be on Wednesdays except for  holidays or school closings/delays, and will resume the  following scheduled Wednesday.

As we strive to provide a quality education, we hope to see your child participate in this program and take advantage of the learning experience it will provide. We thank our First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union partners for their investment in and support of our students and our District.

Sincerely,

Nicole Lent
Principal

Arrival and Dismissal

Attendance is taken and instruction begins each morning, promptly at 9:00 a.m. It is very important that your child is on time, attends school every day, is well rested, and has a positive attitude. These things will contribute to the success of your child this year. Students are encouraged to arrive to school after 8:30. Breakfast begins at 8:30.  If your child is not eating breakfast, they will be directed different locations by grade level to visit with friends or read a book, and released to their classrooms at 8:45 a.m.

Students riding bicycles to school must wear a helmet, and bike locks would also be useful. Please contact the school if you are unable to provide your child with a helmet.
