Double Dare Extra Treat

Double Dare Extra Treat

During March, Warren Street principal Mrs. Lent challenged every student in the building to read at least one Accelerated Reader book and take tests. They embraced the challenge and EVERY SINGLE KID read at least one book before the start of Spring Break. This earned the top three readers the opportunity to throw pies at the principal on April 18!  Staff members were so proud of the students that a bunch of them volunteered to serve as pie targets too!

In addition to the pie throwing event, students also enjoyed Double Dare challenges that included art work with whipped cream, feeding a friend with no hands, and finding the gummy worms! Keep reading everyone, May challenges will be here soon!

Settling the Early Adirondacks

Settling the Early Adirondacks

Fifth graders enjoyed a presentation by the Blue Mountain Lake Museum titled
“Settling the Adirondacks”.

This program provided students with insights to the challenges faced by early settlers in the Adirondacks, the difficulties of farming in the mountains, and the threat posed by wild animals to livestock and crops. Fur clothing and antique traps were also available for viewing as the presenters discussed how farmers turned their pests into profits with tracking and trapping.

Warren Newsletter April 2019

In addition to the content shared below, a PDF version of the April 2019 Warren Newsletter is available to print using the free Adobe Acrobat program.

Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

Happy Spring!  It is already the beginning of the 4th quarter and report cards will be coming home on April 18th.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teachers.

We had so much fun celebrating literacy month in March.  Author, Darren Sardelli, came in and shared his poems with us and motivated us to write our own.  We had a fun Poetry Café celebration to display and present poems that students created and are still sharing our ideas with him.

You would not believe how much students at Warren Street have been reading!  Our AR theme is so much fun with Double Dare challenges this year.  EVERY single student read this month and passed at least one AR test.  The incentive– throwing pie at their principal.  Yup– they did it.  Pie throwing will be happening this month and all (well, almost all) are so excited!

In upcoming weeks we will be having presentations from Blue Mountain Lake’s Adirondack Museum.  Students in each grade level will be getting enrichment in sessions such as Amazing Animal Adaptations, Tracking 101, and Settling the Adirondacks.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child(ren), please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs. Nikki Lent, Principal

Odyssey Team Headed to World Finals Again!

Odyssey Team Headed to World Finals Again!

Odyssey of the Mind 40 Years PosterThe Johnstown Odyssey of the Mind program has more good news to share!

This past weekend, five Johnstown teams competed in the New York State Finals. The students all did a great job and represented our school district very well. Qualifying for the state competition in Binghamton is an accomplishment in and of itself! At the state level, some of our teams were up against schools that have been competing in this program for many years.

Johnstown Odyssey Coordinator Kristin Meashaw reported that our students and their families spent the morning supporting each other by attending other Johnstown long term problems. She says that it was great to see everyone showing their Johnstown spirit and cheering each other on.

Eighth grade team in costumesThe Knox Junior High eighth grade team, known as the Energetic Engineers, made another impressive showing this year at States. After qualifying for World Finals last year and competing at Iowa State University last May, they again placed second out of 17 teams. Since all first and second place teams advance to the World level, this group of outstanding students will be making a repeat showing. This May they will be traveling to Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.

Mrs. Meashaw said, “Not many teams can say they have gone to World Finals. Hardly anyone gets to say they are returning for the second year in a row! This very talented group of Johnstown students are wonderful role models and mentors for the program.”
