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.”

SPAC Classical Kids Presentation

SPAC Classical Kids Presentation

Warren Street’s fifth graders thoroughly enjoyed an interactive assembly presented by SPAC’s Classical Kids program, sponsored by Union College.

According to the SPAC website, “The program brings professional dancers and musicians into schools for an interactive assembly that introduces students to their art forms, teaches them about an upcoming performance at SPAC, and offers each student a free ticket to the selected performance during SPAC’s summer classical season. All students that complete the program receive a free Classical Kids Lawn Pass which grants the student, and an accompanying adult, free lawn admission to all ballet and orchestra performances at SPAC until their projected year of graduation from High School.”

Our students are now looking forward to the SPAC summer classical season!

Odyssey Teams Advancing to State Finals

Johnstown’s Odyssey of the Mind program had another very successful year at the Regional competition held Saturday, March 9, at Fonda-Fultonville Central School. Our district was well represented by 15 teams, who should all be proud of their hard work.

Five Johnstown teams are now advancing to the New York State finals in Binghamton on March 23. First place teams include The Energetic Engineers from Knox Junior High, coached by Mr. Joe Naselli, and the Warren Street fifth grade team coached by Mr. Dave Downing. Both teams competed in the “Omer to the Rescue Again” problem, with the Downing team winning Division I and the Naselli team winning Division II.

Second place teams receiving a wild card advancement slot include Glebe Street’s Wing team (second and third grade); Warren Street’s Vandewalker team (sixth grade); and the Knox Elston team (eighth grade).

We are very grateful for the approximately 30 volunteer coaches, as well as the support received from our community this past weekend.  It was great to see so many families, teachers, administrators, and Board of Education members at competition.

Odyssey of the Mind members and their families are invited to attend our end of year celebration from 6 – 7 p.m. on Monday, March 18, in the Warren Street cafeteria. We will be recognizing our student competitors at this time.
