Guilderland Central School District

GUILDERLAND —The Guilderland Central School District has a month full of events for March, which is Music In Our Schools Month:

A carnival of games inside the packed Altamont Elementary School on March 6 used small white tickets for access, raising funds for a class field trip. Altamont fifth graders read “All the Way Home,” a book by Patricia Reilly Giff in which two young fans of the Brooklyn Dodgers, one from an upstate apple orchard, the other in Brooklyn, form a friendship on Coney Island and plan to return to the bucolic upstate orchard.  Teacher Karen Shaffer said the students already toured Indian Ladder Farms, in New Scotland, and they look forward to visiting Coney Island.

To the Editor:

I take a Spanish level 4 class as a sophomore at Guilderland High School. In our Spanish class, we were asked to make an environmental change.

“Mulan Jr.” will be performed on Friday and Saturday, March 6 and 7, at 7 p.m at Farnsworth Middle School.

Donald DePass and Michael Fitzgerald returned recently to the room where they graduated from high school, this time to be admitted to the New York State Bar.

Two Guilderland wrestlers discuss some brutal moves.

"At the end of the day, we've done the right thing for students," said Guilderland's business administrator as the district has used its fund balance to preserve programs, causing the comptroller to deem it "susceptible" to stress.

Altamont Elementary School's fifth-graders read candidates for this year’s Caldecott and Newbery medals. Students spent the snow day on an email thread with their teacher offering their thoughts. 

"Life is painting a picture, not doing a sum," said Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., a judge who might well have approved of the way kids at Altamont Elementary School assessed picture books.

Middle-school students competing in a C-SPAN competition sat down Monday with Congressman Paul Tonko to talk about health care and federal finances.
