Anyone for a game of tic-tac-bow?
PTA was fortunate again this year to be able to adopt 3 families from our elementary schools. We want to thank Brie Malagisi, Jessica Brown, and Melissa Dingmon for doing all of the shopping. We hope we are able to bring some happiness to the families and we want to wish all of our district families a Happy Holiday Season.
Our elf got locked out this morning, unfortunately I don't think his snowman friend was too helpful.

Mrs. VanNostrand’s 3rd grade class at Boulevard had the opportunity to work with Kayleigh Duggan, a student at Skidmore College. Ms. Duggan worked with scholars to create a book based off of a memory. Scholars also incorporated dance moves to show their story parts.
We have had two art club sessions so far this year! In October, participating scholars decorated 2 small pumpkins using an array of media. This month, participating scholars painted two pictures: a rose and then one of their choice. Both pieces were framed and they got to take their second piece home. The roses will be given to the Gloversville Public Library to show how thankful we are for their role in our community.
Exploding pumpkins with Mrs. Stryjek at BLVD Fifth graders a Boulevard elementary learned about cause-and-effect relationships with yeast, warm water, hair bleach and Dawn dish soap. We talked about how the volumes of two cups of liquid expands into much larger volume of foam. Remember to never touch the experiment and always wear safety gear!
