SHS Students Volunteer at Christmas Bureau:
On Monday, 12/19, student athletes, Key Club members and NHS students visited the Oncenter today to help with the Salvation Army Christmas Bureau set up. They were a great group and worked hard separating toys and putting them on display for the shopping day.
Many of the boys learned the difference between infant and toddler toys and some even gave some extra help to the special needs group that was also there during our time slot!
Thank you to the chaperones who came and worked hard too!
We all look forward to next year!

SES Summer Learning & Fun!:
Students in Ms Collins' and Ms. Clements' summer school enjoyed many opportunities to experience the Solvay community. They walked to the Solvay Police Station, Solvay Fire Department, Solvay Public Library, Solvay Pool, Splash Pad, Youth Center, and WWII Memorial Park. They read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, and made origami cranes. Students investigated structures and functions of the human body. Students explore how our bones and muscles are interconnected, how our eyes interact with light and impact our vision, and how our brain responds to stimuli in our environment. They played board games with peers and listened to a daily read aloud, Bridge to Terabithia.
