If anyone in the PCS Family is looking for drywall hangers/finishers, give these two young men a call. Mr. Wyant and I attended the Genesee Valley BOCES Building Trades open house today. Austin and Thomas took us on a tour of the job site, and described their portions of the work. This is one of our favorite events of the year. Our students get to show off their work for their families, school faculty/administration, and potential employers. Best students, best career and technical education programs, best team!

Congratulations to our 5th grade D.A.R.E. graduates! The 10-week program, led by Officer Masci, has expanded beyond the "Just Say No" message from decades ago. The officer-led lessons now focus more on social-emotional needs, handling peer pressure, and making good decisions. Officer Masci and K9 Officer Sunny were joined on stage by Superintendent McLaughlin, SRO Anderson, and Mrs. Kettle. Students Natalie Blanchard-Beard, Ivan Sealy, and Lacey Deaton shared their D.A.R.E. essays with the audience. #PrideInTheHive

Fifth and sixth graders are learning that agronomy, or the study of plants and crops, is pretty cool. Stephanie Czerniak, 4-H Community Educator from Wyoming County Cornell Cooperative Extension, invited Art Graves, an agronomist from T&S Crop Service in Warsaw, in to talk about his job and the use of drones in agriculture. Students have been very inquisitive this morning, asking a variety of questions ranging from what makes plants sick to the rules of drone piloting. #PrideInTheHive

Ms. Reding's junior high students are becoming very familiar with the kitchen…and loving every minute of it! Once a week until the end of the school year, each student is bringing in a favorite recipe from home to cook with classmates. Last week the class mastered Liam’s croissant recipe, and yesterday they indulged in Joziah’s mac and cheese. Yum! #PrideInTheHive
