Students had many opportunities over the summer to practice problem solving skills, develop their abilities to be a positive team member, learn new strategies for coping with emotions, explore new skill sets, visit colleges, learn more about careers, find out about exciting opportunities in our own area, support each other and foster relationships. We want to extend a special thank you to the following agencies who collaborated with us to provide programming for our students:

Cornell Cooperative Extension – 4H – supported our STEAM day. We built rockets, planted seeds and made solar ovens

Cornell Cooperative Extension – SNAP Ed – came in and cooked with us, showing us about healthy decisions, cooking safety and safe play activities.

SUNY Morrisville CSTEP – supported or STEAM day by helping our students learn how to code robots – everyone was successful and had a working robot! In addition, we learned about nature, downloaded an excellent bird app to help us identify bird songs, took a nature walk, learned about native plants, made flower pots and planted seeds, learned about lady bugs and made a special lady bug craft. CSTEP also coordinated a trip to Norwich Meadows where we were able to explore a working, organic farm, harvest some vegetables, learn about the application to the workforce and college studies and help us understand the importance of this industry to all of us!

AG Day! Thanks to the special effort of Dr. Sheila Marshman, Interim Director of the SUNY Morrisville Norwich Campus we visited the Chenango County Historical Society and the Hanehan Farm. We were able to see the history of agriculture all in one day! At the farm we also learned about the important life skills of a positive attitude, a good work ethic and a professional appearance.

Northeast Classic Car Museum and Willow Primitives – We spent a day exploring cars and art! We also learned how we can express our emotions through our artwork!

We learned about exciting college opportunities at SUNY Morrisville, SUNY Cobleskill, SUNY Broome, Binghamton University and Rochester Institute of Technology!

Challenge by choice was the name of the game as we navigated the ropes course at Greek Peak and tried the mountain coaster. This was a day of encourage others and pushing ourselves a little out of our comfort zones. A job well done by all!

Foursquare, pipeline and our LPP chicken made their returns and helped teach us about leadership, problem solving and decision making.
