Students perform in BYSTANDER adaptation
Our sixth graders have all read the book BYSTANDER by James Preller. It is a high interest, fast paced, middle grade novel that no one wants to put down. The discussions it has triggered amongst our students have been rich and poignant. Author James Preller visited our school on October 25 and spoke with our students about his life as an author, and writing and researching the topic of bullying for his book.
On November 4 at 1:30 p.m., the Concrete Temple Theatre along with ten of our sixth grade students will be performing an adaptation of BYSTANDER, a play developed by the theatre. Students in grades 4, 5, and 6 will watch the play at 1:30 p.m. The play will be performed at 6:30 p.m. for our community at the M.C. Smith Intermediate School. This adaptation is both free and open to the public. We hope that all of our students and their families will be able to see the 6:30 p.m. show and support the ten students that worked with Mrs. Dolan, Mr. Acevedo and the Concrete Temple Theatre during the 2011 April vacation days!

Students learn about alternative energy
Students in Mrs. Curry, Mrs. Wheeler, Mrs. Van Alphen, Mrs., Cousens, and Mrs. Semanick's fifth grade class created research projects on renewable energy. The students researched hydroelectric, wind and ethanol as alternate energy resources. They learned that New York State has many wind farms that Niagara Falls is a major source of hydroelectric power, and that ethanol and other bio-fuels are easy to produce. Some current research is looking at algae which will not have a huge impact on food sources for humans, cattle or turkeys.
