Wynantskill UFSD would like to welcome our two newest Board of Education members, Keith Hirokawa and Eric Strang, who were sworn in at the Nov. 17 meeting. The Board selected Mr. Hirokawa and Mr. Strang for two vacant seats that were created when Katrina Dinan and Pat Gray resigned from the Board earlier this year. Mr. Hirokawa and Mr. Strang will serve until the May 16 school budget vote when the community will elect candidates for the two seats.

Second Graders Develop Writing Skills

Second graders are building their writing skills by writing personal narratives in class. "Students are each writing personal narratives, using a 'hook' to get readers interested, 'zooming in' to add detail, and completing a conclusion sentence," explained Teacher Kate Cronin. "Students will then use an editing checklist to check their own writing, conference with an adult, and begin their final copies. When every student has completed their final drafts we will have a publishing celebration!" Great job!
