“Mrs. Gilooly’s 4th grade class came down to listen to the 1st grade students share their amazing writing and read their small reading group books while enjoying a bagel,” said Teacher Bethany Wallace. “I am extremely proud of how hard my students are working on improving their writing and reading! They are doing an outstanding job!”

Wynantskill UFSD held a lockdown drill on Oct. 26 to help keep students and staff safe.

The drill allows the district to practice safety procedures and ensures police are familiar with our building in the event of an emergency.

“I would like to thank our students, faculty and staff for doing a great job this morning as well as the North Greenbush Police Department for assisting us. We truly appreciate their commitment to helping keep our school safe,” said Superintendent Dr. Thomas Reardon.

The district would also like to remind our community that visitors are not allowed to enter the building during a lockdown drill and are advised to please return to your vehicle until the drill is over.

Kindergartners took a field trip to a local farm on Oct. 13.

“Students got to pick pumpkins, meet different farm animals, go through a corn maze, and learn all about life on a farm. All of this is aligned with the Social Studies curriculum that we are learning,” said Teacher Jacquelyn Glaz.

Great job!
