Summer Program Recap - July 9

The first week of the Windsor Central School District’s 2024 summer program continued Tuesday.

Ag educators from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County worked with Knight Lights students to learn about different fruits. They
used those fruits, along with peppers and cucumbers to make a fruit salsa.
“We try to teach them to eat the rainbow. Plus, it gives them the experience of cutting fresh fruits and vegetables which some don’t get to do. It seems like they had fun,” Nicky Huston, ag educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension.

First and second graders spent Tuesday morning swimming at the pool at Windsor Central High School.

Mosaic artist Emily Jablon, owner of Jablon Studios, spoke to Windsor Strong Academy students about how she became a professional artist and learned to make a living doing so.

“I knew that I needed to make giant mosaics for thousands of dollars, so I came up with community projects. I made them possible with the help of community members, grants, BOCES, not-for-profits, and organizations,” said Jablon.

Jablon hopes the students learn from her ability to make her career goals a reality.

“Anything they want to do is truly possible with the right attitude,” said Jablon.

Basketball, cheer, and wrestling camps continued Tuesday.

After working on dribbling and passing on Monday, basketball campers focused on layups and shooting.

“It was awesome. It went real smoothly. The kids had a good time. Everyone competed. It was fun,” said Windsor basketball coach Dan Rathmell.

Wrestling campers reviewed Monday’s moves, the single-leg takedown from a neutral position, inside-leg standup, and tight waist chop breakdown to half-nelson. Tuesday, they added a double-leg takedown from neutral, a donkey standup from bottom, and a cross-waist cradle from top.

Cheer campers worked on different jumps and cheers, and tumbling. On Wednesday, campers will break into groups and create their own cheers.
