Summer Program Recap - August 1

Olympic week began Monday at Windsor’s three elementary schools. Students made Olympic torches using tin foil, toilet paper rolls, and tissue paper. Then, they took part in relay races. Keeping times and tallying scores were also a big part of the activity.

“We’re doing a lot of math,” said Windsor elementary science teacher Eileen Mulcahy-LaChance.
Softball, baseball, and lacrosse sports camps began Monday. Softball players worked through hitting, bunting, and fielding stations.
Coaches divided baseball campers into two groups. 4th-6th graders worked on proper throwing mechanics, hitting mechanics, and fielded ground balls, among other drills. Older players in grades 7-9 fielded ground balls, pop flies, and practiced hitting.

Girls lacrosse players worked on shooting, cradling, and passing with a partner, as well as fielding ground balls. Boys lacrosse players focused much of Monday on drills to improve fielding of ground balls.

Windsor Strong Academy students spent Monday finalizing their future-ready presentations they will give on Thursday. The presentations are mock Instagram posts about their future selves that reflect qualities of civic readiness and how they make their future selves inclusive in their community.

“Will there be pictures of them volunteering, voting, relying on responsible news sources?” said teacher Cole Battaglini.

The Windsor Strong Academy students are making their final trip to the Binghamton University Downtown Center on Tuesday. They will listen to a career-focused panel discussion.
