Summer Program Rundown: July 26
Windsor summer program rundown July 26:
Windsor Strong Academy:
Seven student teams studying a different aspect of what makes a community strong held dress rehearsals for their presentations today. The teams are studying issues such as environment, education, budget and safety.
Presentations will be Thursday, July 27 from 11am to noon at Binghamton University’s Downtown Center. The presentations will be streamed live on the Windsor Central School District Facebook page.
Today the younger students (K-2) went to Nathaniel Cole Park. Students played on the playground, swam and took part in geocaching. Students used their mapping and compass skills to find geocaches (in this case lollipops) hidden in the park. They also needed to solve riddles to find which direction to proceed. Tomorrow students in grades 3-5 will use GPS to find items.
“They have to use comprehension and deductive reasoning,” said Project Lead the Way teacher Eileen Mulcahy. PLTW is the District’s program to establish a K-12 engineering pipeline.
Field Hockey camp:
For the first time this week field hockey campers were able to practice outside, using the fields beside the high school. Campers had modified scrimmages and continued to practice game-like situations.
“I’ve noticed improvement. Their stick work has come a long way. I definitely see the girls in scrimmages taking things we’ve done in drills and using them. You can see them thinking out there,” said Windsor junior varsity coach Becky Adolf.
The semi-pro Broome County Stallions football team visited camp. Class of 2003 Windsor alumnus Jeremy Polhamus is the Owner and Head Coach of the team. You can read more about the visit here.
