Annunciation Students Learn an Egg-cellent Lesson in Physical Science

Annunciation Students Learn an Egg-cellent Lesson in Physical Science

The assignment: Drop an egg to the ground from a second-floor window without cracking the egg’s fragile shell.

That’s exactly what a group of excited fifth-graders at Annunciation School in Elma were charged with this week, and working in small groups, they tried to come up with protective devices that would safeguard the egg on it quick journey.

It was all part of an effort to learn about force and gravitational force, said their teacher, MaryKay Schaub. The groups used items such as bubble wrap, paper and sturdy boxes to protect their eggs. One group even used an umbrella, hoping it would catch the air just right and serve as a parachute of sorts.

Nicholas was selected by the staff and administration from the BOCES career center because he routinely contributes to class discussions and activities with relevance, insight and professionalism. He consistently takes advantage of the educational opportunities available to him through his internships.

"It is evident he truly enjoys attending class and spending time at the VA," said Tillman.

West Seneca East Senior Ready to Get "All Shook Up"

West Seneca East Senior Ready to Get "All Shook Up"

West Seneca East Senior High School is getting “All Shook Up” for this year’s musical production, inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley.

Into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that'll have audience members jumping out of their blue suede shoes with such classics as "Heartbreak Hotel," "Jailhouse Rock," and "Don't Be Cruel."

Set somewhere in the midwest in the 1950s, Chad, (played by Tom Radder) a hip-swiveling, guitar-playing roustabout, is being released from prison ("Jailhouse Rock"). The warden doesn't appreciate a guy like Chad riding into town, playing his music and exciting the local women.
