Greenwich 8th Grade Technology Classes Launch Homemade Rockets

Last week, students in Mr. Aierstok’s 8th grade Technology classes launched their homemade rockets. The students built their rockets from scratch; crafting their own rocket bodies, parachutes, nosecones, fins and engine mounts. Students were able to make comparisons between different fin styles and nosecone shapes and see which ones worked best. It was a beautiful day to launch and the results were great. You can see some of the rockets below.

 

FFA Members Experience Agri-Tourism

FFA Members Experience Agri-Tourism
On Wednesday, October 2, 2019 NYS FFA District President welcomed over 70 students
from the Greenwich FFA chapter and an additional 100 FFA members to Liberty Ridge Farms in
Schaghticoke, NY. Students were able to experience one of the premiere agri-tourism sites in the
northeast. Using agricultural clues, the FFA members navigated their way through the 11-acre
corn maze. Students also had fun in the giant gerbil wheels, on the giant swings, viewed an array
of farm animals, listened to The Hillbilly Band, and were able to learn where our food comes
from in the Discovery Barn. Students finished the night off eating pizza with their new found
friends from other area FFA Chapters.

Witches Win Grout Invite

Witches Win Grout Invite

 

October 5, 2019 Central Park, Schenectady: The Greenwich Central High School girls cross country team won the large school division of the Grout Invitational, placing six runners ahead of second place Shaker’s fourth runner. CGS Coach Steve Patrick was pleased with the result. “Shaker edged us earlier this season, at Queensbury, so it was nice to turn the tables. We’re not at full strength right now, but our depth still won it for us today.”

 

Brynne Wright set the pace for the Witches, finishing the 2.75 mile course in 16:02.66, for third place. Nina Sgambelluri followed closely behind, in 16:04.40, for fourth. Quinn Collins was sixth (16:38.52), Brooke Wright was eighth (16:49.34), Baily Bain was ninth (16:58.89), Emily Skiff was tenth (17:08.57) and Teagan Wright was sixteenth (17:51.40) in the forty-six runner race.

 

Greenwich will race next at Van Cortland Park, in the Manhattan Invitational, on Saturday, October 12th
