REMINDER: An informational meeting about how you could get the next house built by our Building Construction program takes place at 5 p.m. this Tuesday, April 5. The meeting will take place in the Building Construction classroom at the Herkimer BOCES William E. Busacker Complex at 352 Gros Blvd. in Herkimer. Enter the classroom directly by going around to the back parking lot (where you will see the current house the class is building). A lottery drawing will determine who will receive the house to be built by the program during the 2022-23 school year for completion by June 2023. The selected homeowner pays the cost of materials and transportation of the house from Herkimer BOCES to its location. The labor is provided for free by high-school juniors and seniors under the supervision of Building Construction instructor John Martin. If you have any questions, contact Martin at 315-867-2600 or jmartin@herkimer-boces.org. For more info, read an article about this here: https://www.herkimer-boces.org/article/695229

Instructional coach Jennifer Stanton and Coordinator of Instructional Support Services Sheri Perry led teachers through two workshops on Thursday. Teachers engaged with strategies for phonological awareness and phonics instructional strategies during these workshops. Participants shared that the most valuable part of the day was "the activity examples we engaged with" and "the discussions with other teachers, use of time to do our own research and planning." Participants also reported that the workshop was "well organized" and that "it was helpful, and the content was appropriate for my grade level and student needs."
