Students attend presentation at the Golub Center in Albany

April 25, 2014  "I'm still haunted by that experience and reminded of it daily. When people are killed, when children are murdered in a school shooting, I remember my time at Buchenwald." This was how Mr. Carl Rosner, creator of the MRI and CEO of Cardio Mag Imaging, Inc and Holocaust Survivor began his presentation.

P-Tech Program Presentation to be held

 March 18, 2014 In our Upper Library Lounge at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, March 25, Michael Dardaris, Principal for HFM BOCES’ new Pathways in Technology (P-Tech) program will be meeting with parents and guardians of eighth grade students to discuss the opportunities provided within the P-Tech program.  P-Tech, set to begin in September, is seeking students who will participate in a progressive, technology-based curriculum to empower students to take control of their learning experience.  HFM BOCES is in the process of designing state-of-the art classrooms at Jansen Avenue School in Johnstown, which will have the feel of a business office.

 Mr. Dardaris recently met with our guidance counselors and administration to discuss his vision for the program. Principal Dardaris informed us that the P-Tech program is targeting students who do not fare well in a traditional, lecture-based classroom and require more project-based, hands-on learning opportunities. Our current eighth grade students will be the first cohort to participate in P-Tech. The objective is for these students to earn their high school diploma and an associate’s degree in just four years. Our Guidance Office will be accepting applications for P-Tech from March 27 until April 10, 2014. Please join us for this informational session on March 25th to learn how P-Tech can help prepare your child for their future.
