MCSD Faculty, Students & Community Members Plant Trees and Shrubs

The Millbrook Central School District was awarded a Trees for Tribs Grant. This grant provides funding for the planting of over 200 trees and shrubs along the East Branch of Wappinger Creek (between the Millbrook Middle School & Alden Place School).

The purpose of the project is to protect the watershed for Wappinger Creek. The area will also serve as a Science Nature Area for students.

We would like to thank Mrs. Harkenrider & her Middle School students and Mr. Arnstein & his High School students for their help with the planting.

We would like to thank Mr. Michael Rubbo for his help in writing and managing the grant. He was the impetus for our application for the grant. We would also like to thank the Mrs. Jennifer Rubbo, Ms. Beth Roessler, Ms. Beth Ziehl, and Ms. Tess Webb for their help with the project.

AP Chemistry Students Make Soap

Ms. Herring visited our AP Chemistry class to teach students the process of saponification, an organic reaction where soap is produced from a fat and a base. Ms. Herring makes goat milk soap and lotions (Chevreaux) and sells it locally. She shared the experience of making soap with our students so they could see Chemistry come alive!
