MCSD Students Shine at FCCLA Nationals!

MCSD's FCCLA chapter qualified 3 students to represent the state of New York at the FCCLA National Leadership Conference in San Antonio. From July 5-11th. Mr. Judge and his students attended leadership workshops; participated in leadership building activities with students from across our state, met and interacted with students from across the country, explored the culture and history of San Antonio, listened to nationally recognized motivational speakers, and participated in STAR Events. This conference had over 7,500 young people from across the country united for one cause; building leadership skills in students through the areas of Family & Consumer Sciences.

As a result of their exemplary efforts, both Andy Outwater and David Haetty (soon to be freshman) earned a silver metal in their events. Competing at the national level was a very rigorous process as the students participating are the "cream of the crop" from each state. They represented Millbrook and our state very well. Mr. Judge would like to thank all of the people who supported their trip. This event was, without a doubt, transformational for everyone involved.

The third graders celebrated their study of the butterfly life cycle with the release of butterflies. The last few weeks the students have watched the caterpillars grow from tiny hatchlings to large caterpillars, morph into chrysalides, and emerge as beautiful painted lady butterflies. Students were able to observe up close as the butterflies drank nectar from the garden in front of the school. What a wonderful way to end the year!

Alden Student Submits Article to Time For Kids Magazine

Jakub Kowalski, a.k.a. Kuba, just submitted an article he wrote for the popular magazine Time For Kids. The magazine is holding a contest to "hire" kid reporters from all over the U.S. to write for next year's issues of TimeFor Kids (TFK). Kuba is an English language learner, currently in 5th grade, who moved to Millbrook from Poland only 3 and a half years ago. His love for writing became evident in every single assignment he would have. Students in Mrs. Wyman's ESL class used TFK articles throughout this past school year, and that is where Kuba read about the contest. He approached Mrs. Wyman who excitedly told him to apply. Please read for yourself what event Kuba chose to write about and what an outstanding job he did writing this article... Good Luck Kuba with your future writing endeavors!
