Author Tim Green Visits MCSD

The Middle School and Alden Place welcomed Tim Green, former NFL player turned best-selling author of over 31 books, to Millbrook on May 4th. Students in Mrs. Morton's 6+ classes especially enjoyed preparing & sharing special projects they had created for him in preparation for his visit.

After studying writing at Syracuse University where he was an All American football player, Tim was drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons where he was a top defensive player for eight years.

While Tim played in the NFL, he also studied law and began his writing career. By the time he retired from football in 1994, Tim had already published his first book and become a lawyer. In addition to those two jobs, he began working as a television broadcaster for FOX NFL Sunday and other shows, including Battlebots, Good Morning America, Court TV, A Current Affair, and most recently, Find My Family.

ESL Night 2015

On April 30, English language learners and their families attended the annual spring ESL night at Alden Place Elementary. This time the topic was Let's Grow Healthy Minds and Bodies. Students, their families, and friends went to 5 different stations that promoted healthy bodies and minds. They used, for example, the MAC computer lab for brain teasers, participated in a science experiment using their senses, danced during a Zumba lesson and gave their best at Karaoke. Besides lots of fun and education, the event also promotes awareness for families about services offered in the community. For that, we invited Ms. Frenzel from the Millbrook library who talked about free programs offered. Also, Mrs. Garzetta from Latino Outreach and Mrs. Ribbeck from NED Corps joined the event to promote services they offer for our families. A big Thank You to Marona's Market, Bounce, and Price Chopper for donating gift cards to be raffled off at the event.

Alden Students Learn About Cinco de Mayo

Mrs. Link's and Mrs. Gregor's social studies classes have been studying Latin American Culture and took the opportunity to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, a celebration popular in Puebla, Mexico, commemorating a victory of the Mexican Army against the French. A power point presentation taught students the importance of Cinco de Mayo and afterwards all students enjoyed typical Mexican salsa, chips and home made guacamole. For the guacamole each student had been asked to bring in an item which Mrs. Link then prepared directly in front of the students' eyes. What a great way to incorporate culture into teaching.
