March 2014


MARCH 11, 2014


FROM THE DESK OF THE SUPERINTENDENT Dear Students, Faculty, Staff, Parents, and Community Members, As we move into the month of March, we are quickly approaching on many levels, one of the most critical periods of our 2013-2014 school year. First, students and teachers are preparing in earnest for the upcoming New York State Common Core Assessments (Grades 3-8). While there has been much debate swirling around the NYS Common Core Standards, as an educator and parent, I say to you with confidence that these standards are beneficial for the educational well-being of your children. This renewed commitment to raising expectations for the purpose of ensuring college and career readiness is something we can and should all embrace. Please do not allow perceptions, or maybe even in some cases realities, about a flawed roll-out plan, teacher evaluation, or student data security, be confused with the higher expectations of learning that the Common Core Standards address. To all of our students, parents, and teachers, I wish you the very best in the coming weeks as you prepare for the NYS Common Core Assessments. Please do not place unnecessary stress upon yourselves, as I realize that a single exam is not the end-all in terms of quantifying the learning that takes place on a regular basis within our school system. Beyond the Common Core Standards, I see on a daily basis the education of the “entire” child which takes place both in and outside of our classroom walls. It is this holistic approach to education and support of our children that makes me most proud of each and every one of you. March is also a critical time of the year, because we are in the midst of preparing and finalizing our budget for the 2014-2015 school year. As superintendent of this district, please know that I am sensitive to the needs of our district, in particular our students, however, at the same time, I also take seriously the obligation I have to this community to develop a fiscally responsible budget. The development of a school budget is a very delicate balancing act. This process has been far more difficult in recent years due to the economic struggles faced by the State of New York and its citizens. For instance, our district still is projected to receive less state aid than we did back in the 2008-2009 school year. Take a moment and think about that, for seven years, costs of salaries, materials and supplies have increased, as well as the needs of our students, and expectations being placed upon them, however, we are operating with less state than we were back in 2008. This year alone our district is estimated to receive approximately $290,000 less aid as a result of something called the Gap Elimination Adjustment. This GEA, as it is commonly referred to, has cost our district over $4,000,000 in lost aid since its inception in 2009-2010. I commend present and past Boards of Education and superintendents for helping guide us through this challenging period, as well as the community members who have offered their financial support to the district. Finally, I am very pleased to announce that we are making great progress on the Capital Project approved by the community back in May, 2013. Updated and energy efficient heating and cooling controls are in the process of being installed throughout district facilities. These much needed controls should allow us to provide consistent heating and cooling to our buildings and classrooms, and at a reduced energy cost. We also have received approval to move forward with the installation of a new camera monitoring system. The extensiveness of this system will provide better supervision both inside and outside of all of our school complexes, thereby improving student and school safety. Thank you to everyone for granting us the opportunity to make these much needed capital improvements. In closing, I would like to remind everyone that Board of Education meetings occur on the first and third Tuesday of each month. If you would like to learn more about the Bolivar-Richburg Central School District, I urge you to attend a meeting. If, however, these days are not convenient for you, please never hesitate to call, email, or schedule an appointment to meet with me, as your questions and insight are always welcomed and appreciated. Yours in Education,

John R. Marshall Superintendent of Schools

HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL’S NEWS Dear Students, Families, and Community Members: I would like to commend all of our students for their efforts in extracurricular activities. From the arts to sports, our students do their best in these activities. Our winter sports recently finished, and our student athletes were once again displaying those traits that are most important, which are fairness, hard work, teamwork, and fun. Ours teams don’t win every game, but we’re the winners every time in the sportsmanship

department; and we should all be proud of them. Our music department has done a great job with concerts, and our theater group just completed a wonderful presentation of Treasure Island. I would love to see more community members at events. Even if you don’t have students in the district any longer, you are always welcome to attend our events, which are always very entertaining and extremely affordable! Middle School Testing is Quickly Approaching Here are the dates for New York State’s Grades 3-8 testing: English Language Arts: Mathematics: 8th Grade Science:

Tuesday, April 1 to Thursday, April 3 Wednesday, April 30 to Friday, May 2 Monday, June 2nd. Performance test (lab) will be at the end of May.

The 3-8 tests are quite different than Regents exams in that results are not part of a student’s grades for particular courses. Even though they don’t count for part of a course grade, they are extremely important for you and your child because the results allow everyone to have a better idea of your child’s strengths and areas in need of improvement. Please encourage your child to do his or her best on the tests. The results also allow us to know if content is being covered and how well it is being covered by our teachers, but the most important reason is what I mentioned above, which is quality information concerning your child’s progress. There are quite a few testing days, but no more than ninety minutes are used each day for this purpose. Most students are usually done in a shorter time frame. If you have any questions about the tests, please call or email either me or your child’s teacher. Thank you for your support of our school and especially your child’s education. Direct line: 585-928-2987 Main office: 585-928-2901 Email: Sincerely,

Tim Houseknecht Secondary Principal

ELEMENTARY PRINCIPAL’S NEWS Dear Parents/Guardians, Many times educators are asked by parents, “What can I do at home to help my child be successful at school?” The answer to this is quite simple, Read with your child every day! Throughout the reading process, praise your child, ask questions about the story, visualize the story, offer information, share personal feelings, and relate the story to real life. Most of all enjoy the story together and let your child see that reading is fun. This is a special time together! March has brought us a “Seuss Celebration” here at BRCS Elementary for Read Across America week! On Thursday, February 27, we had our kick-off celebration with many fun activities planned and ran by the elementary Dr. Seuss committee and high school students. Thank you to all that attended and helped out, the students really enjoyed this! The students participated in many fun activities the week of March 3rd to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss. The students had celebrity readers in their classrooms, crazy/mis-matched shoe day, crazy hair day, wacky outfit day, Thing 1 and Thing 2 day and pajama day! Those were some wild and crazy days!! Character Education: The character trait for the month of March is HONESTY. Please make sure to discuss with your child what it means to be honest and display good examples of this at home. The home-school connection is critical to ensuring a well-rounded student! i-Ready Instruction: Our kids continue to work on i-Ready instruction here at school to help with remediation and enrichment in the areas of reading and math. Please encourage your son/daughter to continue instruction at home. Talk with your child about i-Ready and explore the program with your child. If you need more information about this, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher. Upcoming NYS 3-8 Testing Dates: ELA: April 1-3 Math: April 30-May 2 Science (4th grade only): May 21-30 (performance) and June 2 (written) **Please make sure your child gets a good night sleep and a healthy breakfast on these testing dates.

Penn York College Night, the premier college night in our area, will once again be held at St. Bonaventure University on Monday, April 7th, from 6:30 - 8:30 P.M. in the Reilly Center Gymnasium. Over one hundred colleges and other educational institutions will be represented this year. Students and parents have the opportunity to speak with college representatives, receive college brochures and financial aid information. I cannot stress how important it is for college-bound students, particularly juniors, to attend this program. Since many of the colleges in attendance will not visit our school during the school year, this may be the only chance to speak with a particular college’s representative locally. Programs for this event will be available in the high school guidance office and will be handed out to all juniors. FINANCIAL AID REMINDERS FOR SENIORS Seniors have been reminded to be sure that they have filed the correct financial aid applications to the colleges to which they have applied. In addition to all colleges requiring the FAFSA, some colleges have their own application and, more importantly, its very own filing deadline. Students should call their college financial aid department to verify forms and deadlines. We have several good financial aid brochures available for parents in our guidance office or, go to the FAFSA website at Students who are New York State residents who plan on attending a college within New York State are reminded to file your TAP (Tuition Assistance Program) applications to try and qualify for up to $5000 of free grant money toward college at We would be glad to help you with questions regarding financial aid if you would like to call our office at 928-2985. SAT AND ACT DATES FOR COLLEGE-BOUND JUNIORS A few years ago the SAT and ACT tests both added a writing section to their assessments. The SAT includes a required writing section that will consist of multiple choice questions and a 25-minute essay. The ACT also includes a writing section; however, the writing section is optional. If a student takes the ACT without the writing test the test fee is $36.50, with the writing part the fee is $52.50. I recommend that students find out if the college they plan on attending requires the writing section...typically, they do not. I will soon be meeting with all juniors to set up their senior year schedules. At those meetings I have stressed the importance for them to take either the SAT or ACT this spring (both, if they can afford it). Either one of these tests will be required by virtually every four-year college and by some two-year colleges. Most colleges will accept the SAT or the ACT test for admissions and scholarship reasons. Application guidelines are available in the high school guidance office and then students register on-line. The information below will be helpful... TEST SAT SAT ACT

TEST DATE May 3rd June 7th June 14th

REGISTRATION DUE April 4th May 9th May 9th

TEST FEE $51.00 $51.00 $36.50/$52.50 (plus optional Writing test)

Students should register for these tests on-line at for the ACT and for the SAT. I am glad to assist if students run into technical problems while trying to complete their registrations. If a student receives free or reduced lunch, I am able to give him or her a fee waiver which waives the fees to take the SAT and/or the ACT exam twice. Students need to request fee waivers in person at the Guidance Office.

On a final note, as many of you know, our education system as we know it is undergoing some major changes. One major change is the implementation of the Common Core State Standards for grades Pre-K through 12th grade in ELA and Math. The standards will help all students across NYS learn the same skills. This will make sure that they are ready for college and careers. To help our students achieve success in this endeavor, we have begun implementing the ELA and math modules here at BRCS Elementary. Our teachers have been doing an amazing job gradually implementing and adapting the new modules to fit our students. You may have noticed the new techniques and strategies our students are using in math. In ELA, our students are reading more non-fiction and informational text. This process has been gradual because we want our kids to learn and succeed. It is not an overnight change! Our students and teachers are doing an excellent job adapting to these changes, and I want to thank them! Also, when you get a chance, please thank them too! For more information on the Common Core Standards, please click the link below for helpful parent and family resources:

Bolivar-Richburg Central School News continued... ATTENTION JUNIORS: NATIONAL COLLEGE FAIRS TO BE HELD IN BUFFALO AND ROCHESTER The National College Fair will be held at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014 from 9AM - 12PM and 6 - 8:30PM and on Wednesday, April 9th from 9AM - 12PM. About 200 major colleges from all over the United States will be sending representatives to speak with students in grades 1012. For a complete overview of this college fair go to ncfstudent. Students may go to this website to pre-register before attending the event. By pre-registering, students can print a bar coded confirmation sheet to be used as an electronic ID. At the event, students can have a college scan their bar code to get all the student’s information, eliminating the time and hassle for students to fill out inquiry cards for colleges...a really neat idea! Flyers for this college fair are located in the Guidance Office. The Rochester Fair will be held on Sunday, March 16th from 1 - 3:30PM and on Monday, March 17th from 9AM - Noon at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center as well.

their options for music, they can choose between band, orchestra, and choir. The music slips will be due in the guidance office by March 21st.

Eat a good breakfast and think positive thoughts so that you do your best work on these important state assessments! Please do not hesitate to call me if you have questions regarding state testing.

9TH THROUGH 11TH GRADERS TO SELECT COURSES FOR THE 2014-15 SCHOOL YEAR EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE NEWS During the months of March through May, all 9th through 11th graders will Ms. Renyck sit down with me to select courses for next school year. Parents are required to sign The bulk of geosphere information is completed. We will tie it into the student schedule request form to show approval of the courses selected. However, parents are more than welcome to set up an appointment to be present current topics as often as we can, but we are now focusing our studies on when I schedule your child. Please e-mail me at or the Solar System and universe beyond. Astronomy is an exciting (but in call me at 928-2985 if you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s choice reality, complicated) topic for many students. We will only skim the surface

of courses for next year. SUMMER SCHOOL GRADING A reminder to parents that according to state regulations schools must combine the school-year average with the summer school average before determining if the student receives credit (passes) the course. Bolivar-Richburg’s formula counts the school-year grade 50% and the summer school grade at 50%. For example, a student who fails a course with a 60 during the school year will have to get at least a 70 in summer school to pass the course. A student who fails a course with a 50 during the school year will have to get at least an 80 in summer school to pass the course. We will have a grid available for students/parents that shows exactly what grade a student needs to earn in summer school in order to pass a course. This will be sent to each student who attends summer school. We want students to see how their school-year grade affects summer school. If your child is not passing a course right now, we ask you to encourage him or her to continue to work hard in that class. We do not want students to give up during the school year and bank on passing the course in summer school because now, as you can see, the school-year average greatly affects the summer school

as new discoveries are being made all of the time and true astronomy requires a solid understanding of high level mathematics and physics. For those interested, there are many great astronomy websites. Here are my top 3 favorites: Spaceweather is a great site for various topics but especially for tracking Sun activity and aurorae. is a great site for current events in all astronomy topics. It has a great search function so that you can learn more about the topic of your choice. We all know about our own space agency, NASA. Few of us refer to other great space agencies. The European Space Agency frequently collaborates with other space agencies, including NASA, on big projects. See what the Europeans are doing in space. Check out the Canadian, Indian, and Chinese space programs while you are at it. On another note, it’s never too soon to start thinking about the Regents Exam. A good place to start is with online practice tests. The following site links to a page that includes all past exams. Within the exam, students can mouse over a “question hint” box to help them determine the answer. Answers to the tests are also included. See the exams here:

As always, please contact me if you have any concerns. I can be reached by email, phone, or in person by appointment.

6TH GRADE NEWS Mrs. Childs Like all of you, we here at BRCS are asking, “When will the temperatures warm up?” And like you, we have no idea. So, we stay warm by working hard in our classes every day. It’s working too; our students are doing fantastically! I am very proud of our 6th grade students. Some of them are so helpful and caring to their classmates. I want to throw out a big “thank you” and “I’m proud of you” to Caleigh Sisson, Amber Bucher, Jacob Ford, and Jordon McDonald. These four students were caught being helpful and assisting other students throughout the school days. (Now, this is a good reason to get caught doing something!) I am so proud to be teaching here at BRCS! For the month of February, I have chosen the following students as my students of the month. Makayla Kreamer is a very nice young lady who tries hard to do everything she possibly can to help other students. Her calming attitude helps to alleviate any issues that may arise. She works hard in all her classes and does what is asked of her. My other February student of the month is Gavyn Neudeck. Gavyn is a pleasant young man who eagerly comes to school and the desire to do his best is evident in all his classes. He appears to enjoy school and is willing to offer a helping hand whenever it is needed. I am very proud to be able to work with these two young students. Because of them, and their classmates, this has been one of the best years I have ever had!

Special Snack Day for Valentine’s Day!

Bringing Winter Inside to the Water Table!

MARCH 11, 2014



The Digital Media class had the awesome opportunity to meet and talk to local artist, Eric Jones. Mr. Jones is a graduate of Richburg High School and is a professional caricature artist for an online company that he co-owns. His website, is the top caricature website on the Internet today. Mr. Jones graciously tore down his home studio and brought it in for the high school kids to see how he works and the way he approaches his projects. He stayed the entire morning, meeting with three different classes and over 30 students. Mr. Jones took half of each class to talk to the students about the importance of digital media jobs in our current economy and how vital it is to stay motivated, focus on a specific goal, and diligently work at consistently making yourself better. He answered questions, talked individually with students, and offered personal tips to those students who were interested in pursuing art as a career. He then took the second half of the class to sit down and do an actual demonstration, breaking down each of his procedural steps, explaining how he works on the computer, and completing a final illustration in a little under 15 minutes. The Digital Media class at Bolivar-Richburg began last year with a handful of daring, but focused students. In a little over a year, with help from our Technology Department, (Amanda McDonnell and Colby Allen) and the backing of our Administration and Board of Education, we have installed a state-of-the-art Macintosh Lab with over 20 new iMacs. The Digital Media class has blossomed from 7 kids last year to almost 35 students this year. The Digital Media class would like to thank Mr. Jones for his time and his unselfish decision to become involved in the education of our youth. It is a unique opportunity to be able to have such a talented and willing professional artist, especially one that has decided to share his talents in hopes that it might ignite the next local artist on their journey to becoming a successful artist. Thank you, Mr. Jones...we look forward to working with you again!

the holidays by sharing our traditions and learning about how other people celebrate at this time of year. We did some research on Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. We enjoyed some cooking projects and activities to go along with these traditions. The students enjoyed making their own wrapping paper to wrap a “special” gift for their parents. A visit from Santa was the highlight of the month! In January we welcomed in the New Year! We added our last names on our attendance board and started printing our last name. We talked about Martin Luther King, explored the world of dinosaurs, and did a unit on measurement--including measuring ourselves with blocks. It was such a cold month that we couldn’t enjoy the outdoors, so we brought the outdoors inside! We filled our water table with snow and enjoyed building snowmen in the comfort of our classroom. February started off with a celebration of Groundhog Day! We learned many interesting facts about groundhogs, made models of groundhogs from ‘groundhog dough,’ made groundhog puppets, created groundhog burrows and experimented with shadows. We learned about the Chinese New Year (the year of the horse) and the Chinese culture. We all dressed up for our Chinese New Year parade, headed with a glamorous dragon! Valentine’s Day was celebrated with a special snack we made to share with our friends. We celebrated the winter Olympics by skating on wax paper in the community room--we all won gold medals! It was an exciting day at Pre-K when we added our 100th link to our “days in school” chain! We did a variety of 100 day activities and reminisced through pictures of the 100 great days at Pre-K. March will be an exciting month! We started off by celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday. We did several activities with a variety of his rhyming books. Our favorite was making ‘oobleck’ after reading “Bartholomew and the Oobleck.” Painting our feet for a “Pre-K Foot Book” was also right up there! The students became authors and illustrators of their own rhyming book--which they could read! We are planning a trip to Shea’s Performing Arts Center to see “Sesame Street Live” on March 7th! We’re so excited!! Throughout the months, we have enjoyed Mrs. Pratt’s stories at our Pre-K Library and our trips to the Bolivar Free Library with wonderful stories from Mrs. Fuller! Thanks to both of them for opening our minds to the unending world of books! Our “Barnes and Noble” shelf has also exposed us to many amazing children’s authors and illustrators.

SECOND GRADE Miss French, Mrs. Livingston, Ms. Miles, Miss Scoville... Second graders have been working very hard the past few months! In reading, the students have been busy learning all about friendship, how to communicate with others who might not speak our language, a tricky spider named Anansi, George Washington Carver, and the life cycle of pumpkins and frogs. We have read a variety of genres that include animal fantasy, fables, realistic fiction, and informational text. Students are learning how to identify the main idea, compare and contrast characters, cause and effect. Please continue to read together at home for at least 20 minutes every night. In math, students are working hard on developing their understanding of addition and subtraction within 1000 using a variety of strategies. Students have also been learning how to answer one and twostep word problems within 200. Second graders are learning how to add and subtract 3-digit numbers using the arrow way, number bonds, place value chips, mental math, vertical algorithm, and tape diagrams. Our second graders are doing a great job in math and really have a good understanding of addition and subtraction. Students are continually working on mastering their math facts with sums to 20. In writing, students have been diligently working on writing “how to writing”. Students have been learning how important details are, especially when writing specific steps for their reader to follow in order to complete a task. Some of our how to writing topics have included: how to blow a bubble, how to make their favorite sandwich, how to make s’mores, and how to eat an Oreo cookie. Happy birthday to all those students who celebrated a birthday in January, February and to those who will celebrate in March!

KINDERGARTEN Mr. Butler, Miss Glover, Mrs. Lovell, Mrs. Mitchell... Our themes for January were life cycles, friendships, from seeds to plants, and chameleons. We read the stories: See How We Grow, Farfallina and Marcel, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, From Seed to Plant, The Tiny Seed, and Seeds. The students worked on compare and contrast, plot, and cause and effect along with the stories in reading. In February, the students worked with the stories: The Mixed-Up Chameleon Hide, Clyde, Bunny Day and My Lucky Day. Our themes were growing and changes as well as adventures. The comprehension skills for February were sequence, cause and effect, and main idea. We will continue to work on adventures in March with the stories: One Little Mouse, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, If You Could Go to Antarctica, and Abuela. The students will work on sequencing, characters, classifying and categorizing, and setting. In math, we have worked very hard with numbers. The students completed units on numbers from 0 to 20 and addition. We are currently working on subtraction. Our next unit will be composing and decomposing numbers 0 to 10. Please continue working with your child on addition and subtraction facts to 5. This will help to increase fluency. The letters we have been working on are Rr, Dd, Kk, Oo, Hh, Ll, consonant blends, Gg, and Ee. They have accomplished so much. These children have really started the new year off on the right foot! Please continue working on blending and sight words with your child at home. We would like to congratulate the students who have been the student of the month: Miranda Jandrew, Devin Lananger, Elizabeth Learn, Avery Hoffman , Kaci Smallwood , Andrew Plants , Ma’Kenzie Mathews , Maleya Ayers, Ayden Music, Sydney Wilber, Starlyn Kisel, and Kya Lutes.

FIRST GRADE Mrs. Farwell, Mrs. Ferris, Mrs. McClellan, Mrs. Scott... What a cold and snowy winter it has been - the perfect winter for staying indoors and developing those reading skills! Hopefully, you had a chance to get out and enjoy the winter weather. We can now look forward to spring and the changes this season will bring. Speaking of changes, the first grade recently finished their third reading unit, which focused on changes. First, we discussed how people and their lives can change. Then, we discussed changes you can find in nature. We discussed life cycles of plants and insects in science class to go along with our theme. In Unit 4, we will read stories that focus on the theme of treasure. What things are treasures to you? In math, the students concluded Module 2. We are beginning Module 3, which focuses on measurement. We will then move on to Module 4, which discusses place value with addition and subtraction concepts to 40. Keep practicing those math facts at home! In science, we will be discussing rocks, fossils, and dinosaurs. There are many fun activities that accompany this unit! Mrs. McClellan is an avid rock collector and enjoys this topic the most. March brings some fun days to celebrate as well. The beginning of March will be spent observing Read Across America Week, which coincides with Dr. Seuss’ birthday. St. Patrick’s Day is March 17, and the 120th day of school will be observed at the end of March. The First Grade Team wishes everyone a wonderful spring!

Mrs. Cawley, Mrs. Rickicki, Miss Weitzel... Third grade math is all about fractions at the moment. We are using the New York State modules for instruction. Things might look a little different than what you are familiar with. If you’d like some help, the following web sites might be useful: The state test is also fast approaching so please practice those math facts, especially multiplication. We are also using the New York State modules for reading. You might hear your child using a few different terms, such as “gist” or “close reading”. The gist is the main idea of the text. When we do close reading, we are looking for evidence and details. Did you know that studies show that children who read at least 20 minutes each night do better in school and have larger vocabularies? Not only that, reading before bed is a great way to slow things down after a busy day. The following students celebrated their birthdays in January: Gavan Dickerson, Rafe Orr, Alexis Learn, Evan Pinney, Samantha Bucher, Trent Sibble, Hunter Walp, Trey Taylor, and Seth Barnard. Our February celebrants were Ethan Jones and Maddox Day . Benjamin Kisel, Guinny Coats, Danica Yates and Lillian Nease celebrate in March. The Students of the month from Mrs. Cawley’s room were Emma Farrell, Ben Kisel, and Natalie McDowell. Those chosen from Mrs. Rickicki’s room were McKinlee Harris and Madigan Harris .

FOURTH GRADE Mr. Feuchter, Mrs. Perry, Mr. Pruch... News from Mr. Pruch: Some of our recent highlights--in reading we’ve been working in our Ready NY Informational text sections, on topics like text structure and comparing firsthand and secondhand accounts of the same event; in science we did a brief density unit, with activities both in school and at home; in 2nd Step we’re working on problem-solving, including solving problems that occur on the playground; and for literature, we’re reading the classic The Hundred Dresses. During advisement, we have been spending one of the two days reviewing the fraction concepts Mr. Feuchter is teaching and the other day reading aloud from our basal readers, a variety of genres. For more detailed information, please check Mr. Pruch’s web page and read the weekly notes that are posted there. News from Mrs. Perry: The 4th grade authors have been putting their pens to the paper as they finished the writing unit on narratives. A great big thank you goes out to Mr. Bogey in the computer lab for helping the kids publish their stories! We will continue with our Writer’s Workshop sessions as we put our finishing touches on our “How To’s” by the end of the month. The kids are really looking forward to celebration day when they get to share their published pieces! News from Mr. Feuchter: We have been working on finding equivalent fractions using multiplication and division, keeping in mind our golden rule. The golden rule is “what you do to the numerator you must do to the denominator.” The students have done a great job of using an area model or tape diagram to show the shift from one fraction to the next, whether it be multiplying or dividing. Fractions are a challenging topic, so I commend them for putting forth their best effort and really getting a good grasp on them. We will be focusing our attention on creating a number line and correctly placing fractions with different denominators on the number line. In the coming weeks, we will be using our iReady books for our practice tests, which will be preparing us for the state test from April 30 through May 2. Students of the Month for the past three months have been Chloe Gilliland, Lacie Bulkley and Sabrina Natrigo in Mr. Pruch’s room. From Mrs. Perry’s room, Trinity Allen , Owen Vennard , and Destiny Cantrell were all named students of the month. Camdyn McDonell, Madison Sisson, and Paityn Johnston were chosen from Mr. Feuchter’s group. Way to go!

FIFTH GRADE Mr. Conklin - READING... Mr. Conklin would like to thank all the fifth graders for a nice first half of the year. I have seen most of the students working hard, giving me their best effort and growing as students. We have started the third module in reading. We will be reading about Jackie Robinson and other sport figures that have made contributions to our country. After state exam, we will be learning about tsunamis and earthquakes in module four.

TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT REMINDER Dear Parents and Guardians: The Transportation Department at BRCS would like to thank everyone for all of your help in making the transportation of your children as efficient and safe as possible. As a reminder, we are continuing with our policy of one pick-up/ one drop-off location. In the event that someone will not be at the designated drop-off location, make sure arrangements are made for another adult to be at that designated drop-off location. Please recognize the importance of communicating in writing and in advance any transportation information. Changes made after 2:00 p.m. cannot be guaranteed. This policy greatly helps ensure that each student is dropped off at the proper location. Thank you again for your continued support. Feel free to call me if you need to discuss any transportation issues. Ann Feuchter Transportation Supervisor Bolivar-Richburg Central School * According to the Commissioner of Education, a school district does not transport children to more than one location (even when that student’s parents are divorced). There is no statutory or regulatory requirement that a district transport a student to different places on different days of the week. Each student may have only one designated pick-up point and one designated drop-off point.

Mrs. Smith & Miss French - ELA... ELA class has been filled with lots of reading and writing! We continue to read interesting stories from the Ready NY book. The writing genre that we are focusing on now in 5th grade is informative/explanatory writing. Students have written “How To” and “All About” essays. We are also preparing for the upcoming state tests that will be from April 1st - 3rd. We have had three more students chosen as “Student of the Month” in our classroom. All three have exhibited respectfulness and responsibility. Congratulations to Kelsey Pacer, Nick Roberts, and Olivia Marshall!!

Last year, a young bald eagle fledged from a nest within the city limits of Pittsburgh for the first time in perhaps 200 years or more. And in the months that led up to that moment, hundreds looked on from a distance. This year, a pair of eagles is nesting near the same site and countless more onlookers can follow along - this time with a bird’s-eye view, and from within the comfort of their own homes. The Pennsylvania Game Commission, in cooperation with Pix Controller Inc., has installed a video camera high above a nest two bald eagles have built along the Monongahela River in what is known as the Hays section of Pittsburgh. Live footage from the camera is being streamed on the Game Commission’s website. The eagle pair’s appearances at the nest have become more and more frequent since the livestreaming began in late December. And on late Wednesday afternoon, something else appeared - a freshly laid egg. The hope, of course, is that a healthy eaglet will fledge the nest, and the camera will capture every second of it. There are no guarantees the story will have a happy ending. But the live stream offers a rare, real-life look at an unfolding natural wonder. Streaming footage is available on the homepage of the Game Commission’s website, Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the “Play” icon to see realtime footage of the nest. In good weather conditions, the live stream will be available round-the-clock. In colder temperatures, the video equipment must be shut down for brief periods, so if you have trouble accessing the live stream, just check back later. The nest featured on the live stream was built new in recent months after a branch gave way under the nest used in the same area last year.

Ryan Oswald Publisher Tioga Publishing Co.

Last year’s nest didn’t offer as up-close a view, though many people would congregate regularly along a nearby bicycle trail to view the nest through binoculars. Because there wasn’t a good vantage point inside the nest, however, eagle-watchers could only judge from the mating pair’s changed behavior that an eaglet had been hatched. It took weeks to confirm suspicions. With the camera in place, however, online viewers were able to verify the exact moment an egg was laid. Video of the egg being laid has been posted to YouTube, and can be found easily by searching “Hays eagles egg.” Other highlights from the nesting attempt so far also have been posted to the site. Nest etiquette While viewers always are welcome online, those making trips to view bald-eagle nests in person are reminded to keep their distance. Different pairs of eagles have different levels of tolerance for human activity near nests. Nests like the one in Hays, which are built in spots with a lot of surrounding bustle, often offer opportunities to view from a distance without invading the eagles’ comfort zone. But federal safeguards exist to protect nesting eagles, and persons encroaching a 660-foot perimeter around a nest are in violation of federal law. Signs are posted around many known nest sites, but the rules apply regardless of whether signs are posted. Approaching an eagle nest too closely could frighten off the adults and cause them to abandon the nest or prevent them from keeping eggs at the proper incubating temperature. Frightened eaglets might also jump from the safety of a nest, then have no way to return. More tips on nest-viewing etiquette can be found on the bald-eagle page of the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s website, Bald eagles in Pennsylvania The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners at its January meeting gave final approval to a proposal to remove the bald eagle from the state’s list of threatened species. Game Commission staff in September recommended the change based on the bald eagle’s remarkable recovery in Pennsylvania, and the fact that the commission’s bald-eagle management plan calls for upgrading the bald eagle to “protected” status when all of four criteria measuring the health of the state’s bald-eagle population have been met for a five-year period. Removing bald eagles from the state threatened species list neither hinders eagle populations in Pennsylvania nor knocks off course the species’ comeback here, said Game Commission endangered-bird biologist Patti Barber. The bird continues to be protected under the federal Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (Eagle Act), the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the Lacey Act. Under the Eagle Act, those who harm or disturb eagles are subject to a civil penalty of up to one year in jail or a $5,000 fine for their first offense, and criminal convictions can result in fines as high as $250,000. Additionally, state penalties for disturbing protected wildlife include fines of up to $1,500 and bolster protection for Pennsylvania eagles. Bald eagles have come a long way in the 30-plus years since the Game Commission first began efforts to restore them to Pennsylvania. In 1983, when the Game Commission launched what would become a seven-year restoration program, only three pairs of nesting bald eagles remained in Pennsylvania - all of them in Crawford County in the northwestern part of the state along the Ohio border. This year, there were more than 270 known bald-eagle nests statewide. A 22-minute film celebrating the bald eagle’s success is available at the Game Commission’s website.

How are you feeling? It’s that time of year again--the cold and virus season. Unfortunately I came down with a cold that turned into bronchitis. It took me about three weeks to feel some better. So I was feeling pretty rotten for a while. One day, I managed to make it to my office so I could answer some email and do a little writing. I opened an email from a friend who listens to life through our website at She wrote that her husband would soon have surgery to remove the top lobe of his lung to remove a tumor. They also care daily for her aunt and the husband’s mother. She asked that I pray for healing and strength. I sat very still for a moment after reading her email. I realized that while I had been sick, that bronchitis certainly isn’t life threatening. And that I have so much to be thankful for. I felt better immediately. So the next time you’re not feeling well, open your email or just look around and pray for someone else. It’s great medicine to think of others as you Live Positive.

According to an analysis of 2012 U.S. Census data conducted by the Performance Reference Bureau, roughly 10 percent of the 15.3 million opposite-sex un-married cohabiting part-ners in the United States are between the ages of 55 and 64, while 15 percent are between the ages of 45 and 54. Such figures indicate that living together as an unmarried couple is no longer exclusive to younger couples. The incentives for older, un-

married couples to cohabitate are similar to those for younger ones, but older couples should heed a few financial pointers before deciding to move in together. * Iron out the financial details ahead of time. Young couples who move in together often do so as a precursor to getting married. Such couples do not typically have much in the way of financial assets and, as a result, do not need to come to any formal agreement regarding their finances. Older couples, however, might be bringing a more substantial financial portfolio into the relationship, and these finances can complicate matters. Before moving in together, older couples should document their finances and how household expenses, including a

mortgage if one exists, will be paid. Decisions regarding who will receive the tax breaks you might be eligible for when paying a mortgage should also be considered. Documenting your financial situation can protect your assets should you break up. If these arrangements are not documented, unmarried couples who break up could find themselves in a contentious financial battle not unlike couples going through a divorce. * Maintain some financial independence. Older, unmarried men and women who choose to cohabitate with their partners should still maintain some financial independence after moving in together.

the road, but initially keep these accounts separate to avoid any disputes. Keep paying your own bills, including car payments and credit cards, at the onset as well. * Update certain documents and policies. Upon your death, a partner with whom you cohabitate does not have the same legal rights of inheritance as would a spouse. As a result, it’s important for unmarried individuals who cohabitate with their partners to update their wills, especially if they have been cohabitating for an extended period of time and want their partner to be taken care of in case of their death. In addition to updating information regarding beneficiaries, older men and women might want to update certain information regarding their health, like who should take legal responsibility for medical decisions should one partner become incapacitated. In addition to updating your will, update any

existing life insurance policies and retirement benefits to include your partner if you so desire. * Discuss any changes with your family, especially any children. When you make changes to your will, those changes will affect your beneficiaries. Upon making these changes, discuss them with your existing beneficiaries so your partner does not have to deal with relatives whose feelings

might be hurt upon your death. This might not be an easy discussion, but you will want your partner to have your family as a support system upon your death. Older, unmarried couples are choosing to cohabitate more and more. While the incentives to doing so are numerous, there are some precautionary measures couples should take before moving in together.

The Bolivar Fire Department will be hosting the 2014 Southwestern Association of Volunteer Firemen's Convention from July 30th through August 3, 2014. This is an exciting opportunity for both the Bolivar Fire Department and the community to host this convention. The convention brings members from fire departments and companies from four counties, Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua and Erie. One of the major responsibilities of the host department is to secure enough "dugouts" for the visiting fire departments and companies. Dugouts are places the visiting firefighters, or "tenants," can call home for the duration of the convention. As a part of the event, the visiting fire companies or departments rent garages or lots from local residents to serve as their headquarters during the convention. The garages or lots, better know as dugouts, serve as a meeting place where food and refreshments are served to the members and their guests. Each fire department or company is required to sign an agreement between the land owner, the host department and them as the "tenants". The tenant is required to comply with the terms of the agreement and to pay a specific amount of "rent" based on the property size. It is the property owner's discretion if they wish to keep the money paid by the visiting company or you may choose to donate it to the hosting fire company (Bolivar Fire Department). We are asking for your support by renting your garage or lot. If you are interested in hosting a fire department or company with a dugout at your residence, please contact Danielle Ostrum at 585-928-5041 PORTVILLE FREE LIBRARY HOURS: Hrs.: Mon., & Thurs. 1-8pm; Tues. 10am-5pm; Frid. 9am-5 pm; Sat. 10am-1pm. tf THE BOLIVAR COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY Located at the United Methodist Church, 80 Friendship St., is a volunteer ministry of the Bolivar churches. It seeks to provide emergency food assistance and support for families and individuals who demonstrate an immediate need. To receive assistance, please call Connie Taylor, 585928-2386 or Gene Robak, 585-928-1814. Call ahead for an appointment. Pantry is open Tuesday nights 4pm-7pm; Thursday afternoons 2pm-5pm. tf

The Murder Mystery hosted by the Bolivar Library on Saturday, February 15th was a wonderfull success. We had a sold out event and the guests loved the idea of being involved in solving the mystery. This was such a fun-filled evening and the suspects did an amazing job staying in character and providing the necessary clues to help solve the murder. The guests worked in teams and their questions, laughter and solutions were proof that the evening was fun and enjoyable. We heard many positive comments such as “ this event was so much fun and a great time of year to offer a program like this”, and “I hope this is an annual event”! Part of the murder mystery was a delicious dessert buffet that was provided by Natalie Kottwitz. This was a great evening with great people and great desserts! We would like to thank all that attended our first event of this kind. Your support is appreciated. f

DOLLAR STRETCHER TIPS-A WALLPAPER TOUCH We recently put wallpaper borders up around the top of the walls in our bathroom. I also removed the light switch cover, cut-tosize and wrapped a piece of the border over the front, “laminated” with wide clear plastic tape (to keep paper clean and washable), trimmed switch opening and screw holes, and remounted the plate. Then, I did the same with the GFCI outlet cover (just above the vanity level). I have a lovely pot of tulips on my bathroom light switch cover and some ivy around the GFCI!

At night, raise the temperature or turn off the whole house air, and use the bedroom window unit for the night. This has paid for the unit that we have in our bedroom many times over. -TFS

DOLLAR STRETCHER TIPS WINTER WARMTH Keeping the furnace low to save energy is one of my wintertime goals. So, it is important to have throws for most seats in our home. I sewed up some envelop pillow covers for cozy throws that match the room decor. When the kids are done snuggling under a cozy blanket, they fold the blanket and stash it in the pillow cover. The room stays tidy, and the blankets are right where they need them the next time they need to settle in. These are also good for extra bedding on a single bed. For extra quilts, I make large pillow covers and prop them against a wall for a cozy daybed. Plus, this eliminates storage. -J. REPLACING JUICE BOXES We all know how expensive boxes/pouches of juice can be and how many are not 100% juice. I purchase large multi-packs of eightounce water bottles and mix my own juice from generic concentrates to fill the bottles. They cost a lot less, hold more juice than the boxes/ pouches, and can be washed and reused (though not a huge expense if lost or damaged on occasion). -Elaine in NJ

DOLLAR STRETCHER TIPS GIVING IT THE BRUSH-OFF I use a 2” cheap, clean, dry paint brush to clean hard-to-clean items. It works great on keyboards, plastic window shades, and furnace grates. -Jolynn EASY CAR DETAILING When you’re cleaning out your car and unable to get the hard-toreach dirt and crumbs out of the cracks, just use an old makeup (blush) brush. It works like a charm! -Linda EASY ORGANIZED CLOTHING When a new season arrives, I hang all the items with the hangers facing backwards. When I wear and wash the item, I return it to the closet facing the proper way. At the end of the season, it’s super easy to tell which of the items I never wore, and those are the ones I donate for someone else to enjoy. -Suzie JUICY SODA Store-brand club soda is cheap and free of calories. By mixing it with fruit juice, I can save money and still enjoy the fruit juice I love without the high calories. It is also healthier and less expensive than soda, and I have a lot of variety of juices to choose from. -D.W. in Florida MORE THAN A CONDIMENT I have discovered that cayenne pepper has some great benefits, aside from cooking! It is an inexpensive pest repellant. Put a couple of teaspoons of the pepper into a spray bottle, fill with water, shake, and spray. Specifically, animals, such as rodents, do not like it. Spray in suspect areas, including the garbage can. It’s natural, inexpensive, and quite a deterrent. Another use is to keep your feet warm. Sprinkle it in your socks before heading out skiing or snowboarding into the winter chill. You will see it doesn’t take much and your toes and feet do stay quite toasty! -Jeanie W.

Annual Drinking Water Quality Report for 2013 Town of Friendship Water Department - ID #0200319

WHERE DOES OUR WATER COME FROM? In general, the sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. Our water source is wells, which draw from ground water sources. Our wells are: Sunnyside Street Well #1, Pennsylvania Avenue Well #4 and #5, East Main Street Well #2. The water is chlorinated prior to distribution. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive materials, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activities. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agricultural, urban storm water runoff and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. ARE THERE CONTAMINANTS IN OUR DRINKING WATER? In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA describes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. As required by State regulations, we routinely test your drinking water for numerous contaminants. These contaminants include: total coliform, turbidity, inorganic compounds, nitrate, nitrite, lead and copper, volatile organic compounds, total trihalomethanes, and synthetic organic compounds. As you can see by the table below, our system had no violations. We have learned through our testing that some contaminants have been detected; however, these contaminants were detected below the level allowed by the State.

*The level presented represents the 90th percentile of the 10 sides tested. A percentile is a value on a scale of 100 that indicates the percent of distribution that is equal to or below it. The 90th percentile is equal to or greater than 90% of the lead and copper values detected at your water system. In this case, 10 samples were collected at your water system and the 90th percentile values were the values indicated above. The action level for lead was exceeded at one of the sites tested. The action level for copper was not exceeded at any of the sites tested.

Micrograms per liter (ug/l) = Parts per Billion (ppb) Picocuries per liter (pci/l) Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLG’s allow for a margin of safety. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. Milligrams per liter (mg/l): Corresponds to one part of liquid in one million parts of liquid (Parts per Million-ppm). Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL): The level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCL’s are set as close to the MCLG’s as feasible. The Town of Friendship routinely monitors for constituents in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws. We test your drinking water for 27 inorganic compounds, nitrate, nitrite, 60 volatile organic compounds, total trihalomethanes, and 52 synthetic organic compounds. In addition, we test the water for coliform bacteria twice a month. It should be noted that all drinking water, including bottled water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800-426-4791. Our water system serves 1,380 people. The cost of our water to customers is $30.00 for the first 1,000 cubic feet and is $.75 per 100 cubic feet thereafter. IS OUR WATER SAFE FOR EVERYONE? Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-comprised persons such as persons with cancer, undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPS/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lesson the risk of infection by cryptosporidium, giardia and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline. WHY SAVE WATER AND HOW TO AVOID WASTING IT? Although our system has an adequate amount of water to meet present and future demands, there are a number of reasons why it is important to conserve water: • Saving water saves energy and some of the costs associated with both of these necessities of life. • Saving water reduces the cost of energy required to pump water and the need to construct costly new wells, pumping systems and water towers. • Saving water also lessens the strain on the water system during a dry spell or drought, helping to avoid severe water use restrictions so that essential fire fighting needs are met. You can play a roll in conserving water by becoming conscious of the amount of water your household is using and by looking for ways to use less whenever you can. It is not hard to conserve water. Conservation tips include: • Loading your dishwasher to capacity. Automatic dishwashers use 15 gallons for every cycle, regardless of how many dishes are loaded. • Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth. Check every faucet in your home for leaks. Just a slow drip can waste 15 to 20 gallons a day. Fix it up and you can save almost 6,000 gallons per year. • Check your toilet for leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank, watch for a few minutes to see if the color shows up in the bowl. It is not uncommon to lose up to 100 gallons a day from one of these otherwise invisible toilet leaks. Fix it and you save more than 30,000 gallons a year. • Use your water meter to detect hidden leaks. First check the reading on the meter and then simply turn off all taps and water using appliances.Then check the meter after 15 minutes. If it moved, you have a leak. SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS In 2014 we plan to upgrade our fire hydrants and valves in certain areas of the distribution system and water metering system. WATER PUMPED (DELIVERED) - April, May, June - 1,953,573 cubic feet METER READING (WITHDRAWN) - April, May, June - 804,113 cubic feet LOST OR UNMETERED - Reservoir Cleaning, Hydrant Flushing - 1,149,460 cubic feet CLOSING Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our children’s future. Please call our office if you have any questions. 585-973-7779 Robert G. Cummins Town of Friendship, Water Department

STUDENTS TO MARK NATIONAL COURT REPORTING WEEK WITH OUTREACH TO LOCAL VETERANS AND MORE Alfred, NY- Court reporting and captioning students at Alfred State are marking National Court Reporting and Captioning Week, Feb. 16-22, by participating in a national veteran’s oral history project coordinated by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA), the leading organization representing stenographic court reporting and broadcast captioning professionals. As part of the project, Alana Devaul, a senior court reporting student and native of Fulton, will use court reporting methods and equipment designed for capturing, storing and retrieving information to transcribe the service story of renowned local artist Chet Swier of Cuba who served during World War II as a pilot in the Army Air Corps. Swier, a native of Kenmore, NY, was shot down over Germany and was captured as a prisoner of war. Although Swier passed away in 2011, his story was caught on tape during annual trips to Cuba Elementary School where he related his story to the young students. The oral account of his service will be collected and donated to the Library of Congress where it will be preserved as part of American history. Also in celebration of the week, on-campus students will be spending a day at the Allegany County Courthouse where they will shadow official court reporters Jo Ann Tredway of Cuba and Pam Rohrabacher of Wellsville as they “capture the record” in local court cases. The students will also be given a tour of the rest of the courthouse facilities to see how legal documents are created and stored. In addition, court reporting students will be participating in a civic engagement project they’re calling ASC Operation Gratitude. The project will consist of soliciting a variety of items from the Alfred State community to assemble care packages to send to overseas veterans. Included in the packages will be cards signed by members of the student body, faculty, and staff. Students will also

make paracord bracelets (survival bracelets) to send with the care packages. Alfred State’s associate degree and certificate programs in court reporting and captioning are the only NCRA-approved programs in Western New York. Both programs are online and typically take four semesters (including a summer session) to complete. “Court reporting and captioning is a highly technical profession that requires great skill and knowledge,” said Francine Staba, chair of the business department. “These professionals make invaluable contributions to the legal and deaf and hard-of-

hearing communities each and every day.” As a result, career opportunities for new graduates entering the field are plentiful. The profession offers both flexibility and significant income potential. In New York State, for example, the average annual income for reporting professionals is $84,000. Alfred State’s court reporting graduates typically find work in the field within six months of graduation and are qualified to be a closed-captioner for live events, broadcast and videography purposes, freelance court reporters, medical transcriptionists, rapid text entry specialists, and realtime reporters. fb
