Mrs. Donahue Teaches LOTE Teacher How to Incorporate Technology into their Classrooms at BOCES

Mrs. Donahue was asked by Patti Fisher from BOCES to present a workshop for using technology in the LOTE (Language Other Than English) classroom. Mrs. Donahue was paired up with Rod Hooper from BOCES to assist her with the planning process. Mr. Hooper and Mrs. Donahue both thought the conference was a great success as did those who attended their workshop. As a result of the workshop, Mrs. Donahue is still in contact with all of the participants through their use of Google and she is still helping them implement technology in the LOTE classroom.


Within the district, Mrs. Donahue comes up with different ways to incorporate technology into various subjects. Mrs. Donahue spends time on social media to learn about the latest trends and ideas in education. She also answers requests and sends out links and ideas to teachers as they relate to their field of expertise. Mrs. Donahue also is provided time to visit teacher’s classroom and help them to brainstorm ideas and implement technology in their classes. She often puts on small group workshops as requested and these small group workshops always provide time for collaboration and plenty of new ideas for the classroom. We are fortunate to have her expertise at JW Leary.

2nd Round of Data Meetings are Complete at the Junior High

Last week we completed our second round of Data Meetings at the Junior High. In these meetings Math and ELA teachers meet with Intervention staff and Administration and review the progress of all of our students to this point in the school year. We looked at students mid-year STAR scores, quarter averages and recent classroom assessments to evaluate student progress. Based upon these meetings, you may see students potentially moving around within our intervention system.

2nd Quarter 85+ Club

With the second quarter complete we have identified all students in 7th and 8th grade who have achieved an average of 85 or higher in all of their classes. These students hard work is rewarded with events designed to recognize their effort. Our next event is a trip to the Nature Center to take our students snowshoeing and cross country skiing. The students who qualify for the 85+ Club this quarter are:

Valentine’s Day Dance is a Huge Success

On Friday Night February 10, the student council held its annual Valentine’s Day dance. Several hundred of our students came to the dance and everyone had a great time. It is always nice to see our young men and women get together and enjoy our school outside of the school day. Thank you to Mrs. Root and all of our student council members who make this event and all of our events possible.
