students looking at books Book Tasting helps students get ready for water unit
To start their ELA unit on water, third-graders in Mrs. Abrahamson's and Ms. Blazavich's classes had a book tasting to explore and read books about water. A book tasting is a fun way for students to sample lots of books and find ones that suit their "taste."  We are so proud of the hard work these students did on the NYS ELA test!

Third-graders at CEA introduced their new study of water by watching the first five minutes of the video, "On the Way to School" and thinking about what they observed.  Throughout this unit, the students will be thinking about and answering the questions, "Where does water come from?" and "What happens when people don't have access to clean water?"

Chef Cosimo Summa came into the TRA Home and Careers classroom to demonstrate knife skills and safety to this quarter's 8th grade students recently.  His presentation was educational, entertaining and inspirational for students.  Chef Cosimo's passion and drive for his craft and profession is clearly evident when he speaks about his background and training as well as his methods for furthering his knowledge and skills in the culinary field.  We look forward to welcoming him back to TRA to judge the 8th grade Home and Career's "Chopped" competition and for future demonstrations in the classroom.

student spinning wheel of chance Seniors learn about life's realities
Our seniors recently learned some valuable life lessons by participating in "Life is a Reality," a hands-on exercise designed to give students a more realistic perspective on what to expect once they enter the workforce.  Students choose a career, receive a salary and then navigate through the realities such as taxes, health insurance and utilities, and spin a wheel that gives them unexpected pitfalls to manage or windfalls to enjoy. The program is designed by Visions Federal Credit Union in partnership with Broome-Tioga BOCES.
