Recently, the high school Italian class met with people that had immigrated to the United States from Italy. The students heard their stories of moving here and what it was like in their homeland. The speakers came from a variety of backgrounds including a salt mine worker from Sicily, a military policeman from Rome, a famous artists from Venice. All were immigrants to Rochester during their teenage years, as well as in their 20s and 30s. The students shared a typical Italian lunch with their hosts and enjoyed the conversation and learning experience. High school teacher Jeff Giordano accompanied them on their experience.

Students have returned to classes following a nice Thanksgiving break. For older students participating in athletics this means the winter season is truly gearing up. For instrumental and vocal students this means the concert season is upon us and their final preparations for the holiday concerts has begun. For students it means the near completion of the 15 weeks as time continues to fly by. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher directly if you need to discuss your child’s performance or any other issues.

It is Red Ribbon Week at Wayland-Cohocton Middle School. Students have been remembering to live a healthy, drug-free life through a number of activities. Thursday and Friday will be the last of the dress-up theme days.
A number of important notices have been sent to Wayland-Cohocton families this week. First and foremost is a change to the Thursday go-home early day. The 2:30 p.m. dismissal for all students allowed for collaborative work time for all teachers, however it has proved to also support a number of challenges, primarily because of the loss of valuable time for high school and middle school students to receive extra assistance due to the loss of 13th period during the week.
Whew! Anyone exhausted? Students have completed the first five weeks of school bringing them to the opportunity to look at their progress through the five week progress reporting.
Wayland-Cohocton High School students have begun participating in traditional spirit week activities including theme days allowing them to sport pajamas, togas and costumes to school. The week will culminate on Friday with a pep rally during 12th period.
If you haven’t already received notice: all students will be dismissed on Friday, Sept. 28, at about 11:30 a.m. This dismissal will provide the necessary time for teachers to complete requirements for the new teacher evaluations that go into effect this year.
