2017-18: Week 5

A Solon Salute to these monster-sized radishes, and thank you to all of the students and faculty that did a great job in the garden again this year. We are looking forward to the Fall Harvest Celebration on Oct. 19th.

Liam, Xavier, and Allie check out the radishes in the garden.

A Solon Salute to junior Callie-Lyn Dalley. Callie is currently spending the year abroad in France through the International Rotary Youth Exchange. You can follow her blog at: http://calliefrance.weebly.com/


A Solon Salute to Arthur Kadlec. Arthur has been a huge asset to my programming class. He willingly leaves his own work to help others in the class and is unmatched in his ability to debug our programs. Our class would not run nearly as well without him! (From Ms. Machnik) 

A Solon Salute to Ms. Sarah Squier for planning and organizing our first Saturday college essay writing workshop. Thank you also to Dan Miller-Arsenault, Lissa Knauss, Sue Monmaney, and Kerrin McCadden for helping on the first of two Saturdays this fall.
