  • Tech Center Graduates Are Ready for a Bright Future

    Graduates of the Tech Center at Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES are not only ready for college and careers, they are ready for life. That was the consensus of the student speakers at the recent graduation on the BOCES’ Yorktown campus. The graduates represented the 40 programs Tech has to offer. More than 40 Mahopac students attended The Tech Center this year, with many of them earning high honors and awards, including induction into the honor society.

    North Salem student and valedictorian Leah Feniger said she not only feels better prepared for a career in Computer Graphics because of The Tech Center, but she feels better prepared for the practical side of life as well. “We learned about business and finance and even how to do our taxes,” said Feniger.

    Salutatorian Jesse Fleming, also from North Salem, said being a Sports Medicine student enabled him to find himself and discover his desire to become a doctor one day. “The hands-on techniques we learned were inspiring and exciting,” he said, “and I learned more in this class than I have in all four years of high school.”

    Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES District Superintendent James Ryan spoke at the ceremony as did Tech Center Director Cathy Balestrieri and principals Steve Lowery and Jim Bellucci. BOCES board members and area district superintendents were also on hand for the celebration.

    More than 400 students graduated from the Tech Center with training and expertise in such fields as culinary arts, fashion design, computer technology, environmental science, healthcare, computer graphics, digital film, law enforcement, urban forestry, auto mechanics and education.  The program for the graduation ceremony listed pages of scholarships, honors and awards received by the graduating class including top honors in statewide competitions and scholarships from community and professional organizations.

  • Mahopac High School Expands to the Great Outdoors

    Seniors can now spend some time during the waning days until graduation in the new outdoor seating area installed recently at Mahopac High School.

    Thanks to generous donations from the Yearbook Club and the Parent Teacher Organization, the beautiful all-weather area was installed right outside the cafeteria and includes several benches, a picnic table, attractive recycling and trash receptacles as well as matching planters sporting tall flowering plants. The furniture sits on a newly installed stone patio.

    The Site-Based Committee, which includes faculty, administrators, parents and students, came up with the idea to provide the outdoor space last year.

    The space marks the first time high school students will have access to a space outside of the school building. “Students generally rise to the occasion when they are given the freedom to use something like this,” said MHS guidance counselor and Site-Based Committee member Julie Cummins, who added that students have been very respectful of the book nooks installed in the high school last year. “We let the students drive the ideas for the project,” she said, “because it is their school.” Cummins said that she and Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development Dr. Adam Pease designed the space. It will be open select periods of the day for seniors this year and may be expanded to include juniors in the future.

    “Our buildings and grounds staff did a great job with preparing the space and putting in the planters as well,” said MHS Interim Principal John Augusta.

    Senior Jessica Mastropietro, who is on the Site-Based Committee, said she will enjoy using the outdoor seating area, if only for a short time. “I’m excited to roll it out and be able to use it for the rest of the year,” she said.

  • In MHS Science Class, ‘Virtually’ Anything Is Possible

    Living environment students in Jen Cauthers’ class colored in their plant and animal cell diagrams, hovered their phones over them and watched them come to augmented 3D life in class recently. Using the Quiver augmented-reality app, the Mahopac High School students were able to look into their creations in depth in a way previously impossible.

    “It’s fascinating,” said student Makenly Crisman. “It makes the diagram three dimensional, so you can really see everything that is there.”

    Cauthers has been using both virtual reality devices, in which students see a digital re-creation of a real-life setting, and augmented reality devices, which deliver virtual elements overlaid onto a real-world setting, in her science classes this year and has seen her students’ interest pique.

    “It makes lessons more engaging and interactive for them,” she says.

    For virtual reality, students use cardboard goggles called Google Cardboard. Students put the goggles on and view videos on their phones while wearing the goggles. Students then use Cardboard-compatible applications on their phones to watch class-appropriate videos, placing the phones into the back of the viewer.

    There are also hundreds of virtual “field trips” that teachers can guide students through using Google cardboard.

    “We did a tour of the Galapagos Islands using Google Cardboard, and the students were really engaged in it,” Cauthers said. “You felt like you were immersed in the islands. You could see all the different types of coral and fish species close up.”

    Because not all students have smart phones, the district purchased a trial Google Expedition set, which will arrive this summer and be beta tested. It will include about 30 devices. Cauthers said teachers hope to use it on a widespread group of students next year and potentially purchase more as needed.

    Students using the Quiver augmented-reality app can not only see their diagrams popping right off the page, but they can make recordings and videos as well. “They can record a tutorial on the app, and it also has a quiz on the diagram that students can take,” Cauthers said, which helps them memorize the material.

    The technology is evolving all the time, according to Cauthers. “It really is the beginning of an exciting new way of learning.”

    The event, held at Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES’ Yorktown campus on May 18, was attended by BOCES administration, Tech Center faculty, students, friends and family members. In addition to those students who were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society, more than 80 students received scholarships and awards.

    “Whether they are framing a house in Carpentry, saving a tree in Urban Forestry or comforting a child in Early Childhood Education, Tech Center students gain skills few others do,” Vilma Ramos of Walter Panas High School told the audience of 400, including fellow honorees, Tech Center faculty and staff, students, friends and family.

    The Honor Society looks for students who “demonstrate a spirit of personal excellence, honesty, leadership, teamwork and responsibility,” said Chelsea Horsfield of Walter Panas High School. The honorees, from high schools throughout the region, all attend technical and career classes at BOCES.

    In addition to scholarship, inductees had to exhibit  character, skill, leadership and service.

    Lighting a candle to represent “service,” Nicholas Mills of Walter Panas High School listed the organizations that Tech students aid with volunteer work, including volunteer ambulance companies and fire departments, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the Special Olympics, ROTC programs, Guiding Eyes for the Blind and more.

    BOCES Superintendent Dr. James Ryan told the students that he and the faculty were proud of them.

    “I have seldom seen students who have such tremendous composure, maturity and focus on their areas of interest,” he said. “I really am so taken by the dedication that you have for your areas of interest, and I know that you are going to do great things as you go from Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES.”

    In all, 104 students from Westchester and Putnam were inducted into the honor society.
