Some understandable tension this morning at our annual Middle School Wax Museum as Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs were spotted together for the first time since blockbuster news of Diggs’ trade to Houston broke in April. In all seriousness, Logan Raimonde and Blake Sidell did a great job portraying #17 and #14 at today’s Wax Museum - as did all our other sixth grade students! Full photo album coming later today over on our Facebook page at the link below. Link: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100057106403663

Please join us in extending a huge congratulations to our Attica Elementary Music Teacher, Mrs. Jill Farrell. Last week, Assemblyman David DiPietro presented Jill with a Certificate of Merit from the New York State Assembly in recognition of her being named the Attica Elementary Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Farrell goes above and beyond to ensure that our students not only excel in the classroom but also grow into kind, compassionate individuals of strong character. In her classroom, Mrs. Farrell does far more than teach notes and rhythms. She helps our young learners understand the values that will serve as the foundation for a lifetime of success and fulfillment. Every day, she models the importance of positivity, kindness, and respect, demonstrating to her students that these virtues are just as essential as any lesson found in a textbook. Her passion for teaching and unwavering commitment to our students is an inspiration to us all. Thank you, Mrs. Farrell, for serving as an amazing example of what it means to educate with love and purpose and for all you do to make our school community the best that it can be!

Friday morning, our Attica Elementary fourth graders competed in our annual track meet! All fourth graders competed in various track and field events at Alumni Field, showcasing the skills they’ve been learning in physical education class. Everyone should be proud of their effort, sportsmanship, and competitiveness. A few students broke school records in various events: Hudson Hoy and Lincoln Fleenor in the power jump, Andrew Struzik in the 55-meter hurdles and Ryan Calmes tying the record in the vertical jump. It looks like our girls and boys track teams are in for a promising future! (Photos courtesy of Melissa Struzik)

They made it, ma - top (half) of the world! Our Odyssey of the Mind team took 14th place at the World Championships at Iowa State University last week, finishing in the top third of 51 competing teams from across the globe! Our team of Caden Morrison, Claira Deuel, Erin Murphy and Amara Brinkman scored 191.99 in the Rocking World Detour long-term problem, which challenged teams to create a performance about a touring rock band that is suddenly transported to an unexpected location in the middle of a song that must figure out how to use music to get them back to their tour. “These amazing kids did a phenomenal job and the fact that this was their first year in Odyssey of the Mind, makes it even more phenomenal,” said Odyssey Coach Stacey Donahue. “I am so proud of them!” A huge congratulations to Caden, Claira, Erin and Amara and a huge thank you to Ms. Donahue and all our other chaperones who accompanied our team to Iowa - you’ve definitely made Attica proud!

For the third year in a row, members of our National Honor Society chapter, along with adviser Melanie Loranty Dispenza and High School Counselor Erica Frongetta, participated in the United Way of Greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes’ annual Day of Caring last week! This year, our volunteers helped to beautify St Joseph’s parish in Batavia, spreading mulch and sprucing up flower beds. It was a beautiful day and a great way to give back to a worthy cause. Super proud of our students for giving of themselves and embodying service - one of NHS’s 4 pillars! (Photos courtesy of Erica Frongetta)

We had the pleasure earlier this week of hosting signing ceremonies for 2 of our student athletes - Cole Harding and Maddie Robinson - who will all be furthering their academic and athletic careers at college in the fall! Cole Harding committed to SUNY Brockport where he’ll play basketball for the eagles. Cole finished his high school basketball career as Attica’s 3rd all-time leading scorer with 1,019 points. In three years of varsity, he also amassed 232 assists, 618 rebounds and made 122 three-pointers. He is a two-time Genesee Region Athletic Association All-Star and a five-time GR Player of the Week. Maddie Robinson signed her letter of intent to attend Monroe Community College where she’ll play volleyball and softball for the tribunes. Maddie played a huge role in the Blue Devils winning the Section V Class C1 volleyball title this past fall and their subsequent run to the Far West Regionals. During her senior volleyball season, Maddie amassed 197 kills, a team-leading 86 aces and 210 digs and was named to the All-Greater Rochester First Team. In softball, Maddie was a four-year varsity player and three-year captain in softball and has been named a Genesee Region Athletic Association All-Star the past four years. During her senior season, she had 25 hits, 23 RBIs, stole 25 bases and posted a batting average of .446. On the mound, she had 85 strikeouts in 64 innings and posted an ERA of 4.27. Congratulations to Cole and Maddie!
