Homecoming Week Spirit Day schedule.
Boys basketball mid-season check-in: Your Blue Devils are now 11-2 on the season following their 50-45 win over a quality Wheatland-Chili squad last night. So far this season, three of our starters have taken home Player of the Week honors for the Genesee Region Athletic Association. Senior Clayton Bezon got things started the week of Dec. 16 when he was named Player of the Week following wins over Oakfield-Alabama (28 points, 15 rebounds) and Pembroke (10 points, 11 rebounds). Next up was senior Cole Harding whose 22-point, 14-rebound, 6-assist performance over Royalton Hartland earned him Player of the Week honors for the week of Dec. 30. And earlier this month, senior Jack Janes was named Player of the Week for the week of Jan. 13 on the strength of his performances during wins over Wellsville (18 points, 13 rebounds) and Lyndonville (21 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists). “The team is really working great as a unit,” said Head Coach Rob Crowley. “I’m really proud of these guys and am really looking forward to making a strong push toward the end of the season.” Our boys are next in action Monday, Jan. 29 at home where they’ll take on 11-3 Byron-Bergen.

FARM TO SCHOOL: Build-your-own smoothies debuted as an entree option Jan. 11 in our Middle-High School Cafeteria. “Students tried out the smoothie line for the first time and made smoothies containing frozen fruit that the cafeteria staff froze over the summer months, local Upstate Farms yogurt and milk and fresh spinach,” said Farm to School Coordinator Alicia Spoth. “We had 239 people try out the smoothie line during lunches that day and are looking forward to many more healthy lunches to come with this new ‘Build-your-own’ station.” Middle School Principal Paul Clark stopped by a few lunches last week to see how students were enjoying the new offering. “I was really impressed with our food service staff who worked patiently with students to show them how the process works to create their own smoothie,” said Clark. “Seeing the smiles on the students from both Middle School and High School students enjoying their lunch was impressive!” (Photos courtesy of Paul Clark)

Pickleball is taking over the world and Attica’s no exception! We stopped by one of our physical education classes in the high school this morning to see some of our students in action. Our advice? A bit more dinking, a little less power. Oh, and make sure you stay out of the kitchen!

We asked, you delivered! Check out what our students go up to on their days off and thank you to all those who submitted photos! • Seniors Alanna Pellicane and Kaidan Hofheins braved the cold for a winter photo shoot. • Fourth grade teacher Katie Kennedy got together with some of our Elementary School students - Grayson and Alexander Helak, Bryn Coffta and Sam and Lucy Kennedy - for a spot of sledding. On Wednesday, they trekked to the Elementary School to tackle the hill between the school and Washington Street. Then, on Thursday, they headed to the High School to try the hill near our tennis courts! • Sophomore Grey Richley spent one of their snow days inside making some fish tacos. • Avery Nelson took advantage of the new-fallen snow to get outside and play with her dog, Gracie. • Pre-kindergartener Finley Addison played in the snow - likewise with her canine companion. • Kindergartener Alyson Walker bundled up for some outside fun. Is that the beginning of a snowman we see, Alyson?! • Kindergartener Jaxon Zimmermann went sledding.

We love seeing what our students get up to during a snow day, let alone two in a row! If you feel like sharing, send us a photo or two of how you or your student spent your time off in an email to Matt Leader, our public relations specialist, at mleader@gvboces.org. If we receive enough photos, we’ll share them in a future post. Stay warm out there, Blue Devils!

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Members of our Future Farmers of America chapter were sifting through some records down at Prospect Elementary recently when they stumbled upon an old book, “The Growing of America: 200 Years of U.S. Agriculture.” Published in 1975, the book’s dedication page listed Attica’s chapter members, officers and advisors and also noted the exact year - 1939 - that our chapter was first chartered! This information had been lost to memory as our district’s FFA chapter was rechartered in 2017. Our FFA is always looking to improve its archive and is asking any former Attica FFA members or family members that may have memorabilia from 1939 through the 1950s to reach out to Chapter Historian Olivia Bernacki at 24obernacki@students.atticacsd.org. As always, you can keep up to date with all the goings on of our FFA chapter by visiting its website at the link below. Link: https://sites.google.com/atticacsd.org/atticaffa/home?authuser=0
