We stopped by one of Mrs. Lisa Young's physical education classes this morning for the last day of students’ rock-climbing unit! It looked like fun, but don’t hold us to that because we kept our feet FIRMLY on the ground. Young's fourth period students wrapped up class with a race between juniors Maddie King and Rebekah Clark. First person to ring the bells was the winner - it was a close one! Check it out at the link below! Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnZDNlxfcPg

There’s a new member of the 1,000-point club. Huge congratulations to Cole Harding, who scored the 1,000th point of his varsity basketball career (and then some) last night during the Blue Devils’ 77-50 win over the Holley Hawks. The key basket came with about 1:37 to go in the first quarter on a second effort putback to push the Blue Devils’ lead to 15-9. With his 19-point effort against the Hawks Wednesday, Cole now has 1,013 career points and sits in third place among Attica’s all-time points leaders in boys basketball - one spot ahead of his coach, Rob Crowley, who scored 969 points for the Blue Devils from 2003 to 2006. Congratulations, Cole, on this incredible achievement! Check out the video linked below to see the special moment!

Our Farm to School Coordinator, Mrs. Alicia Spoth, was on the scene last Friday for our Buddy Fruit Taste Testing event during elementary, middle and high school lunches! Buddy Fruits are blended fruit snacks that come in a variety of flavor combinations. Last week, students chose between an “Apple Orchard” or an “Apple Cinnamon” blend. Spoiler alert - these were a hit!

Almost forgot to share this! To celebrate our Elementary School Counselor Amanda Crowley and in honor of National School Counseling Week last week, our kiddos “posted” words of thanks, gratitude and appreciation all over Crowley’s door! As you can see, our elementary schoolers think Mrs. Crowley is the best - we quite agree! (Photos courtesy of Ann Tambe)

We’re excited to announce our 2024 Capital Project! District residents will vote on this roughly $21 million proposal on May 21, the same day as our annual School Budget Vote and Board of Education election. If approved by voters, this capital project would have NO IMPACT on residents’ school taxes. While we look forward to sharing more detailed information in the coming weeks and months, this capital project proposal would include health and safety upgrades, address building maintenance items and improve educational offerings for our students across our three school buildings. Keep an eye on this page and our website for more information about this proposal!

The Champ Chips Jar was almost OVERFLOWING this morning at Attica Elementary School and you know what that means - time to reward all our students’ acts of kindness, perseverance, cooperation and gratitude! Over the past few weeks, students have been voting for which teacher they wanted to see take a whipped cream pie to the face (assuming they earned enough Champ Chips, of course). Well they did and at this morning’s assembly, it was time for pie to meet face. A hearty congratulations to Mr. Anthony Ianni, Mrs. Sherry Bennett and Mrs. Susie Baker for “winning” the vote and getting to enjoy some early morning whipped cream. We’re sooooo jealous! Check out the video linked below to see our teachers get pied! Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6brKqWF7SVE

FUTURE FIGHTING SCOTS: This afternoon, Attica seniors Clayton Bezon and Landyn Thomas signed letters of intent to attend and play football at NCAA Division II Pennsylvania Western University, Edinboro in Edinboro, Pa., this fall. While Clayton contributed offensively during his time on varsity, he was primarily a defensive standout for the Blue Devils at the linebacker position. A varsity player for only two years, the reigning Section V Class C Defensive Player of the Year still finished his high school career among the district’s career leaders in total tackles (190) and sacks (14) and holds the single season sack record with 9. A three-year varsity player at the running back position, Landyn ranks third all-time for the Blue Devils in points scored (212), touchdowns (35) and career receptions (38) while ranking among the top 10 in a variety of other offensive statistical categories including career receiving yards (555), career rushing yards (2,238) and receiving touchdowns (5). “It’s been a pleasure coaching these two guys,” said Attica Head Football Coach Jeff Cusmano. “Not only are they great football players that helped take our program to another level, they’re even better people and with their work ethic they will be a great addition to Edinboro.” Clayton and Landyn will compete in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference for The Fighting Scots. Congratulations to Clayton and Landyn on this huge step forward and good luck next year. You’re getting a pair of good ones, Edinboro!
