The Timber Frame STEAM class spent some time Friday scoping out their work for the installation of the newest Wayland-Cohocton designed and built pavilion. This one will be erected on Monday on Main Street in the Village of Wayland. The original installation date was to be Tuesday, May 21st but due to weather concerns, the group will work on Monday, May 20th. The most exciting work, according to teacher Rob Hughes, will occur in the morning as large beams are hoisted into place with the boom truck and the structure begins to take shape. Stop down and see the kids at work. The class asks that observers stay outside of the work area for safety reasons, but are welcome to bring a chair and watch as the class works.

Students in Mrs. Curtin’s ACE Biology Lab stayed after school to complete a pretty extraordinary lab. The students transformed bacteria. A gene that glows under a black light was taken from a jellyfish. The bacteria E. coli was put through a series of different conditions, hot, cold, warm, calcium chloride wash, to insert the gene into the bacteria. The bacteria were plated on a petri dish and allowed to grow overnight. The next day the students looked at them under the black light to see if the transformation was successful. In the pictures of students are of them practicing their micropipetting. A micropipette can measure in volumes of a thousandth of a milliliter. The class practiced with the micropipettes first to be sure the students know how to use them correctly in order to get the exact amount necessary for a successful experiment.

National Honor Society students raised $300 from their Valentine's Day carnation sale in February. They voted to donate all of the money earned to The Vincent House. On Tuesday, the group walked over to present the check to the Vincent House Director of Development and Volunteers Christina Mattice. During the visit, NHS learned about the history of The Vincent House, its impact on the community and the unique services it is able to provide for people whose family members are in hospice care. The NHS members toured the home and learned how important volunteers and donations are to sustaining the work of the Vincent House.

ALL DRESSED UP Formal Closet: Did you know that Wayland-Cohocton has a prom closet? Years ago, then student Mackenzie Curtin started the closet as a project collecting formal dresses, long and short dresses. The closet has also had a few donations of suit pants and jackets for the guys. The closet also has a few pairs of shoes that can also be borrowed. Items can be donated to the closet at any time. Students can borrow from the closet and are asked to contribute a $20 fee for the cleaning of gowns after use. Dresses are to be returned after use. They are then dry-cleaned and safely stored for the next use. The closet is maintained by Mrs. Curtin and students in the National Honor Society. If you are interested in donating a gown or funds toward having the gowns cleaned, please contact Michelle Curtin at mcurtin@wccsk12.org. If a student is interested in borrowing a gown, they should reach out to Mrs. Curtin in the high school science wing at school.
