Herkimer BOCES special programs

Aug. 17, 2015


special programs summer school students
Students in the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES special programs summer school have experienced weekly “summer is fun” themes, and they recently went classroom camping as part of one of the themes. They were able to see what it’s like to go camping by going in a tent and making s’mores. Pictured, from left to right by row – in front of the tent: special education teacher Bev Petriski; student Victoria Fischer, of West Canada Valley; and special education teacher Alana Connolly.

It’s been a fun summer for students in the Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES special programs summer school.

In fact, “summer is fun” is the summer school’s theme this year. Each week also has had a theme – such as backyard camping, history, ice cream, community helpers and music and art.

Special guests connected to each theme have been visiting the students at Herkimer BOCES throughout the summer – including a state trooper, a fireman, a weatherman, a dairy princess, a guide dog and many others.

The students have experienced camping in the classroom, a Shakespeare reading, hip hop dancing, a guitar performance and more. Additional activities such as tie-dying and a water games day also are planned.

Students tapped into their artistic sides and entered posters on all-terrain vehicle safety to the Cooperstown Livestock Show. The students were thrilled to receive participation ribbons from the show, special education teacher Alana Connolly said.

The students also are entering artwork into the Herkimer County 4-H and youth art contests at the Herkimer County Fair, where they are eligible to win ribbons and prizes.
