The New York Mills High School Greenhouse will open for the season starting on Monday, May 7 from 2:30-4 p.m. Brian Schornack’s agriculture class has been working hard this semester starting a variety of plants. They have hanging baskets, four-pack tomatoes and peppers, and single plants. The flower plants consist of petunias, inpatients, geraniums, calibrachoa, lantana, lobelia, marigolds and coleus. The greenhouse will be open after school Monday-Thursday, while supplies last.
This spring and summer, two major facility projects will take place at the New York Mills School. As approved by the NYM School Board, the entire K-12 facility will be reroofed and the parking lot will be replaced. These projects will be paid for with the combination of state funding for long-term maintenance and taxpayer bonds.
Next week (April 9-13), the New York Mills High School will celebrate Spring(ish) Week with various activities and dress-up days. This year, Spring(ish) Week will include a scavenger hunt, classroom trivia challenge and a dance. Each spring, the NY Mills High School Student Council organizes a week of activities and dress-up days to celebrate spring. This year, the group of class representatives decided to coordinate Spring(ish) Week with other events at the school, including the NYM Education Foundation Chili Feed and Talent Show on Friday and the Speech Showcase on Thursday.
