Measurement Lab

Juniors in chemistry spent Monday on the practice field putting their skills of measurement to practice. Prior to this outdoor "Measurements Lab," students learned the importance of accurate and precise measurements in science, especially chemistry. Despite a predisposition for feet and inches, groups were able to measure their frisbee throw distances to five (5) significant figures in the metric system. Interestingly, our European exchange student, Charlotte Holmstroem, was quite pleased to learn the athletic department's measures have both metric units on one side of the tape!

Field Trip to the Fire Hall

As part of Fire Safety Week, NY Mills first grade students have been learning about fire departments, fire trucks, and important fire safety tips. To end the week, first graders took a field trip to the NY Mills Fire Hall, where NY Mills Firefighters Brandon Marsh and Tyler Wegscheid (who are both dads to NY Mills first graders) were on hand to answer questions about the different trucks and equipment they use. We would like to thank Tyler and Brandon for the amazing tours, as well as extend a huge THANK YOU to all NY Mills Volunteer Firefighters for always being ready to serve our community.

5th & 6th Learn Bike Safety

New York Mills fifth and sixth graders have been learning about bike safety during physical education class with Jeff Rimpila. Students learn how to use hand signals, and other safety issues for biking on roads such as stopping, looking for cars, following street signs and swerving around obstacles. After the students pass the bike safety course, Mr. Rimpila hopes to take the group on a ride around town. This is the third year the NY Mills fifth and sixth graders have been able to practice bike safety skills thanks to the school’s bike fleet.

Walk to School Day

The weather couldn’t have been any better for this year’s Walk to School Day. Each October, Elementary Physical Education Teacher Jeff Rimpila organizes the local event. In NY Mills, high school students pair with elementary students for the 30-minute walk around town. The goal behind this event is to “raise awareness and support for the health, community and environmental benefits of regularly walking or biking to school.” Special thanks to the New York Mills Police Department for helping with street crossings. #WalkToSchoolDay
