SCHOOL 18 NEWS & EVENTS
United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith concluded the 2019 LEADership Project on June 19 at the Thomas O’Brien Academy of Science and Technology in Albany with seven fifth-grade students, including two from Troy CSD, who completed the project this year, and many leaders and representatives of the participating federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. The LEADership Project, an anti-gang initiative, reaches fifth-grade students in the Albany, Schenectady, Troy, and Lansingburgh School Districts.
Groups of 4th and 5th Grade students from School 2 and Troy School 18 recently presented their projects as part of an annual “Shark Tank” competition at Troy Middle School.Much like the TV show, students used their problem-solving and research skills to create a project to pitch in front of a panel of “Troy Sharks” or judges.
For the first time, Troy City Schools will be represented in the ‘Odyssey of the Mind’ World Finals. The School 18 team will be heading to Michigan State University May 22 – 25 for the World Finals of Odyssey of the Mind, a competition on creative problem-solving using theatrical performance and critical thinking.
Our District has partnered with BrightBytes – an educational research organization – to explore our use of technology for learning. We invite you to answer a few questions about your technology use. It should take less than five minutes to complete on any device with Internet access.
Congratulations to the Troy CSD School 18 Odyssey of the Mind team who won first place at the state tournament held in Binghamton. The team advances to the World Finals to be held May 22 – May 25 at Michigan State University. This is the first time the team has qualified for the World Finals, and their third appearance at the state tournament.
