A big Spartan shout-out to January's Teacher of the Month, Erika Strano! She was recommended by Tara Friend, who wrote:
1. She is a helpful and understanding mentor who I really appreciate getting to know and work with.
2. She is always positive and has a smile on her face!
3. She is a team player and works very hard at what she does.
That's the Spartan way!!

Dear High School students and families, due to a schedule conflict the Vice Versa Dance has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 11th, 8-11pm in the gymnasium. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Last week, at a physical education conference at SUNY Cortland, the Homer Brink PE instructors had the opportunity to present to fellow teachers and current Cortland students. It was a great opportunity for them to share the activities they are doing at Homer Brink.
The first session was called Monthly Fitness Challenges to Engage all Students. The focus was to provide teachers the resources to teach and incorporate both Health and Skill Related Fitness Components of Physical Fitness through monthly fitness challenges. The challenges are done at the beginning of each class and are used as an alternative to the traditional PE warm up. This is done by masking the common routine by incorporating those movements and exercises with popular songs and dances.
Coach Krise led a second session in the pool called Use Your Noodle A Guide for Elementary Aquatics. The session covered step by step progressions aimed at safe entry and movement in the water. The session took you through step by step progressions of the elementary backstroke and freestyle using pool noodles. High school student athlete Carter Czebiniak helped assist Coach Krise in the pool during the session.

The kids were enthusiastic and asked lots of questions! We’re looking forward to our future speakers.
