On Thursday October 4, girls from the eighth grade class took part in the “Young Women in Engineering Day” at River Valley Tech Center. This immersive, hands-on STEM day introduced them to various engineering concepts such as: Electrical Circuitry, Marine Engineering, Plasma Cutting, and Solar Electricity. The learning program was organized by Northern Heritage Mills with the goal of encouraging young women in middle and high school to consider entering the fields of employment in STEM and business leadership. A total of seven schools were in attendance with workshops hosted by college students and professionals from The Landing School, Dartmouth Thayer School of Engineering, Hypertherm, Eversource, Wheeling Engineering, and Norwich Solar Technologies.
The Source to Sea Cleanup is an annual trash cleanup of the Connecticut River and its tributaries in NH, VT, MA & CT. Volunteer group leaders coordinate local cleanup sites where participants of all ages and abilities spend a few hours picking up trash. We all have a responsibility to solve this trash problem—individuals, manufacturers, businesses, and government. By participating in the Cleanup, the students are part of the solution for cleaner rivers!
The Bellows Falls 7th grade participated in this cleanup on Friday Sept. 28th, in partnership with the Connecticut River Conservancy, which organizes this large, source to sea effort.They also visited the Adams Grist Mill with Larry Clark and Chris Glennon of the historical society, who gave a lesson in Bellows Falls industry. They cleaned approximately a hundred pounds of garbage off the side of the river, and in town, including paint cans, glass and rusty metal, and a large amount of plastic.
Mr. Dana Aquadro, Assistant Principal
I’m honored to take the next step of my career at the Bellows Falls Middle School. Middle schoolers are a great age group; it’s a time when students are beginning to figure out their passions and take steps to turn their dreams into realities. As assistant principal, I’ll be able to work with all of the students and families for many years. I’m delighted to continue contributing to Bellows Falls and the surrounding communities.
