Spry staff members tackle Pink Ribbon Run

4 May

CaptureThere’s a wonderful bunch of lady runners at Spry Middle School who are working hard to make a difference.

Led by teacher Toni Lynn Swinson, this group of more than 40 women will be taking on the 17th Annual Pink Ribbon Walk & Run on Mother’s Day, to support the Breast Cancer Coalition.

The ladies have been working for weeks, whipping their legs in shape for the 5K, and whipping up donations for their cause.

It’s a scary fact that 1 in 8 women can expect a breast cancer diagnosis in her lifetime. The Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester is a terrific local organization dedicated to fighting this terrible disease and winning. Their advocacy, research, and funds stay right here at home in Rochester, and that includes every penny raised for this race.

That’s where you come in. These  Pink Ribbon Runners need your support to help make their efforts worthwhile. They’ve already raised more than $2,000, but would like to double that — or more.

It’s easy to donate; just click here to log onto their fundraising page. Even a little bit would help.

 

Next year, these ladies might try to make this a One Webster event, and invite lots more staff members to take part. If that happens, you can count me in.

As for this year ladies, if you’re a runner — or even a walker — and would like to join the Spry Pink Ribbon team, drop an email to Tony Lynn Swinson at ToniLynn_Swinson@webstercsd.org. They’d love to have you.

Webster Library to host unique photography exhibit

30 Apr

Everybody has a story. That’s the intriguing premise behind a brand new photography exhibit opening Tuesday at the Webster Public Library.

Created by Linda Dow Hayes of Hayes Photography, the exhibit features portraits and personal narratives of 25 Webster Central School District faculty and staff members

Hayes, who works as a teaching assistant at Webster Thomas High School, has always been interested in creating insightful portraits. The project grew from remarks made by Webster CSD superintendent Carm Gumina on the opening day of school last year, when he talked about the fact that all faculty and staff members have stories to tell.

Hayes took that thought and ran with it, creating her very personal and meaningful “We All Have a Story” exhibit, where she takes a closer look at the lives and stories of more than two dozen staff members.

“The idea of connecting with interested faculty and staff members by taking their portraits was something that I felt might work to help me grow as an artist and connect with the community-at-large,” Hayes said.

The exhibit, which runs the entire month of May, will be open to the public during the library’s normal business hours, Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., friday from 10 to 6, and Saturday from 10 to 5.

The public is invited to an opening reception on Wednesday May 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Webster Public Library is located at 980 Ridge Road.

Paradise Junction is just about the most perfect small town in the world.

It’s a place where everybody gets along, the sun is always shining, and the tomatoes grow as big as beach balls. So when a TV network offers to film a reality show there, the townsfolk jump at the chance. After all, the town will receive five million dollars, while the publicity promises to turn the residents into TV stars.

But host Wink Smiley has his own agenda. Secrets are revealed, old feuds are rekindled, and the town’s annual pie-baking contest is turned into a massive food fight. Now it’s up to Joe Goode, owner of the Rise ’n’ Shine Diner, to save the town.

Find out for yourself if he’s successful when the students of Willink Middle School present the student-run play Paradise Junction on Friday May 4 at 7 p.m. and Saturday May 5 at 1 p.m.

The heartwarming comedy is inspired by the films of Frank Capra such as It’s a Wonderful Life and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Tickets are just $5 and will be available at the door.

Willink Middle School is located at 900 Publisher’s Parkway, Webster. For more information, visit willinkstudentrunplay.club.

Community Arts Day is our kids’ chance to strut their stuff

6 Apr
art

One of the incredible pieces of high school art at last year’s CAD

Community Arts Day returns to Webster Schroeder High School next weekend, on Saturday April 14.

If you’ve been a Webster resident for a while, you probably already know about this great event. But if not, please read on, especially if you 1) appreciate artwork of all kinds, 2) have children, 3) like baked goods, 4) like crafts, 5) like seeing your friends and neighbors, and/or 6) like having fun with life.

Allow me to elaborate.

  • Community Arts Day is our school district’s annual show-off day. Students from every one of our elementary, middle and high schools will have artwork on display. We’re talking sculptures, paintings, collages, sketches, you name it. Even the youngest students will be represented. These kids just love seeing their work displayed in public, and you’ll see many a proud parent snapping photos of their children in front of the displays. Especially don’t miss the incredible artwork by our high-schoolers, usually set up in the cafeteria. They’ll make your jaw drop. By the way, make sure to look at the walls as you walk by, because you’ll find written pieces posted there. (Writing is an art form all its own.) And throughout the day you can enjoy music and dance performances, and martial arts demonstrations.
  • Even if your children don’t expect to have anything on display, bring your kids anyway. There are all sorts of free activities and give-aways, there’s a bake sale and hot dogs, arts and crafts, and usually a firefighter hanging around to show off his — or her — gear.  So basically it’s a full day of free entertainment.
  • Did I mention the bake sale? Tons of great baked goods. And here’s an insider’s hint: the last hour of the day or so, everything is half price. You can walk away with whole pies for a steal.
  • Local craft-type people set up their wares in the cafeteria every year, and it’s great fun to see what they bring. This is also where you’ll find the kids’ arts & crafts area and regular live entertainers.
  • Guaranteed, within minutes of walking into the school, you’ll see someone you know — a friend, school acquaintance, a neighbor. Because Community Arts Day is THE place to be that weekend.
  • Having fun with life is what this day is all about. As soon as you walk in the door, you’ll see a dozen things you want to see or do. Around the next corner, there’s another dozen things. Basically, make sure to plan a couple of hours to wander.

Community Arts Day takes place Saturday April 14 from 10 am to 4 pm at Webster Schroeder High School, 875 Ridge Road. Admission is free and there’s plenty of parking. Proceeds from food, craft, and carnival booth sales will benefit cultural arts programs within the Webster Central School District. For more information, visit the Community Arts Day website.

Webster PTSA spreads kindness one locker at a time

29 Mar

message 6

I love stories like this one.

Thursday morning, every single student in all four Webster secondary schools arrived to find inspirational notes taped to their lockers.

The project was coordinated and implemented by the Webster Central PTSA, several of whose members fanned out Wednesday night to affix about 6,000 positive messages.

The project was enthusiastically embraced by Superintendent Carm Gumina and principals at all four schools — Spry and Willink middle schools and Thomas and Schroeder high schools.

 

PTSA co-president Stacie Peters wrote, “We are so proud of our students and how they handled themselves on March 14th that we thought it was perfect timing to follow up with the uplifting messages.” It was on the 14th that Webster students came together as one to show their support for the students in Parkland, Florida.

Kindness is so simple to spread, and is the best way I know of to solve the serious problems our country is facing right now. We can only hope that this next generation learns that lesson and will lead the way and start the healing process — and that reasonable, rational adults will start listening to them.

Webster mini mailbag

22 Mar

Just a few quick events taking place this weekend I wanted to remind you about. The first is the Webster Thomas Players production of Pippin, which actually is about to raise its opening night curtain as I write this.

pippinThis is going to be an outstanding performance. If you have never seen our high school students take to the stage before, please make the time to do so, because you’ll be very impressed.

The remaining showtimes are Friday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday March 24 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the door, beginning an hour before the show.

* * *

And may I suggest that if you go to Pippin on Saturday night, you begin the evening with an amazing Italian dinner.

spaghetti

Boy Scout Troop 262’s Famous Spaghetti Dinner will be served from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, at the Webster Columbus Center, 70 Barrett Drive.

In addition to dinner, there’s a bake sale and a drawing for a TV. Cost is $9 per adult, $5 for children under 10.

I’m not exactly sure what makes this particular spaghetti dinner “famous,” but I suspect it’s pretty spectacular, and I’m curious enough to check it out for myself.

And I might win a TV.

train showAnd don’t forget about the Model Train Show this weekend, sponsored by the Webster Association of Senior Program Supporters, a not-for-profit senior transportation group. It  takes place Saturday and Sunday March 24 and 25 at the Webster Recreation Center, 1350 Chiyoda Drive.

A few post-St. Pat’s Day stories

20 Mar

As I walked through the halls of Schlegel Rd. Elementary School last week, I came upon a bulletin board peppered with St. Patrick’s Day-themed stories written by Janet Gibson’s fourth grade students. They impressed me so much that I encouraged Janet to let me post a few of them in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

It’s a little late, but the stories are still worth reading. Aside from adding some paragraph breaks for readability, and fixing a few minor spacing errors, I haven’t made any changes. Enjoy!

One lucky day

By: Nate Kozlowski

nathan

One day I, Ben Tenisson, was fighting Dr. Animo, with Gwen and Max. I was in the city. Dr. Animo is an evil scientist. We defeated Animo. He got wrecked and gone. Then when I was walking  in the field I found a rainbow. I did not have a lot of time. It was in the afternoon, 12:05. I turned into xlr8 and ran all the way to the end of the rainbow. I found a leprechaun. He said his name was Jimmy. He was polite. He gave me 5 gold doubloons because I asked him.

I told him it was time for me to go. He was a bit sad, so I stayed for a while longer. It started to rain so I turned into upgrade. I upgraded an umbrella so it was huge. Now it was the end of the day. Jimmy was happy because he was not alone for the day. I headed home and told my parents about the day, except me fighting Animo. If my mom knew I was fighting a maniac, she wood have flipped out!!!!!.

Happy Leprechaun’s day!

 


Rishi’s Adventure

By Rohanth Rishi Chakrala

“Tag, you’re it!” I yelled. I tagged Jay on the monkey bars. I jumped off and quickly rishistarted running. I looked back. Jay wasn’t there. I looked around. He was chasing Abhi. Jay got closer and closer. Then when I thought Abhi was going to get tagged, Jay tripped on a rock. “Ha ha!” Abhi laughed. “It’s not funny” Jay said as he got up.

Just about when I was going to run I spotted a rainbow. “Hey guys, look” I said, pointing at the direction of the big, colorful bow. “Something tells me that there’s a pot of gold at the end” said Jay curiously. Curiosity always gets Jay. “you watch too many movies” Abhi said shaking his head. But Jay already took off running.

“Jay, wait up!” I called, running to get to my bike. Abhi was right behind me. I had to pedal with all my might to reach up to Jay. When I got there I couldn’t believe my eyes, Abhi couldn’t either because his mouth was open. There was a pot of gold at the end. But what surprised me was that the rainbow was projected! “What!” I exclaimed. “Wehad to  get here for nothing?”. “Well, at least we have the money!” Jay said.

“Not so fast!” said a voice. It was coming out of the bushes. Abhi went to see who it was and then a leprechaun jumped out. “AHHHHHHHH!” we all screamed. “Stop screaming!” said the leprechaun. “We screamed because you scared us!” I said. “What is your name?”Jay asked. “Uh, my name is David” said the leprechaun, hesitantly. Jay laughed. “Jay…” Abhi started. Jay stopped. “Its okay” said David. “Everyone usually laughs at me”. “Where are you from, anyway?” I asked. “Really, I don’t know, But I came from this weird portal” he said as he stepped aside. There, right in front of me, was a swirl of purple. “Is this some kind of an adventure?” I asked excitedly. “Maybe, who knows?” David replied.

I was just about to step through when Abhi said “Wait!” “We should go get Derek!” said Jay. 10 minutes later… we found ourselves in a mysterious world. “This is-” Derek started but was broken off by laughter. I turned around and saw everyone pointing and laughing at David. Then when everyone looked at Abhi, they stopped and started minding their own business. “Thanks” David said softly. We went into this evil kingdom. King Raven seemed evil and his knights started chasing us but we fought with cool weapons. “Take this!” I said as I studied the direction in degrees and aimed. And suddenly everything turned into slow motion. Wild king Raven got shot.

Then I opened my eyes. “That whole thing was a dream?” I wondered. “Rishi, you are finally awake!” Abhi said. “Well, let’s go play!” Jay said. “Well then your it!” I said as I tagged Jay. With that, we started where we stopped.


Jay and John’s Weird Adventure

by Jay Crosby

crosby“Mom!” “Yes” “Can I go outside and ride my bike with John?” Jay asked. ”Yes, but be back by six”. Mom said. So Jay lept of the couch, got his light jacket and sped through the garage to get his bike and helmet. He had facetimed John an hour earlier, so Jay expected John to be waiting. And there he was leaning against one of the many columns lining the driveway.

Jay observed John and his bike: he was wearing a red jacket, both Jay and John’s favorite color. Johns bike was green, not the best match with red, but Jay figured John did not care. “Come on let’s go!”. “Wait”, Jay said “What is it ?” said John. “I see a rainbow!” “Let’s go!” “ But…” John Started to say only to find that Jay had Already started to ride down the street , John sighed . Meanwhile… “ We’re there!” “But Jay , It’s 5:46” John said. “But… look”

Before them was the end of the rainbow, and not just that ! There was a huge black pot full of shiny gold coins. And behind, sat a small leprechaun dressed in dark green . “Should we approach?” John asked nervously. But before Jay could answer “oh” The leprechaun said nervously . “Hi, my name is Jay and his name is John”. “Well, my name is Billy”. “Um Jay…”John said. “Yeah,”Jay said. “It’s five fifty nine”. Both of them knew they had to be at their houses by six. “Let me guess”. “Yeah”John said softly . “ You have to be at your house by 6 O’clock?” “Well, yes, but how did you know ?” said John. “I don’t know, I just guessed “. “Tell me your address “. Well ok?” John said “17 Shamrock Circle” Jay said quickly . “And mine is …”John started to say, but was quickly stopped when Billy snapped.

They were all surrounded by green mist. When it all disappeared, Jay was shocked to see that he was in his own garage. “How could I ever thank you !”Jay gasped “Wait but what about my bike?” Jay said. “Right over there “Billy beamed. Jay looked to his right, and there it was as if it had never moved in the first place. “Well thank you so much !” “no problem” Billy said.


The Day of the Leprechaun 

by Margaret Hogan

It was the spring of of 2017 in March. I wore sweaters, scarfs, you name it, I wore it! Wemaggie's photo had a HUGE test… I passed!! I had my name (Gracie Hoffman) and the date. The only rule was: NO DOODLING ON THE TEST PAPER! I was mad, I was practically famous for my doodles. I picked up Annie, Liv, and Savannah from Baker Middle School and St. Lawrence Middle School. I go to Beacher Middle School. My mum doesn’t want to pick up 4 noisey middle schoolers so, I either have to ride my bike or walk to and from school. My house is like, 2 miles away from Beacher Middle School. Beacher is a block away from Baker and St. Lawrence Middle Schools. Annie and Liv normally ride their bikes. Savannah is blind so she has a seeing eye dog. Whenever we hang out with her we walk because she can’t ride a bike. I pick them up and (of course) Annie is wearing her pink floral jeans with her pink unicorn shirt! AGAIN! Liv has her black pants on, plaid shirt, and her black framed glasses. Savannah LOVES orange.

Orange shirt, pants, headband, ponytail, shoes, her dog’s collar, and harness!! I like to wear blue jeans, a tee shirt, white Converse, and a french braid. I love to pet Savannah’s dog, Cody, because he’s SOOOO soft! He’s a rich brown, almost caramel color, Labrador Retriever. HE’S THE CUTEST!! Maybe it’s just because I love big-ish dogs. He’s always helping Savannah so I rarely get to pet him. I dropped off Savannah at her house. After I pick them up, we walk to my house. We go into my room, Annie was SHOCKED (Liv wasn’t because she knew about my room).

The last time Annie came to my house, I was obsessed with dogs. Apparently it was a shock to see horses in my room. I had posters of Man O’ War, Black Beauty, American Pharoah, Secretariat, Chocolate Chip Kisses, and MANY more! I ride horses and the day I pick up my friends I have to go to the barn. Liv rides but she’s not advanced yet. Annie mucks out stalls while Liv and I ride. I ride a new Welsh Pony named Squirrel, he’s a light chestnut stallion. He’s too feisty to be gelded yet. He has barely had a rider on his back so he likes to buck and rear. I just lunge him if he’s good. If I don’t ride Squirrel, I ride Tobacco. He’s an 11 year old American Quarter/Paso Fino Gelding. He can be feisty, but normally he’s amazing. On trail rides I ride a Gelding named Bay, he’s calm and fast. As I said, Liv rides too. She rides a 7 year old Red Roan 13’4hh Connemara Pony. I took Annie and Liv to the barn. Liv rode Strawberry and I rode Tobacco. I jumped 4’6 and since Strawberry is a pony, Liv only jumped 2’3.

Griffin, our trainer, walked into the outdoor arena, where we ride. He asked us to warm up by walking for 3 minutes then trotting around for a few minutes, then we can start jumping. After the ride, we went on a trail ride. I tacked up Bay western because it’s comfortable. Liv tacked up Whisp. She’s an Exmoor Pony.

She’s a 12’4hh Dapple Bay. We go to a open field where we like to gallop. In the corner we saw a leprechaun. We galloped to him, he had his empty pot of gold. He exclaimed that he went out to leave some stuff for a child, came back, and his gold was GONE!! He saw a man with gold but didn’t think much of it. He had a plain black shirt, and black jeans. Liv said “ I’ve seen a man like that”. We went to the local police, we told them what had happened. THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE US! We went on the hunt… Liv and I. Up to us. We searched where all the sketchy guys go. We saw him! He was “Camping” in a dirty alley. We galloped the horses as fast as they could toward the police.

They walked slowly to their cars. They drove to the location and one man tackled him. The other men saw the pot of gold. The other two men grabbed the carriage/cart and I hopped off of Tobacco. We hooked up Tobacco to the carriage/cart and he did his very steady trot over to the Leprechaun. Liv and Whisp were waiting for us. We handed him the pot and he gave us HALF! We traded it for real money.

With the money, I bought a saddle, a saddle pad, a bridle and a halter! Liv bought a halter and A TON of treats for Strawberry!

Community Arts Day needs volunteers

20 Mar

As sure as sighting a robin is a sign of spring, I know that April is just around the corner when I start getting emails about Community Arts Day.

I’ll post more detailed information and photos about this great annual event soon, but for starters, here’s a quick reminder from the district (and a call for volunteers) so you can get it on your calendars right now.

lion

Community Arts Day is April 14

Webster Central PTSA is gearing up for Community Arts Day and everyone is invited to join the fun, so save the date and volunteer your time!

Community Arts Day (CAD) will be Saturday, April 14, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Webster Schroeder High School. This annual event showcases Webster CSD students’ creative talents and involves the entire community in a day to celebrate the arts. This great Webster tradition was created as a collaborative effort to raise money to encourage and enhance fine arts programs throughout the district. Activities include art displays, carnival games, sweet treats sale, plant sale, crafts galore and so much more! Musical groups and demonstrators (karate, gymnastics, etc.) perform free all day! You can also grab lunch there (now accepting most major credit cards).

Volunteers are always welcome. Each of the 11 schools in the district contributes volunteers to the CAD committee and 30 volunteers to run the events, buy baked goods, and make the day a great event for the entire community. If you would like to donate a little of your time, email the CAD Planning Committee at CAD@websterptsa.org.
