Just a reminder of the upcoming burn ban this week.
Annual burn ban in effect from March 16 through May 14.
Open burning is the single greatest cause of wildfires in NYS.
Since the spring burn ban was implemented in 2009,
the number of wildfires has decreased by more than 40%.
Watch a Public Service Announcement on open burning and check out
other clips on DEC’s YouTube Channel (leaves DEC website).
When you plan a fire, always check for fire danger in your area on DEC’s online map
(updated every week). Also, local governments may have stricter rules than NYS;
your fire department will have information about local burning laws.

As we excitedly anticipate to the installation of new carpet later this spring throughout the Reading Room, Children’s Room and office space, we are in full planning. Every shelf and piece of furniture that is not attached to a wall will be moved, most for the first time since the library was built in 2006! So not only are we anticipating the carpet install needs, but if the spaces could use any shifting when we bring them back together. Please share what future needs or wishes you have (that’s how we meet those needs)…WPL is hoping our community can help us with: STURDY, clean box donations, starting now. – Muscle to move shelves, etc. Details TBA once we know when. But if you have teens who need volunteer hours, we will be able to provide plenty of them!

Lenten Light Is On Campaign
Father Hage will be prepared to hear Confessions for an extended period on Monday, Apr. 11th from 4pm until 7pm at St. Mary’s in Hamilton for the entire PCA. Father Hage will expose the Blessed Sacrament on the high altar at 4pm, so parishioners can adore the Blessed Sacrament while they wait in line to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He will do Solemn Benediction at 7pm to conclude this special offering. Please take advantage of this unique opportunity to receive God’s mercy this year.

On March 26, six Waterville students in the agriculture program attended “Dairy Discovery”
at Cornell University’s Department of Animal Science. Students rotated through 6 sessions
which were taught by university professors. Topics included: Anatomy and Physiology, Dairy Nutrition,
Reproduction, Lactation, Raising the Newborn Calf and more! Students gained hands-on lab
experience in a variety of activities through these sessions. The sessions allowed attendants to
interact with other students and 4-H members from around the state, expanding their knowledge
of opportunities in the dairy industry. They also took the time to tour some of the Cornell campus.
Dairy Discovery is an annual program organized by CALS Dairy Science Pro-Dairy Program.

Jr./Sr. High students Hanley and Cole are representing Waterville
in Syracuse this weekend as members of the Student Board for the
New York State Council on Leadership and Student Activities.

AP US History students participated in a Breakout EDU critical thinking activity
about the Great Depression. Students collaborated as a team to solve a series of clues
about the Dust Bowl. Upon solving each clue, students were able to unlock a series of
locks to break into a box that eventually solved the mystery they were given.
Students effectively communicated, worked together and solved the mystery
within the 45 minute time limit and learned more about the Dust Bowl in the process! (4/01)

A little April Fool’s Day humor in kindergarten!
All three teachers gave their students some “brown e’s”!
(Eventually they did have some real “brownies”!)

At MPS, Mrs. Scranton’s class built circuits today! (3/31)
