Well, everyone going to States from our school is leaving tomorrow... So, good luck to all! I'll probably see you around. If you recognize me, please say hi!
Indeed. Good luck to all competing at Div B! Hehe, was reviewing Road Scholar and Solar System for those middle schoolers, guess I'll be curious how South Woods does for that XD.

Ok guys, I need your help.

I applied for a teaching job in Harrison School District (Lower Hudson), and I have an interview next Wednesday.

As a science teacher, my biggest asset is Science Olympiad, so I obviously want to talk about my experience as a competitor and coach. I want to show that I can offer the school my great Science Olympiad experience, but unfortunately, Lower Hudson doesn't seem to post their results. I want a little background info about the team (i.e. how they placed at Regionals), but I can't find the info. All I know is that neither the middle school or high school qualified for states.

Anyone from Lower Hudson know how Harrison (Harrison High School and Louis M. Klein Middle School) performed at Regionals?
I don't think the High School does it at all. Here's their activities page: http://www.harrisoncsd.org/index.php/cl ... vities-hhs
Science Olympiad is not listed.
The middle school appears to have a team, though: http://www.harrisoncsd.org/docs/lmk/clu ... vities.pdf

Hi!

Did anyone here take the NYS Astro exam at NYS? I just took it as a practice test, and wanted to know what score is a good score. e.g. top team finished 1/2 of the test because it was REALLY long, or top teams finished ALL of the test without much of a problem. :D

Thanks! (and congrats to the teams going to nationals!)

Good job all you New Yorkers! Good job F-M. Good Job Columbia. Good Job all season W-M (even the high schoolers who did not get to go-showing everyone how stupid adults can be in all kinds of ways).

Not just the Div C'ers in general, but the B teams too. 11th and 12th may not be top 10, but those are certainly two very solid placings representing our very competitive state well.

Well of course not just to Division C! Congratulation to all the New Yorkers! I think middle school teams count. They have the accent and all and they represent NY so I figure I'm including them when I say...Congratulations to the New York teams. F-M for how well they did, Columbia for how well they did and W-M for how well they did including those that did not get to come. I know the middle schools have their own names but they are F-M and W-M district schools so I assume they will know I'm congratulating them too. Hope you know that!

I must say how impressed I am with Columbia HS, them being first timers at Nationals. I know that it was kind of awkward for them and us (Paul Gelinas) to share a tearoom because we were so vocal about the whole Ward Melville situation, but I must say that Columbia represented our state well and they definitely deserved to go. The Ward Melville team next year, which will hopefully include me *crosses fingers*, will need to regain a lot of momentum if we are going to beat Columbia at states.
Looking forward to anatomy, protein, fossils, and optics (NYS trial) this year!
