A letter from principal Aaron Thiell -
Keeping Latham Ridge Safe
Often events in world around us are
difficult to understand and to resolve in our hearts.
With the most recent tragedy in Connecticut, the
feelings of disbelief and sadness are evident. When
these horrific events occur, it is natural to turn
within and ask ourselves two questions.
A message from Nurse Zandri
As part of a required school health examination, a student
is weighed and his/her height is measured. These numbers are
used to figure out the student's body mass index, or 'BMI''.
The BMI helps the doctor or nurse
know if the student's weight is in a healthy range or is too
high or too low.
Latham Ridge student goes the extra mile
Close to 700 fourth, fifth, and
sixth-graders from the North Colonie ran in their one-mile cross
country race. But fifth-grader Cassidy Careccia volunteered to
run even further to make sure her best friend was able to cross
the finish line. »
