Housatonic student of the week

The Lakeville Journal congratulates the honorees of the student of the week program at Housatonic Valley Regional High School.
FALLS VILLAGE — A common theme among our students of the week has been the proliferation of Renaissance men and women.

That is not the case, however, with senior Rebekah Purdy.

Rhoades demonstrated the trick in front of the school Friday afternoon, with the assistance of Lydia Downs.
Rhoades said he first saw the floating lady illusion in 1947, from a magician named Jack Gwynne, who was based in Chicago.
He built his own version from scratch. “Nobody has one like this,” he said. “You can’t buy what’s in my car.”

FALLS VILLAGE — The annual Region One School District budget referendum will have two questions this year — one for the school district budget and a separate question for raising the money needed to repair the roof at Housatonic Valley Regional High School (HVRHS), and, possibly, to pay for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
