Though joined at the hip, so to say, Webutuck’s middle and high schools seldom cross over in the academic realm. So when science teachers Paul Wladarczyk and Chris DeSario found the opportunity, they seized it.
On Tuesday, Nov. 26, DeSario’s seventh-grade science class marched to the high school chemistry lab where they engaged in a series of experiments with Wladarczyk and some sophomores, juniors and seniors.

The club’s purpose is self-explanatory: to send letters and care packages overseas to U.S. soldiers. Jade said she’d been concerned about under-appreciated soldiers for a while, but it wasn’t until a push from her mother that she decided to approach the Board of Education with the pitch.
