LHS Spanish Students Enjoy Ennio Emmanuel Concert

On April 10,  the Spanish department  took 71 students to Coxsackie-Athens to see and participate in the Ennio Emmanuel concert.  Ennio is of Puerto Rican descent and travels the country to preform for high school Spanish students.  The students learn the songs during the school year, prior to the concert and then are able to enjoy and participate fully at the concert.  Some of our students were called up on stage to do activities such as a Spanish tongue twister competition, salsa dancing and playing some Latin American percussion instruments.  

After the concert we returned to the school and enjoyed a taco buffet, catered by Moe's Southwest.  ¡Qué delicioso!

Why Try! is a New Program to help Lansingburgh Academy Students Achieve Academic Success

Every Wednesday after school, Leesa Crawford-Young, MS, (HS Guidance Counselor) and Teresa D’Arcangelis, LMSW, (Student Assistance Counselor) have invited students to participate in a group to help him/her  become more successful in school, and to help gain insight into how to deal with daily challenges in life.  The program helps young people answer the question, “Why try in life?” when they are frustrated, confused, or angry with life’s pressures and challenges. The Why Try program teaches students that trying hard in life and putting effort into challenges at home, school, and with peers is worth the effort. Interactive lessons will focus on vital social and emotional coping skills necessary to make good decisions that foster achievement, opportunity, freedom and self respect in life.
