Third and fourth-graders from Cornwall-on-Hudson, Lee Road and Willow Avenue participated in a Science Expo at the middle school on Jan. 23. It was an evening event, with parents helping the kids set up their exhibits — which had been ready since before Jan. 4 when the original expo was snowed out.
Science coordinator Caryn Mante organized the event with help from several high school students who (among other things) interviewed the exhibitors. Here are a few sites we visited.
ENGROSSED: Signy Johnson and her panda didn’t know we were taking their picture.
Gloria C. Brisman
May 20, 1930 – January 10, 2018
Gloria C. Brisman passed away Wednesday, Jan. 10 in her home. She was 87.
Daughter of the late Julius Dubrin and Sadie Wershba Dubrin, Gloria was born May 20, 1930 in Brooklyn. Gloria was the widow of Jerome I. Brisman. She was the manager of the tour division for West Point Tours, Inc. in Vails Gate.
Gloria leaves behind the tree of family and children that she and her beloved husband Jerry grew. She will be missed by her daughter Judith Brisman; her three sons Jeffrey, Robert and Jay and their wives Pamela, Karen and Elizabeth; her nine grandchildren whom she adored; and her three great-grandchildren whom she wished to know longer.
The directors had three reasons for choosing “Madagascar Junior” as the Lee Road School show.
-They liked the friendship theme.
-The kids were familiar with the Dreamworks movie
-And the script had several speaking parts.
The number of speaking parts was important, because the directors wanted to give a few lines to each fourth-grader in the cast. And this year, there were more fourth-graders than in previous productions.
