Pops Concert Singing Mid-Winter Pops Concert Has Fallsburg Rocking
Mid-Winter Pops Concert Has Fallsburg Rocking

Fallsburg High School’s Music Department entertained an appreciative audience in the school auditorium on President’s Day 2018. The Senior Band and Chamber Chorus chose their selections wisely for the cold rainy evening. People were clapping, tapping and snapping their fingers as soon as the Band’s brass and percussion sections belted out “The Blues Brothers Revue.” Images of Jake and Elwood Blues doing handsprings across the stage flashed through this reviewer’s mind.

After three rocking songs and rousing applause, the Senior Band left the stage. The Chamber Chorus soon stepped onto the risers in the Orchestra Pit area. In rapid succession, without stopping for major breaks between numbers, these young singers delighted the crowd with four Earth, Wind & Fire hits from the seventies ending with “Celebration” by Kool and the Gang. The rehearsals paid off with smooth transitions from one song to the next. The enthusiasm of the performers was infectious.

The night was a true celebration of instrumentation and harmony. Soloists in each of the Choral selections were Dolce McPherson, Jasmine Johnson, Juan Lemus, Madison Lent, Dawn Ruhren, Dafeon Schell, Guillermo Granados, Chloe Barber and Alisson Martinez.

The excellent program was organized by Band Director Ms. Danna Clear and Choral Director Ms. Colleen Barber, with accompaniment by pianist Leon Hilfstein and student drummer Jake Scanna. Senior Rachel Collura used her dancing skills to nimbly emcee, introduce all musical numbers and jump up on stage to join the band to play the clarinet when the Senior Band was performing.
 
Sweethearts and heroes Super Heroes Rock at Fallsburg Central School District
Sweethearts & Heroes presented their anti-bullying program to over a million school children during the past eight years.  Thanks to the generosity of Phil Vallone and Rolling V Bus Company, FCSD received the full presentation.  Presenters Tom Murphy was a champion on the Mixed Martial Arts circuit; Rick Yarosh was an Army Sergeant and Wounded Warrior in Iraq.   

Bullying is mean and scary behavior done over and over again against smaller and weaker people.  In the 1500’s bully meant “sweetheart’ or serving to make someone a better person. In less than a century, it took on the modern meaning; and now America suffers from a bullying epidemic.  Sweethearts & Heroes demonstrates what schools and communities can do to eradicate bullying behaviors.

In two full days and one evening, grades K-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12, staff from both buildings, and parents participated in age appropriate programs.  Everyone hears the impact of bullying on peer groups, positive ways to confront the behavior of bullies and how to empower bystanders.  Tom and Rick teach the Five Bully Buttons: #1 Perspective; #2 H.O.P.E.; #3 Sweethearts: #4 Jump into Action: and #5 Heroes

Robotics Team Fallsburg Robotics Team Excels in January Competitions
Immediately after hosting a major Robotics Competition in December 2017, the Fallsburg Robotics Team was inspired to strengthen its skills during several regional matches in the month of January.  Club advisor and technology teacher Don Thomas was very pleased with the progress made by some of the younger members of the Robotics Teams and great strides made by some of the older team members.  

Tyler, Jonathan, Dawn, Jasmine, and Ava of team 99561B were tournament champions and also won the Design Award at the Tioga regional competition. Kai, Michael, Hannah, Armaan, Hunter, and Jean Paul of team 99561D finished in third place at the end of qualifying rounds at the Lansingburgh regional tournament.  The six of them are currently the highest skills scoring middle school team in New York State. 

Overall, four of the five Fallsburg teams have qualified to participate in the New York State Championships, and all of the teams are working towards a repeat visit to the World Championships in April
