PVCA Student by day, Superhero by night.
Over the summer of 2016, I made my way to Boston and New York for two events, Comic-Con and Trekonderoga. Comic-Con was held at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Although much smaller in scale compared to other events by Comic-con, the convention was great. Comic-Con was filled with cosplayer, celebrity guests, exciting events, and much more.
PVCA Joins FIRST Robotics Lego League
The first Ever Robotics Club at PVCA, open to fourth through eighth graders, was instituted early this fall. The club is participating in a program called First Lego League, in which students have to devise a creative solution to a challenge, and present their solution at a tournament. The theme for this year’s tournament is Animal Allies, and the directive for each team is to identify a problem where humans and animals interact, either purposely or accidentally.
Sailing The Brilliant by Jesse Sprague
On the Fourth of July, I set out on a ten-day cruise on the schooner, Brilliant. The Brilliant, built in 1932, is a wooden sailing vessel. She was carefully crafted at the shipyard of Henry B. Nevins in City Island, New York. The Brilliant now has a permanent home in Mystic, CT where she sails with a crew made up of people who love the sea and have the desire to learn how to sail.
Riding with Ginger Snap by Elizabeth Snider
Elizabeth Snider, 2015 graduate and valedictorian of PVCA, spent part of her summer training and competing with her horse Ginger Snap. Elizabeth is currently in the Pharm D program at Albany College of Pharmacy in New York.
I began riding when I was a freshman in high school. I had wanted to for a long time, and was finally able to begin taking lessons at Independence Stable, only four miles from my house.
