  •  Students see how strong their bridge is by stacking books on top of it for Science Saturday

    Science Saturday Debuts at Washington Irving and Draws a Crowd

    The first-ever Science Saturday at Washington Irving Elementary School on March 18 was a huge success! Forty-five students in third through fifth grade attended and, along with their parents, were firing on all cylinders!  Science Saturday is a pilot program designed by Washington Irving teacher Mrs. Massaro that puts students in the driver's seat. The goal is that these events be student-led, and that students teach each other about STEM topics within a low-stakes, fun environment that carries none of the pressures of the classroom.

Ten years later, she told his story for him.

Kade receives many questions about his desire and decision to attend West Point and, as a tribute to him and his incredibly hard work, we are pleased to share those questions with his responses.
