The Butterfly

French Film, “The Butterfly”-Saturday, November 16, 2019, 1pm, Troy Public Library, 100 Second Street, Troy, NY, free, presented by La Fédération Franco-Américaine du New York. In this family-friendly movie, Julien (Michel Serrault), a collector of butterflies, seeks to find the rare Isabelle Butterfly at the request of his now deceased brother. Before he begins his journey to the Alps for this year’s search, he meets 8 year old Elsa (Claire Bouanich), a girl with a very unattending mother. Julien agrees to bring Elsa along on his search, not knowing that Elsa’s mother never approved or knew about this.

North Greenbush Report from Councilwoman Mary Frances Sabo

The arrival of fall means that it is time for the town to adopt the 2020 budget. A copy of the tentative 2020 budget is currently on file in the Town Clerk’s office and a public hearing is scheduled for Thursday, November 14 at 6:40 p.m. at the town offices. I would encourage all to attend. This year’s budget contains a 3% tax decrease.

As more residents move into multi-family housing in town, many have spoken to me about a dog park for dogs to run off leash and get exercise. I have held a series of community discussions about the feasibility of creating a dog park in town. We now have a core group of volunteers who are prepared to begin fundraising and to circulate petitions to residents and stakeholders to demonstrate community support for a dog park. I will continue to support these effort and will keep you updated on progress the group makes.

At the October board meeting, I again introduced a resolution to make North Greenbush a “Climate Smart Community. or “CSC”. This is a a state program that helps local governments take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adopt to a changing climate. The first step in the process of becoming a climate smart community is adopting a resolution which costs nothing and does not commit the town to further steps. The board again tabled the resolution for further study but pledged to re-examine it again in November.

As a board member, I am committed to ongoing training to better serve the community. At the end of the month, I will be participating in two day long conferences dealing with local government and planning sponsored by the Department of State and the Capital District Regional Planning Commission. I will be attending classes on cyber security, stormwater management and ethics in the planning and zoning process.

Finally, the town’s Halloween parade and costume party will take place on October 26 at 6:00 p.m. Parade lineup begins at the Family Dollar plaza on Main Avenue.

News from Averill Park CSD

Algonquin Middle School students visited RPI’s Makerspace through a virtual field trip recently. The state-of-the-art video conferencing / distance learning room at AMS made this field trip a reality and helped students see many different uses for 3-D printers, without missing a full day of classroom instruction.

Statistics students in the high school visited MetLife Stadium to attend Sports in Business Day. Students learned all about various jobs in sports, toured the stadium and even got to walk around on the field!

A number of students are participating in the Arts Letters & Numbers workshop, which is presented by The Arts Center in Troy. Those participating will receive an authentic artistic experience that focuses on open-ended assignments while being exposed to a large artistic community. So far, the work done by everyone has been great!

• Setting the direction of the school district to achieve the highest student performance

• Providing accountability for student achievement results

• Developing a budget that aligns district resources to improve achievement

• Supporting a healthy school district culture in which to work and to learn

• And much more!
