Teachers in space

LMS math teacher participates in NASA space camp

Sara Pieklik has always been interested in space. “I was in elementary school when the Challenger disaster happened,” said Pieklik, a math teacher at Liverpool Elementary School. “I know teachers can go to space.

CNY SPCA Pet of the Week: Rufus is one cool guy

Rufus means “cool” and “awesome,” and that’s the perfect name for our dog of the week. Rufus is a 3-year-old neutered male pit bull mix. He is happy, silly and goofy. He loves to run, and he walks very nicely on a leash. He would do best as the only pet with older children. He’s very trainable — he already knows sit, and he’s eager to learn more. If you’d like to be his teacher, call the CNYSPCA at 454-4479 and meet the wonderful Rufus!
