Shen goes greener with single stream
On or about November
1st, 2010 Shenendehowa will begin “Single Stream Recycling“
program in partnership with County Waste.
This program will bring about two major changes. First is that
the amount of trash we dispose of will be greatly reduced and
our carbon foot print will then be less of an impact on the
earth. Second, the process is much simpler since 90% of what
we now dispose of can be recycled including
trays thanks to a new separation facility that was just
completed this year at the port of Albany.
We will be practicing SSR in every
building. So children coming up
through the grade levels will continue to be exposed to the
same process and should lessen the confusion over time.
All class rooms, copy rooms and faculty rooms will be
outfitted with small plastic or cardboard boxes about the same
size as a copy paper box that will have a clearly label
stating SSR recycling and showing the list of acceptable and
All cafeterias will be outfitted with larger flip top rolling
totes that are clearly labeled and posters on the walls
explaining items that can and can not be placed within.

Rehearsals have begun for the Shenendehowa
H.S. Drama Club’s production of You Can’t Take It With You, to be
performed Nov. 18-20 at the Adelson Auditorium in H.S. West.
Tickets are $8 general admission.
The 1937 play, which won the Pulitzer Prize
for Drama, is the story of the eccentric Sycamore family in New
York City. Three generations, presided by Martin Vanderhof, pursue
their hobbies rather than hold conventional jobs. Grandpa quit his
job in the financial district 35 years earlier and now attends
commencements, collects stamps, plays darts, and has snakes. His
daughter Penny writes plays and paints, while his son-in-law Paul
makes explosives and reads Trotzky. His granddaughter Essie has
studied ballet for eight years and makes candy, and her husband Ed
plays the xylophone, makes masks, and prints menus and sayings.
Of course, there is one normal one, Alice, his other
granddaughter, who works as a secretary for Kirby & Co. and comes
home to announce she is dating Tony, the boss’s daughter. Troubles
come to a head when Tony and his parents, who have come to meet
the Sycamores and have a family dinner, arrive on the wrong night.
Brandan Ray is Grandpa; Devon Poniatowski is
Penny; Drew D’Amelia is Paul; Sarah Koniszewski is Essie, with
Patrick Grace as Ed. Brynna Pawlows is Alice, John Dentinger is
Tony, and Nick Padula and Devon Sosnowski are Mr. and Mrs. Kirby.
Max Allen is Mr. DePinna, who lives with the
Sycamores, and Sam Buntich and Michael Bryant are Rheba and
Donald, the servants. Boris Kolenkhov, Essie’s ballet instructor,
is played by Kevin Orlando.
Rounding out the cast are Alex Rizzo as
actress Gay Wellington, Nicholas Vigilante as Henderson from the
IRS, Emily Burke as the grand duchess Olga Katrina, and Tommy
Swimm, Eric Keyrouze, and Eric Treacy as J-men.
Dora Myers is the director, with Ron Jacobs as
producer, Peggy Hayes as assistant to the director, and Joe Kott
as production assistant. Sets are by Drew Myers, lighting by Tony
Krivitski, costumes by The Costumer, and sound by Savi Sound.
Homecoming t-shirts will be
sold in High School East from 3:30 pm-5:30 pm on
Monday-Wednesday. The shirts are sold on a
first-come, first-serve basis and cost $5.
The Shenendehowa girls'
varsity soccer team is currently undefeated and
