Turtle Release

Take a look at this year’s turtle release in the Haverstraw River.  These are turtles rescued during the spring and early summer as mother turtles cross Western Highway to lay eggs in the hills nearby.

Open Makerspace Project

This year at Cottage Lane, we will be piloting a new program in the Makerspace. If  YOU have an idea for an invention that can be built in the space, we will be open during Period 7 on Days 5 and 6 and Period 1 every day during Cycle B for them to come in and create! Just fill in the form below with your idea. It MUST be something which can be made in the Makerspace (the form will help guide you).   Students must also commit to making up any missed work in the classroom. If  you are not able to come during the periods we are open, DON’T WORRY!  If the pilot goes well, we will open on other periods later in the school year!

The form is here:
