LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT FATHER’S DAY OUTING? Bring the whole family to Cinemapolis at 2pm for an afternoon of laughs with Laurel & Hardy in their 1937 comedy classic “Way Out West.”

“Way Out West” will have all your little cowhands singing with joy, and Dad will love the ticket prices: just $2 for children, $3 for adults (Dad is free!), with a maximum charge of $10 per family. Perfect for all ages, there will be an introduction by David Moreland, along with a Looney Toons cartoon short before the film.

Here’s a song & dance clip from the movie

Often cited as Laurel & Hardy’s best movie, “Way Out West” plays on Sunday, June 18th at 2PM at Cinemapolis, 120 E Green Street in downtown Ithaca, just south of the Commons. It’s part of the monthly Family Classics Picture Show film series — kid-friendly movies at family-friendly prices. Made possible through the generous support of the Ainslie-Reilly Group at Morgan Stanley, with additional help from Mama Goose.

Fall Creek teachers receive 5 IPEI Grants! We are pleased to announce that Fall Creek received five grants from Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI) during its first round of applications for this academic calendar!

The first was awarded to Lydia Dolch for her proposal, “Accessing Art.” Students across grade levels study works from the permanent collection at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum with Carol Hockett and bring them to life for people in the community with special needs.

The second grant will be used by Jonathan Keefner to create the Modern Music Classroom which will introduce JamHub’s as a collaborative and progressive way of rehearsing and recording an electronic based ensemble.

The third is for, “From Seed to Table,” proposed by Robert Novick. Through the direction and instruction of Novick and experts from Cornell and TC3, students will learn about plant biology, the impact of environmental factors on food/ crop growth, and set up a functioning container vegetable garden in Fall Creek’s school greenhouse.

The fourth was awarded to Varya Siegel and Sarah Smith. They will use a multi-sensory approach to introduce three new social skills each month and support children in using these pro-social skills throughout the day. For each social skill targeted they will also send home a short, simple hand-out to families so they can follow through at home.

Finally, Catherine Hart was provided funding for her proposal, “Can You Build It? Using STEM Based Building Manipulative/Materials to Create Structures through Team Challenges.”

IPEI would love to hear about the student experience. If you would like to do a short write up about one of these grants that could be used for media purposes please contact
