Calendar spotlights exceptional students
ALBANY, N.Y. (Aug.
14, 2018) – Great
things are happening in Albany's public schools. And that's partly
because we have so many great students!
The 2018-19 school
calendar features the faces of 26 exceptional young people in the
City School District of Albany. They are but a small fraction of the
outstanding students who attend our schools.
The calendar students stand out in a variety of ways. Some excel in
academics, sports, fine arts, visual arts or performing arts. Other are
actively involved in community service. And still other are leaders,
problem-solvers and scholars, like Onovu Otitigbe-Dangerfield of
Albany High School pictured at right.
Choosing individual students to represent their school and the district
always presents an enormous challenge because so many of our 9,500 kids
meet the definition of exceptional.
