Character Education at Hoosic Valley

You can follow along with the responsibility announcements too! Each mornings announcement will be posted under the Virtue of the Month logo to the right.


HV Takes 2nd at 2015 Top Form Lift Off

March 3, 2015 - The Hoosic Valley Power Team finished in 2nd place at the 2015 Top Form Lift Off competition at Catholic Central High School this past Friday. The team missed first place by just 30lbs. Hoosic Valley finished ahead of Lansingburgh, Cambridge, Green tech, CBA, Salem, and Holy Trinity.

The student athletes were tested in the squat, bench press, and dead lift. Six Hoosic Valley lifters finished with a total of 1,000 lbs or above:

  • Freshman Charles Purcell and Andrew Turriglio topped 1,000 lbs.
  • Sophomore Frank Adams finished with a 1,020lb total and Nick Napoli finished with 1,100lb total including an amazing 475 lb dead lift!
  • Junior Jeff Carrozza finished with a 1,035lb total
  • Senior Raffi Barkamian had the highest squat for the Valley at 400lbs plus he finished with an 1,100lb total.

Plenty of players returned home with medals and trophies. The power team traveled with 38 lifters ranging from grades 7-12 . Coach Porcelli would like to thank the parents and the administration for all of their support. And a special thanks goes out to the lifters who believe that getting bigger, faster, and stronger makes us a consistently competitive program for years to come.


Spring Sports Beginning Soon

March 2, 2015 - Attention Jr. Sr. High Students, if you are thinking about participating in a spring sport you must have a current physical and an updated interval health history form completed by parents. Forms can be turned in to the School Nurse, Mrs. Barton, starting now. The Nurse will then issue an updated blue card. For student safety, health records are reviewed and blue cards issued prior to each season.

All student athletes must have a new blue card before they can start practicing for spring sports.  Please contact the nurse if you have any questions HSNurse@hoosicvalley.k12.ny.us.
