Mass. — The Williamstown School Committee on Wednesday discussed the role of technology in education and, specifically, whether it is being overemphasized in the classroom.   The discussion was sparked by Principal Joelle Brookner's report on pupil performance on the 2017 Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System exam.   In addition to laying out the continued success of the school's children on the standardized test, Brookner noted that last spring the school's fourth-graders took the MCAS on computer for the first time and that the fourth- and fifth-graders will do so this year.   The school is phasing in a transition to meet the

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mount Greylock Regional School's name finally jibes with its reality.   The district's School Committee last week formally voted to change the name of the middle-high school to reflect the fact that it serves students in Grades 7 through 12, removing the word "high" from the title.   Although the two-town regional school district has been known as the Mount Greylock Regional School District since its inception, the one school it has governed (two more come on board Jan. 1, 2018) has been known officially as Mount Greylock Regional High School.   Principal Mary MacDonald on Tuesday brought the committee a request to adopt

ADAMS, Mass. — The kindergarten classes of Heather Emerson and Robin Poirot at Hoosac Valley Elementary are again offering their knowledge on where to get a turkey how to cook it.    From Cheerio stuffing to proper time and temperature — anywhere from 4 minutes to six days at at least 6 degrees — these children offer a range of recipes for a Thanksgiving turkey.    The photos in the story are from Poirot's class. The main photo at the top is from Emerson's class.        When I buy the turkey, it will be 2 pounds and about as big a Pilgrim kid. Mommy will cook it because she cooks everything. She is a good cook. She
