WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Before Tyler DeWitt did a TED Talk, before he had a website and a YouTube channel, before he received his Ph.D. in microbiology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, before he taught high school chemistry and biology in both the United States and South Korea, before he was a National Science Foundation fellow, he was just a student at Pine Cobble School.

On Feb. 27, DeWitt returned to the private school from which he graduated in 1997. It wasn't his first time back; he actually spoke at the school's commencement ceremony in 2013 and helped facilitate a STEAM summer camp session in 2018. And as often as he can, he comes back to Pine Cobble to

  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mount Greylock Regional School's athletic director last week appeared before the school committee to explain a program change that has riled some seventh-grade parents at the middle-high school.   Lindsey von Holtz laid out the reasoning behind a move announced in August to open the school's baseball program to students in eighth grade and up, rather than allowing seventh-graders, as was done the last few years.   Like other schools that have middle schoolers in the same building with high school students, Mount Greylock is allowed to open athletic opportunities to the younger grades according to the rules of the Massachusetts

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Five months after it moved into the renovated Mount Greylock Regional School, the district has full access to the building.   Mount Greylock Superintendent Kimberley Grady said Tuesday that the district has received a certificate of occupancy for the middle-high school, an approval that includes use of the school's auditorium.   The auditorium, which along with the gym was one of two public spaces remaining from the old Mount Greylock, has been off-limits to the school because of construction delays.   While the school opened for classes in September under a temporary certificate of occupancy, the auditorium remained closed.   At last
