NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — In a football game, the two-minute warning signals that the end of the game is near. In reality, two minutes is a really, really, REALLY long time.

"That's been the hardest thing," admitted preschool teacher Michelle Nicholas, who twice daily shepherds pairs of tots into the bathroom, asks them if they can remember which color toothbrush belongs to them, lets them choose between pink and blue toothpaste, and helps them through the two-minute

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The McCann Technical School budget for fiscal 2018 is up 2.7 percent over this year, largely reflecting increasing fixed costs and level state funding.    The school's budget is up about $250,000, from $9.09 million to $9,340,159, and includes $88,000 in cuts. Some $3.7 million of the spending plan will be covered by assessments to its nine districts for operations, transportation and capital projects.

When Lenox High School's robotics team, Team Enginuity, canceled its field trip to the First Technology Challenge qualifier in Dedham, Mass., on Feb. 11 because of bad weather, two students persevered.

Ella King, senior and founder of Team Enginuity, received a group text between runs at a FIS Giant Slalom Race at Sugarbush Mountain in Vermont that her team was not going to the robotics meet.
