Byron-Bergen fourth-grade class proposes idea for legislation

    Earlier this year, Fourth-Grade Teacher Craig Schroth and his students wrote to Senator Ranzenhofer with a suggestion for new legislation, a bill to designate yogurt as New York's official state snack. The fourth-graders developed the proposal while studying the history and government of New York State. Since then, Senator Ranzenhofer has introduced the class's bill in the New York State Senate.
