We Believe - “In the last two years, two Cohoes graduates were recognized in the Albany Business Review’s ’40 under 40’ awards, which is really something to be proud of,” said Co-principal Bryan Wood. “We want our students to know that these people graduated from Cohoes, and they believe in them, too.”

We believe: (VIEW VIDEO)
This September at Cohoes High School, administrators, faculty and staff are taking a new approach to support academic success and encourage students to set and achieve personal goals. “We believe” is the beginning of a statement. Whether it’s a broad statement such as, ‘We believe you can do this,’ or ‘we believe you can graduate,’ or a specific statement for just one student, we want students to know that the Cohoes High School community believes in them,” said Co-principal Joseph Rajczak.

Please take a few minutes to look over our newsletters for some great information and upcoming events going on at both the Watervliet and Cohoes housing authorities. Thanks to a donation from Pioneer Savings we were able to get our free tenant internet up and running at the Manor sites.

Now we are 100% covered in all our sites serving over 800 apartments and along with our PC program now anyone can have a FREE PC in their apartment and connect to the internet.

As we have for the past 5 years, this June we have our presentation by giving a FREE laptop for any high school public housing or section 8 senior going off to college in the fall. Every year we usually give out between 15-20 laptops. We look to the general community to help us pay for these laptops. Each laptop costs us $329 and is fully loaded. If your business or you know someone that would be interested in helping us provide us the dollars to purchase these laptops please send a check to the Watervliet Housing Development Fund, a tax-exempt organization.

Help Save the Environment!

Recycle Your Old Household Batteries

 Help Save the Environment! Recycle Your Old Household BatteriesThe Cohoes & Watervliet Housing Authorities are sponsoring this program to help discourage batteries from being thrown in our landfills. All you have to do is tape all the positive terminals and drop them in the buckets provided at City Hall or at either of the Housing Authorities. It’s quick, easy and saves the environment. In addition, City Hall will also be collecting any cell phones (no chargers or accessories) that you are looking to donate.
For more information contact Charles Patricelli at 273-4717 or email at Cpatricelli@cohoeshousing.org.
===========================
The Watervliet/Cohoes Housing Authorities are spearheading a household battery recycling program. This program can help avoid the improper disposal of hundreds or even thousands of pounds of batteries leaking hazardous wastes in our soils.  The housing authorities uses nearly  1000 batteries each year for all their battery operated smoke detectors and will be sending those back and felt that offering it open to the city residents was the right thing to do. It will cost a few extra dollars and if the program gets too large, we’ll seek outside funds to help support the program.

Residents can drop off batteries at any of our maintenance shops, main offices and we’re soliciting businesses that may want to participate and we’ll add them to our list below as they notify us.
