A program to honor veterans was held at the Susquehanna Community High School on Monday, November 12, in the high school gym. Mr. John Seigle, the new public speaking teacher in the district, coordinated the program.
Pictured (l-r) are: Karlyn Smith, Ward Stanford, Dan Kelly, Dan Snyder, Mikela Ackley.
The students listened to some very patriotic music presented by their own band and chorus. Selections included "The Star Spangled Banner," "Marches of the Armed Forces," "America the Beautiful," and "God Bless the USA." Dramatic readings were performed by classmates Ward Stanford, Mikela Ackley, Karlyn Smith, Dan Snyder, and Dan Kelly. Remarks from Principal Michael Lisowski followed a video presentation. In light of what has happened in recent months, the students were more aware this year, than in any other, of the contributions our vets have made in helping to preserve the freedoms our nation enjoys.
What bird comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving? Thats right, the turkey! Instead of making plans to cook this fine fowl, the first grade students at Blue Ridge Elementary School in New Milford, decided to construct a turkey out of McDonalds super-size French fry containers, as part of a thematic unit on Thanksgiving. You can visit their super-size turkeys displayed at the McDonalds in Hallstead. The Blue Ridge first grade would like to extend a big thank you to the Hallstead McDonalds for giving them French fry containers and coupons. Happy Thanksgiving!
