Free Screenings For Child Development

As you watch your child grow, you notice when he or she rolls over, holds a spoon or walks and talks. You may also see that he or she is growing or developing differently than a cousin, a friend’s child or a sibling. If you are wondering about your child’s development, call for a free screening.

Tuesday, April 24, representatives from Tri-County Human Services Early Intervention and Head Start will provide screenings at Mountain View Elementary School from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. Families with children aged birth to three are encouraged to take advantage of this free service.

While there is no cost to participate, you must schedule an appointment. Screenings take about a half hour. To schedule a screening, please call Cindy G. Reynolds at (570) 434-2181 ext. 450.

Fantastic Finale For EL Forensics Team

The Elk Lake Forensics Team successfully wrapped up its regular season at a Scranton Catholic Forensics League Tournament at Pocono Mountain West High School on February 10.

Pictured are EL Forensics Team Place-winners at February Scranton CFL Tournament, Molly Copeland – First Place in Varsity LD Debate and Matthew Walters – Second Place in Novice Extemporaneous Speaking.

Senior Molly Copeland, in Varsity Lincoln-Douglas Debate, led the team in its final Scranton CFL Tournament before the national qualifying tournament in early March.

Copeland compiled an undefeated 4 win and 0 loss record in the preliminary rounds by defeating debaters from Shikellamy, Meyers, and Pocono Mountain West High Schools, and advanced to Finals.

In Finals, Copeland defeated Ashley Trice from Danville High School and captured the Varsity LD Debate Championship.

Copeland has now won Varsity LD Debate at both Scranton CFL Tournaments this season.

Sophomore Matthew Walters, in only his first tournament in the event, placed second in Novice Extemporaneous Speaking.

“This was an excellent wrap up to the season. The team will now go into the qualifying season with a lot of momentum,” commented EL Forensics Director Keith Brosious.
