Blue Ridge Elementary School celebrated their annual Sharing Parade on Wednesday, December 16. It is the 25th year for this seasonal program. During the month of December, students and teachers are busy collecting food items they bring in to share with others who may need a little lift during the holidays. This year’s Sharing Parade theme was friendship and the new theme song was titled “Be a Friend.”
Fifth grade classmates, Jessie Marvin, Kelsey Gentile, and Emma Glezen wrote an essay titled “Be a Friend.” The main idea of their essay was that being a friend means to help, care, and be there for each other.
The message was the importance of being a good friend - to listen and be there for others and to show them that you care. Teachers also work with their students to write sharing thoughts. Many students worked with a friend or friends to write their thoughts about friendship. The program consisted of many heartwarming songs about sharing, caring, and helping each other as well as wonderful sharing thoughts written and read by the students. It is a Sharing Parade tradition to ask an adult from the community to share a thought as well. Keeping in the theme of friendship, two highly respected community members and life long friends, Mr. Tom Chamberlain and Mr. Alan Wilmarth, shared their thoughts on what a good friend is to them.
Blue Ridge Elementary’s Sharing Parade was able to help 30 district families by providing festively wrapped boxes of food items which included a ham and 5 lb. bag of potatoes generously donated by the elementary PTO. The high school Pride Club and Toys-N-Tots, both spearheaded by Mrs. Kristen Hinkley, also donated gifts for each family.
Working together, Blue Ridge Elementary was able to provide hope and encouragement during the holiday season to local families. In return, the students and faculty got a good feeling knowing that they had helped and were good friends to others.
The Blue Ridge Middle School Reading Department recently provided the students in grades 6 though 8 with 178 new books at no cost.
Mrs. Trish Gilboy, Mrs. Lisa Stepniak, and Mrs. Ashley Goff, Blue Ridge Middle School reading teachers, hold Scholastic Book Fairs twice yearly. They saved their Scholastic dollars - which are reward points - for three years, and recently attended the Scholastic Warehouse Sale in Dunmore to cash them in.
The students were excited about having new books in their classroom libraries as well as new choices for literature circles.
