Student Honored For Good Deed March 15, 2018
Price School junior Gauge Fox was working at his part-time job when he and a co-worker discovered an unconscious man in a restaurant restroom. He quickly jumped into action, calling 911 and following the 911 operator's instructions. The man regained consciousness as the ambulance was en route. Gauge waited with the customer until emergency responders could take care of him.
When his teacher, Amy Wingerter, heard about this story, she nominated Gauge for a Do the Right Thing award. For his efforts, Gauge was awarded a T-shirt, a gift card, a certificate, and a pizza coupon.
The Do the Right Thing program recognizes students in the Lower Dauphin community who have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments, attitude or outstanding efforts. Any adult over the age of 18 may nominate a child.

Ackerman To Present At Conference March 7, 2018
Pequea Valley High School facilitator Jim Ackerman was recently selected to present a paper at the 2018 International Society for Research and Promotion of Wind Music (Internationale Gesellschaft zur Erforschung und Förderung der Blasmusik - IGEB) Biannual Conference in Wadgassen, Saarland, Germany. The international conference meets to promote scholarship in the area of wind band music.
The presentation topic is Harmoniemusik of Czech composer Paul Wranitzky. Ackerman has been studying the music of this composer for over a decade through additions to the Wranitzky.com website, travels to his hometown in Moravia, and assistance with concerts of his music in the U.S.
As early as 1966, a small circle of wind-music researchers, performers, and amateurs had met in Sindelfingen, Germany, to establish a Committee for the Investigation of Wind Music, the result being IGEB. IGEB was founded in 1974 at the first scientific congress for the exploration of wind music at the Conservatory for Music and the Performing Arts (presently the University for Music and the Performing Arts) in Graz, Austria. The aim of the society is the exploration of all aspects of wind music by means of international congresses at which musicologists, conductors, interested musicians, and amateurs can exchange ideas and knowledge. The IGEB currently has more than 300 members from more than 30 countries.

A Seuss-tacular Week Of Reading March 6, 2018
Bright colors, whimsical characters, creative sayings, and stacks of books authored by Dr. Seuss decorated the office, hallways, and even some classrooms at Kreutz Creek Elementary for Read Across America week, which was celebrated from Feb. 26 to March 2.
Read Across America is a nationwide event that encourages reading and honors the birthday of children's author Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel), who was born on March 2, 1904. The goal of the celebration is to instill in children a love of reading and learning through special activities and incentives.
Teachers can sign up for special readers to visit their classroom during the week. Superintendent Dr. Darla Pianowski, who is set to retire at the end of the 2017-18 school year, has served as a guest reader in classrooms ever since fourth-grade teacher Renee Bieniasz initiated Read Across America at Kreutz Creek four years ago. Other readers included Hellam Township Police Chief Doug Pollack, Hellam Fire Company firefighters, Penn State York baseball players, disc jockeys from a local radio station, Dr. Gordon Bell, and state Rep. Keith Gillespie. The idea behind inviting guest readers is that if adults are excited about reading, children will be too, explained Bieniasz.
Students in several classrooms had the chance to witness presentations and interact with Keystone Pet Enhanced Therapy Services (KPETS) trainers and therapy dogs and local wildlife rehabilitators Steve and Mitzi Eaton, who brought owls with them.
Many second-graders in April Stough's class listed meeting the owls as one of the highlights of Read Across America. Dressing up for the week of spirit days was also high on the students' list of favorites. The lineup for the week included Hat Day, Favorite Color Day, Wacky Wednesday, and Crazy Hair Day, as well as a day where students could dress like a favorite Dr. Seuss character.
Teachers were welcome to join in the fun, and some - like Bieniasz - took it a step further. "Of course me being the crazy teacher (I got) into costume after specials each day," said Bieniasz with a laugh. Each day when her students returned from art, music, or another special class, Bieniasz was dressed as a different Seuss character.
Faculty members Andrew Pry, David Donahue, and Lori Kaye planned and led a kickoff assembly for the student body on Feb. 26, sharing information about Dr. Seuss and the purpose behind Read Across America. Donahue, who teaches music, even wrote a song that he taught to the students during the assembly. Kaye introduced the 22 third-grade students who write for the school's recently formed newspaper, the Kreutz Creek Chronicle.
Fifth-graders had the chance to give book talks over the intercom during the school's daily morning announcements. Other festivities included playing Seuss-themed bingo at the end of the day, when Pry called off book titles over the intercom. Winners took home prizes donated by the school's Parent Teacher Organization.

Additionally, physical education teachers receive free training on how to teach the program to students. PGA professionals will coordinate and visit local schools and help teach and offer support to teachers.

Students Enjoy Literary Experiences March 6, 2018
Students in Pequea Valley School District recently enjoyed a variety of educational experiences.
Students from Pequea Valley High School who participate in book club with high school English facilitator Tom Kauffman recently visited Paradise Elementary and Salisbury Elementary to help celebrate Read Across America. The high-schoolers read Dr. Seuss stories aloud and completed activities with the elementary students.
Salisbury Elementary also took part in Stop, Drop, and Read. Everyone in the building, which includes prekindergarten through grade six, enjoyed 15 to 30 minutes of uninterrupted reading in the hallways.
Additionally, Salisbury Elementary facilitator Courtney Hollenbaugh and her class recently read a variety of Dr. Seuss books. Hollenbaugh did an activity with kindergartners to engage them in their reading as they learned about Dr. Seuss, the morals in his books, and his characters. They read the story "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" and discussed how the king was ungrateful for the normal weather, which resulted in the townspeople mixing together a creation called Oobleck. Students then created their own Oobleck. When they added force and pressure to the Oobleck, the mixture became a solid state. However, when they released that pressure, the Oobleck mixture became a liquid.
