27th Annual Operation Turkey Food Drive held November 18th-22nd
New Oxford Elementary School faculty and students collected a total of 2,335 food items for Operation Turkey which went to the New Oxford Community Food Pantry and to provide their clients with food for Thanksgiving and beyond. With changes to the food stamp program, many families still struggling because of the economy, and an increase in the number of families applying for help, the Food Pantry needs our support more than ever.
This project also teaches our students about sharing and helping people in need. Included along with the non-perishable food items was $80 ($50 from the NOE PTO).
The following classes brought in the most food:
Kindergarten: Renaut – 101
1st grade: Lewis – 157
2nd grade: Osmun and Rickrode/Watkins – tied with 134
3rd grade: Gass – 150
Senior student musician to perform at the Discover Orange Bowl
Jordyn Graf, a senior at New Oxford High School, has been selected for the 2013 All Star Invitational Marching Band. She will be a part of All Star Marching Band as a Trumpet player. The All Star Invitational Marching Band unites talented performers from around the country by offering them the opportunity to showcase their skills at a national marching event and interact with our team of nationally recognized marching directors. Participation in the All Star Invitational Marching Band is limited to the finest high school performers from across North America.
Jordyn Graf auditioned for the All Star Band and was accepted after a review by the Selection Review Board. Acceptance to the elite group is a direct result of the talent, dedication, and achievements demonstrated in her application and audition videos. Jordyn will join other performers from the United States for two performances at one of the biggest games in college football, the Discover Orange Bowl.
Jordyn studies music with Mr. Tim Rohrbaugh and is a member of the New Oxford High School Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Concert Choir. Additionally, she is active in softball, church choir, and dance.
All Stars will come together for six days in Florida to practice and prepare for the performances. This exciting week includes the opportunity to work with the nation’s leading marching band directors and culminates in not one, but two performances on one of the biggest stages in college football – the Orange Bowl!
The 2013 directors include Dr. Kenneth Dye (Director of Bands, University of Notre Dame), Barry Bernhardt (Director of Bands, Florida International University), James Hudson (Marching Band Director, Arizona State University), Norm Ruebling (acclaimed percussion educator) and Wes Cartwright. The All Star Invitational Marching Band combines the skill of the country’s best marching students with the excitement of performing in front of nearly 75,000 fans.
Students support Blue Star Mothers and Wreaths Across America
Conewago Valley School District student organizations donated monies to Blue Star Mothers for their efforts toward the National Remembrance Ceremony to be held December 14th. This ceremony takes place at Arlington National Cemetery every year, and this year Blue Star Mothers are working hard to do this locally. They hope to lay 1,285 wreaths on the graves of veterans and fallen heroes at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Hanover.
On Veterans Day a total of $760 in donations was presented to Gloria Lewis, a Blue Star Mother who works in the New Oxford Middle School cafeteria, and Janet Albin, financial secretary of the local Blue Star Mothers. Lewis approached the District seeking help to pay for wreaths. The monies will pay for about 50 wreaths. Shown are Amanda Fuhrman, President, New Oxford High School Varsity Club; Lewis; Albin; Emma Britton, Secretary, and Carly Flickinger, Vice-President of New Oxford Middle School Student Council. Also making donations were New Oxford FFA and Conewago Valley Intermediate School Student Council.
Conewago Valley School District, in partnership with students, families, and the community, provides a safe learning environment that promotes academic engagement and social growth enabling students to
succeed in a diverse and changing world.
