HARMONY: Various activities fill November
WESTOVER -- Seven band students got to travel to Curwensville High School on Nov. 16 for the annual county band event.
They split up into the junior high and senior high and practiced all day.
After a long and tiring day, the students traveled home and got some rest for the concert the next day.
The concert was held at 11 a.m. Nov. 17.
The junior high went first with their guest director, Ed Schwer.
They played a variety of pieces including some more classical songs and a medley from the musical "Grease."
The senior high finished up the concert with several classical pieces as well, and a tribute to all the men and women from the Armed Forces.
Their guest director was Chris Gankosky.
The elementary celebrated Thanksgiving with several activities.
On Nov. 20, the second-grade classes had their Thanksgiving breakfast.
Each student brought in an assigned breakfast item to contribute to the feast.
The students shared donuts, muffins, pancakes, sausage and juice boxes.
Before the early dismissal on Nov. 21, the primary grades rotated classrooms, making Thanksgiving crafts, watching a movie and eating a snack.
Today, there will be a bus parked outside of the school.
This bus, donated by Sunderland Transportation, will be accepting donations for the people affected by superstorm Sandy on the East Coast. You can drop off donations until 6 p.m.
The Harmony Music Boosters are holding their annual Christmas craft show on Saturday.
Come and enjoy shopping for homemade crafts and a soup and bake sale.
