A “Lively” Day of the Dead
Students in Ben Clark and Bernadette Fugaro’s class at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School in Washington Township celebrated winning Duffield Farm Market’s scarecrow-making contest with a hayride and pizza party. According to the farm, the students’ “Day of the Dead”-themed scarecrow won the most out of the nearly 10,000 votes cast.
Several students at Signal Hill Elementary School in Voorhees created winning posters for the Fire Prevention Poster Contest sponsored by the state Department of Community Affairs, Division of Fire Safety and the state Fire Prevention and Protection Association. The theme was "Smoke Alarms: A sound you can live with.” Students were asked to depict ways smoke alarms could save lives.
At the USSBA 2010 New Jersey State Championships held on Oct. 16 at Washington Township High School, the Lenape High School Marching Band took top honors for the second year in a row. In addition to the top title, Lenape’s presentation theme, “It’s About Time,” also won Best Color Guard, Best Percussion, Best Visuals and Best Overall Effect.
