St. Boniface School To Participate In Nationwide National Anthem Sing-A-Long

September 2, 2015 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

twintowersatnightOn Friday, September 11, St. Boniface Elementary School will participate in the American Public Education Foundation’s (APEF) annual singing of the National Anthem.

According to music instructor Rachel Becker, the students will present a 30 minute program on the Star-Spangled Banner at the Elgin Community Center beginning at 12:15 p.m. that day.   The public is invited to attend.
On that day, students are being asked to join together and simultaneously sing the National Anthem. That request is being made by the APEF which will provide free, educational resources on the words, meaning and history of the National Anthem.
The National Anthem movement began two years ago and asks students to unite and sing together.  There are numerous events taking place around the country.
“Getting students involved in learning the words and meaning of our nation’s anthem, as well as uniting as a country on 9/11 is powerful,” says Mia Toschi, Founder of the National Anthem Movement and APEF National Director of Strategic Partnerships. “When students come together to celebrate citizenship, everyone wins.”
Students, parents and teachers can learn more about the National Anthem movement by logging onto www.theapef.org. A rich and full curriculum, created by Retired Principal Maria Basilko Davis, MEd   will provide lessons for Social Studies, Geography, History, Music and English teachers. Mrs. Davis’s school, Duncan Elementary, located on Fort Hood, Texas, received recognition both as a Texas School of Character and as a National School of Character. She called it a “personal honor” to create these materials.”
President of the American Public Education Foundation David Pickler adds, “It is with great pride that the American Public Education Foundation will provide these materials to every school in the United States for free. It will be incredible to see students – coast to coast - join together in unity.”
The Star-Spangled Banner” is a poem written in 1814 by Francis Scott Key as he watched British ships bombard Fort McHenry, Maryland, during the War of 1812. The song became the National Anthem by an act of Congress in 1931. Although it has four stanzas, the most commonly sung stanza is the first one.
Educators are encouraged to go to the website, www.theapef.org to download free resources and also sign up to sing. This year’s event concludes a year-long celebration commemorating the 200th birthday of the National Anthem and the foundation hopes to break the Guinness Book of World Records simultaneous sing-a-long of the National Anthem. If the record is broken, an announcement will be made on September 14, 2015 – the birthday of the National Anthem.

Drug Dog Finds No Drugs In EPS, PJ Lockers Following Surprise Inspection

Good News — No Drugs Found At EPS, PJ Schools

Antelope County Sheriff Bob Moore just came into the newspaper office to report that a surprise inspection of lockers at schools in Elgin found no trace of drugs.
“I’m happy to report the drug dog had no hits on lockers at either schools,” he said Tuesday afternoon. “It’s a testament to the parents and staff that no drugs were found.”
The surprise inspection of lockers was known only to law enforcement personnel and administration officials at Elgin Public and Pope John. Not even the teachers at the schools were aware of the event. Plans for the searches were in the works for the past six weeks, the sheriff said.
Two officers from Antelope County Sheriff’s Department were joined by one officer and a drug dog named “Senna” from the Madison County Sheriff’s Department.
“These drug dogs are good,” Moore said. “If it’s there, they’ll smell it.” The only hit Senna made at the schools were in lockers where the officers planted drugs as a “test.”
“Senna never hit on any other locker,” the sheriff said.
Administrators, Moore said, had the schools go into “lockdown” mode during the searches which were conducted at 1 p.m. (EPS) and 2 p.m. (PJCC).
EPS Superintendent Dan Polk told The Elgin Review he was “pleased and happy” with the results of the search. He said the school utilizes law enforcement in activities like this as part of continuing efforts to protect and maintain a safe environment for learning. “Our good kids did us proud,” he said.
Pope John Principal Betty Getzfred also commented. “A safe and secure place of learning is vital for our students and staff at Pope John XXIII.  The search completed on Tuesday in conjunction with the Antelope County Sheriff’s department was deemed as successful.  The staff and students followed the protcol stated in our safe and secure plan.”
