Education Briefs One-million bones, raises money and awareness
Ryan Summerlin April 30, 2013
Students and teachers from Park City Day School will participate in the One Million Bones project today at the school’s multi-purpose room from 6 7:30 p.m. The school has joined the One Million Bones and Students Rebuild in a global effort to cover the National Mall in Washington D.C. in June, with one-million handmade bones as a visual petition against humanitarian crises and global mass atrocities. Students are challenged worldwide to make bones, as a symbol of solidarity with victims and survivors of ongoing conflicts in places like the Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia. Each bone created by students generates $1 for humanitarian work in these regions. Students from other schools and community members who would like to participate may also attend the event.
Memorial scholarship created
A memorial scholarship has been set up through the Park City High School Community Scholarship Program for Lois Kannwischer. A music teacher in the community, Kannwischer has taught many PCHS band students over the past decade, passed away recently. Or those who would like to contribute to the scholarship fund, can contact Nancy Michalko, scholarship advisor at 435-643-5657.
Lunch team needed
Park City schools are looking for the input from community members to incorporate and encourage children to develop healthy palates. Director of Nutrition Services for the schools, Kathleen Britton is teaming up with Susan Odell, local chef, and Ann Bloomquist, marketing professional, to help shape students eating habits. Creating a team of parents, teachers, students and community members is needed to plan the effort for the next school year. If interested in joining the team, please email Bloomquist at firstname.lastname@example.org or Odell at email@example.com . The group is hoping to have a team compiled by the end of the school year.
