Meet Cory Metz



Cory is an 8th grade student at New Castle Junior High School. Just like his fellow peers, he attends school and does his work.  What makes him the above-average 8th grader you may ask? Recently, two teachers observed Cory picking up fallen American flags, which had decorated the school lawn in honor of Veterans Day.  It wasn’t just one flag. It was many flags.  When asked why he chose to take such action, he remarked that the American flag should never touch the ground; furthermore, it is a sign of disrespect.  He also shared that he has family members who have served in the military, and that he would like to serve in the Marines. THANK YOU CORY! You are an outstanding young man and serve as a great role model for all students.

Grilled Cheese Cooking Challenge

Students in Miss Wiseman's Family and Consumer Science classes had a "cheesy" culminating activity for their final exam: Grilled Cheese Cooking Challenge.  Students created gourmet creations using their choice of bread, cheese, and toppings.  Student creations consisted of pizza grilled cheese, loaded pierogi grilled cheese, and a breakfast grilled cheese with homemade spicy mayo, just to name a few.  Guest judges included Jr High Principal Mrs. Morell, Dean Mrs. Siciliano, and teachers Mr. Samples, Mrs. Vournous, Mrs. MIller, and Mrs. Wilson.  All of the judges complimented the students on their creativity and their attention to detail when plating.  The creations the students made were both pleasing to the eye and the stomach.  The winning students were awarded with a pizza party donated by Miss Wiseman on Monday, October. 28th. 
The winning students were: 
Victoria Altman, Joelle Bradley, Chris Carbone, Angelo DeSalvo, Katara Eggleston, Nevaeh Gramsky, Robert Hellon, Olivia Hood, William Hughes, Georgia McCarter, Mariah McIltrot, Tresherlyn Signer, Madison Wyant, and Tristen Wojnarowski

The Kindness Rock Project

Last school year, Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer’s students were inspired after one of their peers brought a painted rock to school one day and shared it with the class. The rock was painted with a cat and an inspirational message that said “Smile.” On the back of the rock was a hashtag, #thekindnessrockproject, and the words “keep or pass along for someone to find.” The students became very curious and began asking questions. Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer realized that this would be a great opportunity to get their students involved in a project that promoted positivity and mindfulness. They had the students turn this into a research assignment and find out exactly why receiving a positive message could change a person’s mindset.
