Today marks the 34th anniversary of the Challenger Shuttle explosion that took the lives of seven crew members including teacher Christa McAuliffe. Pardon me for a personal reflection. As a 4th grader and like so many students across the nation, we had been prepped by our teachers for this moment. We studied the aeronautics program, reviewed the lessons Mrs. McAuliffe would be conducting from space, talked about the training she endured to become a civilian and female astronaut! Her selection made it seem that anyone of us young people could choose and do anything. As other classes joined us in our classroom, we huddled close to the roll-cart TV. We joined Mission Control in the countdown... BLAST OFF! The cheers were loud and excited! And then 73 seconds later it all changed. Our youth today have become desensitized now to horrendous video, but we had never seen something like that. It was very awful to watch and experience as a young person. Now, I can admire the way our teachers gathered their emotions and talked to us, reassured us, and were honest with us. It is often said that heroes walk among us. How very true. Christa McAuliffe has become an example of that for my generation. She provided us with a public example of the lengths that educators of any type go through to inspire learning and find connections to ALL of their students. Figuratively and at times literally, educators give their lives to young people. In honor of Christa McAuliffe, remember the dedication of one or more of your "teachers". And teachers come in many forms! If you have the opportunity to do so, thank them. Thank you, Mrs. McAuliffe. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sdut-challenger-disaster-mcauliffes-students-have-gone-2016jan27-story.html view image

The sledding hill was kind of a byproduct of outside landscaping leftovers, and yet a wonderful one! The hill is an exciting focal spot whenever it's open. Yesterday, the older elementary students were caught with big smiles and laughs enjoying the sledding hill. view image

This past Saturday there were 19 middle school and high school students that participated in Honors Choir at Mineral Point. They spent the day working on difficult music with other excellent musicians throughout our music conference. Mrs. Niemeyer is very proud of their representation of Ithaca, especially because of their positive attitude, respect, and beautiful singing! view image
